Max is a cuddly senior gentleman who is laid back and easy going.   Unfortunately his former mamma had to give him up due to her own health issues and now Max is looking for a loving home to spend his golden years.   He is very easy going, is great with other dogs, kids and adults.   He does not really play with toys but enjoys the backyard sun, walks and being next to you either on the couch or snuggled in bed.   He is so excited when you get home and he loves meal time and treats! He will sleep quietly in his own bed but he does love to be in the big bed with you if he is allowed.   He knows how to use a doggy door and has been doing well with that, even with going out in cold and wet weather.   He is currently on a kidney kibble diet but he is doing great and you would never know he is 15!   "Their affection is timeless, their devotion is ageless, their love is forever. Adopt a senior dog! "


Max is laid back sweet senior gentleman    who does not act or look his age. His owner had to give him up due to her own health issues and he is now looking for someone to love him through his golden years.   Max is super easy going, is friendly to adults, kids and other dogs.   He has not played with toys but he does bounce around happily especially when he knows it's time to eat. He walks easily on leash, loves to be near you and will let you know when he would like to be picked up so he can sit on the couch and watch Tv with you.   He sleeps quietly in his own bed at night and snuggles in his blanket.    After a week of learning our routine and the doggy door Max has not had anymore accidents in the house.   Max does have early stage kidney issues which can be common in older dogs and will benefit from staying on a kidney care wet food. Otherwise he is doing great and you would never know he is 15!

About Central Texas Dachshund Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Central Texas Dachshund Rescue is a volunteer organization whose main purpose is to rescue homeless Dachshunds and find them permanent, loving homes. We began rescuing Dachshunds in September of 2000 and our membership has grown yearly. In September of 2001 we incorporated and we received 501(c)3 status in February 2003. And, despite our name, we are no longer only in Central Texas, but have members and volunteers throughout the state of Texas and beyond.

All dogs that come through Central Texas Dachshund Rescue have been fully vetted before adoption. This includes a health exam by a veterinarian, the vaccinations appropriate for its age, and a heartworm test and preventative. All dogs are spayed or neutered before being adopted. Dogs too young to be spay or neutered are adopted under the agreement that they will be spayed or neutered at the appropriate time. We also provide dental treatment or other surgical treatments as necessary. The average cost of vetting our dogs is in the hundreds of dollars.

Our network of foster families provide safe and secure temporary homes, good nutrition, medical care, and socialization skills for our fosters. We always welcome new volunteers so if you would like to find out more about how you can help CTDR, please visit our website at:

Come Meet Our Pets...

Unlike a shelter or humane society, our dogs are not in one central location, but spread throughout many foster homes across the state. We realize that this makes it difficult to 'come meet our dogs,' but we believe the one-on-one care our dachshunds receive is well worth the inconvenience.

We will work with you to schedule a meet and greet with one or more of our dogs that are determined to be a good match for you and your family.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Fee:

On average, we spend $296 in vet expenses on each dog that we take in. To help us cover those expenses, on November 1, 2004 our adoption fee will increase to $250, and puppies under 1 year of age will be $300.

1.) Complete our online ADOPTION APPLICATION at ( and list the names of all the dogs you're interested in. If you don't currently see a dog that matches your family, please tell us more about what you're looking for. We have new dogs weekly and will contact you if a dog comes in that meets your requirements. Don't forget to list the name and number of your current veterinarian and landlord, if applicable! We will contact your current vet, landlord and personal references, if needed.

2.) After we receive your application, we'll contact you to discuss the specifics of what you're looking for. We will try to contact you within 3-7 days, but we are all volunteers and have full time jobs, so be patient with us!

3.) Once we have completed all reference checks, we will schedule a home visit where someone from our organization will come to your home and meet you and your family and any pets you currently have.

4.) Finally, we will schedule a time when your family and pet(s) can meet your desired rescue dachshund. If a long transport is involved, we ask the potential adopter to arrange the transportation of the dog.
