Adopt a Dachshund / Mixed

Dachshund / Mixed Dog

Dillon the Dog needs a home

Hi … my name is Dillon and here are some things you need to know about me: 

Approximate age/birthdate: ~ early 2015

Weight/size:  ~20 lbs

Housebroken:  YES ... as long as you do your part 
Crate trained:  YES

Personality:  happy, playful, guarded in new situations

Energy level:  medium with bursts of high

Fenced yard required?:   YES – he definitely needs a safe place to run off excess energy.  Until he has training and will consistently come when called, a fenced yard is required.

Does he/she jump fences?  NO 

Leash walk:  YES
Obedience training:  No … but he is a smart little guy and learns quickly

Riding in vehicles:  RIDES OK     

Spayed/neutered:   YES

Up-to-date on routine vaccinations:   YES

Microchipped:   YES

Social with other dogs:  YES ... once properly introduced.  He gets excited when meeting new dogs and does not like dogs getting in his face.  He definitely needs some obedience training to polish his manners

Social with cats:  Do not know … has not been around cats

Good with children:  Has not been around children but think he would be fine with older children.  His energy might be too much for toddlers. 

Adoption donation:  $175 

We don’t know a lot about Dillon other than that a Good Samaritan took him in to keep him safe after he appeared to have been abandoned on a rural road.  His Good Sam said he sat in one spot on the road for several days and appeared to be waiting for his ‘ride’ to come back to get him.  After about 4 days, he gave up and went looking for food and water. 

We are not really sure of Dillon’s breed mix, but he is adorable.  He has a dachshund-like body (long and low) with the head of a tiny yellow lab!  Dillon is just adorable, and what he really needs is a family who wants to help him develop some confidence and some manners so he can be the lucky dog he is meant to be.  He is very excitable and vocal and will not be the best apartment resident. 

Dillon will do best with an active family willing to play with him and teach him how to be the best boy ever.  Could that be you?
If you think Dillon might be the perfect pup for you, please go to and complete your adoption application online.

We are an all-volunteer group, so please be patient and understand that it takes an average of 7-14 days to process the applications including reference checks, follow-up questions and home visits.  You can expedite the process by providing accurate email addresses for all your references.  Time to make phone calls is limited and we often have multiple applications in process.  We make every effort to move through them as quickly as possible. 

When your application is approved, we will schedule a meet-and-greet to see if Dillon picks you too.

If it seems that the adoption will be a good match for all, there is an adoption fee, and an adoption contract to be signed.

Please email AAMR at [email protected] if you have additional questions.
