AADR is a non-profit 501(c)(3) volunteer based organization.
We work tirelessly to save homeless Dachshunds and place them into loving, forever families.
The dogs below are hoping they will be in their forever home soon! Thanks for considering them for your forever friend!

Chance was tied to the owner’s porch and they went off to Florida. Neighbors stepped in and took her to the shelter and we were contacted to take her.
Chance sadly is blind with SARDS (Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration Syndrome). Do not let this stop you from adopting this sweet girl. She does not know she has a disability. She moves around the house and down the ramp to the back yard with ease. It just takes her a couple days to figure out “the lay of the land” and then she’s great.
Chance's wish list includes:
- A fenced yard so she can safely explore - No apartments
- Another dog to keep her company when you aren’t there
- Preferably someone that’s home a lot because she loves her humans
If you can look past her blindness and see the wonderful girl she is, then you need to put in an application right away because you won’t find a more perfect dog than Chance! See more photos and read more about Chance on her personal pet page here!
Diamond came from East Tennessee as a stray. She wandered into someone’s yard and we were notified after they tried to find the owners.
A bit about this precious girl:
- Takes a little to warm up - Needs a fenced in yard
- Would like another dog (male or submissive female) to keep her company if you have to be gone
- Toy possessive - Does not like a crate
This little one is so sweet and was extremely thin when we got her but with some good food and larger portions, she’s gaining some weight and is almost where she needs to be. She is an excellent eater.
We guessed her age to be around 8 years, which is about right for the 11 teeth she lost in her dental.
She is very active and loving and she wants to be near you all the time. She also enjoys cuddling and being loved and giving kisses. She is looking for a home that will not dump or abandon her again, so please reach out to her foster mom if you’re interested in knowing more about this sweet girl.
P.S. She’s happy sleeping on the couch at night while everyone is tucked in bed for the night, though she really wants to sleep in the Big Bed with you.
Sugar came from a shelter in Northern Alabama, where she was taken when found as a stray.
Our wish list for this beautiful girl includes:
- A fenced yard
- No apartments
- Another dog to cuddle and play with
-mSomeone who is home a lot because she loves people
Sugar lives up to her name as she is the sweetest little girl!
She is hand-shy so someone had beaten her and we can’t figure out why because she’s so sweet, no trouble, and minds very well. So why?!
We and out vet are guessing what she is mixed with, but what we can tell you is she has a long body, loves to give kisses, and loves to be cuddled under a blanket. Now doesn’t that sound like a dachshund?
Don’t worry about your side of the couch or when you are not in your chair because she’ll keep it warm for you but will kindly move when you ask her too. She also is happy to sleep on the couch at night so you can have the bed all to yourself.
She does have a bad right front leg that has nerve damage from some kind of traumatic accident or beating. We are going to do physical therapy and put her in a brace to see if that will help her to walk on it. If that is not successful (the specialist is not real hopeful), then we’ll have to amputate.
We’ll keep her bio updated, but please don’t let that stop you from adopting her, she is so worth it and she gets along just fine not using it! See more photos and read more about her on Sugar's pet page here!
