ZAK Z-6 came in with 18 other dogs from a puppymill bust in Taledaga, AL where they were kept in cages all their life. Considering how they were treated they are amazing dogs. They are friendly after just a bit of getting used to you. Suck up love like a sponge, trying to make up for all the time they didn't have any. He is working on his housebreaking and is doing very well. He is very submissive so would do fine with a female dog but a male dog would bully him and we don't want that for him. He is sweet sweet as they come and comes to me now and jumps against my leg for attention which is a good thing. This boy is wonderful please give him the home he deserves!!
Out of State and Canadian adopters are welcome. We do not ship our dogs cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN A RESCUE.

Good with Dogs, Good with Kids
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 dachshund's back or get bitten.
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 mid-west. We just can't get them from one coast to the other. For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
