BIO:  Oscar came from Indiana when the family had to give him up because he was not good with the toddlers. Our wish list for this sweet boy includes:

  • A fenced yard
  • Another dog to keep him company if you have to be away from home
  • No apartments
  • No young children or grandchildren

Oscar is a great boy! As with many Dachshunds, if they are not kept around small children as the dog ages, they can’t stand the quick movements or loud noises that toddlers make. We do think that he would do fine in a home with children or grandchildren over 10 years of age that know how to respect a dog’s personal space.

He gets along really well with our other dogs and hasn’t shown any aggression at all. He also did fine with our outside cats on the occasions he was near them. Oscar loves to wander around in a fenced yard and lay in the sunshine. He’s completely potty trained and loves a doggie door. He does need the fenced yard but it’s not necessary that you have the doggie door.

Oscar is very loving, affectionate and enjoys burrowing under a blanket for a good cuddle.

Unfortunately, Oscar lost most of his teeth in his recent dental. He only has 4 left, 2 canines and 2 incisors. He eats slightly softened food and small, hard kibble really well. He’s in good health but will need his arthritis medicine for the rest of his life.

A wonderful little senior pup, Oscar deserves a loving 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.
