Sponsor a DogDo you have your own dogs or aren’t in the position to adopt right now but would still love to help? Help us continue to save more dogs with your sponsorship donation today.
Do you have room in your heart and home for a homeless Dachshund? We need more foster homes to provide a loving, stable environment for dachshunds in need. DDRTX takes care of the vet bills and the foster provides room, food, and a family home for the needy dog until the dog is adopted to a carefully screened adoptive home. Foster homes pass the same requirements as our adopters, so fill out a Foster application today. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Donate to DDRTX as a Gift to Someone!
You can donate to Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas in honor of someone else! It could be for a birthday, anniversary, memorial or any occasion. We will send a customized gift card to your special someone. Your donation will help take care of our beloved doxies!
During the coronavirus pandemic, dachshund rescue can't stop...they still need us as much as any other time and we pledge to be there for them.
During this time, DDRTX adopted out many dogs to wonderful families. But we also took in many injured doxies. Some are suffering from extensive medical issues.
Now is a great time to give back and help our organization so we can continue to save lives and make families feel whole during this difficult time.

Featured Foster Dog
Age: 8 years (est)
KNOWN ALIASES: LITTLE DONNY, LD, DONNY
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: HANDSOME RED CHIWEENIE
ALLEGED CRIME(S): BEING TOO CUTE, A REAL PLEASURE TO BE AROUND, THE GOODEST BOY!
OBSERVED BEHAVIOR(S): VERY TIMID AT FIRST AND THEN BLOSSOMS INTO AN EXTREMELY GOOD BOY, LOVES A GOOD NAP, FOLLOWS HIS FURRY FRIEND'S LEAD, WOULD PREFER TO BE WITH/NEAR HIS HUMAN AT ALL TIMES, PREFERS TO GO OUTSIDE FOR HIS BUSINESS, GETTING BETTER AND BETTER ON A LEASH, HAS A HEALTHY APPETITE, ENJOYS BELLY AND EAR RUBS, WOULD RATHER SLEEP WITH HIS PERSON, RESPONDS WELL TO POSITIVE REENFORCEMENT, A GOOD LEARNER, SMILES WHEN HE SLEEPS, LOVES ON HIS HUMAN MORE AND MORE AS HE GAINS CONFIDENCE IN HIS SITUATION
RECOMMENDED SENTENCE: ADOPTION! FILL THAT PAPERWORK OUT!
Little Donny would probably prefer a quieter environment. He does well with other dogs and adults although he prefers minding his own beeswax, uncertain about other animals and children. LD currently chows on Taste of the Wild Pacific stream and various snacks (cheese, unseasoned meats, coconut, etc.). Donny doesn't care for loud bangs or rushing vehicles so having his own yard may be better, but will do just fine if he can't have that. Donatello is a very sweet boy, fill out that adoption paperwork and schedule a meet today!
Donatello did test positive for tick born disease but has been on medication. He will always test positive for it but may never have any issues with it. The vet has cleared him for adoption. Put your application in today!

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.
