Frequently Asked Questions

Please adopt me

Where do rescue dogs come from?

The two main sources for rescue dogs are the county animal shelters and private individuals who can no longer provide for the animal.

How long do Dachshunds live?

Dachshunds boast a long life span. It is not uncommon for them to live in excess of 16 years.

Will my Dachshund have back problems?

They tend to be more prone to back problems due to their length. A majority of the problems can be avoided by keeping the dog’s weight in check and providing plenty of exercise.

Is this the breed for me?

Research the breed prior to making a decision. Although they are wonderful companions and pets they can be stubborn and "self-willed." If you need to be in control and have a low threshold of frustration this may not be the dog for you.
