These 2 little rays of sunshine came into rescue because the gentleman who had them became ill and was no longer able to properly care for them. You can tell they were loved. Both have been vetted and brought up to date on all their shots along with a dental. Unfortunately, both also lost teeth due to poor dental maintenance. Do not let that worry you, they still eat as if they had all their teeth and are very food motivated. Maggie has lost some weight, but still needs to lose just a bit more, so she is eating Prescription Metabolic food (she will come with some food but any refills would need to be purchased at the adopter’s vet).
Missy and Maggie truly do love each other and will snuggle together to nap. Missy loves to give tongue slap kisses and play with toys while Maggie loves the outdoors and to snuggle with her sister. They both love a good chest rub and kisses! We are not yet sure of their potty habits as accidents are expected when going to a new home. They are however, using the doggy door. The pair is very interested in the cats and need to be reminded to leave them alone. This is why we say Dog Savvy Cats only and it will probably pass as they settle into their new foster home. They also get along fine with the other dogs in the house, one male and one female.
As for being crate trained, they did great on their trip to their foster home crated together, but they should never be crated together and left alone. Separate crates side by side would be best. We are not yet sure how they react to being crated while they are left alone for the work day, but we will update you on all of their progress as they become acclimated to their new foster home. They will walk on a leash and of course like to sniff all the new territory along the way.
If you are looking for a truly bonded pair to add to your family or pack, please go to the www.allamericandachshundrescue.org/ and apply and/or contact the foster home at email@example.com.
=============== Information for all dogs/adopters ==============
If you have questions about this dog please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above. They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.
We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $45 Fee added for the required Health Certificate.
We will not adopt into the state of CT, RI or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you need to take this up with your legislatures.
We are now approved to adopt/foster in the state of NH but adopters will have to pay health certificate fee of $45.00 once to get the dog to our quarantine facility and another $50.00 fee to get the dog out of quarantine after two days.
To understand the adoption process through AADR, please visit the Adoption Information. Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN A RESCUE.
Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers that will help your 'new friend' get up and down the East Coast or up and down the West Coast. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well. For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
