BIO: Rocky came from South Carolina when a Good Samaritan saved him from a bad situation. Sadly, he was low heartworm positive, so he’s going through treatment and will be ready for his new home at the end of December, just in time for the New Year.
We believe Rocky was raised in a round x-pen and when he first came to us, he ran in a perfect circle. As he’s been here longer, he circles less unless he’s stressed or excited. Whoever adopts him needs to understand that in time, we believe he will get over this. Rocky loves to be outside when the weather is nice, and he loves toys and will run around with them in his mouth. He gets along with the other female and male in the foster home but has shown too much interest in the cat that’s in the laundry room.
Our must-haves for little Rocky include:
- A fenced yard
- Another young, small dog as he loves to play
- Someone with the patience to help the real Rocky come out
- No apartments, high-rises, or condos
- Does seem to prefer the man of the house
Rocky truly is a great dog, he just needs a chance to show you that he really is a happy boy and will give you years of loyalty. Please consider giving him a home!
============== 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 dachshund’s back or get bitten.
If you have questions about this dog, please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed on the bio form. They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.
There will be an additional $60 fee added for a required Health Certificate if traveling out of the state in which they are being fostered.
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 any 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 who will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast or Midwest. We just can't get them from one coast to the other. Please look for dogs on your coast.
