Story
Meet Calvin, a 3 year-old standard chocolate longhair piebald that stood in line twice to get ALL the looks! And while Calvin got ALL the good looks, unfortunately he's got plenty of needs too! Before you fall head-over-heels in love with his hazel eyes and curly brown locks of fur…please read on! Calvin is what we call “HIGH MAINTENANCE” in a dog — he has severe allergies that we simply have not been able to completely curb — and his adopter will need to be prepared to continue the battle to keep Calvin’s allergies under control.  The great news is that thru multiple tests and trial and error we can provide the very long and hopefully complete list of all items that are a no-go for Calvin's wellbeing and his people's peace of mind.Calvin’s minimum monthly budget : Apoquel $60-$80 for 2 month supply, Allermyl Shampoo for his weekly medicated baths $31.21 for 4-month supply, Benadryl for when his allergies get intense $10, Calvin’s weekly food budget for his raw diet and goat milk $50…and don't forget his heartworm and flea and tick meds. BUT, the amount of love Calvin gives you back in return? PRICELESS! Calvin was surrendered by an owner that loved him deeply but unfortunately her life took an unexpected shift when she no longer had someone to look after Calvin when she traveled for work as a flight attendant. We can tell you that we rarely see the level of premium care that Calvin had in his prior home — he has been very loved. What Calvin costs his people in the pocketbook, he more than makes up for in the love department. This boy is the definition of a lover boy and you cannot help but just adore his cute curly standard dachshund coat and positive attitude. Calvin does sometimes require muzzling and wearing a cone at the times when his allergies are at peak (like spring) and sometimes to avoid eating things along the way when he goes on walks. Thankfully he does tolerate both pretty well and doesn’t fuss too much when they are required fashion accessories. Speaking of walks — Calvin might walk at a decent pace for about 30 minutes, but he will likely never be a runner or a hiker. He prefers sofa surfing to sidewalk surfing — or long naps on a blanket (no down or feathers, please) in the backyard. His form of exercise is batting his gorgeous eyes at you and trying to get you to give him a belly rub. Calvin does well on car rides, enjoys bar life, and is happy to join you wherever you go in life so long as he can be with you! Calvin gets along okay with other dogs as he is in a foster home with 2 fur siblings — but he is also used to soaking up all the attention and would gladly do that too (and let’s be honest — you might only be able to afford one dog if you adopt Calvin)! Calvin will be a friend that comes with benefits -- in that he is completely housetrained and crate trained (I mean honestly, is he even a dachshund?)...and leash trained too (though we are hoping you read above that the only time he really gets excited for a leash is to go hang out at his favorite bars around town!So if you find that you are an interested adopter with an extra $300 monthly available for his upkeep -- then we know that Calvin is the guy for you! Calvin’s needs really require an adopter that is home more than they are not (bonus points to adopters that work from home or can take Calvin to work with them-- he is currently a well-behaved office dog ). a close eye to keep him from self-harm, and a home that would be invested in continuing the battle of trying to wean Calvin off as much medicine as possible in hopes that one day we can get this sweet boy to the point of never having to use the muzzle and cone to prevent hot spots.  Further bonus points if you love bathing and trimming dogs. Calvin NEEDS and ENJOYS his home baths once a week and fairly regular trims and is wonderfully patient thru both.  Calvin’s adopters need to be within a 3 hour drive of Central NC. He comes with an entire medical history from several specialty vets to help get him started where he lands. ##2041256##

Maggie (dapple 14 years old) & Layla (red 16 years old)Both weighs around 10 poundsFostered in Raleigh areaBONDED – Only adopted togetherShort version: Good with dogs, cats, kids over 12, pee pad trained (mostly), low key, needs quiet home, apartment friendlyWe are going to use a word that we’ve never used on our page to describe any dachshund ever – low maintenance. And it’s very possible this will be the one and only time we ever utter that phrase here at DBP.But Maggie and Layla are just that – easy and low key. They love each other and they love their bed. Their favorite thing in the whole world is to snuggle together butt to butt. And they will do that all day long. No barking at ghosts, no getting in your personal space, or following you to the bathroom. They enjoy pets and attention, especially Layla, who has the cutest tail wag in the world and is super sweet. Maggie is a bit timid and watches over Layla, but once she trusts you then she warms up and is your friend.They are pee pad trained, but the new family should be OK with accidents in the transition. Layla will go outside but Maggie is a pee pad girl for life. Because of their age and disposition, we are looking for quiet home. They are totally fine with dogs and cats – Maggie will explain her boundaries if needed. Because Maggie can be a touch grumpy at first, they need a home without kids under 12. They are very quiet so would be fine for an apartment. And would be totally content with a working family as well.Maggie and Layla relatively healthy for super seniors. They are both UTD on shots, hw negative, had senior bloodwork (no major issues), spayed and had an extensive dental. Maggie has a heart murmur (3 out of 6) to monitor and both take joint supplements for artritis.Their new families will need to travel to the Raleigh area to adopt – no transports. We prefer families within 4 hours of central NC, which includes, NC, VA, SC and DC area, northern GA, eastern TN, WV and southern MD. Because of their age, these girls adoption fee is a donation of the new owner’s choosing. To get started bringing these sweet ladies home, fill out an application at www.doxiebyproxy.org/orgCheck out the videos of these gals in the comments!It takes a special person to adopt a super senior. And an even more amazing home to adopt TWO. But the love and joy you will get from opening to your heart and home to these ladies is priceless. These girls are sweet, easy and need a spot spot to enjoy their golden years snuggling with each other. ##2089220##

Story
Hamilton 12 pounds 2 years old Chiweenie Fostered in Raleigh area Short version: Sweet, great snuggler, needs someone home more than not due to separation anxiety, no apartments, great with kids over 7, good with dogs, but could also be an only dog, started on slow kill heartworm treatment , crate trained. Hamilton earned many nicknames including Hammy, Hampsterdam, Hamuel Adams, Hampster in foster care. But this handsome guy doesn’t care what you call him as long as he gets to be near his people as much as possible. This guy landed in the shelter when his owner brought him in saying that they found him as a stray. But lo and behold, when the shelter scanned his microchip, they learned that the so called Good Samaritan was actually his registered owner on the chip. But we told him on his freedom ride that we would find a family who would love and cherish him forever and ever. Hamilton is a sweet and affectionate lap dog who adores burrowing under blankets for cozy naps. He enjoys being where his people are, especially using his people as a human mattress. This dude is the world's best snuggler. He happily sleeps in bed with his family and has requested a home with a Hamilton size spot in the big bed. He's already mastered potty training and walks well on a leash. Hamilton can be vocal inside the home and may bark at people he encounters during walks, but he responds well to verbal corrections and quickly warms up to friendly faces. He would do great with an active family that likes to walk to get out his puppy like energy. Because right now car rides have been associated with big changes, he’s not a huge fan of car rides and will whine. Hamilton has been great with his 7-year-old human sister but will set gentle boundaries with her, displaying patience and tolerance in her presence. He interacts with her calmly and affectionately, enjoying her company without showing any signs of aggression. Hamilton is known for his respectful demeanor towards his bossy canine foster sister, showing his gentle and tolerant personality. He gets along great with other dogs, but would also be OK as an only dog. Because Hamilton loves so deeply, he will bark when his people leave. While in foster care, we’ve seen this get better and he now settles in a few minutes. But Hamilton is best suited for a single-family home environment. Hamilton is UTD on shots, neutered, and microchipped. He is heartworm positive and started on slow kill treatment. Doxie By Proxy will pay for slow kill treatment until he tests negative – likely in about a year. His new family will need to drive to the Raleigh area to adopt him – no transports. We prefer families in NC, VA, SC, eastern TN, northern GA, or DC area.

Story
Pepper12 (ish) years oldFostered in Raleigh area16 pounds Short list: Gets along with dogs, housetrained on a schedule, love to go on walks, friendly, energetic, playful, no apartments, needs someone home more than not, no kids under 8, cats unknown We made a mistake when we got this boy in our arms – we should have renamed him TIGGER!! This boy emodies our favorite bouncy disney character in every way. Full of energy. Loves to play. And is the definition of happy. When his energy runs out (which takes HOURS), then he takes nap and then is raring to go again. Pepper was surrendered to the shelter for euthansia by his owners because he was – lethargic. Thankfully, the shelter realized that he had pretty of life left to live and called us. We realized his owners didn’t give the real reason for the surrender when this boy literally DRAGGED us out of the shelter as he wanted to RUN. This amazing boy loves toys. Like he is totally obsessed with anything that has a squeaker. And shockingly, he doesn’t kill them (at least the durable ones) just plays with them (and plays and plays). Every morning he brings all the toys into his foster mom’s home office and later in the day when he wants to move to another room, he brings all of them (and there are a lot) with him to the next room – yes, he makes multiple trips carefully bringing each one as his precious cargo. And if you can’t find a toy, no worries – he’s likely hidden it in the house so he can find it when the mood strikes later. His second (a far second) love is people. He is super duper friendly with new people – he immediately greats with with a tail wag which is more of an entire body waggle. And he’s smitten with his foster mom – he follows her from room to room. But he’s also happy to play by himself and not all up in her business like many creepy stalker dachshund. At night, he happily sleeps in his bed next to the big bed – although we are sure he wouldn’t object to sleeping next to his humans. Pepper gets along with other dogs, but could also be an only dog. He is housetrained when taken on a schedule, but his new family should expect accidents in the transition. Pepper is great on a leash and would love a family who takes walks – it may help burn off some energy (but no promises). Pepper is UTD on shots, neutered, had a dental, is HW negative and is microchipped. He has a mild heart murmer (2 out of 6) that needs to be monitored. His new family will need to drive to the Raleigh area to adopt him – no transports. We prefer families in NC, VA, SC, eastern TN, northern GA, or DC area.

BONDED PAIR – will only be adopted together Sam and Bubba1 years old and 3 years oldFostered in Raleigh area  Short version: Friendly, playful prevously abused, needs quiet home, no kids under 8, gets along with dogs of all sizes, working on housetraining, crate trained, working family friendly You would never guess what these boys have been through when you first meet them – they are happy, friendly and loving. And they will greet strangers with a tail wag and a kiss. But the start of their life was rough. Their human mom was a victim of domestic violence and the man in the house was violent to Sam and Bubba. While their human mom loved and cared for them deeply, she had to move to stay safe and was not able to take them for safety reasons. While they are very well adjusted for all that they have been through and neither have ever shown agression, they have triggers that their new family will need to be patient and understanding. Because the man beat them with a broom, they get very anxious around brooms. The same with water – they were thrown in a lake with alligators to drown – baths need to be taken slowly. Fireworks, gunshots and other loud noises also can be very scary for them as well. We are looking for a quiet home with kids over 8 for this sweet duo. Now for the good stuff. They do good with their foster mom’s full-time work schedule with a mid day potty break. And they get along with other dogs – big and small, but would also be fine as the only dogs – they love to play with each other. They are crate trained – in a crate together – and are getting better on the leash. They LOVE LOVE LOVE to snuggle and especially love to play ball – almost to an obsessive point. Sam and Bubba have made progress with housetraining, but will need a bit more work and patience to get all the way there – especially with pooping.   Sam and Bubba are both netutered, UTD on shots, heartworm neative and microchipped. Their new family will need to drive to the Raleigh area to adopt – no transports. We prefer to adopt to families within a 4 hour drive which means includes NC, VA, SC and NOVA. To get started with the process of adopting, fill out an application at www.doxiebyproxy.org/application These are special boys. They are doing amazing and deserve a family who will help continue to gain confidence while being patient. They are survivors. And they deserve the best life.     ##2097341##
