Hi! My name is Lilly and this is my story. A couple years ago, my brother Marshall and I were found as puppies in a box next to a dumpster. We were adopted out from a rescue and had a home and family. Our families’ home burned down and we had to be relinquished to a rescue. My brother is already adopted out and LPDR stepped up and brought me into foster care. I am a Dachshund mix with a short coat. I just love to sit with my humans in the recliner or couch; a regular love-bug!  I am not big on licking my human’s face but I do like to lay my head on your shoulder. I love to sleep in the big bed with my humans all throughout the night without any problems. My foster mom and dad say that I am such a good and well-behaved girl! My foster mom says that I am housebroken and is very happy when I go outside and potty when it rains. I do best if I am taken outside as soon as I wake up in the morning, after eating and occasionally throughout the day as I do not go to the door when I want out. Mom doesn’t feed me after the dinner hour so I do not have any accidents during the night. I love to go for walks but will need a bit of leash training. My foster mom says I am all over the place as I like to explore! I do well being around other dogs, wanting to make friends and considerate kids. I love treats and I am not food aggressive. I do get a bit jealous and I do not always like another dog in my human’s lap but I am not otherwise bossy and just want to be by your side. My foster mom is happy that I am finally playing with toys and bones, and I enjoy playing with the other dogs. I do not bark much except when my foster mom returns home from work. For the most part I am very quiet and reserved. My foster mom says that I sometimes “talk” instead of bark, when I am happy. I would be great being in an apartment or with a senior citizen and I am so easy to fall in love with that I would definitely make someone a great companion! I am a 2 year old female, 15 pounds of love, spayed and microchipped. I am healthy, heartworm negative, UTD on all of my shots. I did have ACL surgery as a pup but am fine now!

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. This fee is non refundable if dog is returned. Fill out an adoption application TRANSPORTATION HELP! If you see a furbaby that would be a match for your family, please 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

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.
