Oscar 20 FP Banner

Oscar_FP Photo 2Oscar was adopted 2.5 yrs ago and returned to us in May due to the fact that he wentdown in the back. His previousowners 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 16 pounds with less than a pound to go before he’ll be at his ideal weight. 

Our must-haves for this sweet boy inlcude:
- A fenced yard - No apartments or high rises
- 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 15-16 pounds for his back's sake

Oscar has been thru a lot but he’s determined to walk again and we know he will walk almost normally again very soon! His surgery was the 4th of May and he was completely down with no bladder control but he can now wobble walk and can hold his bladder until you get him outside to potty. 

Oscar is a happy boy and loves just loves squeaky toys. He won’t destroy them, he’ll just squeak them and keep them safe. He loves to follow foster mom or dad all over the house and he even likes playing with the other foster dog in the house but that play time is closely monitored.

Oscar is on his last week of physical therapy 3 times a week and will then go down to twice a week until he plateaus. At that time he’ll be done with PT. If he is adopted before that time, the rescue would be happy to pay for the PT until he does plateau. Of course we would have to be in close contact with the physical therapist.

If you are looking for a project but also want a sweet companion, please consider adopting Oscar, you won’t be sorry! See more about Oscar, including a short video, by visiting his personal pet page here!

Sugar FP Banner
Suger FP Photo 2

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!

Brownie FP Banner

Brownie FP Photo

Brownie was a breeder release in middle Tennessee. Brownie is getting better but is still very shy when it comes to strangers. Here are our must have's for this sweet boy:

- No apartments or high rises
- Another young, small, well-socialized dog for him to play with and learn from
- A Dachshund savvy home that will give him the patience he needs to be a well socialized dog
- A fenced yard

Brownie is a beautiful Standard boy who is gorgeous and will turn heads every time you walk him on a leash on your street. But first you will need to socialize him so he won’t be scared of new people and things. 

That’s why we are looking for someone with Dachshund experience who knows the breed and how to help him. You will need patience and another young well-socialized dog to show him the ropes. 

He is approximately 22 pounds now but could get close to 28 pounds when he’s done growing. He warmed up fairly quickly with his foster mom, but she had Dachshund experience; if you push he might try to nip but he has not shown that with her. Foster dad was more of a challenge for him to get used to but now he allows foster dad to pet him and enjoys his attention.

Patience is the key with this boy, as well as the desire to make him a healthy, happy boy who is a part of the family.

Please get more information and see more pictures of Brownie on his pet page here!

Peanut FP Banner_VT

Peanut FP Photo_VT

Peanut was a breeder release in middle Tennessee. Our must-have's for this sweet boy include:

- Someone who is Dachshund savvy, has patience, and will take their time with him so he can warm up, he is shy at first especially with strangers 
- A fenced yard
- Another young, small dog to play with and learn from
- No apartments or high rises

Peanut needs a person that is willing to work with him. While he does warm up he is nervous around new people and situations but once he knows you are okay, he’s the sweetest boy. 

He is a beautiful black and tan with a sleek coat and he’s likely to be a small Standard. He’s at least 16 or 17 pounds and he still has some growing to do.

We need someone that is willing to take their time to house-train and socialize him so he can be the Dachshund he was meant to be. It’s very important that you have another young dog (small breed please) for him to play with and to learn from. See more information and pictures of Peanut by going to his pet page here!


Higgins FP Banner
Higgins FP PhotoHiggins has not had a good life up until he came into rescue. He was dumped in a shelter in East TN not once but twice. We're not sure why it happened the first time but the second time the family lost everything to the Pandemic and they were living out of their car. 

This is what we want for Higgins for his third and FINAL home:

- A fenced in yard
- Another older male or female for him to hang with
- No apartments or high rises
- And a promise that this will be his LAST home

Higgins is a sweet sweet boy and is very low key. He spends most of his day laying either out in sun or in a doggie bed. The only time you may hear him is when he knows it’s time for dinner.

Sadly when we got Higgins he had nasty teeth and they had to be all removed because of dental disease. We also found out that his jaw was broken from one of the teeth that was pulled or from disease before we got him. While it’s not bothering him at all it is suggested that he have NO hard food or treat of any kind. So, it’s softened hard food or canned for him the rest of his life. He’s not bothered by the broken jaw and doesn’t complain because he has to have canned.

Because this boy is so sweet he so deserves a last forever home that will care for him and give him the love he deserves. Please make that home yours. Make him and yourself feel good - adopt him and let him be a part of your family!

Feel free to ask questions about Higgins by contacting his foster mom at her email address located on his personal Pet Page here.
