BIO: If you wish to adopt both brothers, let us know, and we'll work with you on the adoption fees.
Keegan is one of four babies born in rescue 5 days after we took in their mom and dad from a family that was moving and could not take them.
Mom, Bell (available for adoption also), was DNA tested, and she is 56% Dachshund, 29% Chihuahua, and 15% 2 other breeds. Mom is about 8 pounds and mostly Dachshund, so none of her puppies will be big. We think the daddy is a black Chiweenie, and he's with our rescue as well.
His personality is just starting to come through, and he is learning to wrestle and play with his sibling, Rory (who is also in our care and ready for adoption). The sweetest little guy, Keegan, loves to give kisses! Both pups are eating hard food now.
If you are interested in adopting him, you must fill out our online adoption application and select his name... you won't be sorry adopting this affectionate boy.
Our must-haves for little Keegan include:
- A fenced yard
- Another young dog or cat, under 20 pounds, to play with
- You must have enough time and patience to potty train him
- No apartments, condos, or high-rises (no shared walls)
============== 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.
