She is a lively, happy dog although she looks rather wistful on my lap. She wants to be held much of the time but is a chunk.  She weighs 17.5 lbs., all solid muscle.  It is becoming difficult for me to lift her.  She enjoyed her time studying the ducks at the Riverwalk.  We still have our senior dog who is 18 years 2 months and 16 days old.  She weighs about 8 lbs and runs during her walk with Endeavour.

 Gracie HT 2016-A

 

Gracie and I rescued each other mid-January 2016.  I lost my beloved canine furbaby, Pancake, to cancer, on Christmas night 2015.  I was not going to get another furbaby that quickly but my daughters encouraged me and and it was the best thing I could have done.

 

Gracie is such a sweet, loving little girl.  She rarely barks, follows me from room to room, takes hour long daily walks, and loves taking car rides in her booster car seat. She is gaining confidence and trust in people and other dogs. This is a picture of her graduation from training school.

 

Thank you for rescuing Gracie from the Odessa Animal Shelter and being the only adoption group that responded to my request for information.  Gracie was meant to be part of my family!

Clinger HT 2016

Dustin wanted you to know that he had his final booster shots last week. Also, because Dustin is same name of a nephew, on wrong side of the law, we changed Dustin name at vet to Corp. CLINGER, he is the most clingyest dog we have ever had, does not matter, we still love him. We could have changed to Mighty Lizard Chaser, lol.

Dustin is doing very well. My daughter is home now with her mini “Maggie” and the two dogs are getting along fine.  Dustin is a sneak though and manages to steal her toys at every opportunity.  Thank goodness for folks like you that help the critters of this world.  Maggie keeps a watchful eye and one paw over her toys whenever he’s around. I’m only allowed to relax on the couch if both can join me. My next project is knitting sweaters for both of them.

Arlene O.

Nuggie HT 2015

Nuggi Laufman got the best home ever!

Nuggi came into my life on Feb. 11, 2011.  His beautiful blue eye locked into mine and it was love!  (I had only intended to be foster mom, but you know how that goes).

    He loves life and going for walks.  And he's a very smart boy:  he can do tricks like giving paw,  he can wave, spin, down, sit, (almost) leave it!    We are together most of the day and night and he's a total pleasure!  

    His biggest "flaw" is that he tends to be a vertical dachshund -- sitting straight up seems to be the norm for him.  To protect his back I try to get him to be more horizontal, but doesn't work!  

    I bless the day that Nuggi (Nugget) came into my life.

   We now live in a small retirement community and Nuggi is the bright spot in everyone's day!  So so special, my Mr. Boy.

   Thanks again to ADTR for leading this little love into my life.

Susan & Nuggi Lou Laufman

 

Rambler HT 2015

Rambler hit the lottery and found the perfect home!

 Jester HT 2015

 Our Jester continues to live a charmed life.

 He has traveled with us to Colorado and North Carolina and many stops in between.

He has 6 grand children that could say the name 'Jester" before Grandma. He is king of our home.  We are both retired now so there is plenty of lovin to be had for him. :) We are always grateful for you who made this happen for us.

Update: Jester crossed the bridge in December 2019.  Godspeed.

 Brisket HT 2015

To the wonderful folks at ATDR - 

 

Just wanted to say thank you for all of the hard work that you do and for putting my family in touch with Brisket.  It's been 3 months to the day of when we took that sweet boy home to be part of our family.   He was pretty timid at first getting used to his new surroundings, but he sure has warmed up!  He and Gracie (our other rescue doxie) are the best of friends and love playing all day and chasing the squirrels in our back yard! :)  Brisket is so sweet to my three children too, and they just love him!   He loves going on walks with us around the neighborhood, sunbathing on our deck and of course snuggling! 

Here are some pictures of Mr Brisket :) 

Thanks again. Our family is so grateful for you!  

 

Sincerely,

Christine

 Alex HT 2015

 

I wanted to write and provide you with an updated on Alex (FKA Axel). I can't tell you how much my family loves Alex. Alex is the perfect addition to our home. Alex has not only become Marty's (our other dachshund ) best friend, but his brother.  Alex loves to sleep with me every night and is a total joy.

 

 

 

I can't thank you enough for bringing Alex in my life.

Although she's gotten some white in her coat, she's still very active including a fast pace in this year's Buda races.

 

 

Thanks to ATDR and everyone who cared for Trixie before we met her!

Last October Herbert beat every dog he raced at the Mckinney Octoberfest. Olive is a rambunctious free spirited little cutie. Thanks again. Matt, Karen, Herbert and Olive.

The  other dogs all get along extremely well and our other dachshund took them in like long lost sisters. Just wanted to let you know how well they were and to thank you again.  Forever grateful, Paula and Jeff Lasiter

Paige HT 2014

Paige meshed right in with our family. It feels like we've had her so much longer. She's the sweetest most cuddly baby. She's very attached to me and Ben both. We've figured out a very fun toy she just can't keep her eyes off. (Remote control helicopter) We are going to use that as her "bait" when we do the wiener dog races in October!! We've been practicing with it. She runs very fast to get that toy!! She loves her naps, food and riding in the car!! We went to a drive in movie theater last wknd with all the dogs. I swear she was watching it. She stared at that screen nonstop!! Paige is getting on a good routine of potty breaks. We've had a few accidents, we expected that. She's getting better tho, yesterday she scratched at the door to go out!! Yippee!!

I made a little collage of pictures. I sent it to ATDR too to thank them for our little girl. She brightens up our world every single day!!

chester HT 2013

Chester

This is Chester! I adopted this little wiener two years ago, and we couldn't be a better match! I have since brought him up to Austin with me to live in our cute, pink apartment. He doesn't mind all the fluffy blankets and chew toys that fill up our space one bit. He has quite the reputation with my friends, who love coming over and getting attacked with love. Seriously, he brings a smile to everyone who meets him. I cannot have imagined the last two years without this little guy by my side.

 Tiko Marty

Tiko / Marty

I just wanted to give you an update on the wonderful dog we adopted last November. His name was Tiko, but we now call him Marty. He is healthy, happy, and very much a part of our household. As I type this, he is snuggled under my desk with his "sister" Gilda. Every minute with him has been a complete joy. He's a sweet-natured, silly guy who is delightful to have around. Everywhere we go, people remark on his beautiful markings and funny front paws that splay out like seal flippers.

Thanks so much to everyone in ATDR for facilitating his adoption. My husband and I love this little dude more than you could ever know!

Warmest regards,

Stacy Friedman, Kirk Miles, Gilda & Marty

 zach HT 2013

Zach (formerly known as Brewster the Puppy)

Lass, our nanny Lab, is delighted to have a new little charge to take care of.  Zach is following her around and sleeping near or on her!  Max is nearby but not so delighted - more tolerating!  Zach is sleeping with us (and Max) at night.  He creeps over to Max and Max moves away - but no growling, so I am sure it will all work out.

Zach visited the vet yesterday and got his rabies shot and his heartgard. His conjunctivitis ( Lacy - you should check Sammy and the others because he had it when I picked him up and did not respond to simple cleaning) was treated with cipro which he will receive for 5 days.  He will return in a few weeks for his last puppy vaccine and his first rattlesnake vaccine. The vet strongly agreed with waiting on the neutering - he felt 6 months would probably be fine. He also felt that Zach is not going to be any bigger than Max (15lbs).  His front paws are simply splayed and appear large for age.

Zach is getting along well with everyone - very friendly and affectionate.  He is loving his new chew toys and edibles ( with omega 3s for brain and eye development).  He is a smart guy and we will start leash and commands training this week.

 

 

 Belle HT 2013

 

Belle

Belle is thriving and she and Cindy are best buds now.  This pink chair is their favorite.  They are always together.  When Belle cannot find a lap to sit in, she just sits on Cindy.  They furnish me with hours of enjoyment.

 Tony HT 2012

Tony

December 10, 2012 will be the one year anniversary of my adoption. I would like to thank all the wonderful people at ATDR for their help in finding my furever home. I was so lost and so hungry and so very scared when I was taken in at the San Marcos Humane Society! (see pic) Some of you very wonderful people at ATDR stepped in and kept me from being sent to the rainbow bridge and then you found me a possible mom and you gave me a ride to meet her and a possible sister. For mom and me it was love at first sight! My sister Sassie took a little longer to love me, but she quickly fell for my charm and good looks. I have a wonderful furever home now! I never have to wonder whether I will be able to find something to eat today. I never have to wonder whether I can find a safe place to sleep tonight. And I never have to worry about whether that person is gonna hit me or kick me. Life is very very good here! I have 2 meals a day and nummy treats. I have chewies and stuffies that I can rend and shred to my hearts content. Although mom did get a little upset when I got a little carried away with it all and shredded her mattress. She said she wanted a new one! I was only trying to help by making it lighter and easier to carry! Sheash! I have a great older sister to play with. We have a wonderful time and mom laughs and laughs when we turn into a whirling ball of fur, teeth, claws, and snarls. We sound so ferocious! Mom has this big comfy recliner and we all sit in it and watch TV in the evenings and she provides scratches in all the right places. She has a new mattress on the bed now and we all snuggle up under the blankets at night and stay all toasty warm. Yes, life is good now! (see pic) Please keep up the good work you do!!

This is our dog Hush Puppy, whom we lovingly call “Bo”. We adopted him from ATDR back in 2005 and he’s still going strong. He’s a beautiful piebald standard male. Very smart, well-behaved, playful and friendly.

Thank you ATDR.

Luchiano

Luchiano is doing great. We have nicknamed Luchador, and he is such a great little dog. He fit right in with our family. My cat, Petri, absolutely LOVES him. They run around and wrestle all day. His favorite thing to do is lay under the blanket while we are on the couch, but when we go for a walk, he is going one speed the whole time. We couldn't have asked for a better dog. We love him to death! Thank you for helping us find the perfect family member.

Pebbles 

May 2012

We want to thank you for being such a professional and courteous organization. Most of all, we thank you for everything you do to find precious doxies a fur-ever home.  Pebbles had her TV debut Sunday morning at Buda. Bonnie with Austin's news channel ,YNN - Your News Now, (formerly News 8 Austin) interviewed our family. We told them about coming to the Wiener Races not only for the fun event, but also to adopt Pebbles from ATDR.You have matched us with a beautiful, sweet little girl. Pebbles is fitting in nicely with her brother, Chestnut, and our traveling lifestyle.

Once again, thanks to each of you for the role you played in matching us with a wonderful little girl. We can't say enough good things about All Texas Dachshund Rescue.

 Hugs from us and Wags from the doxies, Sherry, JC, Chestnut, and Pebbles

Maury 2012

Maury / Pippin

May 2012

Pippin weighs in at a whopping 7.5 pounds compared to Riley's 85 pounds. Amazing how gentle she is with him. When he is bouncing all around her, she knows exactely where he is and carefully places her feet so she does not step on him. Pippin does not want little dog toys, he plays with Riley's toys and it is just hilarious to watch him drag her big toys around.

 He loves to sit in my lap when I am doing computer work. In fact, he is in my lap right now messing with the mouse. When he wants up in my lap, he "loiters" around my feet and gives me this pitiful look...cracks me up....who has got "who" trained here?

 

Leia Success Story

Leia

April 2012

Just wanted to send an update on Leia.

I adopted her almost 1 year ago and she is doing great. Leia came to ATDR emaciated due to pancreatitis. A few months ago, I actually had to cut back on her food because she was a pound overweight!

She is definitely queen of the pack and chases the big dogs at the dog park. She has a wonderful time with her sisters Lizzie and Calamity!

Thanks for all that you do!

Here is a pic of me and my sis Obi-Wan.  Paw ya laters!

Jester

All of our family is in love with our "little brown dog", especially both of our granddaughters, ages 2 & 6. He has added such joy to our lives and our family. I don't give thanks for him without remembering the two of you and all you did to bring us this gift. Thank you. The work you do is amazing. We are one big success story.
I'm sure that Jester is forever grateful, as are we.


Woof,

Barney

BARNEY UPDATE!!! (aka Angus)

What a character Barney is!  He has settled in very well and loves to play with Chumly his older brother, who is incredibly patient with him.  He chews on Chumly all the time and Chumly doesn't seem to mind a bit.  We have to put him in 'time-out' occasionally (in the utility room where he can still see us through the gate) when he gets too rambunctious but he calms down quickly.  He and Darwin the cat get on well too and I think Darwin chases Barney as much as Barney chases him!  It is funny to see.  He has the odd 'accident' in the house but we are working on that.  He is a lovely little boy and we are really pleased with him.

 Jezzie

Jezabelle

September 2011: When we first saw Jezabelle on the website, we knew she was our dog. She was so shy when we met her, but we knew that with love and attention she would learn to love and trust us and become part of our family. In only a few weeks, she changed from a shy, scared dog who liked to hide under the coffee table to a happy, loving dog who followed us around the apartment, jumped on the bed and ran to greet us as soon as we got home. We've had so much fun teaching her how to sit, shake, speak and other tricks. She learns so fast! We've had Jezzie for almost a year now and we can't believe how much she has changed from that first time that we met her. Everyone who meets her is amazed by how cute and friendly she is and we feel so lucky that we found her and could finally give her a real, forever home!

January 2011:

 Dear good people at ATDR,
 
Attached is a photo of the adorable dachshund we adopted from your center back in October.  Her name is listed as "Belle" but we have since been calling her Bella.
Adoption date was October 12, 2010 and we are so happy to have her as part of our family. Our other Doxie, "Angie" , Bella's "big sister", and Bella get along beautifully.  Bella is always looking for Angie and wanting to be with her.  That's my husband John holding both the docies in front of our fireplace.
 
Thank you again for accepting us as parents for Bella. You help so many helpless, abused doxies, and we thank you for that.

Mitzie and Doe

Mitzi

May 2010:  When Mitzi was adopted, one of the members of her new family was having some health issues.  Within a few months the doctor noted what a difference having Mitzi in the home had made.  Mitzi's new companion, "Doe" had a great check up and had even gained 14 pounds; everyone agrees Mizi's companionship made all the difference!  We love hearing about the positive impact "our" doxies have in the lives of their forever families!

March 2010:  Trixie was adopted in the Fall of '09 & her new family recently adopted Remington from ATDR too!

Remington and Mattie (formerly known as Trixie) have fit in with new brothers and sisters quickly and easily.  Both are a joy but seem to share a special ATDR bond.  They like to sleep next to each other in bed and patrol the backyard from one end of the fence like sentrys.  Doug and I love and treasure them both.  You can fit six mini's on a recliner with room to spare.

March 2010:  Talk about your Happy Tail!  These four lucky ATDR doxies hit the jackpot when ALL of them were adopted by this wonderful couple in Sept '09.  Judith and Steven are VERY special to the ATDR family and we are so grateful to them for opening up their hearts and their home to these babies!

Dachsies are like potato chips, you can’t have just one.

It has been about 8 months now and I just wanted to get in touch with you about Elmo and Dash...
 
They are now Otis and Scooter and they are the BEST! I don't even know where to begin and I would need pages to tell you all the reasons we love them. So, I will just say thank you so much for allowing them to be part of our family. We are so lucky.  I've attached a great picture of them.

Hoggan

May 2009:  Here's a special note from an ATDR dachshund named Hoggan!

 I came to live in my new forever home in October 2005, after living in foster care for a year and a half.  I had a sister named Heidi Sue waiting for me.  She taught me about a lot of doggy things that I didn't know about.  What a great pal!  She went to puppy heaven in 2008.  I missed her a lot.  So, my mom and dad started looking for a new brother or sister.   In October 2008 they adopted a blonde (English Creme) girl named Poppy aka Popcorn.  Wow, what a beautiful girl and so nice!   But that wasn't all.... we went back to her foster home a few weeks later and mom and dad adopted another girl named Sadie.  She is a young puppy.  Poppy Jo and Sadie May knew each other from the breeders' home before they went to foster care. Sadie was pretty scared when she first got here, but now she loves to play.  I teach her the things that I was taught by Heidi Sue.  You would think that the family would be complete with three dachshunds, but not so.  In February 2009 we all went back to visit at Poppy and Sadie's foster home and mom and dad adopted another little girl.  Wow, three sisters!!!  We added Marley Jane to our family!  She and I are about the same age, but she can out play me.  She loves to come out and snoop with me.   I love being the only man of the house and I love all my new sisters too.  We are one big happy family, all thanks to Glenda and ATDR.  What a great lady!!!  That's my story.

Lulu's first snow

Lulu

January 2009: 

I've just seen my first snow! My mom, Dad, & sister, Chloe, are spending 3 weeks in Colorado. Even though it was only 13 degrees (and sunny!), my mom decided to go for a walk to take pictures. I didn't want my picture made, so I ran around so I would be just a blur. But mom fooled me and got a couple when I wasn't looking.

I have been doing sooooo good! I don't even remember anything before December 2007, when I came to my "forever" home. I am very happy and healthy. My sister, Chloe, has taught me how to play and we have a lot of fun! She has been gentle with me. At first I thought she was trying to fight me, but I soon learned that she doesn't have a mean bone in her body. We snuggle together sometimes, too.

Thank you for rescuing me from "that" situation and finding me a great home. I am so happy here!

Love,
Lulu

P.S. Oh! I'm attaching some pix taken today - see how great I look?

December 2008:  Ken and Barbie already have what they want for Christmas; a loving, forever home!  Their new mom reports they're doing great and have settled right in to their new home.  Ken and Barbie's extended family includes another ATDR dachshund, Jack!  Merry Christmas to all!

 Moochie, Baby & Sweet Pea

Sweet Pea
(Left to right, Moochie, Baby and Sweet Pea!) 

December 2008:  This update is long overdue!  Sweet Pea was adopted in early 2008 by an awesome couple with two dachshunds, Moochie and Baby.  Sweet Pea loves her new family... she gets along great with her doxie sisters & they travel the country with Mom & Dad in their huge RV!  The girls even get to go on frequent rides in the family golf cart!  This precious girl who was dumped in a kill shelter by a horrible breeder has found heaven on earth with this wonderful family.  Sweet Pea touched all of our hearts and we couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect home for her.

Abbie on Lucy's backAbbie on Lucy's back with Walter watching

Abbie (Formerly known as Glory)

February 2008:  Abbie is turning into quite a character.  Very much an individual.  She's still covering everybody with puppy kisses, and is the most affectionate.  At the same time, she is the most stubborn.  At "potty time" she doesn't run out the door like a house on fire as do the others.  Abbie always wants to be chased around the living room first.  She has certainly learned how to be a little diva from Sophie!  Abbie's favorite spot to sit and survey her kingdom is on "Mom's" back.  The view is much better up there, not to mention a higher security level!   
Hope you enjoy these pictures.
Thanks again!

January 2008:  Our sweet Mandy found the perfect home, living with her new Mom in a lovely Retirement community.  We're so happy to see this little family enjoying some quality time.  Welcome home Mandy!!

Prissy

Nickel (Formerly known as Prissy)

January 2008: Nickel came to our family on Nov. 11, 2007.  She loves everything and has two speeds - fast forward and snuggle.  She loves wrestling with her co-dog, Abbey and they are both known at the barkpark.  She has made us laugh so often.  Her funniest quirk is that she goes into the backyard and sits on the lawn furniture.  Picks different chairs each time and looks around at stuff.  My 83 year old mother who lives with us commented after the first week that Nickel fit right into the family like she had been here forever.  Thank you so much for our doxie.

November 2007:  Our little Bobby could not have found a better forever home!!  He was recently adopted by a wonderful family in the DFW area who just happen to be NASCAR fans, hence the nickname "Ricky Bobby".  Here's a picture of him guarding the door of the trailer on race day at the Texas Motor Speedway.  He spent the weekend at the track, meeting lots of other NASCAR fans (canine and human!) and had a great time.  We couldn't be happier for you Ricky Bobby!!!

Siggy (Formerly known as Siegfreid)

October 2007:  Hi guys!


Today was a fun day!  I dressed up for Halloween. I decided to be a devil because I always tell my Mom, "The devil made me do it!" when I am in trouble for doing something I shouldn't.  I won 2nd Place in the Petco Halloween Costume Contest.  I think I should have won first prize, but they gave it to this little thing dressed as a school girl in a plaid skirt with a tuile underskirting.  Come to think of it she was kind of cute!  I tried to kiss her!  But, I had the best jewelry!!!  Mom made me some beaded bracelets to wear on all of my feet--everyone was jealous.  I did share my bracelets with this perky white poodle dressed in a hawaiian outfit.  Boy, if all the dogs in Hawaii look like she did, I think I want to go there on vacation!

Roxie & Harley

Roxie (Formerly known as Samantha)

October 2007:  Hello ATDR,

I wanted to give you an update on Roxie (formerly Samantha).  Since she came into our home and hearts in April she has made our family complete.  She loves her brother Harley and he loves her.  They love to play and wrestle.  She is such a sneaky girl.  She will walk by Harley very casually and then snatch whatever toy he is playing with and run causing him to chase her which she loves.  She is such a blessing and we are enjoying every day with her.  We have taken her on several camping trips with us and that is her favorite time.  She gets to hunt in the woods for creatures.  She loves to run bunnies and squirrels.  Thank you so much for helping us find each other.  I truely love her and could not imagine my life without her.

Sincerely,
Dee Boarman

Brandy, Cooper & Roxie

Cooper (Formerly known as Copper)

October 2007:  We adopted Cooper, formerly Copper, in February of 2007 and what a little man he is!!  This incredibly sweet, adorable, hilarious cutie has turned his new sister's worlds upside down.  While he zooms through the house, sliding on the hardwoods and colliding into his big sis' Roxie (another sweet adoption!), he keeps his little sis', Brandy, rolling in chew toys that he hides everywhere!  This little guy had a rough start in life and I am still amazed that anyone could just stash him away in a laundry room and never give him the attention he craves or experience his incredible "hugs".  Yes, our little guy gives his new Mom and Dad hugs every day and sleeps deep under the covers every night with Brandy by his side.  Cooper is still working on manners around strangers and new dogs, but he has taken to our cat like he had been around feines all of his life.  Copper's new Dad is harnessing his speed to train him for next April's Buda Weiner Dog Races.

Thank you ATDR for connecting Cooper to our lives and allowing us to give him a forever home!

Redmon

'Lil Man (Formerly known as Redmon, he's the little guy on top)

May 2007:  'Lil Man "flew" into our lives on March 25, 2007 like a Texas tornado leaving all it's damage, debris (and fiberfill found in squeaky-toys!) in it's dust!  He fit right in with his new brothers, Casey, 9, and Max 14 mo's., his new dad, Page, and with his new mom, (me of course)  'lil man is a doxie that's so full of life, love and laughter.  He's hilarious!  He loves taking his snoozes on top of the picnic table while I'm out working in the garden - (perfect scenario :)  When he's not snoozing he's at my feet helping me pull weeds, running off with my garden gloves or maybe taking a dip in my small fish pond (wish I had my camera for that one).

I'm so grateful for y'all and thank you sooooo much for my gift of adoption.  I'm sending a picture.  It was at the end of the day/evening which was full of play and they joined me on the porch and slept till I said, "it's bedtime!"  Then , off to bed.  (under the covers, next to me, until the sandman comes.)
Thanks!!!!!!!!!!

Nicole with Sandy & Winnie

Sandy & Winnie

May 2007:  When Sandy and Winnie's new mom picked them up in Austin, her granddaughter Nicole insisted on riding inside the crate with them all the way back to Longview in NE Texas.  This is the sweetest photo we've seen in a long time.  Looks like a future rescuer in the making!  Sandy and Winnie have retired to a spacious spread in the country with a big family to give them lots & lots of love.  We couldn't be happier for them and are especially touched when an adopter gives a senior like Sandy a forever home.

Abby and Busy

Abby

April 2007:  Here's Abby playing with her sister Busy.  They get along good playing and they like to nap together; her new mom thinks Busy is just glad to have somebody that snores too.  They can make some noise when sleeping!  Abby gets plenty of exercise at her new home in the country and has trimmed down to 23 lbs.  She gives the resident hunting dog a run for his money retrieving sticks from the water, and they found out recently she's a Diving Doxie!!  When a stick goes underwater she dives down and grabs it!

Bridget

Bridget

April 2007:  Bridget is just doing beautifully and has totally "adopted" my husband, Dave, as her most important love.  She has learned to walk great on a leash and really enjoys her morning and afternoon walks.  We have been camping once now and she just did terrific.  She and our other new one (Hannah from CTDR) have really bonded and love to play and run together inside and outside in the yard.  We are so pleased and totally love this dog.  She now has her forever home and we are so glad to have found her and been able to provide her this home thanks to all of you and your organization.
Donna

Ruby

Ruby (formerly known as Zoe)

March 2007:  I just wanted to give you an update on Ruby.  We are all crazy about her and she has become a much beloved member of the family.  Yes she is rambunctious but her spurts of energy are brief, 10/15 minutes of intense play 3/4 times a day, followed by a nap.  She is very loving, loves to snuggle and is most definitely a lap dog.  She also shares her love with the whole family, thats how she has captured everyone's heart.  We are very grateful for your help in bringing us all together and just wanted to let you know that Ruby has definitely found her forever home.
Many many thanks,
Anne

Lucy and Walter

Walter (formerly known as Duster)

March 2007: In January, we adopted Lucy, our abused mixed lab, from a local animal shelter. Just a month later, we adopted Walter as a companion for Lucy since she had behavior issues and seemed to prefer other dogs to humans. Walter has truly "rescued" Lucy from the her untrusting behavior to a totally different dog who now happily comes when called and takes treats from my hand.  Walter's outgoing super friendly dachshund personality has demonstrated to Lucy that it's not only a good thing to let humans into your life, but it's also fun!  Judy

Finley

Finley

March 2007: Attached is a picture of Finley and his new best friend, Zoe. As you know, Zoe was grieving for her two friends Emmy and Shanny--she was lost without someone to care for. Since Finley came into our lives she is her old self again, happy, playful, and nurturing. Finley has such a sweet and loving spirit and he has been a delightful blessing to our home. The two of them play and explore together, and nestle into each other to sleep. Even my fussy toy poodle, Bitsy, loves Finley. He snuggles with me on his play breaks and is the absolute best TV watching buddy. Thank you so much for all the hard work you do to bring these precious furbabies and their adoptive families together!  Nancy

Gigi Gigi (formerly known as Virginia)

February 2007: Here in our home, Gigi has lots of names.... Gigi Squeegie, Squeegy-weegie, Gigi-weegie and all sorts of silly variations.  Miss Gigi is a wonderful, beloved family member.  She and our other dachshund, Missy (aged 9) get along like sisters.  They even take turns claiming the best "snuggle" spot next to me when we go to bed at night.  Thank you for bringing this wonderful girl to us.  And extra-special thanks to her foster mother, Lorena.  Regards, Becky and Jeff

Danny Danny

January 2007:  Danny and Samson are getting along so great! I got Danny because Samson is 11 years old and I thought he was slowing done a bit, and thought that a younger dog would help him keep the puppy in him. Danny is doing just that! He is the sweetest dog and we love him to death! I think Samson would be heartbroken if he wasn't here. They are my two bookends because over the past several months they have grown to love each other, fight with each other, kiss and nurture each other, eat with each other and play with each other ....

Hush Puppy

Hushpuppy

December 2006: Here's Hush Puppy and his new sisters, Elizabeth (Dizzy Lizzie) and Daphne (Daffy Daphne) pooped out after a day of playing in their huge backyard. They are all so very happy here and thriving. Hush is a great dog. He is trained, healthy as far as we know and friendly to all. The girls have started using the doggie door at only 4 months old! We are very proud of them all. Thank you again for your help. ~ Reba

Molly Molly

July 31, 2006: It's been a little more than a week since little Molly became a part of our family, and words can't describe how much joy she has brought to our house. Frankie, my other Doxie, and she have become the best of friends. They play with their toys together, chase each other around, and every night, when they go to bed, they both snuggle up together on the same bed. Frankie has made a total 180, he used to be very lonely, but now because of Molly, his tail is wagging non-stop and he is really happy.

It took Molly a day or two to get used to her surroundings, but now she is running around the house like she owns the place. She is the cutest little dog, and we love her so much! Thanks for everything that you and all the volunteers of All Texas Dachshund Rescue have done for us! ~ Kristina

 

Milo Milo

Ever since we got Milo I have been very happy! I love to play with Milo. When we go to sleep, he loves to cuddle. He wakes me up in the morning to make sure I am ready for school on time. I have wanted a dog for so long and now that we have Milo, I never want to let him out of my sight! I wouldn’t give him up for anything, he is my baby and I love him sooooooo much! ~ Lizzie

Gypsy Gypsy

I just wanted to let you know how Gypsy is doing. She is the sweetest dog and has jumped right into our little canine family. We had company this holiday weekend, and she went from person to person to get some extra loving. She has starting playing with the other dogs and the numerous dog toys that litter our house.

Thank you so much for allowing us to adopt her. She has stolen our hearts. It saddens us to think what the poor baby has been through, but we plan on spoiling her and making her future as happy as possible.
Thanks again, ~ Deborah & David

Bennett Bennett

Bennett came to his foster family at the early age of two weeks from a puppy mill as the only surviving puppy of his litter. It took about 2 seconds for them to realize he would never be leaving.  Bennett is deaf, but he lives the life of any normal puppy and is learning signs (sign language) to communicate. There is no lack of communication when he wants or needs something. Never feel sorry for him being deaf… he lives a full happy Dachshund life! Bennett is very smart. He learned the dog door quickly. He was so small when he learned it that we had to put a stepping-stone up for him to get in and out. He already knows 3 different signs and is learning more!
