Zeke is a breeder surrender/retiree from North Carolina, along with two other Dachshunds. Like a typical breeder dog, he’s very shy and will need a lot of patience to win him over. Don’t apply if you’re not willing to understand he’s not socialized and he’s scared in unfamiliar places. Don’t just look at his color and decide you want him.
Our must haves for this gorgeous boy include:
- A fenced yard
- No apartments or high-rises
- Another small dog around his age who is well-socialized for him to learn from
- Someone who is home a lot that can work with him
If you can’t check all these boxes, please save your time and don’t apply. With all this being stated, when he learns to trust you and becomes a beloved pet, he’ll be the most loyal of all dogs you’ve ever had. Think about it long and hard... do you want to just adopt or do you truly want to “rescue” a Dachshund?
============== 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.
