BIO:  Sugar came from a shelter in Northern Alabama, where she was taken when found as a stray. Our wish list for this beautiful girl includes:

  1. A fenced yard
  2. No apartments or high rises
  3. Another dog to cuddle and play with
  4. Someone who is home a lot because she loves her people

Sugar is just the sweetest girl, she loves to play with other young dogs and loves to chase birds flying through the yard and that's why she has to have a fenced yard. She loves it when you sit down and she can lay beside you in your chair or on the couch covered up with a blanket of course. She does need to be fed separately because she doesn't like sharing food. She is house-trained.

If you will notice in the pictures she is holding one foot up... that's because there is nerve and tendon damage. She came from the shelter that way and we have no idea what happened. We tried physical therapy and laser therapy with no success. Then we tried a custom designed brace hoping to stretch that tendon out. She didn't tolerate the brace well. Sugar's orthopedist, physical therapist, and prosthetic designer have tried to help her but nothing has worked. So for now she gets around on three legs, but does use the bad leg to balance herself with. 

She cannot use a lot of steps but does use a ramp at the foster mom’s house.

If you are interested in her and would like to reach out to her foster mom please do so, she'd love to hear from you. Or fill out your online adoption application to start the process of taking her 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.
