Featured Foster Dog


Name: Schotz

Age:     7 1/2 years old          

Howdy! My name is Schotz Nagger. I am kind of shy but my foster mom said I had to write my story for some good people to read so I can get a new forever home. She is going to help me share who I am.  Usually I let brother do my talking for me but foster mom says I can learn to speak for myself.

My foster mom thinks I’m beautiful because I’m almost solid black. I have dark eyes and I don’t have a lot to say with my mouth but I look at her and talk to her with my eyes.  I think she and I have mental telepathy going on.

I’m kind of a big guy weighing in at about 23 pounds, but my foster mom has promised me that I can get to slim down now and that’s OK with me because it’ll make it easier for me to get in her lap. And I like those moments when I get to be in her lap. Especially when there’s a thunderstorm and she holds me tight.

I enjoy my new foster siblings but I love my brother.  I like the fact that I can have my very own kennel with a nice soft bed and I willingly go in there to sleep and eat. Maybe one day when I have my forever home I’ll have new pawrents to sleep with.  

I like going outside and I think the water in the water pan on the patio is the best water I ever had. And I keep myself very well hydrated.  But that’s OK because I’m very good at taking care of my business outside too. I actually go to the door and ask out.

I’m actually learning to love my foster home especially because there’s a little person in the house. I never had a child to play with. But I love the six-year-old that lives here.

What is DDRTX?

Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas is an all-volunteer group in the heart of Texas that is dedicated to the health, welfare, and happiness of our dachshund friends. We are based in Central and South Central Texas and have volunteers in many parts of Texas. We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. As such, we must rely heavily on donations and contributions, which are a necessity in order to continue to be able to pay the costs of veterinary care and other necessary expenses for each of our dachshunds. Diamond Dachshund has rescued, rehabilitated and placed from 100 to 200 dachshunds each year since our incorporation in 2003. We strive to find the right home for each dog's individual personality and needs so that the placement is permanent and both the dogs and the families who adopt them are equally happy.
