Meet one of the most handsome smooth-coat back and tan doxies – me, Tally. I love to run and play in the yard (in the kitchen, down the hallway, in the bedroom, etc.). While I’m currently walked on a leash, I would love to have a fenced yard of my own where I can run free, sniffing every square inch. I’m very agreeable and respectful of other small dogs but not always agreeable around larger dogs. I’m good with adults, warming up quickly to new people – but only after giving them a few barks, a good sniffing and a slow introduction.

My foster mom says I’m affectionate and love to be held.  If you massage my ears, I’ll close my eyes, lean into your hand and simply enjoy the moment. Life just doesn’t get any better.

I’m proud to say that I’m house trained and crate trained. At night, I sleep in my cozy crate in my foster mom’s bedroom. I patiently wait for her to get up each morning to walk and feed me (emphasis on feeding). I’m gentle when taking treats and wait my turn (did I mention that I’m living with four other dachshunds.) I just love to eat. As a result, I’m just a little plump for my size so, to keep me spine-healthy, I’m working on losing a few pound. I have a long doxie body with very short legs so no steps or stairs for me. My foster mom thinks I would do best with someone who is at home most of the day, where there are no children and with someone is dachshund-savvy.

Are you longing for a sweet little doxie companion like me? Talk to my foster mom, Sabine, ( and she can tell you more about me.  

Note:  Tally must be adopted within 100 miles of Chester, MD so folks interested in opening their home to Tally can come and meet him.

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.
