Hi.  I’m Rusty.  If you are looking for a young, fun-loving fur-baby, then I’m your boy. 

I enjoy running in the yard with my foster brother who is teaching me how to be a dog.  Let’s see…he’s taught me to chase squirrels and groundhogs, to pee and poo outside and to enjoy lying in the sun.  I have other foster brothers that are teaching me to respect their space.  So far, I’ve earned an A+.  I’ve discovered the “girl next door” who is another rescue….we enjoy running along the fence line and sniffing each other thru the fence slats. 

As you can tell, I enjoy a fenced –in yard where I can play and enjoy the company of my own kind.  In other words, I need dog-pals.  

I also enjoy my humans….lying in a willing lap and I’ve earned the privilege to sleep in the big bed where I love to cuddle and dream of treats, catching that elusive groundhog and of finally meeting the “girl next door.”  I’m mildly cautious of strangers, but I warm-up quickly.  I’m ok with children, but they are very active, so I tend to shy away.  I think if they were a permanent fixture in the “pack”, I’d be okay.

When my foster mom is at work, I’m in my special place….the kennel ….and I am very well behaved and enjoy my special place. My “mom” makes sure I have a couple of bones to keep me busy until she returns.  

Today, my mom took me for a walk on what she calls a leash.  Hmmmm, I’m not too sure about this contraption….I’ve never seen one.  However, I went along with the game and will need some work with my leash manners.  The way I figure it, as long as my human is at the other end, I think I’ll catch on quickly.  After all, it will lead to fun, lots of interesting smells, and new friends and adventure.  

I am looking forward to my forever home, where I will love and be loved.

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...

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.
