BIO: Clover was surrendered to us by a family that could no longer care for him. He is a sweet boy and just needs a quiet home where he can be loved and cared for. Clover had successful back surgery two years ago, and for that reason, he should never be allowed to jump on and off furniture or do any steps. Also, his weight must be maintained to prevent him from having back issues again. Please do not let this scare you. As with many dogs with previous back injuries, you will just have to be more careful. You should always be careful with a dachshund’s long back, even those with no history of spinal issues.
Clover has a very calm demeanor and would be great with another small dog who also wants to lead the laidback lifestyle.
Our must-haves for adorable Clover include:
- A fenced yard
- Another small adult to senior dog to pal around with
- Someone who can be home more often than not would be great
- A home with no stairs or only a couple going out to the attached fenced area
- No apartments, high-rises, condos, or duplexes
Please don’t let the back surgery scare you; he’s a sweet boy who needs you!
============= 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.
