Cricket is a sweet little about 8 year old Dachshund lady. (The shelter estimated her to be 6-10 but now that she is well she appears on the younger end).  She was sick, weak and full of heartworms when LPDR rescued her from a high-kill shelter in South Carolina. When she went to her foster home, she stayed in her bed for two weeks, too weak and scared to move and socialize with the other dogs and humans. She was treated for heartworms, a wicked skin allergy and had 20 teeth removed. Since then, Cricket has bloomed into  an amazing little dog that loves everyone. She is so affectionate and loves back and belly rubs. When you hold her and snuggle, she makes these little groaning noises that let you know that she loves and appreciates you. She is mostly a lap dog but will get frisky from time to time and want us to play and will chase you. You would not believe the transformation in Cricket. All she needed was some TLC and now her true personality shines. Cricket would love to have a home of her own, where she can forget about all the bad things in her past and enjoy her future being spoiled like she deserves. Cricket is good with dogs, not sure about cats and would enjoy children over 12 years of age. She walks great on a leash and is working on her house training. She is spayed and UTD on all vaccines.


Adoption Fee:  $250.00 + $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. This fee is non refundable if dog is returned. Fill out an adoption application TRANSPORTATION HELP! If you see a furbaby that would be a match for your family, please 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.

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.
