BIO UPDATE:  Poncho is a teddy bear!

Poncho wants you to know that his favorite things include going for a ride, following foster mom any where she goes, cuddling on the sofa, wiggling on the bed to scratch his back and blankets - but not necessarily in that order.  He loves to cuddle with any of his foster siblings that will let him.  Poncho says he wants a stay at home mom but a stay at home dad is ok too!  Even better, he gets both!  He also wants you to know that he is doing great with house training, as long as he is taken out on a schedule. 

BIO:  How could my family do this to me? I was loyal to them, why me??  Don't they know I loved them with my whole heart and then they dumped me!

Poncho was one of the dogs who were dumped in Williamson County Tennessee.  Left alone with no way to defend himself, luckily a Good Samaritan took him to the shelter and they in turn contacted us.  Poncho's list includes:

  • Needs a fenced yard
  • Another dachshund or smaller older dog to buddy with (male or female, doesn’t matter)
  • No apartments
  • Someone to make his last years better than his first 12 years

Poncho doesn’t act like a 12 year old!  He likes to be with his people so it would be a plus if you are home a lot.  He also likes to hang out with other smaller dogs and can be seen laying with them in a doggie bed.  He has no teeth left after his dental so no high dental bills for this guy!!

If you are looking for a dog to rescue and feel good about it, then think about Poncho... he will be happy to keep you company on the couch, in the big bed, and in the fenced yard.  Please help him find his last forever home.

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