If you have adopted a dachshund that was listed on The Dachshund Rescue Web Page, especially a senior dachshund (one age 10 or more at the time of adoption), post your story here to share it with others!
Make your story as long or as short as you would like, but please, include the animal's age at the time of adoption somewhere in your story. You can also upload one or more pictures at the bottom of the form.
I ask only that if you submit your story, please consider making a donation to Dachshund Rescue, to help provide funds to help other dachshunds who have not yet been as lucky as your dachshund has been. But, it's not a requirement. You've already rescued a dachshund and for me, the knowledge that this website was able to help bring you together, is enough.

I adopted Arlo about a year and a half ago. The vet's estimate was that he was about 3 1/2 years old. He came knowing very little.
We adopted our little Andy, long hair mini, five years ago. Andy was four months old. At that time we had Prince, a 116 pound Golden/Chow. Andy and Prince were soon very bonded.
We have three doxies. All of them hav been rescued.
She is my first pet. At first, I was a little overwhelmed because, she had quite a few medical issues since she hadn't been to the vet for several years.
We picked up our little Oscar yesterday and he is getting settled in. I feel so bad for him after all he as been thru. But I promised him a safe and loving home.
