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 has created a calendar that celebrates this lovable, funny (and stubborn)
breed of dog who enrich our lives with their love.
The funds from the creation and sales of our calendars helps our
rescue pay the bills associated with rescuing our furry friends.
They are perfect for your home, office and for gift giving!

Sophie came to us from Eastern Tennessee when her owner passed away and she was taken to the humane shelter. She does have a skin issue that we are clearing up but other than that she’s a great girl with a lot of love to give!
Our must haves for this darling girl include:
- A fenced yard
- Can be an only dog since she wants all the attention
- Someone who is home a lot as her previous owner was
- Continuing to work with her on her skin issues and maintaining her healthy weight
- No apartment or high rises
- Someone who LOVES to cuddle
This little girl doesn’t really understand what has happened and she’s so very sweet! If you are looking for a soon to be senior, then please consider her as she’ll give you all the love and devotion she has! Please read more about Sophie and see more photos on her personal pet page. You may also fill out an application or contact her foster mom for more information by accessing Sophie's page.
Max is a wonderful little guy and if you are only looking for one dog and a wire, this is the dog foryou! He's a great dog, he just doesn't like to share attention, which is why we are looking for a furever home without other dogs. You can't go wrong with this guy!
Max has been with us a while now and we can't understand why no one wants to adopt him. He's housetrained and loves toys. He will play by himself with toys or if you want to throw his toys he'll go get them.
These are the must have's for handsome Max:
- A fenced yard since he loves being outside
- Someone who is home a lot to keep him company
- No apartments or high-rises - No children or grandchildren
Max minds very well. He does do some cowering if you raise your voice, probably because he was harshly disciplined by his previous owners.
We don’t know much about Max other than he came from East Tennessee and was surrendered to a shelter because the grandkids kept hitting him with sticks. For that reason, there cannot be any children or grandchildren in his furever home.
He is friendly with adults once he knows they can be trusted. He is a wire but it’s believed they shaved him down.
If you’d like more information on him, please contract his foster mom. Please see it in your heart to give him his last and best home! Click here to see more of Max and fill out an adoption application today!
BIO UPDATE (6/28/21): Martina is a fun-loving girl looking for that special family she can call her own.
She's ready to cuddle with you while you read or watch television. She will hang out in the garden while you tend to your flowers. She loves to play with toys and other dogs. She loves to bring her toys to you so you can throw them... she will even bring the toys back so you can throw them again.
Martina gets along with her foster brothers and sisters beautifully. She is not food aggressive. She needs to be in a home with another playful dog to keep her company.
The pictures on her Pet Page do not do her justice! She has a smooth coat the color of peanut butter and honey. She has a small compact body ready for fun.
ORIGINAL BIO: Martina came to us from a shelter in Alabama along with her two puppies. She is a sweet, sweet girl and just wants a chance to show you how wonderful she can be.She has the most beautiful blue eye and the mix of Dachshund and Beagle is a great combination. (Just remember, both are prey-driven hunters.) Martina loves to cuddle with you and would love to sleep with you at night. She does like to play so a young, smaller dog in the home would be best.Our wish list for this beautiful girl includes:
If you are ready to add a playful gem to you life and your dog’s life, consider this beautiful girl! Make her a part of your family - fill out our online adoption application and contact her foster home. See Martina's personal pet page by clicking this link!
- A fenced yard
- No apartments or high rises
- Another dog or two for her to play with (small dogs preferable)
- Someone who can be home part of the time
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 visiti his personal Pet Page here!
Sherman was surrendered to a Tennessee shelter when his family could no longer care for him. He has been neutered, is up-to-date on shots, and has had a dental.
Sherman is doing well in his foster home and gets along with the other Dachshunds. He is interested in the cats but doesn't bother them.
Sherman likes being outside and checking everything out in the yard. He walks well on a leash.
Sherman really loves his human and will always be at your side. He is very loving and has a great personality. With that being stated, we think he would do well with kids over 9 years of age and will need a home where he is not left alone for long periods of time.
We think Sherman has recovered from a back injury at some time in his life but don't let this stop you from adoring him because what a love bug he is!
Our must haves for sweet Sherman include:
- A fenced yard - No apartments or high-rises - Another small dog around his age
- Someone who is home a lot to keep him on his potty schedule
Please consider giving Sherman the forever home he so deserves. He is a great dog!!! See more of Sherman and his details by visiting his pet page, here!
Lucy was found as a stray in Alabama, but she loves to be around people and does well with children over 10.
She is not comfortable in your lap or up on furniture but will be happy to play on the floor with you. Lucy loves to be petted and her ears scratched.
She is housebroken and walks well on a leash and will let you know when she needs to go out. She is not a barker at all except if she is out in the yard, she will come to the back door and bark once or twice to alert me she wants back inside.
Lucy gets along well with other dogs and is not defensive or aggressive with dogs she does not know when we are out for a walk. She needs a fenced yard as she likes to roam and relax in the grass.
Lucy is on medication for Cushing’s Disease which will need to be continued for the rest of her life.
What we need for this little lady:- Fenced yard - Someone home a lot - Another dog in the home to keep her company - No apartments or high rises
If you can meet these requirements and give Lucy a loving forever home, fill out an application today! This sweet girl will be happy to take all the love you can give her! See more about Lucy on her Pet Page here!
