Hi. My name is Oscar Mayer.  I am a 4-year-old chiweenie.  I weigh about 11 pounds. My previous owner had to surrender me when she became too ill to care for me.  Fortunately, I have found a wonderful foster family who is taking good care of me until I find my furever home.  As you can see from my pictures, I am very cute.  I am also a very happy dog.  My nickname is “snuggles” because that is my favorite thing to do. I love to snuggle with my foster mom when she is sitting on the couch. Once I am attached to my human, I follow them everywhere.  Because I am a chiweenie, I am very can jump very high.  This means that I can jump on furniture and chairs.  However, I don’t chew on furniture or rugs. I LOVE to go outside.  Because I am a jumper I probably could jump over a 3' fence and so my foster mom says my forever home should have a 6' fence.  I also love to sleep in the big bed at night, under the covers.  I am housetrained although I have had a few accidents.  I am not crazy about being crated.  But I will patiently wait for my human to return home and let me out.  I currently live with a foster fur brother.  It took me a little while to warm up to him.  But now, he and I play together and I will sometimes sleep with him in his doggie bed. I also was a little jealous when he would try and get on my foster mom’s lap while I was there.  But, now I have learned to share. My foster mom thinks that I would do well with a family that has a young dog like me so that I can have someone to play and hang out with.  My foster family has a bird that I have shown a great deal of interest in.  For this reason, they think it would be best if I were in a home without cats and/or small critters. Just like any other chiweenie, I can be vocal.  I will immediately let you know if someone comes to the door or if I hear a suspicious noise outside. I am learning to walk on a leash.  My foster mom says I am doing well with that.  But I could benefit from some additional training to learn things like sit, stay, come.  But will a little patience and lots of love, I can be the perfect dog for the right family.

Adoption Fee:  $275.00 + $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 $135 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...

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.
