Do you know a little dog with a deep bark (fools people all the time), a dog who rarely takes orders, but responds to requests made nicely (well, some of the time), and uses all passages and rooms like a racetrack?
If you said a Dachshund, aka a Dachsi, aka the Teckle, you are absolutely right!

Dachshund Rescue of North America (DRNA) didn’t know much about Paisley’s background when they took her in. A blind, long-haired Doxie, Paisley had been shifted from her original owner to relatives who tried to have her euthanized. They told a vet that she had a heart condition and that they couldn’t deal with her.

Spencer, a beautiful little Doxie, came into Dachshund Rescue of North America from a shelter. He was turned in by a young man who said he had landlord issues and that he had gotten Spencer from another person. So, though they didn’t have much information on Spencer’s past, the shelter staff could see he was a very friendly boy. They called Susie, the area Dachshund rescue volunteer, and she picked him up within two hours of his being admitted to the shelter.

Kopper is a special needs Dachshund who, despite his challenges, is a happy, loving boy.
Susie, a regional representative for Dachshund Rescue of North America, says Kopper is adoptable, but would need a special home. After some kind of accident in his original home, the owners turned him in to rescue because they could not deal with his medical problems and needs.

Susie has been a member of Dachshund Rescue of North America since 1999. Currently she is the senior rep for North Carolina as well as a leader and mentor for newer volunteers. Given her experience, Susie is well aware of the problems caused by so-called backyard breeders. So, when she took in Joy-Ci, a double dappled Doxie, as a foster, she was not surprised that the little girl was blind and partially deaf. Dappled Doxies, as with some other breeds, look like they have been splattered with paint. Joy-Ci is a mix of white, black, brown, and grey.

Abby and Dutch have been planning the new house, new focus on jobs and their marriage for a while now. It got derailed when the venue burned down and although Abby and Dutch were both tempted to elope, Abby’s sister Cat has invested so much time and money in the wedding, they feel they just can’t. Now Cat’s gone all out and found a new venue. She’s also gone round the bend in details. She’s invited everyone on Abby’s cell contact list. Nice for us to see old characters again, but Abby’s a little overwhelmed.

One evening my parents came home and called me to come outside to show me something, they were very excited. They had brought home a Dachshund mix puppy. I loved her from that first moment. I remember the first night she was scared and hovered in a corner outside, but it didn’t take long before we became the best of friends.

Trooper was rescued from a puppy mill where he was one of hundreds of dogs in crowded, unclean conditions. Sadly, his owner, though his heart was in the right place, simply couldn’t follow through on providing Trooper a forever home.

The Long and Short Of Dachshund Ownership

I love wiener dogs, especially the longhaired variety. As a kid, I’d always wanted a Doberman, but that all changed when my mum brought home a longhaired Dachshund puppy when I was 12 years old. Over the last 30 years, there’s only been one kind of dog in my life. I suppose I put my love of these little dogs down to their personalities. They’re tough, funny, conniving and far too clever for their own good.
