BIO:  Stark is a six-and-a-half-year-old Dorkie (Dachshund/Yorkshire Terrier mix).  He is a friendly little guy who loves to be with people. He has his summer haircut and when his coat grows out it will be longer, like a yorkie. Stark's wish list includes:

  • Can be an only dog or with other small dogs
  • Someone to continue working with him to maintain potty-training
  • To be leash walked or have a 6 foot or higher fenced yard
  • No cats, birds, or small animals
  • No apartments or high-rises

Stark came to rescue with his brother when his owner entered the service. He is a little shy at first, but warms up quickly and will soon be your shadow. 

Stark has longer legs and is able to easily jump over a 4 foot fence. He will need a home where he is leash walked several times a day or there is a 6 foot or higher fence. 

He gets along well with the 2 senior dogs in his foster home. He does best with dogs near his size and smaller. He seems to be intimidated by large dogs and barks at them. Stark walks well on a leash and enjoys long walks. He is interested in cats, squirrels, and especially birds that we see, so he would not do well in a home with any of those as pets. He enjoys meeting new people. He is nervous around very young children, but is fine with older children who know to be gentle with him.

Stark is a sweet dog that loves attention. He would be fine as an only dog if his owner is home a lot. He has been sleeping quietly in a crate at night with no accidents. He would prefer to sleep in the Big Bed with his people though. Stark is making excellent progress on his potty-training.  He did some marking at first, but with frequent trips outside and vigilance on the part of foster mom, he has improved. His new family will need to keep an eye on him, especially at first. 

In the house, he mostly follows foster mom around or sits in a dog bed nearby. He is pretty quiet, but will bark a little when left in the house or when he hears unfamiliar noises.

Stark is a handsome fellow who would love a new home where he can spend time with his people and enjoy walks or a securely fenced yard.

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