BIO: This story is going to make you sad and angry at the same time. Cody came from Alabama when he was turned in by his elderly owners saying they could no longer care for him. We understand that but what we can’t understand is why they put one of those Walmart harnesses on him when he was little and NEVER took it off!! Because of that, behind his front legs, you’ll see it’s indented and the fur is black since it was a black harness (you can see what we are referring to in the pictures). Why anyone would do that is beyond us... we don’t understand.
What we want for Cody is someone who will never do that to him again and to prevent him from being in that kind of harness, we are going to give the new owners two custom-made harnesses that won’t go behind his front legs and constrict him again.
Our must-haves for adorable Cody include:
- A home where he’ll be an only dog and treated like a king
- A fenced yard is preferred but he can go to a family that walks and potties on a leash because off leash he would be GONE!
- Someone who either works from home or is newly retired
- A home with no shared walls in case he decides to bark while you are away
Cody is a sweet, sweet dog, highly food motivated, and he loves to lay in a doggie bed. He doesn’t demand to be in the Big Bed but if you want to, he’s willing and able.
We just want him to forget his past and have nothing but sunny skies from here on out, can you help this boy out?
============== 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.
