Merle is a great big teddy bear in more than one sense. He's a huge cuddle bug, but youngsters beware, he does not like to be startled, he does not like his ears touched, and he prefers a very gentle touch. Merle will take some patience in the beginning because he was not very well socialized. However, once he warms up to you, he is your new best friend. He is crate trained, loves rawhides, toys, and basking in the sun. He would prefer to sleep in the big bed, but he is a pillow hog, so he does much better in his crate at night. He needs to lose a few pounds, but so far he is doing great on his new diet. He would be best suited in a home with older dogs or no other pets, no cats, and no children. He loves adults, and sofa time is his favorite time!

About Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas

About Our Rescue Group...

Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas is an all volunteer group in the heart of Texas that is dedicated to the health, welfare and happiness of our dachshund friends. We are based in San Antonio, Texas but we have fosters/volunteers in Austin, San Angelo and DFW areas. We are a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. As such, we must rely heavily on donations and contributions to be able to pay the costs of health care, administrative needs, and other necessary expenses for each of our dachshunds. Diamond Dachshund has rescued, rehabilitated and placed approximately one hundred dachshunds each year since our incorporation in 1998. That's a lot of happy, healthy dogs and equally happy families! We strive to find the right home for each dog's individual personality and needs, so that the placement is permanent and both the dogs and the humans who adopt them, are equally happy.

Our Adoption Process...

Current Adoption Fee $ 225.00 per dog, discounts for bonded pairs or senior/special needs dogs or previous adopters from DDRTX.

Adoption application, reference checks and home visit required for adoption approval. Previous pets must have been kept up to date on vaccinations, be spayed or neutered, AND kept on heartworm prevention. Application can be found on our primary website www.ddrtx.org on the "Available Dogs" page.
