Please complete this application in order to begin the adoption process. All applications must be approved prior to placement. It is very important that you answer all the questions honestly so that we can place a dog in your home that will become a permanent family member. Some dachshunds we rescue are great with kids, some are better with just adults. Some do well outside, others do not. Your honest answers will help us find a dog that is good for your circumstances. Please contact us via e-mail or call (844)703-6943 and leave a message if you have any questions.
This application is quite extensive and in-depth; however, do not let this dissuade you from completing it and returning it to us!
Note that there is an adoption fee that includes all of the following:
All of the above will be taken care of prior to adoption. You should, however, still consider taking the dog to your veterinarian upon adoption.
We genuinely care about the welfare of all dachshunds; therefore, it is standard procedure to do a home check as part of the application process prior to placing a dachshund in a new home.
Adopting a rescued dog is sometimes quite different than bringing home a brand new puppy. Sometimes our rescued dogs come from great homes where they have received lots of TLC, but for one reason or another, the family cannot keep them. Sometimes the dog has been a stray for some time, been in a shelter, or not been in the best of homes. We do a temperament check on all of our rescue dogs, and will not adopt out an aggressive dog. There are some dogs that have what can best be described as personality quirks due to their history. We try to do our best to work through trust issues with the dogs rather than euthanize them. When you adopt a rescued dog, there will be a period of adjustment for both human and pet. Lots of understanding, quiet time, and bonding with one or two family members. We will be able to help you with specifics at the time of adoption, but do keep in mind that adopting a rescued dog can be challenging. We hope to hear from you soon and thank you for choosing adoption!
