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.

The dogs below are hoping they will be in their forever homes soon! 
Thanks for considering them for your forever friend!

2022 FP Banner_Cody
2022 FP Photo Cody 2Cody's  story is going to make you sad and angry at the same time. Cody came from Alabama when he was turned in by his elderly owners saying they could no longer care for him. We understand that, but what we can’t understand is why they put one of those Walmart harnesses on him when he was little and NEVER took it off!! Because of that, behind his front legs, you’ll see it’s indented and the fur is black since it was a black harness (you can see what we are referring to in the pictures on his pet page - link below). Why anyone would do that is beyond us... we don’t understand.

What we want for Cody is someone who will never do that to him again and to prevent him from being in that kind of harness, we are going to give the new owners two custom-made harnesses that won’t go behind his front legs and constrict him again.

Our must-haves for adorable Cody include:

  • A home where he’ll be an only dog and treated like a king
  • A fenced yard is preferred but he can go to a family that walks and potties on a leash because off leash he would be GONE!
  • Someone who either works from home or is newly retired
  • A home with no shared walls in case he decides to bark while you are away

Cody is a sweet, sweet dog, highly food motivated, and he loves to lay in a doggie bed. He doesn’t demand to be in the Big Bed but if you want to, he’s willing and able.

We just want him to forget his past and have nothing but sunny skies from here on out, can you help this boy out? Please read more about him and fill out an adoption application by visiting Cody's pet page, here!

2022 FP Photo 3_Journey

Journey came to us from Middle Tennessee when he was found wandering down the street with a cable and spiral tie out attached to his collar. That was his lucky day! We were contacted and he immediately went to the vet. They found that his ears were so infected they were almost completely closed, and he had a yeast infection on his skin and a severe flea allergy to the point the back half of his body was bare of fur. We knew we could help him and get him a much better life. That’s where you come in, he’s all healed and all but a quarter size bald spot near his tail is all that remains of his past life. So who wants to adopt this sweet boy? He loves attention but doesn’t hog it, and he likes to play with toys and other small dogs.

Our must-haves for sweet Journey include:

  • A fenced yard
  • Someone who is home a lot
  • No apartments, high-rises, or condos
  • Another small dog or two to play with (he’s been with as many as 5 other small dogs in the foster home)
  • Kids over 7 years old that he could play with 

He is taking an allergy shot once every six weeks which could probably be discontinued during the winter months. Grass seems to be the trigger.

At night he’s happy just sleeping in a doggie bed in your bedroom. He will also let you know when he needs to go potty and he does like the foster mom’s fenced yard, so that is a must.

If you meet all the requirements above and want to give him his last, much-better home then please don’t wait to apply to adopt him. Please email his foster mom, she'll be happy to tell you all about this sweet, funny boy who loves squeaky toys! See more photos and get contact information, here!
