BIO:  Looking for an adopter in Florida or another Southern state

Hi folks! My name is Austin and I am a happy little doxie! I look just like the prototypical dachshund you see in books or magazines. I am quite the physical specimen - athletic and enjoy walks. I get along great with other animals but do enjoy my time being the only pet so I can get lots of love. 

Let me tell you what I love... I am very laid-back with my new foster family and am happy to sit and be cuddled with or just lean into their legs on the couch. I am so chill, my family said they haven’t even heard me bark yet! I love to explore any place I visit, nose to the ground checking everything out. I love my walks, do great on my leash, and I like car rides too. 

I had bad teeth, but AADR took care of that. I had a dental on July 28th and lost most of my teeth. The teeth I have left are now sparkling and I now have fresh clean breath!

Here’s my wish list:

  • A household where someone is home a lot so I have someone to pal around with
  • Someone to hug and pet me as much as you (and I) want!

My foster parents will gladly give you more info once I’ve settled in a little longer. I just traveled 15 hours to get from Tennessee to Florida, so I’m looking to stay in Florida or another Southern state. I don't want another long transport, okay?!? You can email my foster dad (Ray) at Doxieray941@gmail.com for an update on my progress, but why not fill out an application first? It makes my life easier, and my foster dad’s too!

BTW, my first owner surrendered me and I went to another rescue group where I lived with 18 dogs. That rescuer then turned me over to AADR because they wanted me to have the best life with a forever family of my own. AADR will find me that family. Is it you? I sure hope so ‘cause I want to be spoiled and loved on all day!

=============== 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 $55 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.
