BIO UPDATE (9/5/2022):
To My Potential New Family,
I have been with my foster parents now for a few weeks and wanted to give you an update...
I have had several teeth pulled and will need to have small kibble food or soft food for the rest of my life. Also, for the health of my other teeth, it is best I am on Peri Support, which is just a dry powder you can add to my food. It also freshens my breath!
I have lost some weight and I am now at an ideal weight, so I also need to stay on a senior food.
I found out that I have mild arthritis in my knees so I need to never jump on or off furniture. I know how to use ramps. The vet says it is also a good thing for me to stay on a joint supplement.
I am a very sweet boy who does love to eat. I sleep all night in my bed, and I go outside to potty. I only bark when I want something. I am just a low-maintenance dog, and my foster mom says I am a sweetheart. I love my foster parents, but my dream is to have a forever home. Is that you?
BIO: Who wouldn’t want a friendly senior citizen to join their pack? Scooter is friendly to both dogs and people. Just wags his tail! He came from a shelter in Alabama, we aren’t sure how he ended up there, but their loss is your gain. You know there is no such thing as a stray, right?
Our must-haves for this sweet, sweet boy are:
- A fenced yard
- Another small adult or senior dog for him to buddy with
- Someone who won’t crate him when they leave only gate him in a room
- No apartments, condos, or high-rises
If you are looking for an older gentleman, then Scooter is the one for you! If you want a slower-paced guy but still one that likes to take a turn around your fenced yard, then he’s it. Scooter is as close to perfect as you’re going to get!
============== 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 on the bio form. They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.
There will be an additional $60 fee added for a required Health Certificate if traveling out of the state in which they are being fostered.
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 any 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 who will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast or Midwest. We just can't get them from one coast to the other. Please look for dogs on your coast.
