BIO UPDATE (2/10/2020):  This little guy is:

  • FUN!!
  • Energetic
  • Smart
  • Happy
  • Playful

Trigger is one of the happiest doggies I've ever met!  He loves to play, he loves lap time, he loves walks and to eat; there just isn't much he doesn't love as long as he's with his people!  If you have a cat, it needs to be dog savvy.  If you have a 10 or 12-year-old child that wants a pal, Trigger could be your dog!  He also would love another younger playful (but more submissive) doggy to play with.  Something else Trigger loves to do is to bark at other doggies, or even kitties on the TV.  Every time he sees an animal on the TV he runs and barks at them.  He does fine on rides too.

If you're worried about potty training, don't be.  Trigger is the most potty-trained dog I've ever fostered!  He loves to sleep in the big bed with his people every night and once he is in bed, that's where he stays.  He is crated when we leave but doesn't care for it.  He really is about as perfect as a doggy as you could ask for. 

This handsome hound really just needs an active and loving family to call his own.  Please apply or contact the foster home if interested. 

BIO:  Trigger came from a shelter in middle Tennessee where he was dumped by his owners who said they didn’t have time for him.  Not only that, they used a cheap flea preventative on him which chemically burned his back and he’ll never have fur grow there again.  When Trigger came into rescue the burns were still healing but he’s fine now.  NO cheap flea and tick preventative for him ever again.  Trigger:

  • Must have fenced yard
  • Must have another young dog or two to play with
  • Is very enthusiastic in his play and can be a little rough
  • Would benefit from having children over 10 years to play with and help him use up his puppy energy
  • Loves attention
  • Does well riding in the car
  • Prefers to be dominant but gets along with other pups, both male and female
  • Should go to a home where someone is home with him most of the time

Trigger is friendly to all dogs and humans.  He loves his people unconditionally and is very affectionate.  He is a Dachshund mix and has longer legs but don’t let that fool you, Trigger is still very much a Dachshund.  We just think he’s got a little something else mixed in.  

Trigger is a super sweet boy who really needs and deserves a family who will love him and not dump him again.  Is that you?

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.

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 and mid-west. We just can't get them from one coast to the other. For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
