BIO:  Let’s have a big drum roll for Hero! This young Dachshund/Beagle mix has the potential to be a fantastic dog! He has come so far in the week and half he has been in his foster home that I can say that once he finds his forever home, he will blossom into a wonderful dog.

We don’t know much about his past. We do know that he was found by a kind family out in the country in Arkansas. Evidently, he and two siblings were dumped out in the country. They were taken in by this family and found their way into rescue. Because of this unfortunate past, Hero is VERY shy and skittish with strangers. He will try to run away because he is not used to being treated kindly by humans. He is slowly getting over his past and is learning how to be a dog and know what it is to be loved. 

These are the requirements for adopting Hero:

  • Must have a fenced yard
  • Must have another young small dog for him to play with
  • Someone who is home a lot to help him with his housetraining and to teach him to be a “good dog”
  • No apartments or high rises

He is working hard on potty training and, because he is still a puppy, that has its ups and downs. Because he is still a puppy, he likes to chew on things. He is getting over that as well. He loves to walk around the house with a toy in his mouth, sometimes two, and loves to curl up on a pillow or blanket when the human is busy with work or chores. Hero gets along with both females and males but cats are an unknown at this point.

What Hero needs most is his forever home. He has come a long way in 13 days and in a permanent loving home, he will finally learn to trust and become a fantastic family companion. Could you possibly be that 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.
