Adopt a Dachshund (short coat)

Dachshund (short coat) Dog

Rudy the Dog needs a home

This little guy is an 8 yr old doxy who recently lost his home and his vet has asked us to find him a home so he can live a happy, healthy life. He has Cushings disease and will need a daily medication taken at the same time every morning for the rest of his life which we can supply while in foster care. He is friendly and quite active and as long as he stays on his medication he has a normal life expectancy and should live another 5+ years to his vet. We do not know if he is housetrained yet. He gets along with other dogs and the clinic cat. If you can supply endless amounts of belly rubs and would like to foster this sweet boy until he finds his permanent home, we can supply a crate and meds. As you can see in this photo, he seems to be pleading for someone to love him. If you can help Rudy, please message us or maybe you can share? And of course, there is always the possiblity you may want to adopt him so we have a two week foster to adopt trial program. Go to to fill out an application.

Our adoption fee is $130.00 and it helps to cover a portion of the dog's vetting costs. The adoption process includes the completion of an application followed by an interview.
