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.
Each year, AADR creates a calendar celebrating this lovable, funny (and stubborn)
breed of dog who enrich our lives with their love!
The funds from the creation and sales helps our non-profit
rescue pay the bills associated with rescuing our furry friends.
Our calendars are perfect for your home, office and for gift giving!

The dogs below are hoping they will be in their forever homes soon! Thanks for considering them for your forever friend!

BIO UPDATE (10/6/2021): Johnny is doing so well in his foster home. He loves to play with other dachshunds, has mastered the doggie door, loves running the yard, and plays with his toys. Johnny is good with commands, loves walking on a leash and enjoys meeting new people and animals. Johnny would love to have a “Furever Home” of his own. He is a great little pup!!
ORIGINAL BIO: Johnny came from Illinois when he was rescued by a Good Samaritan from an abusive situation. He is a little timid at first but does warm up quickly. Because of his timidity, we are saying children/grandchildren 10 and over only because loud noises and running would make him too nervous. He’s fine with other dogs that like to play and has been having a ball playing with other young Dachshunds in the foster home.
Our must haves for this gorgeous boy include:
- No apartments or high-rises as he does like to bark at noises
- A fenced yard is a must for him to run off his puppy energy
- Another young small dog for him to play and run with
- Someone who is home a lot to help him master his house breaking skills
While he has only been in our rescue for less than a week, we already know he’s going to be a great dog once he gets neutered. He is a little shy but if you give him time he does warm-up and is your best friend in no time. He loves attention! Because he’s been in at least two homes, we are going to be very selective where he goes so this will be his last. Love this boy forever - visit his pet page and see more about him here!
Clyde has settled nicely in his foster home. He is a great dog - very friendly and loves everyone he meets! He is a happy little boy who enjoys his walks and his squeaky toys. He gets along well with his foster mates and is respectful of their space.
He is always up for a belly rub or back rub and will nudge for more. He loves being with his person. He definitely needs a fenced backyard so he can chase anything that dares to come in. He appears house-trained but may mark initially, a belly band deters that. He is a true love bug who deserves his forever home!
Clyde came from Tennessee when his owner was no longer able to care for him. At first Clyde was a little standoffish but warmed nicely. He prefers not be picked up and likes peace & quiet (i.e., a home without young kids.) While he is a senior, a benefit is he's leash, crate and house trained!
Our must haves for this adorable boy include:
- A fenced yard - No apartments or high-rises
- Someone who is home quite a bit and another smaller adult dog
If you think he would make a good addition to your family please consider putting in an application for Clyde, he needs you! You can see more photos and read more about him on his pet page, here!
Blue came to us from SC when his owner could no longer care for him after his back surgery. Blue can walk with a bit of a wobble walk but we think he will benefit with PT and cold laser and acupuncture. We are going to start him on that ASAP but the adopter will have to keep that up to help him walk better and not have so much curve to his back.
- Blue has to have a fenced yard
- No big dogs or young small dogs that want to rough house
- No stairs or jumping and he CAN NOT get over weight
- No apartments or high rises
- Can be an only dog in a home where the owner is home a lot
Blue is a sweet sweet boy that loves attention and be where his owner is so it would be better if someone was home a lot but when left he is fine but will bark when you leave at first and then when you come home other than that he’s a quiet little boy. We won’t let him on the couch but make him stay in doggie beds on the floor and he’s happy with that.
Because he had bladder stone surgery a couple years back he is on Science Diet CD dog food to prevent them from coming back again.
If you are considering Blue please reach out to his foster mom so she can explain his care and see if you are up to the challenge. You won’t go wrong he’s a wonderful little guy that just had a bad rap of IVDD and bladder stones but he’s a very very loyal little boy that just wants to be loved. Read more about him, see more photos and fill out an adoption application for Loyal Blue by visiting his personal Pet Page here!
Abby came from a family in Indiana when the owner passed and the family could not keep her. Abby missed her owner at first but has now accepted the fact that she is with us. We are looking for a family who understands she was with her owner 24/7 and wants to be with you all the time so someone who is home a lot is what’s best for her.
In the foster home she was good with a kitten but we are not sure how she would handle it if the cat ran. Abby wants to be an only fur kid in the house.
Abby likes to be told she’s a good girl and she likes belly rubs!
Our wish list for adorable Abby includes:
- A fenced yard
- No apartment or high-rises due to some possible barking
- Someone who is home all the time or at least a lot; she does settle down after she’s left alone and just sleeps
Winni came from a family in Pennsylvania that could not care for her any longer due to health issues of one of the family members.
Winni truly is just a sweet, sweet little girl but she'll need some work to be a part of a family. She was played with and the game was keep away. They would chase her and now she thinks that’s a great game. So instead of coming to you when you want to pick her up, she runs away. Her adopter will have to let her know that it’s not a game and have her come to you while you are sitting down so she can be picked up and not run away.
The excellent news? Winnie is just a 7 month old babe and is well socialized so lots of time to form a wonderful bond.
She also needs a small, young dog (3 years and under) to play with because she plays and plays and plays. Having another dog will also help her with her housebreaking skills. She does sleep all night in a gated room with another dog with no accidents.
You must have ALL of these requirements (not just some):
- No apartments or high-rises - A fenced yard
- Someone who is home a lot to finish her housebreaking skills
- Another small, young, very playful dog for her to play with
- An adopter with patience so she can be the type of pet she should be!
This little girl is likely going to stay small, (probably 10-11 pounds,) but has a lot of growing to do in other ways. She's obviously cute as a button, but does come with some luggage from her previous family and that will be going with her when she is finally adopted into the right home. We're going to be pretty picky, so if you meet Winni's needs, please see more about her and apply here!
