Hi, my name is Trouper. My Foster Mom named me that because I'm reliable and uncomplaining, a real trouper.
Are you looking for me? I'm looking for my very own forever family. I'm ready to be yours. I've been to the vet, I'm healthy and have had all my shots. My Foster Mom says I'm doing really well with potty training. 
So,  let's be a family and play ball together, go for walks or just snuggle on the couch. I really enjoy going for walks and do great on a leash. I'm a little shy around new people but come out of my shell quickly if you give me treats. I like treats. 
I love to go for walks, play with other dogs, and chewing on hooves. I sleep in a kennel next to the bed so I'm safe at night and don't wander around.  In the morning, I love to give wake-up kisses. I don't chew on things other than my own toys, so my Foster Mom says I can be trusted in the house. 

I 'm almost housebroken, and I haven't had any accidents in my foster home, but I need reminders and go out often. 
I have a foster brother and sister and we get along great. The only issue is they are old and don't want to play with me. I'm very respectful of that. My Foster Mom does not have cats so I don't know how I would react to them.

Adoption Fee:  $350.00 + $45.00 for a health certificate if going over state lines (required by law).  Dogs adopted in New England are subject to additional rules and regulations by the state departments of agriculture. Complying with these regulations is expensive for our rescue, and all dogs adopted in New England states are subject to an additional $145 non refundable fee to help cover a portion of these expenses. 

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.
