Facts about Maple

  • Breed: Dachshund/Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
My name is Maple the Chi-Weenie. That means that I am a special blend of Dachshund and Chihuahua. I must be a sapling because I only weigh 8 pounds. I love to be with humans and being carried or sitting in your lap is preferred.

I have a few super powers to tell you about. I can stand on my hind legs and twirl like a ballerina; especially if you have treats in your hand. It’s too bad there isn’t a doggie NBA because I can jump so high! There is no doubt that I would be an all star point guard.

I live in a foster home with other nice dogs, and we get along great. There are no cats in my foster home, but my foster mom believes that I would do just fine. I am housetrained and crate trained. I would be fine as an only dog or in a multiple-dog family provided if the other dog(s) is large, it would respect that I am a little girl that can’t be played with too rough.

I would love to twirl my way into your heart and home. Let’s be best friends!

Maple is a female, spayed Dachshund/Chihuahua mix with an estimated DOB of 11/14/12

For more information on our adoption process, please visit our website at and read our Adoption FAQ's and Before You Adopt documents. In addition you can complete an online adoption application from our website. You can also email for additional details.

Our adoption fee is $300 and includes all age appropriate vaccines, spay or neuter and microchipping. The breed and age included in this listing is based upon the opinion of a vet that has examined the dog. We cannot confirm the age of the dog unless the dog was born in the care of the rescue. We are located in the metro Atlanta area. We currently do not allow out of state adoptions as a home check is required as part of the adoption process.

About You Lucky Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

You lucky dog rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue of homeless and abandoned dogs from the high-kill shelters of North Georgia.

We believe it is our moral responsibility to save, protect, and improve the lives of these dogs through the help of committed volunteers, foster homes, donors, local veterinarians, and trainers. We strive to re-introduce these dogs to society, assess their individual needs, and provide them with a loving temporary home while matching them with only the best, carefully screened forever homes

Our Adoption Process...

Our Mission is to ensure the best fit for each individual dog and applicant. We will not make arrangements for you to meet any dogs outside of an adoption event until you have completed the adoption application. In addition, a dog will not be placed in your home before You Lucky Dog has conducted a thorough reference check and completed a home visit. Please understand that the adoption and home visit process is not designed to be frustrating and drawn out, but rather to guarantee the safety and happiness of the dogs. During the home check, we will make sure that each pet in that home has been neutered/spayed and is up to date on all of their shots. The home check will be completed by the foster for the dog that you are considering adopting when feasible. Our foster parents dedicate their time and money to loving and training these dogs, and we rely on their input when meeting with a potential adopter. If your application is approved and your home visit meets the requirements that we have established, you will be required to sign a contract in order to complete the adoption process. The adoption fee is $300. All dogs will be spayed or neutered, micro-chipped and up to date on all shots prior to adoptions.
