My name is Doodle, and I am in search of my furever home. My foster mom and dad call me The Dude and I abide. I would love to have a fur sibling similar to my size as I live and play well with all smaller breed dogs I have met in my foster home. Larger dogs make me nervous and I can get excited and barky with them. I am 9 years old and came to DREAM Dachshund Rescue as an owner surrender. I am the outdoors type as I love going on walks and hanging out in the yard so an active family would best suit me. I also love meeting new people when I'm out and about in my neighborhood. I will bark at first but only because I want attention. My foster mom and dad think I am awesome. I have a very laid back temperament and love to snuggle with my humans and foster fur siblings. Toys are a lot of fun for me and I even got to pick out my own at a Pet Store! I am working on the finer points of house training. A regular schedule of walks really helps me. A fenced in your would be ideal for me.
If you are interested in adopting Doodle, you can fill out an application right on our website! Go to dreamhappytails.org/adoptform.shtml . Doodle 's adoption fee is $350.00. All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds. Doodle will go to his/her 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.
