BIO:  E. J. was surrendered and came from GA where he’d been a loving member of the family until the babies came along.  He was then surrendered because the family was too busy for him with the babies.

E. J. is a great dog and does not act 10 years. old.  He will make someone a great family dog!  They kept him shaved down but we believe if his fur is allowed to grow, out he’ll be beautiful. He loves attention and gets along with male and female dogs. He deserves a fantastic last forever home.  Please consider him as yours and give him his wish!

We want a fenced in yard for him and other dog to keep him company, but he’d also be fine as an only dog.

He’s had a fresh dental and did lose some teeth but if his teeth are cared for from here on out with yearly dentals, he should be able to keep the ones he has. Thank you for looking to rescue and hopefully adopting this sweet boy with a dynamite personality!

=============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============

If you have questions about this dog, please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above.  They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal. 

We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $45 fee added for the required Health Certificate. 

We will not adopt into the state of CT, RI, NH, ME or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you 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.

If you are interested in adopting this Dachshund please review Read Before You Adopt and then you can complete an Application.


Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers that will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well.  For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
