This cutie pie guy is Oscar Oratek. Recently DREAM was contacted by a shelter in South Texas. They had taken in a family of six... yes, six precious red Dachshunds (four females and two males) that had been surrendered to the shelter by their owner! Oscar was one of the two males. Since he is new to DREAM, he's just now getting settled into his foster home, so we'll have more information on him available soon. We do know that Oscar is sweet but a little shy. He's ok when being handled and has even given out a kiss or two. He still flinches a bit when a stranger tries to pet him, but doesn't get snappy at all. During his transition into the shelter, there were lots of people around, so he was a little nervous. Sometimes he'll enjoy showing off and will sit up and beg for attention. And look at those cute Dachsie ears!

Our Adoption Process...

Our Adoption Criteria

~ You must be at least 21 years old.
~ We prefer that you live in the greater Houston area, but we will consider your application under certain circumstances. If you live more than 2 hours from Houston, you will need to provide photos of your home and yard (or be able to Skype with us), and you must be willing to travel to Houston to meet the dogs.
~ If you live in a house, you must have a fenced yard.
~ All companion animals must be spayed/neutered, and current on vaccinations and heartworm preventative.
~ You must have the time and money necessary to provide medical treatment, training and proper care.
~ With few exceptions, you must not have children younger than three (3) years old living in your home.

Our Adoption Process

1. You submit an Adoption Application.
2. Our Application Committee will review your Application, and call your vet and your landlord (if applicable).
3. A volunteer will interview you on the phone.
4. A Home Visit will be scheduled to see where your new Dachshund will sleep, eat and play.
5. We all work together to find the right Dachshund for your family. Usually, the dog's Foster Person will bring the dog you're interested to your home for a "Meet and Greet".
6. When you're ready to adopt, you will sign an Adoption Contract and pay the Adoption Fee.

Please Note

~ If your Application is not approved, you will not be able to adopt from us.
~ A submitted application does not guarantee adoption of a Dachshund, nor does it guarantee that the dog you want is available.
~ Adoptive families must agree to periodic follow-up phone calls and visits from us during the first year following the adoption.
~ We are committed to our dogs and REQUIRE that they be returned to us if they cannot remain in your home.
~ Our Adoption Fees are $350 for Puppies, $250 for Young/Adults, and $150 for Seniors.
~ Submission of your application confirms that you have read and understand our Adoption Criteria and Adoption Process.
