My story

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Rescue Dachshunds.  Look around and read their bios.  Find a few whose personality seems to fit well.  Consider one of our Well Seasoned Seniors who are truly wonderful and have so much to offer.  Need help finding the best fit?  We'll help with that too.  Please fill out an application and let’s get you all matched up with a loving new “furever’ companion and friend. You’ll find the application on the “Available Dogs” page.  NOTE:   Adoptions to Central/South Texas residents only   

Please see FAQs for current adoption fees.  DDRTX only adopts in Central/South Texas.

Hi my name is Henry and I am an 8 year old sweet, older gentleman that loves to go on walks.  I get so excited when I see the harness, I run around and jump around. I love food, including anything left unattended on the coffee table. I weigh around 26 pounds.

I have some aches and pains and they cause me to not like to be picked up very much or rubbed too hard. I do like laying next to my foster brother and sisters. I like to be on the big bed, but will get down and go sleep on a dog bed.  My foster Mom was surprised to see that I like baths.  She is very gentle when picking me up and putting me in the tub and I love her rubbing shampoo into my fur.  I come out smelling good and looking more handsome than normal.

I have discovered tennis balls and love playing with them.  I am learning to share them with other dogs and people.  I like to play with my foster brother even though I can't play very long as my joints start to ache.

Younger children make me nervous but would do well with teens and adults who are careful with my sore joints.  If you are looking for a sweet-natured mature chap to give you his undivided attention, I am your man!

More about this rescue

Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas is an all volunteer group in the heart of Texas that is dedicated to the health, welfare and happiness of our dachshund friends. We are based in San Antonio, Texas but we have fosters/volunteers in Austin, San Angelo and DFW areas. We are a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. As such, we must rely heavily on donations and contributions to be able to pay the costs of health care, administrative needs, and other necessary expenses for each of our dachshunds. Diamond Dachshund has rescued, rehabilitated and placed approximately one hundred dachshunds each year since our incorporation in 1998. That's a lot of happy, healthy dogs and equally happy families! We strive to find the right home for each dog's individual personality and needs, so that the placement is permanent and both the dogs and the humans who adopt them, are equally happy.
