Princess is a darling 12 year old senior black and tan dapple longhaired Dachshund. Princess seems to be house trained, but she has a very short time span from waking to getting fully outside the front door. She spends much of her day in her bed so she is encouraged to go outside and take small walks with her foster mom. She is friendly to the other dogs in her foster home. Princess enjoys very casual leashed walks and doesn't seem to mind car rides. She's not much of a barker.

We are fairly certain that this 13 pound little lady did not live in the most ideal home and did not receive the best care over the years. Princess was found wandering along a road and taken to an animal shelter. Her owner was contacted, but must have had a change of mind and decided to leave Princess in the shelter. Three long months later Princess hit the "lottery" when Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue stepped in getting her out of the shelter and placed her in a loving foster home. This brave dachshund's problems were not over. She had a mammary mass the size of a baseball. Mass removed, pathology showed it was benign. Princess is close to completely deaf. We took her to a vet opthalmologist for what seemed to be low to no vision in one eye and a cataract in the other eye. The diagnosis was she has glaucoma in one eye and she is blind in that eye. The good news is that she had such an amazing response to the medication that removing the eye is off the table.

Princess's ideal home will have no young children, no aggressive pets, and an adopter that is retired. The adopter will have patience and an understanding of the safety concerns for a dog with very low hearing as well as having low vision. Princess is available for adoption in Colorado only. Applicants must reside within 3 driving hours of Boulder, CO. To meet this very pretty little dachshund we require that an adoption application be filled out. This can be done online at www.c2cdr.org. For questions please email boulderdachshunds@comcast.net.

The adoption fee for Princess is $150.00 the warm feeling in your heart for helping her is immeasurable.

About Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue is an all volunteer organization dedicated to rescuing and re-homing dachshunds and dachshund mixes. We rely completely on donations, fundraisers and adoption fees to cover all of the vetting expenses for each animal brought into rescue. Much of the time the vetting expense far out weighs the adoption fee of the dogs. Members in each state do fundraising activities in an individual and team effort to help raise funds for the organization. We are always looking for good foster homes and for volunteers to help in our mission.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our available dogs can be found on the www.c2cdr.org website as well as the www.adoptapet.com website.

Our Adoption Process...

All adoptions require an application which can be found at our website www.c2cdr.org. The adoption fee structure can also be found on the website. If a dog that is being adopted requires out of state transport it is the financial responsibility of the adopter to to cover the costs and make the transportation arrangements. Every dog brought into rescue is placed in a loving foster home and is completely vetted prior to adoption. It is our goal to have any adoption be the forever home for each dog.
