BIO: 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.

=============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============
If you have questions about this dog, please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above. They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.
We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $45 fee added for the required Health Certificate.
We will not adopt into the state of CT, RI, NH, ME or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you need to take this up with your legislatures.
To understand the adoption process through AADR, please review the Adoption Information on our home page. Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.
Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers that will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well. For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
