Facts about Rusty

  • Breed: Dachshund
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 16-090
Rusty is a 7 year old, 16lb boy with a beautiful red coat and he is sweet as the day is long. Don't let Rusty's gray face deceive you, this little guy is a fiesty ball of fun by day and a sweet cuddly lap dog by night.

He gets along with other dogs and kids but kitties are a no. He wants to eat everyone else's food so he needs to fed separately! He loves to hunt and enjoys being outside and snuggling with his people is his favorite pastime.

He doesn't mind being in a crate but behaves perfectly when left outside of his crate while you are away. He has long outgrown the chewing puppy stage. He is house trained but can have an accident if he is not kept on a schedule. A true perfect gentleman.

He would enjoy a family who is somewhat active and likes to go for adventures, whether it is sniffing around the neighborhood or walks in the park.

This sweet guy needs a forever family who will give him a lap or two, a couch and bed to call his own.

If you are interested in adopting Rusty, you can fill out an application right on our website! Go to title="Online Application" href="" target="_blank"> . Rusty 's adoption fee is $380.00. All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds. Rusty will go to his new home microchipped, altered, heartworm tested, and up to date on vaccinations. Most dogs' veterinary expenses are greater than our adoption fees.

DREAM is an all-volunteer rescue group, and we focus on the Atlanta, North Georgia and Savannah area. Because we are all volunteers, we can consider applications only within an hour of these areas. DREAM does not recommend purebred dachshunds for families with children under 5, or families planning to have children during the dog's lifetime. Dachshunds are often not patient with little kids, and kids can accidentally hurt a doxie's back.

About DREAM Dachshund Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We envision a time when every dachshund in Georgia has a loving home for its entire life. We believe that the welfare of our companion animals is an indication of the health of our society. We see the current welfare of our companion animals as a disease. To treat the symptoms of this disease, we rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome dachshunds in need. To treat the causes of this disease, we educate the public on compassionate dog guardianship of any breed. We want to have a deep, direct impact in a limited geographic area, rather than a small impact in a large geographic area.
