Savannah came from a hoarding situation in northern GA, and she most likely lived in a cage and did nothing but produce babies.
Here is what we know about this sweet girl:
-She loves her people and will follow you everywhere
- Loves lap time
- Must have someone home a lot to keep her on a strict potty schedule but will follow you out in the fenced yard
- Gets along better with male dogs and only submissive female dogs
- No apartments
This poor baby was nothing but a breeding machine and because of that she has so much to learn and is curious as can be, wanting to check everything out.
Dapple to dapple should never be bred with eachother unless you study the genetics and when breeders only breed for greed, many of the pups end up deaf or blind or both. In Savannah’s case, she is only blind in one eye and can hear, so she’s one of the lucky ones.
She used to be growly of lap time but she’s getting much better now that we’ve been working with her. She does need a strong pack leader to not let her run the show. Because she’s been a breeder dog for 8 years she’s going to need someone that will give her some time to learn to be a pet. Everything is all new experiences to her. Would you please give her a chance to be the beloved family member she should be? Please read more about her on Savannah's personal Pet Page here!
Trigger came from a shelter in middle Tennessee where he was dumped by his owners saying they didn’t have time for him. Not only that, they used a cheap flea preventative on him which chemically burned his back and he’ll never have fur grow there again. When Trigger came into rescue the burns were still healing but he’s fine now. NO cheap flea and tick preventative for him ever again.
- Must have fenced yard
- Must have another young dog or two to play with
- He is very enthusiastic in his play and can be a little rough
- Would benefit having children over 10 years to play with and help him use up his puppy energy
- Loves attention
- Does well riding in the car
- Prefers to be dominant, but gets along with other pups both male and female
- Should go to a home where someone is home with him most of the time
Trigger is friendly to all dogs and humans. He loves his people unconditionally and is very affectionate. He is a Dachshund mix and has longer legs but don’t let that fool you, Trigger is still very much a Dachshund. We just think he’s got a little something else mixed in.
Trigger is a super sweet boy who really needs and deserves a family who will love him and not dump him again. Is that you? See additional information and photos of Trigger on his Pet Page here!
- Sweet - Loving! - Playful! - Cute!
Hello! I am Hector, the incredibly sweet Dachshund mix. My tail tells me that I have some Pug mixed in and my foster parents think maybe even some beagle. I don’t know myself, but I can tell you that I am looking for my forever home.
I was surrendered to a shelter in West Tennessee. I don’t know why because I am very sweet and very snuggly. I just need some more time for getting the potty training down pat. I am working very hard on that now. I use a doggy door here at my foster home.
I get along great with my foster siblings and love to play. I would really like to have a forever home with a playmate.
I will go in a crate, but once my foster parents put me on the big bed, I rolled around in sheer joy. It was so comfy! When I get adopted, I would really like to sleep in the big bed.
Right now, I am learning to be strong and confident. I sometimes cower and my foster parents are teaching me that I have nothing to be afraid of.
I MUST have a yard that is fenced in. I love to run around and burn off energy, especially with other dogs.
Please see more about me on my personal pet page here!
Pita was turned into a shelter in NC due to too many animals in the home, and that truly was her lucky day. We were contacted to take her!
Pita is sweet and friendly and loves to be cuddled! She loves attention from you and will follow you all around.
She will need your patience when it comes to house breaking as we believe she was a breeder dog and is still learning to be a pet. If you are looking for a sweet girl that will need your help and patience in the house breaking department, then she’s your gal!! See more information and photos of Pita on her pet page here!
Sweet little Noah came to our rescue from NC. He had not had a real opportunity to learn to be a dog, play with other dogs, walk on a leash, or be socialized with people. Therefore, Noah’s adopter must have lots of patience as he learns to be the wonderful pet he can be.
He has come far since coming to his foster home where there are four other dachshunds, both male and female. Noah gets along great with all of them.
Noah was in need of dental care when he came to rescue and unfortunately lost all of his teeth. Noah had fistulas (open holes in his gums where teeth were pulled) that had to be sewn up. He will be getting gum flaps in January with a veterinary dental specialist in Atlanta. Once Noah heals, he will be good to go. He eats only soft canned food.
Noah has the most beautiful soft coat. His thick fur feels like a little lamb it is so soft! Even though he may not look like it in the pictures, he will have beautiful long cream hair once it grows back out.
Noah did fantastic on his walk with a companion dog to show him the ropes. He loved every minute of the mile-long walk! (Check out his video on this Pet Page!) He just needed another dog who loves walks to show him how it’s done!
We can tell already Noah will be a great leash walker. It truly warmed his foster mom’s heart to see how much this little dog loved what was probably the first walk of his life.
Noah definitely needs a home with another well-adjusted dog to help teach him how to enjoy being a dog. The more he can be socialized the better. He has SOOO MUCH POTENTIAL! All he needs is to learn to trust and not be afraid of men.
If you are experienced with pups who need help with confidence building and are up for the challenge, Noah won’t let you down! See more detail about Noah on his personal pet page here!
