Oscar was adopted 2.5 yrs ago and returned to us in May due to the fact that he went down in the back. His previous owners were educated about dachshunds' weight and the risk of stairs but still allowed him to do stairs and get 6 pounds overweight. He is now back down to 13 pounds.
Our must-haves for this sweet boy include:
- A fenced yard
- CANNOT do stairs/steps - No jumping or climbing
- Another dog to keep him company if you have to be out of the house
- His weight maintained at 13-14 pounds for his back's sake
- No apartments or high rise apartments or condos
Oscar is only going to PT now once a week and only to strengthen his muscles even more in his recovery. Don't think he can't run because he can keep up with the best of them that's way he has to have a fence yard. He loves kids, people and attention. If you are home a lot he would be well as an only dog. He is the major toy destroyer. He loves to go for short walks and doesn't pull on the leash. Oscar will always walk with a bit of a wobble walk but it only adds to his charm. PLEASE GIVE HIM A CHANCE AT A LASTING HOME.
If you are looking for a project but also want a sweet companion, please consider adopting Oscar, you won’t be sorry! Fill out an adoption application and see more about Oscar, including a short video, by visiting his personal pet page here!
Let’s have a big drum roll for Hero! This young Dachshund/Beagle mix has the potential to be a fantastic dog! He has come so far in the few weeks he has been in foster that we can say once he finds his forever home, he will blossom into a wonderful dog.
We don’t know much about his past. We do know that he was found by a kind family out in the country in Arkansas. Evidently, he and two siblings were dumped out in the country. They were taken in by this family and found their way into rescue. Because of this unfortunate past, Hero is VERY shy and skittish with strangers. He will try to run away because he is not used to being treated kindly by humans. He is slowly getting over his past and is learning how to be a dog and know what it is to be loved.
These are the requirements for adopting Hero:
-Must have a fenced yard
- Must have another young small dog for him to play with
- Someone who is home a lot to help him with his housetraining and to teach him to be a “good dog” - No apartments or high rises
He is working hard on potty training and, because he is still a puppy, that has its ups and downs. Also, he likes to chew on things. He is getting over that as well. He loves to walk around the house with a toy in his mouth, sometimes two, and loves to curl up on a pillow or blanket when the humans are busy with work or chores.
Hero gets along with both females and males but cats are an unknown at this point.
What Hero needs most is his forever home. In a permanent, loving home, he will finally learn to trust and become a fantastic family companion. You coud be his loving forever home! See more about Hero and fill out an adoption application by visiting his personal pet page here!
Shirley came from a shelter in East Tennessee where she was turned in because the owner had passed away.
Shirley is a sweet dog but don’t tell her she’s 8 years old as she sure doesn’t act it. She loves hanging with the younger dogs and playing with them.
Our wishes for her include:
- A fenced yard
- Another smaller dog for her to hang with and keep her company if you have to go out
- No apartments or high rises
- Someone that can be home more a lot as she loves her people
If you think you can give this lady her last forever home, please feel free to reach out to her foster mom. Shirley’s friendliness will warm your heart! Just look at that smile! She thinks she is a Dachshund and we have not told her any different.
See Shirley's contact information, more details and pictures on her personal pet page here!
Chipper is a sweet, sweet boy! Chipper came from a shelter in East Tennessee where his owners dumped him. He came into rescue at a whopping 31 pounds. We’ve helped him lose 8 pounds but he needs to lose about 7 more pounds. While doing his vetting it was discovered he has Cushing's Disease and will need to be on Vetoryl for this condition. Just one pill a day, no big deal.
Our wish list for him includes:
- No apartments or high rises - A fenced yard is preferred
- Another dog his age to keep him company if you have to leave the house
- Aware that the medications will cost about $40.00 per month
Sammy is the Barksdog for AADR.
