Traylor is a well behaved, gentle, and happy dog who likes to be petted and talked to and he LOVES to go on walks. He likes attention but he is not pushy or insistent on attention--he does not jump on you. The minute Traylor sees his harness and leash, he starts dancing around and comes over to get into his walking gear.  Other than pausing to anoint a number of trees and bushes, he does well on the walks and is comfortable with walking for 1-2 miles in the evening.  Traylor is comfortable walking alone with his person or with another dog.  Traylor is not completely housebroken but he is much better about letting us know when he needs to go outside.  When it is cold or rainy, he needs a little bit of persuasion to go outside. He will bark when let outside but is not an incessant barker.    He is a very loyal companion, liking to sit at your feet when you are reading or watching television.  Traylor is on a  low-fat dry food diet and he likes yogurt,  cottage cheese, rice, and shredded chicken breast /rice on his dry food.  Traylor dances in circles when he sees his food bowl.  He eats well and quickly. Other than at walk times, Traylor is not a high energy dog--he will run, for short distances in the back yard to chase a squirrel or take part in a barking contest.  Because of his long coat, Traylor requires brushing of his chest, ears, hindquarters, and tail.  He does better with being groomed to have the long heavy coat removed for the summer otherwise he gets very warm in the summer. Traylor is very friendly with people who come to our home and on our walks.  We are not sure how Traylor would respond to cats in a home--he does want to chase cats on our walks.  Traylor is crate trained and voluntarily goes to his crate during the day. Riding in a car, Traylor prefers to lie on the floorboards in the back.  He does fine riding in the car but he is prefers walks to riding in the car.

About Central Texas Dachshund Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Central Texas Dachshund Rescue is a volunteer organization whose main purpose is to rescue homeless Dachshunds and find them permanent, loving homes. We began rescuing Dachshunds in September of 2000 and our membership has grown yearly. In September of 2001 we incorporated and we received 501(c)3 status in February 2003. And, despite our name, we are no longer only in Central Texas, but have members and volunteers throughout the state of Texas and beyond.

All dogs that come through Central Texas Dachshund Rescue have been fully vetted before adoption. This includes a health exam by a veterinarian, the vaccinations appropriate for its age, and a heartworm test and preventative. All dogs are spayed or neutered before being adopted. Dogs too young to be spay or neutered are adopted under the agreement that they will be spayed or neutered at the appropriate time. We also provide dental treatment or other surgical treatments as necessary. The average cost of vetting our dogs is in the hundreds of dollars.



Our network of foster families provide safe and secure temporary homes, good nutrition, medical care, and socialization skills for our fosters. We always welcome new volunteers so if you would like to find out more about how you can help CTDR, please visit our website at: www.ctdr.org

Come Meet Our Pets...

Unlike a shelter or humane society, our dogs are not in one central location, but spread throughout many foster homes across the state. We realize that this makes it difficult to 'come meet our dogs,' but we believe the one-on-one care our dachshunds receive is well worth the inconvenience.

We will work with you to schedule a meet and greet with one or more of our dogs that are determined to be a good match for you and your family.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Fee:

On average, we spend $296 in vet expenses on each dog that we take in. To help us cover those expenses, on November 1, 2004 our adoption fee will increase to $250, and puppies under 1 year of age will be $300.



1.) Complete our online ADOPTION APPLICATION at (www.ctdr.org/phpform/forms/application.html) and list the names of all the dogs you're interested in. If you don't currently see a dog that matches your family, please tell us more about what you're looking for. We have new dogs weekly and will contact you if a dog comes in that meets your requirements. Don't forget to list the name and number of your current veterinarian and landlord, if applicable! We will contact your current vet, landlord and personal references, if needed.

2.) After we receive your application, we'll contact you to discuss the specifics of what you're looking for. We will try to contact you within 3-7 days, but we are all volunteers and have full time jobs, so be patient with us!

3.) Once we have completed all reference checks, we will schedule a home visit where someone from our organization will come to your home and meet you and your family and any pets you currently have.

4.) Finally, we will schedule a time when your family and pet(s) can meet your desired rescue dachshund. If a long transport is involved, we ask the potential adopter to arrange the transportation of the dog.
