My story

No shared walls 

No small children

Reactive to dogs when leash walking and when strange dogs enter her environment 

Chacha is a sweet energetic 10-month-old chocolate wirehair dachshund who is looking for her own person to love. She weighs about 18 pounds. When we asked her foster mom to tell us about Chacha’s special qualities, she said that Chacha is a young, healthy, happy-go-lucky dog. She is loving and playful, has lots of energy, and is ready for a lifetime of love and adventures. She loves to play in the yard, go for walks, and play with her people and sister. She has the best smile and most loving eyes.

Chacha is working on her house training. She tends to urinate when she gets upset or excited. This is known as submissive urination and is common in young dogs. She likes her crate and has not had any accidents in it at home. She would love a home with at least one family member around most of the time to play with her and work on her training. However, she is fine being left alone in her crate so long as she can get a break every 4 to 5 hours. Chacha loves to sing the song of her people and because of this she needs a home without shared walls.

Chacha tolerates car rides ok, but it's not her favorite activity. She loves to explore her backyard. Digging holes, running after the chickens on the other side of the fence, and chasing squirrels are her favorite activities. Chacha would love to have a backyard in her new home, but it isn’t a requirement so long as she gets all the exercise she needs.

Chacha gets along with small dogs when introduced carefully. She does not prefer larger dogs or dogs smaller than she. Chacha does not like meeting any dogs out in public. She is working to improve her leash walking manners. She needs to learn not to pull and not to bark at people and other dogs while on leash. Chacha tends to be protective of her food and if there are other dogs in the house, she needs to eat in a separate space. We don’t know what she thinks of cats.

Chacha loves meeting new people, but she does not tolerate strange dogs coming into her environment. She has met elementary school aged children and liked them. However, she is rambunctious and loves to jump on everyone. She would do best in a home without small children.

Like most puppies, Chacha needs plenty of exercise and to be kept busy with interesting activities and toys. She is looking for a family willing to work with her to become a good canine citizen and most importantly, to share a fun filled life together. 

 

Chacha is being fostered in Moncks Corner with her foster mom Jan. For additional information, please contact her at jchicka@gmail.com . If you would like to adopt Chacha, please complete an adoption application form by clicking on 

https://www.littlepawsdr.org/adoption/adoption-applications/ .

 

The adoption fee for Chacha is $400. If she is adopted over a state  line,  there will be an additional charge for a health certificate (required by law) of anywhere between $45.00 and $100.00. The amount depends upon what the veterinarian charges LPDR.  

 

Transportation Help: If you see a furbaby that is a match for your family, don't let distance stand in your way of adoption. LPDR can work with you to have a volunteer transport or refer you to a paid transport.

 

Dogs adopted in New England are subject to additional rules and regulations by state departments of agriculture that may include a short stay in quarantine. Complying with these regulations is expensive for our rescue and some dogs going to New England states may be charged an additional $175.00 to cover costs of compliance.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

6 Step Adoption Process 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.

Go meet their pets

Are you looking for an opportunity to foster a dachshund? Fostering is our transitional step from a shelter/surrender to a forever home. During this time it’s important that we give each dachshund a safe environment where it can learn to trust again, to heal and to learn how to become a loving family member. Many of the dachshunds that we pull from shelters or receive from an owner surrender just need a temporary home until their new forever home can be found. Please go to our website (www.LittlePawsDR.org) to learn more.
