Callie came from a family in East Tennessee who took her to the vet to be euthanized. Thankfully, the vet refused and got them to sign her over to them and they then reached out to us. She had a Urinary Tract Infection and she has SARDS (Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration Syndrome).
Please do not let the fact that she is blind scare you away from this sweet girl. She finds her way around the house and the yard just fine. She will even play a little with one of the younger fosters we have and she likes to cuddle with them in a doggie bed and guess what... if you put a blanket in her doggie bed she’ll work until she has herself covered up. So sweet!
Our must have’s for her incldue:
- A fenced yard is a must
- Hopefully another small dog in case you have to be gone for a portion of the day
- No apartments or high rises
- The patience to help her learn your home and fenced yard
Callie has very thin fur due to natural baldness. For that reason we want to see her stay in the south because she does get cold since she has little fur to keep her warm. So, we're looking for a home for her in Florida, South Georgia, or South Carolina, please.
You won’t go wrong with this little girl and she’ll give you a ton of love in return for a warm bed and good food!
============== 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 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.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN A RESCUE.
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 and MidWest. 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.
