Peanut came from Alabama when his owner could no longer care for him. She had rescued him from a family that neglected him for his first 5 years and likely a man had hit him with his hat because he does not care for men wearing hats.
Our wish list for Peanut includes:
- A fenced yard - No apartments
- Another dog to keep him company if you work outside of the home
- No children or grandchildren unless they are over 10 years of age and closely monitored
- Someone experienced with escape artists
Peanut is a little timid so you have to let him come to you, but after he’s checked you out then he’s fine and wants your attention. He actually does better with women than men but he can tolerate men too as long as they don’t push him. He gets along with all small dogs but take into consideration he was an only dog, too. All in all, Peanut is a very sweet little guy who just needs patience and people to accept him the way he is.
His most recent owner was a senior and home all the time. Peanut must have a fenced yard - and a doggie door would be an added bonus. Also, he is an escape artist so you’ll have to watch him when you open a door or go through a gate. We’ve been working with him on this and he’s gotten better, but if he sees an opportunity he’ll take it so be forewarned.

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
- Someone 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!
Oscar came from Indiana when the family had to give him up because he was not good with the toddlers. Our wish list for this sweet boy includes:
- A fenced yard
- Another dog to keep him company if you have to be away from home
- No apartments, young children or grandchildren
Oscar is a great boy! As with many Dachshunds, if they are not kept around small children as the dog ages, they can’t stand the quick movements or loud noises that toddlers make. We do think that he would do fine in a home with children or grandchildren over 10 years of age that know how to respect a dog’s personal space.
Unfortunately, Oscar lost most of his teeth in his recent dental. He only has 4 left, 2 canines and 2 incisors. He’ll need softened hard food for the next month, and then you can start adding hard small bites of kibble to transition him over to hard foods, but no hard treats.
Oscar gets along with other dogs just fine. He loves to wander around in a fenced yard and he loves a doggie door. He does need the fenced yard but it’s not necessary that you have the doggie door.
Good with Dogs, Good with Older/Considerate Kids Only, Good with Adults, Requires a yard, Leashtrained, Cratetrained
Oscar comes with his own bed and his wire crate that came from his original owners as well as a few other items. Please consider giving Oscar his last forever home. He’s a wonderful dog and will do great in your home if you’ll just give him the opportunity and security. For more information and photos, visit Oscar's pet page here!
Bama came from Northern Alabama when the family could no longer care for him.
Our wish list for this sweet boy includes:
- A fenced yard
- No apartments
- Another adult dog to keep him company if you have to be gone
- Well-mannered children who respect a dog's space
If we had to describe Bama in one word, it would be “friendly”!
He loves to meet people and will greet you with a tail wag. He does very well with other dogs but will bark if other dogs start the concert.
He just had a dental and did not lose any teeth, and he’s at a perfect weight.
Bama loves lap time and cuddles on the couch but he’ll also follow you around the fenced yard. If you do not have a fenced yard please do not ask if we’ll make an exception, as we will not. Since his family gave him up we feel he deserves a lasting forever safe home. You can’t go wrong with Bama if you are looking to add a new dog to your pack! See more photos of Bama and fill out an adoption application on his pet page, here!
