BIO: Tessa is a very special little girl! She was a puppy-mill dog and was then sold to someone who could not keep her due to working long hours. Please don’t look at her color and coat and think you must have her. She is timid and takes time to warm up. She will also need work with housetraining so if you do not have the patience to teach her to be a pet and work on housebreaking, then please keep scrolling. We are going to be very picky where she goes because she deserves the best of the best.
Our must-haves for gorgeous Tessa include (please no exceptions):
- A fenced yard
- No apartments, high-rises, or condos
- Someone with patience, patience, and more patience!
- Someone with former puppy-mill dog experience is preferred
- Someone who is home a lot to keep her on a schedule for pottying
- Another YOUNG (4 yrs or under), SMALL (15 lbs or less) dog in the home for her to learn from and play with
If you meet all these, then please apply but as we said previously, we are going to be very picky. We know Tessa and what she needs and that’s what we’ll be looking for.
============== 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.
