BIO:  This cutie pie is Penny, aka Willow. A Good Samaritan in North Carolina saved Willow from a dreadful life of living 24/7 in a crate for the past six years. Willow is the sweetest little girl I have ever fostered! She is so happy to be out of that crate and exploring her new world! Her favorite time of day is mealtime! That’s so understandable, considering she came into rescue weighing only 5.5 lbs. due to rarely being fed. She is now at her perfect weight, 9.7 pounds. Willow needs to stay a tiny girl (under 10 pounds) to avoid extra pressure on her legs and back. Willow’s front left leg has a bent bone, so she avoids putting any weight on it. She happily hops around on three legs (see her video below) when not sleeping in any nearby doggie bed.

Willow has a significant cataract in her left eye, limited hearing, and no teeth, but don’t feel sorry for her.... she doesn’t let anything get her down! This girl is always upbeat and positive! She gets along with the three other doxies in her foster home, rides beautifully in the car or stroller, and never meets a stranger. Willow loves everyone! AADR has found that a monthly shot of Librela for her arthritis and daily eye drops for her dry eyes have been a game changer. She will need to continue both when adopted. She recently had a dental with an oral fistula repaired and her last three teeth removed. BTW, all her bloodwork is great! She is not a barker, so she could live in an apartment, condo, or townhome.

Our must-haves for sweet Willow include:

  • No stairs in the home unless you plan always to carry her up and down
  • Ramps are difficult for her so she must be carried and lifted
  • She can be an only dog or in a home with other small adult dogs
  • An adopter in Florida or a nearby state would be nice

Due to extra cartilage, Willow has the cutest “flying nun” ears that will cause you to smile every time she looks at you! Willow’s foster mom, Meg, will be very picky looking for the perfect family to adopt her. She deserves a WONDERFUL home for her future... is that yours? If you have any questions, you can reach out to meg1709@comcast.net. You will not regret adopting Willow, she is beyond precious!!!

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