BIO UPDATE (1/26/22):  Ms. Sugar has really come out of her shell now.  She is such a funny girl.  She does zoomies around our kitchen table in the morning and anytime we come home.  Then when she stops, she flops over for belly rubs.  In classic dachshund form, she has become a bit territorial now that she thinks this is her home.  But, she is all bluff!!  One of the most amazing things we have noticed about Sugar is she doesn't get into garbage, tear open groceries when accidentally left close by, or bother anything that is not given to her.

She will do anything not to get into trouble if you tell her "no" at all, she runs for her crate.  She tries so hard to do everything right.  She also has given me her full trust with all her heart, even though it's still scary for her, and lets me do anything with her.  She is one precious little girl and will be a happy loyal addition to any gentle, loving family.

Shirley definitely would do best with another dog in the home to keep her company when alone. She is independent and will hang out laying in the sun by herself, but does like company around, and it would help keep her from getting separation anxiety.

BIO:  Shirley (aka Sugar) is about the sweetest and lowest maintenance dog you could find! She was pulled from a shelter in Alabama when AADR rescued her. We will never know what this precious girl went through in her past. When she first came to us, Shirley was so scared of being picked up that she braced and ducked when you reached down to pet her. But her trust and confidence came fast and built daily. After a week, she was following us around and giving us kisses. She now even rolls over for a belly rub. Her tail is always wagging to greet you.

Shirley gets along great with other dogs, big and small. She knows how to use a doggy door but also lets you know if she needs to go out. Shirley sleeps as long as you want in the mornings without a peep, rarely barks, and goes out and comes right back in after using the bathroom. She is fine with full run of the house at her foster home.

Shirley was overweight when we got her, so her new home will need to monitor her food intake.

She is the perfect companion for an older couple or single person. She is low energy but does have a precious playful side with other small dogs. She would do best in a calm household with no small children.

Shirley wants to be loved, give kisses, feel safe, and be spoiled!

Shirley's dream home includes (no exceptions, please): 

  • A fenced yard is a MUST
  • A warm lap to sit in
  • Another dog would be great, but is not a must IF you are home a lot
  • Someone who is gentle and patient to help her through her fears
  • No apartments or high-rises
  • No small children
     

============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============

AADR does not recommend dachshunds for families with children under 5, or families planning to have children during the dog's lifetime. Dachshunds are often not patient with little kids, and kids can accidentally hurt a dachshund’s back or get bitten.

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 $55 fee added for the required Health Certificate.

We will not adopt into 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 will 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 and Midwest. We just can't get them from one coast to the other. Please look for dogs on your coast.
