Shorty is too sweet to even describe. Her owner passed away and Shorty needed someone to take her in and help her find her forever home. Shorty was loved very, very much and it has led her to being very over weight at the present time. We have had her on a weight loss program since the day she arrived. She gets around very well for having the excess weight to carry around and she loves taking walks. We would want her kept on her diet when she goes into her new home. Losing the excess weight will add years to her life. She is 9-10 yrs old. Dachshunds are known for long life spans, commonly living 16 and more years. Once Shorty loses her additional pounds, she is a very good candidate to live that long! Other than needing to have her amount of food supervised, she is ready to find a new human to give all her love to. Shorty is a black and tan longhair. I recently clipped her coat to get rid if some tangles and to make her feel a little cooler.
We are a group of volunteers that love the Dachshund breed. We foster each rescue so that we get to know each as an individual to help us place each in the best suited home for that dogs' needs. We will not re-home a 'biter' or a terminally ill dog with our knowledge. We want each adopter to get a loving and healthy pet that will make a wonderful companion and addition to their household. The dogs' are our first priority and finding them their perfect forever home is our goal.
Come Meet Our Pets...
Our rescues can be met with an appointment. We do attend adoption events throughout the year in Tucson. We are listed on Petfinder and many veterinarians refer people to us, so does the Humane Society and often Animal Care Center.
Our Adoption Process...
We have an application obtainable by emailing us for one. We require references. Our fees vary by dog with puppies having the highest adoption fees. All adoption fees are put into the medical fund so that we may rescue and seek all veterinary care needed for each new rescued dog. All are spayed/neutered, vaccinations updated, health exam, any health issues tended to and each is micro-chipped prior to going to their new home.
