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

=============== 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.
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.
