BIO: Mr. Peabody came to rescue from Georgia because he was not good with his owner's small child.
Our must haves for this handsome boy include:
No apartments or high rises
A fenced yard
A Dachshund savvy adopter
Mr. Peabody is shy when he first meets new people, but if you give him some space, he will become a happy little fellow. He seems to warm up more quickly to men, but with a little more time, he enjoys female companionship too. He would do best with an adopter who is familiar with the dachshund personality.
Mr. Peabody walks well on a leash and enjoys exploring the fenced yard. He would be fine as an only dog or with a small female dog. He does not get along well with cats and some male dogs, so he should be the only boy dog in the house. It appears that Mr. Peabody spent too much time crated in his previous life, so he should go to a home where he will not be left in a crate. He is housebroken so he is fine when left out in the house.
Mr. Peabody has plenty of good looks and charm, and deserves a great home for the rest of his life. If Mr. Peabody sounds like the guy for you and you meet ALL of our "must haves" for him, please fill out an application and then contact his foster mom to discuss this sweet boy.

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