Helloooooo nice person! We’re Fred and Ethel; who are you? You say you're looking for a pair of seniors??? That's amazing! Because we are a bonded pair AND we are seniors. Please read on to learn more about our personalities.

Fred:  I’m a pint-sized dynamo who has swagger in his walk.  I enjoy exploring the yard and prefer snoozing under blankets in my kennel or on the couch. I’m all about love and cuddling. I am a little cautious around people and kids. But don’t be alarmed….I’m quick to warm-up to strangers and kids.  I also get along with big and small dogs. 

Ethel: I’m the granddame. I need a house full of soft beds, people who like snuggles and of course the ever crucial yummy treats (I’m working very hard to get my girlish figure back, so the treats are at a minimum). I get along with dogs and people I have met here, including respectful children of all ages. I am a mellow gal who enjoys a snooze in the sun. I also enjoy my nightly stroll in the yard with Fred.    

Note:  Ethel went to the vet for a routine dental and during her pre-op exam the vet palpated an abdominal mass.  An x-ray revealed a mass on her spleen so she underwent a spleenectomy. Ethel's splenic tumor was made up of mixed cells.  Because the tumor is metastatic and her life expectancy is unknown Little Paws will waive her adoption fee as well as Fred’s so they can be adopted together.

For additional information please contact my foster mom Kelly ( 

 The Adoption fee for Fred & Ethel will be waived to an approved adopter. If they are adopted over the Maryland state line there will be a $45.00 charge (for each dog) for a health certificate (required by law).  If they are adopted in New England there is an additional $135 fee (for each dog) to help cover the transport of each dog to New England.

Transportation Help

If you see a furbaby that is a match for your family, don’t let distance stand in the way of your adoption. LPDR can work with you to have a volunteer transport to assist with transportation or refer you to a paid transport.

About Little Paws Dachshund Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Little Paws Dachshund Rescue is a non-profit animal rescue that specializes in finding permanent homes for dachshunds. It is LPDR’s goal to identify abandoned, mistreated, or homeless dogs and oversee their treatment and wellbeing while working to find loving owners for those in our care. We strive to make the lives of all dogs better through action, advocacy, awareness and education.

Our Adoption Process...

6 Step Adoption Process

We require:

1) Application - (While we encourage you to let us know on your application if one of our dogs has captured your interest, we use this simply as a guide for matching and your listing of specific dog in no way implies claim to this particular dog)

NOTE: Adoption Applications expire 6 months from the date of receipt. If you have already submitted an Adoption Application and it has been longer than 6 months, you will need to fill out a new Adoption Application.

2) Reference Checks - All references will be checked prior to home visit. We will contact your current vet, if you have one, for a reference.

3) Application Review - Processor reviews the application, calls the vet if you have one, verifies vaccinations and spay/neuter. We email personal references (if email is provided) or call them if necessary. Email is best since as references can respond when they are available.

4) Home Visit - A volunteer will come to your home to visit with you and discuss care of dachshunds. Also, the volunteer will look for any potential problems and check to be sure that your fencing is secure. Your home visit does not mean you have been approved.

5) Approval - After the above steps have been completed all your information will be reviewed and a decision will be made about adoption. If at this point you are approved to adopt, LPDR will help guide you to the appropriate dog for your family.

6) Contract - For the protection of the dogs we place, everyone that adopts a dachshund from LPDR will be required to sign an adoption contract. If you would like additional information on our adoption contract you can email and a copy of our contract will be sent to you electronically.
