My name is Thomas.  My foster mom named me that because I remind her of a tank engine.  I just keep going and going.  I love to go for walks.  I know just when the walking times are and I'm sitting at the door ready to go.  All my foster sisters and brothers (and there are a lot) are bigger than me but I keep right up with them.  One of them is so big mom calls him a horse but I dont't think he is really a horse.  That would be silly.

I also love to eat.  I have been on a diet, kind of, since living here.  It's called the "no little ones to feed me all day" diet but I don't mind.  It's healthier for me and all the walking I'm doing will help me lose a couple of pounds.

I have met so many nice people since I have come to live here and I love them all.  Even the kids, but I would prefer to have older children in my house.  I'm not a toy and little ones sometimes get carried away because of my size.

Now I'm going to tell you my favorite thing in the world.  Are you listening? Because this is the most important thing ever! I love to sleep with my people. Did you hear me?  I love to sleep with my people.  I snuggle right in under the covers ad never move again until the morning.  That is the best ever!!  Well, that, and all the kisses my mom gives me and it's so many kisses.

Thank you for listening.  I hope you would like to meet me and give me my forever and ever home.

Adoption Fee:  $150.00 + $45.00 for a health certificate if going over state lines (required by law).  Dogs adopted in New England are subject to additional rules and regulations by the state departments of agriculture. Complying with these regulations is expensive for our rescue, and all dogs adopted in New England states are subject to an additional $135 fee to help cover a portion of these expenses. 

Transportation Help

If you see a furbaby that is a match for your family, don’t let distance stand in the way of your adoption. LPDR can work with you to have a volunteer transport to assist with transportation or refer you to a paid transport.

About Little Paws Dachshund Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Little Paws Dachshund Rescue is a non-profit animal rescue that specializes in finding permanent homes for dachshunds.

We strive to make the lives of all dogs better through action, advocacy, awareness and education.

Our Adoption Process...

6 Step Adoption Process

We require:

1) Application - (While we encourage you to let us know on your application if one of our dogs has captured your interest, we use this simply as a guide for matching and your listing of specific dog in no way implies claim to this particular dog)

NOTE: Adoption Applications expire 6 months from the date of receipt. If you have already submitted an Adoption Application and it has been longer than 6 months, you will need to fill out a new Adoption Application.

2) Reference Checks - All references will be checked prior to home visit. We will contact your current vet, if you have one, for a reference.

3) Application Review - Processor reviews the application, calls the vet if you have one, verifies vaccinations and spay/neuter. We email personal references (if email is provided) or call them if necessary. Email is best since as references can respond when they are available.

4) Home Visit - A volunteer will come to your home to visit with you and discuss care of dachshunds. Also, the volunteer will look for any potential problems and check to be sure that your fencing is secure. Your home visit does not mean you have been approved.

5) Approval - After the above steps have been completed all your information will be reviewed and a decision will be made about adoption. If at this point you are approved to adopt, LPDR will help guide you to the appropriate dog for your family.

6) Contract - For the protection of the dogs we place, everyone that adopts a dachshund from LPDR will be required to sign an adoption contract. If you would like additional information on our adoption contract you can email and a copy of our contract will be sent to you electronically.
