This little man was right at home day one. I am told he is an elderly guy but he is up for anything you want to do. He loves walks, loves running through the leaves and is also a serious lap dog. He needs a soft diet as most of his teeth were removed shortly after arriving here. He sleeps in his bed near us and is quiet all night. He would be fine for an apartment as he is a homebody and we have never been concerned about him running away. We have a huge yard that he could explore but he prefers to be with people. He has gotten along with the other dogs we meet on our walks. Don't know about cats!! He was fine with my 10 year old grandson but we have not had him around younger children.
Update: Ajax has been staying at another foster home for the holidays and has found out that he gets along well with other dachshunds, a few chihuahua mixes and two bigger dogs. He recently noticed there is a cat in the house but doesn't seem too interested in him. He has also been GREAT with a very curious and hands on one year old boy. He has been eating, sleeping and going potty outside well since the moment he got here. He has enjoyed being on our laps, lying in his bed or on the big bed, and playing with the younger pups.
Adoption Fee:  $150.00 + $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.

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.
