Story
My name is Holden, but most often my foster family calls me "Mr. Handsome" or "Sweet Boy." I am both of those things, if I do say so myself. One thing you need to know about me is that I had a back problem so now I cannot use my rear legs. This is VERY common in dachshunds. However, it doesn't slow me down one bit. This gorgeous lover boy is a gentle soul with a bark that sounds like bubbles and he’s also a very talented squeaky toy musician. Sometimes foster ma has to confiscate it so she can work! Other than that he’s a quiet guy who loves to cuddle, take sun naps outside on the deck and beg for dinner like any other dog. I may not walk like other dogs do, but I sure do have a happy life and a happy attitude. My foster mom can teach you to take care of me, it's not difficult. It's not any more work than any other dog is, it's just a bit different. Here's what you get when you adopt me: bedroom eyes, soft long hair in a beautiful mahogany color, cuddles galore, and a constant companion. I am a very good and gentle boy! I don't bark very much, but when I do, my foster ma says I sound like I am underwater. I have no idea what that means, but I'll demonstrate when we meet. I need a home with lots of toys, snuggly blankets, and someone willing to deal with a little poop once in a while. My bladder needs to be expressed manually, but you just squeeze my tummy and out it comes. No biggie. Takes 20 seconds and it's super easy to learn. I love meeting new people, and I am very friendly to everyone i meet. DREAM has helped dogs of all capability levels and we believe this guy is really easy to care for. Resource material is available for you to order as well. One of the original board members wrote this extremely helpful book about day to day life with a "down dog".... Honey Have You Squeezed the Dachshund. If you are interested in adopting Holden, you can fill out an application right on our website! Go to our online adoption application. Holden 's adoption fee is $350.00. All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds. Holden will go to his new home microchipped, altered, heartworm tested, and up to date on vaccinations. Most dogs' veterinary expenses are greater than our adoption fees. DREAM is an all-volunteer rescue group. We focus on the metro Atlanta area and can assist throughout the state of Georgia. Because we are all volunteers, we can consider applications only within an hour of these areas. DREAM does not recommend purebred dachshunds for families with children under 5, or families planning to have children during the dog's lifetime. Dachshunds are often not patient with little kids, and kids can accidentally hurt a doxie's back. Follow us on Instagram , Facebook and Twitter

Story
How delicious is a dapple? Vince is no exception to that hard and fast rule. This boy has personality in SPADES! He is such a cool little wiener dog with a curious way of seeing the world. His previous owners loved him but did not have the means to care for him properly when he suffered an IVDD back injury. Once he came into DREAM, we took Vance in right away to see our specialist vet, who performed surgery on three ruptured discs. Since then, he's gone through physical therapy and his foster mama is a pro at helping him through all of his stretches and exercises, and short of getting him a Pilates reformer, he's gotten the works for sure. While the surgery and therapy have helped him greatly, he will need to be expressed to help him to go potty. When kept on a schedule of expressing, he’s house trained . To help him get around, Vance has a new set of wheels and he absolutely loves rolling around exploring all the world has to offer. He's a friendly little muppet who loves his people and has the gumption to thrive no matter his circumstances. It's impossible to be around him without smiling.

Story
Right? Can you EVEN with that sweet look on his face? Buddy Ross is a total nugget; we kind of love him - but yeah, we love them alllll, so there's that. Through no fault of his own, Buddy comes to DREAM after his previous owner became unable to care for him. He's been loved his whole life, and he has a lot of love to give. He enjoys playing with toys, and gets on well with other dogs. We aren't sure about cats. Buddy is a people dog, for sure. He loves grownups and kids, and he gets along with other dogs. He wants nothing more than to be in your lap, giving you kisses. His soulful eyes will make you feel like he sees and understands everything. Buddy is an Isabella dachshund (silvery blue fur) and like most Isabellas, he has some hair loss aka alopecia. He doesn't take medicine for it, but would need sun protection like anyone else if he were exposed to the elements. He'll also want a little doggo sweater in the colder weather. He's accustomed to using wee-pads to do his biznezz, but we're working on getting him used to the idea of fertilizing the grass instead of going inside. He's a champ at wearing belly bands and he is crate trained. Buddy loves squeaky toys and bones of all kinds. (He is also a sneaky thief of paper towels and napkins. 😅 The ideal home for Buddy would be someone who wants a constant companion. If you're looking for a friendly, low-key, playful, "your own little shadow" companion look no further than Buddy Ross. Complete an application right online.

Story
This may be the most unique profile you ever read. Yes, we say READ. Why? Well....we aren't going to show any pictures of this dog until you have. Intrigued yet? We hope so. Read on! The reason we want you to READ first is to get a good understanding of who this dog is....and NOT what he looks like. He is absolutely, positively adorable, and everyone instantly falls for him...but he is not for everyone. In fact, he is not for most. He has some serious health matters that most people won't take the time to read about or understand, much less be able to handle appropriately, simply because he's too cute. And these health matters are relatively easy to handle for the right person with the right attitude. Most just see tons of cuteness in front of them and instantly disregard everything else. He & DREAM can't afford for that to happen. We've spent a lot of time and effort (and financial resources) getting Dusty Britches back into good health, so we hope to truly inform you of him & his needs FIRST and then show you his photos later. We promise, you'll like them. So, let's dive in. Dusty Britches is a long-haired, neutered male, ~5+ years old (turns 6 in May.) Sweet as pie. Softest hair & most soulful eyes you've ever seen. He's a petite little guy. ~10 lbs, fluff and all. He came to us after his mom passed & his dad was no longer able to provide sufficient care for him. We quickly realized something was just not right with Dusty. He was constantly retching, massively anxious, and undiagnosed until he arrived at DREAM. To further complicate his matters, the anxiety also triggers his regurgitation. The vets confirmed our suspicions...he has both Megaesophagus (aka M.E.) and separation anxiety. Good news is he now has meds for both of these conditions. It's taken us a long time of working with Dusty to get here, but he's been so worth the effort. What is Megaesophagus? Good question. It's just as the name describes....Dusty Britches has a section in his throat (or esophagus) that is too large and causes some liquids and food to collect there, and not passing directly to the stomach. Dusty Britches has a team of specialists in this disease help to figure out where his irregularity is located (lower esophagus), that it is a mild situation compared to other M.E. dogs, and that it is now being well managed with 2 medications taken twice daily. Sildenafil helps constrict his throat muscles (making the enlarged place tighten up / get smaller prior to meal times) and Metoclopramide helps speed up digestion once food is in his stomach. These 2 meds have immensely improved his overall condition and have greatly minimized the amount of regurgitation he endures. The cost of these 2 meds is ~$12/month. M.E. also requires a fairly strict diet. Consistency is key. New foods or treats can aggravate his condition. We will share what has worked successfully with him, once we get to that stage with any applicant. Why is it important to control the regurg? Aspiration Pneumonia (aka A.P.) is the answer. It's something M.E. dogs become highly susceptible to. If he coughs up food that then enters the lungs, A.P. will occur...not "if" but "when" is always the case with foreign items entering the lungs. The substance, such as food, saliva, vomit, or medication, brings in bacteria which can cause the infection, and that bacteria quickly spreads. A.P. can be lethal if not treated, hence our desire to avoid it at all costs. And guess what? Since getting his meds figured out, we have not had any instances of A.P. Now let's chat about his separation anxiety. Dusty can be a nervous little guy at times...so much so that our vet recommended medication to help ease his worry. Dusty has proven once he bonds to you, he absolutely will adore you and HATES to be left alone. And his meds have helped this condition a bunch, but he has a lot of learned behaviors too. With that, we are seeking that loving & patient person who is willing to continue to work with Dusty on his behavior in a positive manner. DB would do best with 1 owner, or a partner that doesn't mind being "shunned" by him. Dusty just has a hard time bonding with more than 1 person at a time. He won't be aggressive to the others in a home - he will simply bark on occasion and run back to his 1 person. We've had him in multiple foster homes and he does well in all of them, but again, he relies on just 1 person in each home. And a crate at home is out of the question. He absolutely will not tolerate it, and it further aggravates his M.E. The only place he sits quietly in a crate in is at the vet's office. (Thank goodness for that - as he's spent much time there while he's been with us.) Fun fact - he's an EXCELLENT car rider. The car is a huge motivator & calming agent for him - he adores getting to go, lays right down, loves to sit while you shop or dine (proven Maxxinista - tee hee), and shows way more patience being in the car than he does waiting for someone to come home. But he can't go with us 24/7 & sometimes just has to stay at home. We give him a large hallway or bathroom (not the entire house), some soft music, and a soft bed to lay on. Sometimes he howls and cries. Sometimes he flings himself at the front door, but neither of these happens always. Sometimes, he's quiet & patient and just lays in his bed awaiting our return. Yep, we've seen it all on the Dusty-cam. ☺! To help Dusty with his anxiety, he takes another med for this. It too is twice daily, like the M.E. meds. It's a 1/2 tablet every 12 hours of Clomipramine and costs ~$40/mth. More fun facts about Dusty Britches. Dusty has a Bailey Chair (google it) that his foster parents made for him. Dusty is super easy to train b/c he is highly food motivated. He is also incredibly smart and eager to please. He took to his new chair with the greatest of ease. Dusty also knows a "wait" command. We use it for meal time so he doesn't rush the bowl. We also use it at the door to go outside. He LOVES to rush out the door to run thru the fenced-in yard. (He'd love for you to teach him more commands.) Dusty does enjoy sleeping in the big bed with his humans, even the partner he might be afraid of when out of the bed. He gives the best morning snuggles and wake-up kisses. Dusty really isn't into toys, but does love a good walk. Dusty also enjoys adventures like hiking or boat rides. Despite his anxiety, he really does love to go places with his people. Dusty just wants to please his person and get lots of reassurance that he's doing a good job. He now knows a "wait" command and we use it in many scenarios...like meal time, so he doesn't plow right into his food, or at the front door when we need to leave, so he doesn't try to go with us. He is known to run straight to the car door and beg to get in. Can you tell we've had a lot of fun with this boy, despite all we've had to work on? This boy is absolutely guaranteed to make you smile and want to give him the biggest hugs ever. He knows how to grab your heart and hold on tight. So...why do we share all this with you? It's because we want to set Dusty Britches up for success in his forever home. If you feel he is the type of dog for you, you don't mind the monthly financial commitment to his meds, you don't mind a little clean up from his M.E. and a little anxiety...then please apply for Dusty Britches. Once we receive your application and get thru the pre-screening process, we will then make contact with you, share lots of pictures, and start our next rounds of talks to see if he's still as good a match as you think he might be. We believe he's worth it, and for the right person, they will too. If you are interested in adopting Dusty Britches, you can fill out an application right on our website!
