RESCUE #:  2015-06-01-05



Heather and her five siblings were born on June 1, 2015 in a vet’s office in Tennessee, after their mom, Cupcake, was surrendered by a family who couldn’t take care of her anymore.  She sleeps a lot, like all puppies do, but when she is awake she is full of energy and love!  If you loved to be kissed, and you want a puppy to call your own, then Heather just might be for you!  However, just remember that puppies are a LOT of work, and they really do require someone at home around the clock (aside from errands) to train and take care of them.  If you have little or no experience with owning a puppy, I highly recommend a book called “The Puppy Primer” by Patricia B. McConnell, which you can get from Amazon.  “Dachshunds for Dummies” (on Amazon as well) is also an excellent source of information, even if you already have experience with dachshunds.  So, if you are prepared to own a dachshund puppy, please don’t let her foster location (which is in Columbia, Maryland) stand in your way.  We have a slew of volunteers who will help with transporting your “new best friend” to her forever home (for only an additional nominal cost for a health certificate)!  All of Cupcake’s puppies will be ready for transport starting the weekend of August 8, 2015, so fill out your application now at www.allamericandachshundrescue.org!  If you have ANY additional questions about Heather, please feel free to email me, Mary Anne, at maryanne70@gmail.com.

More about Heather......NJ

Good with Dogs, Is Not Good with Kids


=============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============

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 $45 fee added for the required Health Certificate. 

We will not adopt into the state of 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 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.

If you are interested in adopting this Dachshund please review Read Before You Adopt and then you can complete an Application.


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. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well.  For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
