Odie is an adorably sweet butterscotch colored 1.5 year old Chiweenie weighing about 15 lbs.  Odie came from a highkill shelter in W Va after being surrendered by his owner. 

Odie says he is looking for a family that loves a young dog who can be an active pup to chase balls and run “zoomies” in the yard, and can also relax and chill with you on your lap or a dog bed while you are sitting at the computer, on the couch or taking a nap.  When I nap with you, I love to curl up right next to your side, where I stay very, very, very still, and I don’t snore!

I love the comfort of a soft dog bed.  Now that is it cold outside, I have found a love for flannel sheets.  I may be a bit slow waking on winter mornings and emerging from my flannel dog cave because it is so warm and cozy in there after 8 hours of sleeping.  I get very excited for my meals, and eat very quickly. When it is meal time, I jump up and down on my back legs like a Pogo Stick.  I take treats very gently.     

I love to be cuddled and have belly rubs. I am a very gentle dog, who is good at learning commands, and responds very well to your tone of voice.

I am learning how to walk on the leash. This is a new experience for me.

I am crate trained, but I prefer to be out of my crate and following you around.

I enjoy playing with my sister Mimi. We are not a “bonded” pair, but we really do enjoy playing with each other, and sharing the same dog bed…to stay warm, of course!

If you are looking for a loving, low maintenance young dog, who can play in the yard or relax with you on the couch or in the house, then I am your pup.

Adoption Fee:  $275.00 + $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.
