BIO: Hi, my name is Prissy! I lived my whole life with one person, but my special person got sick and had to go away. Then everything got scary and I got put in a shelter. I was very scared because the shelter was a very noisy place, and the people who brought me there were a bit rough with me. But then AADR came and got me!
Things got even better when I got to my foster Mommy's house. In the beginning I howled about everything. But now I feel settled in and secure. I definitely need someone who is home all the time, and I like it to be structured. I feel really secure that way... you know, get up, go out, have breakfast (I really love meal time!). Have morning nap and then I love the deck, I go out there with my foster siblings. It took me a while to get used to them, but now I'm okay. I would be okay if I was the only dog too! But it's better with a buddy. Mealtimes I like to be in my own corner to eat, but I love to be part of the herd when treats and hugs are being passed out.
My foster mommy says you just have to go slow with me at first and gently guide me into the routine at your home. I follow my mommy all around and want to be where she is. I like to go for quiet walks with her too. Well, I'm really looking forward to having a loving forever home. I wag my tail a lot, especially when my foster Mommy talks softly and sweetly to me. I will wag my tail for you too and promise to be by your side always. Hope to hear from you soon!

============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============
AADR does not recommend dachshunds for families with children under 5, or families planning to have children during the dog's lifetime. Dachshunds are often not patient with little kids, and kids can accidentally hurt a dachshunds back or get bitten.
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 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 will 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 and MidWest. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other. Please look for dogs on your coast.
