Edward came from a home in NY where the owner surrendered him because she got a large breed puppy.  Edward didn’t care for the puppy or the cats that she had, so she kept him in a muzzle 8-10 ours a day while at work.  Dogs should never have to live wearing a muzzle, it is not healthy for them.

With that being said, it has caused Edward to have some quirks.  When he arrived, we took him straight to our trainer to have him assessed due to his quirks. We quickly learned if given a strong “no” Edward will ignore the cats – no need for a muzzle! (we would still not recommend him in a home with cats). While in training Edward learned how to walk on a leash like a champion, sit, stay, place command, as well as daily walks on a treadmill (that’s right, he loves walking on the treadmill!!!) Edward needs a forever home that will commit to daily walks with him. He loves them & it releases any pent-up energy he has.

Edward is house broken to a doggie door and crate trained (however in his foster home he is fine with free roam of the house). He loves his doggie bed so if you have several throughout your house he would be in doggie heaven.

Sadly, Edward’s right eye had to be removed due to severe dry eye, but you would never know it.  Because the dry eye was so bad he never had good vision out of that eye. We decided it was best to remove it so he wasn’t always looking “through a dirty windshield”.

Because he ruled the roost for so long at his previous home we feel a Dachshund savvy home that will not let him become leader of the pack would be a best fit. If you “baby” Edward he may revert back to old habits, and you wouldn’t like that Edward very much.

Won’t you please give this boy the forever home he deserves? He is really a fantastic little man and oh so beautiful (his pictures do not do him justice).

=============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============

If you have questions about this dog please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above.  This foster home volunteer would be happy to answer and has the most up-to-date information about this dog.

We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo.  You will need to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $45 Fee added for the required Health Certificate. 

We will not adopt into the states of CT, RI, NH or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, please take this up with your legislatures.

To understand the adoption process through AADR, please visit the Adoption Information section.  Transportation options are outlined in Step 3.

If you are interested in adopting this Dachshund please Read Before You Adopt and then you can complete an Application.


Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers who will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast or up and down the West Coast.

We just can't get them from one Coast to the other, but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well.  For now, we encourage you to look for dogs on your coast.



About All American Dachshund Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a non-profit organization that rescues dachshunds from shelters, owner surrenders and fully vets them including dental and heartworm treated if needed and all health issues addressed before they are put on the website to be adopted. We do this due to the fact that there are so many Dachshunds out there that are bred and brought by people that don't know the breed and after they get the dog home and find out after a couple of months that they can't housebreak the dog and it's not good with their kids, they dump the dog in the shelters or if we are lucky they contacts us. Some Dachshund are not so lucky and get shifted to several homes or are sold to puppymills that bred them into the groud.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our dogs are in foster homes in TN, AL, LA, KY, AR, AZ, NY, CT, VA, MD, NC, FL, and GA. They can not be seen at any one place but all foster homes are happy to send you additional pictures or answer any questions you may have in regards to their fosters. We do not have any regular place that we go to to show off our dogs but if you are close to the foster home we will be glad to meet you somewhere to show you a or any dogs that you may be interested in.

You do have to fill out an online adoption application at and we will do a phone interview, check your references and vet and we WILL DO a homevisit no matter what state you are in. To adopt a dachshund you must either have a fenced in yard or ALWAYS keep them on leash. These are hunters and if you allow them to run free they will NOT come back or will be hit by a car or attacked by another dog. When you adopt the dog you are giving a two week trail period and if you feel you need more time we are happy to give that to you if you will notify us. We also make you sign a contract that is a legal and binding contract. Once you put in a application to adopt one of our fosters we will try to get back to you as soon as possible. If you have not heard from us in a week please e mail us as your app may have gotten lost. We also have the right to refuse to adopt to anyone that we feel would not make a good home for our Dachshunds. Please remember these dogs have been in at least 2-3 homes possible more and it could take the whole two weeks for them to adjust and possobly longer.
