Stark is a six-and-a-half-year-old Dorkie (Dachshund/Yorkshire Terrier mix). He is a friendly little guy who loves to be with people! He has his summer haircut and when his coat grows out it will be longer, like a yorkie.
Stark's wish list includes:
- Can be an only dog or with other small dogs
- Someone to continue working with him to maintain potty-training
- To be leash walked or have a 6 foot or higher fenced yard
- No cats, birds, or small animals - No apartments or high-rises
Stark came to rescue with his brother when his owner entered the service. He is a little shy at first, but warms up quickly and will soon be your shadow.
Stark has longer legs and is able to easily jump over a 4 foot fence. He will need a home where he is leash walked several times a day or there is a 6 foot or higher fence. Stark walks well on a leash and enjoys long walks.
He gets along well with the 2 senior dogs in his foster home. He does best with dogs near his size and smaller. He seems to be intimidated by large dogs and barks at them. He is interested in cats, squirrels, and especially birds that we see, so he would not do well in a home with any of those as pets.
He enjoys meeting new people. He is nervous around very young children, but is fine with older children who know to be gentle with him.
Stark is a sweet dog that loves attention. He would be fine as an only dog if his owner is home a lot. He has been sleeping quietly in a crate at night with no accidents. He would prefer to sleep in the Big Bed with his people though.
Stark is making excellent progress on his potty-training. He did some marking at first, but with frequent trips outside and vigilance on the part of foster mom, he has improved. His new family will need to keep an eye on him, especially at first
In the house, he mostly follows foster mom around or sits in a dog bed nearby. He is pretty quiet, but will bark a little when left in the house or when he hears unfamiliar noises.
Stark is a handsome fellow who would love a new home where he can spend time with his people and enjoy walks or a securely fenced yard. See more photos or Stark and get additional information by visiting his personal pet page here!
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!
Looking for an adopter in FL or other southern states.
Hi Folks! My name is Austin and I am a happy little doxie. I look just like the prototypical dachshund you see in books or magazines. I am quite the physical specimen - athletic and love to take walks.
I get along great with other animals but do enjoy my time being the only pet so I can get lots of love.
Let me tell you what I love.... I am very chill with my new foster family and am happy to sit and be cuddled with or just lean into their legs on the couch. I am so chill, my family said they haven’t even heard me bark yet! I love to explore any place I visit, nose to the ground checking everything out. I am house and leash trained, and don't need to be crated. I love my walks, do great on my leash and car rides, too.
I have bad teeth, but AADR is taking care of that. I will have a dental on July 28 and will probably lose most of my teeth. Foster family can’t wait for me to have sparkling teeth and fresh clean breath!
Here’s my wish list:
- A household were someone is home a lot so I have someone to pal around with.
- To be an only dog - Someone to hug and pet me as much as you want!
My foster parents will gladly give you more info once I’ve settled in a little longer. I just traveled 15 hours to get from TN to FL, so I’m looking to stay in FL or another southern state. I DON’T want another long transport ... okay?!?
BTW, my first owner surrendered me and I went to another rescue group where I lived with 18 dogs. That rescue then turned me over to AADR because they wanted me to have the best life with a forever family of my own. AADR will find me that family. Is it you?!? I sure hope so ‘cause I want to be spoiled and loved on all day!
Bama came from Northern Alabama when the family could no longer care for him.
Our wish list for this sweet boy includes:
- A fenced yard
- No apartments
- Another adult dog to keep him company if you have to be gone
- Well-mannered children who respect a dog's space
If we had to describe Bama in one word, it would be “friendly”!
He loves to meet people and will greet you with a tail wag. He does very well with other dogs but will bark if other dogs start the concert.
He just had a dental and did not lose any teeth, and he’s at a perfect weight.
Bama loves lap time and cuddles on the couch but he’ll also follow you around the fenced yard. If you do not have a fenced yard please do not ask if we’ll make an exception, as we will not. Since his family gave him up we feel he deserves a lasting forever safe home. You can’t go wrong with Bama if you are looking to add a new dog to your pack! See more photos of Bama and fill out an adoption application on his pet page, here!
Sammy is the Barksdog for AADR.
