  • Age: Adult

Rex is a beautiful, shy 7 yrs dachshund and about 10 lbs. He is a total love bug once he knows you, but is very anxious and afraid of people he doesn’t know, loud noises, other unfamiliar animals, etc. He needs a quiet home without a lot of distractions. When calm, he is sweet, affectionate dog, aching for attention. He loves to go for rides, He plays some ball. He gets along with other animals that he’s been introduced to. He will bark at strangers passing by. He will make a wonderful pet for someone that has time to bond with him and give him the attention he craves. Uses doggy door for outdoor needs. Eats calmly but will shy away from food if another animal approaches or any loud noises. He knows his name and responds if not intent on something more interesting.

He would do very well with a similar size alpha dog that likes to play.

Our Adoption Process...

Interested parties are asked to email to request an application. The request will be handled by our Adoption Coordinator who will email an Adoption Application to the contact. When the application has been returned it will be reviewed and the applicant will be contacted. An inhome visit is arranged whereby the dog will be taken to the applicants home to stay for a two week visit. At this time an Adoption Contract will be filled out and signed by both parties and the adoption fee paid, all of which is held by the Treasurer until either the adoption becomes final and the fee is deposited or, in the event things do not work out, the dog is returned to the rescue and the adoption fee is given back to the applicant. Florida adoptions only please.
