Angela Mouse's Story...
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.
Angela, AKA Ruby, came from a hoarding situation so its not surprise that she is a little shy when she first meets you. She can be a little timid when your try to pick her up, but once she gets to know you she is very lovable. She loves to play with her two other foster dogs and bark when there are visitors at the door. When she is comfortable in the house, she is a bit shy with visitors at first but really opens up to them once shes sniffed them a bit.
She loves to be picked up and get petted by her owners from time to time. She even loves to sit and cuddle up with you when it's time for bed or just time to hang out! When we first started fostering Angela/Ruby we would keep her in her kennel over night since that was what she was used to. After a few days she fell asleep on the bed with us and since that night she stuck! She loves sleeping on the bed all night! She will jump down and cry if she has to use the restroom in the middle of the night.
Angela/Ruby will occasionally have accidents in the house if shes not being watched. She is still in her puppy stages and trying to learn whats its like to live outside of her kennel. During the day she will stay in her kennel, but when we get home we immediately take her outside to use the restroom. She understands the word "outside" and will go to the door once it has been said to use the restroom.
We have been taking her on daily walks around the neighborhood in the evening and she absolutely LOVES going for walks. She does however get a little scared so she will walk behind you. Most of the time you can tell she will forget about what happened to her and she will run and chase the other dogs that are ahead of her on our walks.
Angela/Ruby is a very sweet dog and would love the chance to meet you and give you lots of cuddles and kisses very soon!
We have one sole purpose and that is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home Dachshunds in need of a second chance at life and love. We rescue purebred (and a few mixed) dachshunds from pounds and shelters. Some have had a wonderful life but were dumped by their only family at a shelter for no reason at all, while others have been abused, abandoned, neglected and starved of food and human affection their entire life. We believe there is a home somewhere for every dog rescued; some just take a little longer to find.
