Doc is one of those dogs that has maintained a sweet personality throughout a lot of hardship. Doc was surrendered to a shelter and tested heart worm positive. He’s through all of that now, but in addition to that condition he must have had a hard hand as a young pup because he has some submissive pee issues that he is working to overcome. Much of the time his pee issues are from pure excitement. We don’t think that he was given very much attention at his previous house and when you give him attention, he can get really excited. Despite all of these obstacles, he is a curious, lively lad who has made friends with all of the other dogs in his foster household. He is a bit reserved at first, but when he gets used to his surroundings he loves to play, investigate, and be everything that we love about Dachshunds!! He LOVES to curl up in your lap and take nice long naps.
Doc has not been around children, so we don’t know how he is with little ones but, given his pee issues, he might do best in a house with no kids. He has gotten along with all dogs but cats are a question mark. He is a little on the thin side but his appetite is great and he should be at his ideal weight of around 15 pounds very soon.
Doc is a great little guy. He needs an understanding home with veteran Dachshund owners who can nurture him and get him the rest of the way to becoming a well-adjusted dog. If you are that person, you will be rewarded with a loving, wonderful Doxie! Please give Doc a chance!!
If you want more information about Doc, contact his foster dad, Erich, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
=============== 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.
