Thanks to Our Supporters for a Fabulous 2013!
As 2013 was another busy year for our volunteers, and we're constantly reminded how lucky we are to have your generous support.
As you know, it's all about the dachshunds! DFW Dachshund Rescue placed 33 dachshunds in loving forever homes in 2013. An additional 15 dachshunds are currently receiving plenty of love and attention in their foster homes as they await their perfect forever families. Fourteen of our dachshunds went to previous adopters who returned to us when it was time to add to their families. We think this speaks volumes for the desirability of the dachshunds in our program.
We spent over $54,000 on veterinary work in 2013. In addition to routine care like immunizations, spay/neutering, dental cleanings and microchipping, we treated several dogs for heartworms. We also had several dachshunds that required extensive veterinary care, including a dog with pyometra, a hernia and extensive dental issues, several dogs with severe dermatological issues, and another dog that required treatment and physical therapy for major orthopedic injuries after being hit by a car. This sweet dachshund endeared herself to everyone she met, and she is being adopted by one of her attending veterinarians. We're so pleased that she was able to ring in the New Year with her new forever home.
We were able to engage the services of Mary Swindell and Anne O'Neill, two excellent dog trainers, to provide education to our volunteers and also to provide training for specific foster dogs. The trainers were also able to assist several adopters overcome challenges they'd encountered while integrating their newly adopted dachshunds into their homes. We also orchestrated several phone consultations to help local dachshund owners resolve behavioral problems and prevent them from surrendering their dachshunds to rescue.
A number of our adopted dogs have been active in dog performance sports. Benz completed numerous obedience titles, Finnegan completed numerous agility titles and Lucas earned his canine good citizen title (CGC). Dachshunds particularly enjoy earthdog trials, which tests their ability to follow the scent of underground quarry. Nicolas and Toby earned their junior earthdog titles, and Tyke earned both junior and senior earthdog titles.
Once again we had a booth at Oak Cliff Earth Day, we held several Bath-a-Thons at The Nosey Dog, and had a booth at Arlington's Dog Days of Summer. We love getting out to meet fellow dachshund lovers, and our adoptive dachshunds love getting out to meet their adoring public!
Our sixth annual Donation Matching Campaign exceeded all expectations and we raised over $43,000 for our rescue dachshunds. We are so fortunate and grateful to have such generous supporters. We plan to hold the Donation Matching Campaign again in 2014. Please contact us if you would like to be a sponsor.
DFW Dachshund Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, funded solely through donations, adoption fees, affiliate revenue, and proceeds from our annual calendar sales. Every dollar goes to help the rescued dachshunds in our program. Your ongoing support makes it possible for us to continue helping those dogs in need. Thank you for being a friend to the dachshunds!
Mackie Passes Therapy Dog Test
DFW Dachshund Rescue is delighted to announce that Mackie, adopted from the DFW Dachshund Rescue Foundation in July of 2013, passed the
therapy dog test for Pet Partners (formerly the Delta Society) on Saturday, August 10th!
He and his owner Robin will be able to visit clients in various care and educational facilities around the DFW area and bring the love and companionship of a therapy dog into the lives of people in need. Mackie is the first DFW Dachshund Rescue dog to take and pass the therapy dog test. We are very proud of Mackie and Robin!

The Long and Short of It: Wirehair Dachshunds
When you come to DFW Dachshund Rescue's site, chances are you're already familiar with the lovable, sometimes stubborn dachshund or "wiener dog," but we've found that many are unfamiliar with the many sizes and types of this unique breed. Most often we receive shorthairs and longhairs, in both standard (18 - 30 lbs.) and mini sizes (6 - 15 lbs.), but on occasion we receive the less common wirehair dachshund.
You may be asking yourself, "Wait, is that a Terrier or the popular Yorkie?" when in actuality the wirehair dachshund is one component of the dachshund breed recognized by the American Kennel Club. These little dogs are intelligent, friendly and outgoing with many wirehair owners reporting they tend to be little "clowns" and a little mischievous at times - to which we say, aren't they all!
Take a few minutes to review some little-known facts about wirehairs, and consider adding one of these proud, protective pups to your life.
They have distinctive facial furnishings with a beard and eyebrows - often resembling an old man!
The hair on their ears is shorter than on the body.
Grooming needs are actually minor for the wire-haired, with weekly brushing encouraged.
If you're interested in adopting a wirehair or one of our other dogs, check out our
Article written by Sydney Holt.
Our Currently Adoptable Dachshunds
Dachshund Rescue "Blotter" for January
We've continued to receive lots of favorable comments about our "Rescue Blotter", similar to a "Police Blotter", summarizing the types of requests for assistance we receive. It helps to illustrate the sorts of calls we get, the reasons why people surrender their dogs, and the uphill battle that all shelters and rescues face every single day. In 2013, we received 707 requests for help with dachshunds. This is an average of 59 requests for help every month. We are happy to report that this is a continued reduction in calls. We received about 100 less calls for help in 2013 than we did in 2012. Hopefully, we will continue to see a slow, but steady decline in calls this year for help with dachshunds. At this point, however, that is still a lot of dachshunds that need help.
We're a small organization, staffed solely by volunteers and we do the best we can with our limited resources.
We wish we could help everyone who contacts us, but sadly, we are usually "full" and can only help a fraction of those who request our assistance.
We do what we can, however, and always refer callers to other groups when we are full, or suggest other options such as training for behavioral issues, or low cost veterinary services for those with limited financial resources.
When Good Samaritans contact us about stray and abandoned dachshunds they have taken in, we always encourage them to try to place those dogs themselves, and are happy to provide information on how to find good homes.
Until we can eliminate puppy mills and backyard breeders, unfortunately, there will always be more dogs in need than there are available spaces in any rescue organization.
Please help - encourage others to spay and neuter their pets! For other ways to help us, please refer to our
How You Can Help page.
Summary: January 2014
Requests for placement assistance: 41 dogs
Callers requesting advice only: 0
Adoptions this month: 2 dogs
Dachshunds accepted into rescue: 2 dogs
Some of the reasons given for requesting assistance:
~ A woman contacted us about one dachshund and two dachshund mixes that she needed to get rid of because she was getting divorced. As we always do, we asked first where the dogs came from originally. Two of her dogs came from one of the dachshund rescue programs located in Texas; and we promptly reminded her that the adoption contract required that she return the dogs to the original rescue program. We connected her with the director, and also notified two other volunteers to insure that the dogs were returned safely to this rescue program. It is critical for anyone doing intake to ALWAYS, ALWAYS ask where the dogs came from originally. In several cases this past year we were able to see dogs safely returned to the responsible breeder or responsible rescue group. If we had not asked where the dogs came from that would not have happened.
~ A man contacted us about getting rid of his female dachshund due to being mistreated by the adult son who lived with him. When we contacted him, he admitted the dog was fearful of all men and that was the real reason for getting rid of the dog. We explained that we could not accept a dog into rescue whose temperament would not allow for successful adjustment to a new home.
~ A woman asked for help with a dachshund that she rescued from a friend. After discussion about the dog, we offered to take the dog into rescue and made an appointment. She then called back and canceled the appointment, as she found a home for the dog with a neighbor.
~ Sadly, a number of individuals contacted us about surrendering elderly dachshunds that they no longer wanted, because the dog was inconvenient now that it was older. We explained that we were not a sanctuary program, and could not take in dogs whose ages would keep them from ever being re-homed. We reviewed the limited options available in these situations.
~ Several people contacted us about their dachshunds who had disappeared, and we agreed to keep the pictures and contact information on hand. We hope the dogs eventually are reunited with their owners.
~ A woman contacted us about taking in a dachshund they had rescued that now was becoming aggressive towards their child. We explained that due to liability issues, we were unable to take in a dachshund with aggressive behaviors. We reviewed the limited options available in these types of situations.
~ A elderly man had to enter assistive living and could no longer care for his dachshund. We were full, but made referrals.
~ A man found a longhair male dachshund in a parking garage. We offered to take the dog, but another rescue group had already made an appointment to do so. One day later, the owner was located and hopefully the rescue group did the right thing and returned the dog to its rightful owner.
~ A couple found a dachshund puppy and then the puppy began to display aggressive behaviors. They wanted us to take the dog into our rescue program. We explained that due to liability reasons, we could not accept dogs with aggressive behaviors. We reviewed the limited options available in such situations.
~ A man contacted us about a dachshund that had bitten his grandchild. He wanted us to take the dog into our rescue program. We explained that due to liability reasons, we could not accept dogs with aggressive behaviors. We reviewed the limited options available in such situations.
~ A shelter contacted us about a longhair male dachshund in need of rescue. We offered to take him into our program. He was adopted before we could pick him up. We are happy he has a new home as that is the goal for all adoptable dachshunds.
~ A woman with health issues contacted us about taking in her two 11 year old dachshunds. We explained that we were not a sanctuary for dogs whose age precluded their ever being adopted and reviewed the limited options available in such situations.
~ A woman contacted us about a longhair dachshund she thought was advertised on Craigs List. When we looked at the ad more closely, it was an ad placed by Humane Society of North Texas to encourage adoption of this dog. We explained to the woman that this dog was already in the care of a rescue agency and did not need our assistance.
~ A woman called us about a dachshund belonging to an elderly friend who could no longer care for the dog. After reviewing pictures, the dogs history and having a temperament evaluation, we offered to take the dog into rescue. He was accepted into our program and is now receiving needed vet work.
~ A woman found a dachshund in a parking lot. The microchip traced to one owner; who said he had given the dog to someone else and no longer wanted the dog. The second owner could not be located, and we were full so we referred the woman to other dachshund rescue groups.
~ A woman contacted us about taking in her sons young female dachshund puppy. When we asked for pictures, we discovered the dog was actually a chiweenie. We provided her a list of groups that took in mixed breed dogs.
~ A shelter contacted us about a senior dachshund needing rescue help. We explained that we do not take senior dogs because their age virtually always precludes their being adopted; and we are not a sanctuary program. Luckily, an out of state dachshund rescue program tagged the dog and will be transporting it to one of their foster homes.
~ A shelter contacted us about a male dachshund that had been impounded as a stray. He was very fearful and had bitten two employees already. We explained that due to liability issues we could not accept nor rehome a dog with aggressive issues. We reviewed the limited options available for such a dog.
~ A shelter contacted us about a young male dachshund that was abandoned due to the owners being too busy for their dog. We had an opening and accepted this dog into our program.
~ Shelters called about dachshunds in their care, hoping to get them into breed rescue programs where they have a better chance of being adopted to an excellent home.
~ People contacted us because they were moving and could not take their dachshunds. This is another scenario we hear over and over again. People just do not think ahead when it comes to make a long-term commitment for their dogs. We were full, but made referrals.
~ A shelter contacted us about a 2-year-old red smooth male dachshund in need of rescue. He was friendly with people and other dogs. We were able to accept this dog into our program.
~ A woman contacted us and said she had found two stray dachshunds. We asked her for pictures of the dogs, and she sent the pictures. We were willing to consider taking the dogs, but then she insisted that the dogs be fostered and adopted together. When we explained that we did not permit foster homes to have two foster dogs and that it was highly likely that the dogs would be adopted together, she decided to check with other rescue groups. We gave her a referral list as well as an article on how to place the dogs herself.
~ A shelter contacted us about an 8-month-old puppy that they took in from a breeder. The dog was fearful and snippy and hid his head whenever someone tried to interact with him. The shelter personnel were sure he had been abused. Sadly, the more likely reality is that the dog was neglected and has a temperamentally fearful nature. Those factors make it highly likely he will be a bite risk down the road and would not be able to be re-homed. We declined the dog, due to the aggressive risk.
~ Several family members contacted us about taking in dachshunds belonging to elderly family members. Sadly, these elderly individuals had taken on young dogs when they were not equipped to provide the care for the dog. We wish people would think honestly about their capabilities before taking on a young dog. We were full, but made referrals.
~ Various shelters and individuals contacted us to surrender dachshund mix and other types of mixed breed dogs; we explained that we only accept purebred dachshunds, and referred them to other rescue organizations.
Dear Dachshund Admirers:
You may remember me from a few years ago, when I was featured on the DFW Dachshund Rescue website.
The rescue volunteers and vet staff helped me overcome a number of medical challenges, including a broken jaw and treatment for heartworms.
I was adopted last summer by a wonderful couple and have been happily settled in my new home for quite some time.
Now that life is great for me, I have been thinking about ways to give back to those who helped me so much.
One day, my new family was reading the paper and I saw something called an "advice column" for humans.
I thought to myself, "that's it! I'll write my own advice column for DFW Dachshund Rescue and call it 'Dear Dickens'."
Just like the people who write the human advice columns, I'll call upon different dog experts if I can't answer the whole question by myself.
The volunteers thought it was a great idea, so this will be a regular feature on the website.
I hope you will
write to me if you have questions and I will do my best to answer them.
Thank you for writing this column. I always
find helpful and interesting information here.
I have a question for you. Rescue groups ask
a lot of questions to potential adopters; but
I wondered if it is okay for me to ask questions
of the rescue group before I adopt from them.
While some of my friends have adopted dogs
from groups and it has been a good experience;
others have encountered problems. I want to
be more informed before I decide to adopt
from a particular group. Is it really okay
to ask questions?
Questioning Quinda in Quebec
Dear Questioning Quinda,
You definitely should ask questions of a rescue
group before you decide to adopt from them. You should include questions about a dog you are interested in, and also basic information about the operating and management policies of the group. A good rescue group will not hesitate to answer your questions.
Here are some questions I would encourage you to ask:
1. Do you evaluate dogs for temperament before listing
them for adoption to the general public? Would you
knowingly place a people-aggressive or dog-aggressive dog in an adoptive home? Do you have an
experienced dog trainer that works with or advises
2. How many foster homes does your group have? Does
your group have a limit on the number of foster dogs
that can be in one home? (Note from Dickens: If there are too many dogs in a foster home, then the
dogs are getting food and shelter, but not the necessary training and socialization to be ready for a permanent home)
3. What health care has the dog received? At minimum, the dog should be altered, vaccinated,
tested for heartworms (treated if needed), tested and
treated for parasites and microchipped. The dog
should also have been treated for any infections or
injuries. With dachshunds, a dental cleaning for
adult dogs is a real bonus. Do ask the group if they provide dental cleanings for their foster dogs.
Ask if you can speak to the vet clinic that has
done the vet work for the dog you are interested in
adopting. A good rescue group will happily provide you with the name and phone number of their vet clinic. Ask if you will be provided with an actual copy of the vet records for the dog and not just a list of the vaccinations that the dog has received.
4. Do you allow a trial visit period? Dogs do not always display their true personality in just a few days. A group that allows a 1 to 2 week trial visit will give you a better opportunity to evaluate a dog and see if it is the right match for your home.
5. Ask to see a copy of their adoption contract, so you will understand fully what will be required of you
if you adopt from the group. If there are any stipulations in the contract that you do not think you can abide by, then perhaps this is not the right rescue group for you.
Do be sure to read through website of the rescue group first, as you may find answers to some of your questions there. Then you will know what additional questions you would like to ask. A good rescue group will not hesitate to answer your questions, and they will do so willingly. There are a number of good rescue groups out there, and it is worth taking the time to research and ask questions before deciding to adopt from a particular group. A good rescue group will continue to be a useful resource for you, even after the adoption of your dog. I hope this information will help you make an informed decision when you are looking for your new forever companion.
Well, my family is busy planning a camping trip and
I am going to see where they plan on taking me and
my doggie siblings! Goodbye for now.

Annual United Way Donations can be Directed to DFW Dachshund Rescue
Most of us are familiar with the annual United Way campaigns organized by many employers, but did you know that you can direct your United Way donation to benefit DFW Dachshund Rescue?
Most companies allow you to designate 501(c)(3) organizations of your choice to receive your United Way donations.
Check your employer's United Way sign-up process for requirements, and
or call us at 817-481-9272,
for the information needed to "write in" DFW Dachshund Rescue.
We've already begun receiving United Way directed donations from several companies, so you can rest assured that the process does work.
What a wonderful way to help the dachshunds all year long! Thank you to those who are participating already - we are grateful for your support!
Selecting a Reputable Rescue Organization
Thank you for considering the adoption of a homeless dachshund. As you've no doubt seen, there are many more dogs than there are available homes, and there are many shelter and rescue organizations from which to choose your new family companion. Petfinder is an umbrella website that advertises adoptable animals from a number of different city shelters, private shelters, rescue organizations, and individuals, each serving their own target adoptive audience. Each of these groups has their own policies, procedures and requirements.
If you choose to adopt a dog from a rescue organization such as ours, it's important to learn as much as possible about the organization and its policies. The better the rescue organization, the better the chances you will adopt a companion that truly fits your family and lifestyle.
We have prepared an excellent article detailing a number of things to consider when selecting a rescue organization. Don't be afraid to ask questions about a rescue's policies and procedures. If the organization's representatives are defensive, rude, or avoid providing details, you should consider adopting from a different organization.

Be a Great Dog Owner!
1. Clean up after your pet! Whenever you go out for a walk or go to the park, be sure you go with a plastic bag. No one wants to step in the poop that your dog left behind. Please "scoop the poop" and this way your dog will be welcome out in public.
2. Don't add to the animal population - please be sure your dog is spayed or neutered. There are already more dogs on the planet than there are possible homes - we don't need more.
3. Feed a quality dog food. Pet foods purchased in the local grocery store chains are generally full of grains, by-products and other undesirable ingredients. Feed a premium dog food; it pays off in the long run with a healthier dog. And healthier dogs have less trips to the vet!
4. Find a job for your dog. All dogs were initially bred to do something, and most dogs are "chronically under-employed".
Dogs who are bored tend to get themselves in trouble. Take a basic obedience class with your dog for starters and then go from there. Perhaps you can teach your dog some tricks or pursue agility training or therapy dog work or any number of interesting activities. A dog with a purpose is a happy dog.
5. Use positive training methods. In today's dog training world, choke collars, shock collars and other punishment based methods are just not appropriate. We know more about dogs these days, and there are lots of positive training options out there.
Clicker based training is very effective and there are lots of articles about this out on the internet.
6. Volunteer to help with an animal rescue or welfare organization, or donate to support one of those groups. These organizations give many dogs a "second chance" at life and they need your support.

Who We Are
The Dallas-Fort Worth Dachshund Rescue Foundation
is a well-established organization with a history of providing dachshund related education and service to the DFW community.
If you are looking to adopt or purchase a dachshund, have dachshund related training or behavior questions, or need to place your dachshund, we may be able to assist you.
If not, we will make every effort to find you someone who can.
Dachshunds in our program are fully vetted before adoption. This includes being altered, receiving all needed immunizations, having a dental cleaning and being microchipped.
Any other medical issues the dog has will also be addressed before being adopted.
Our dachshunds are placed in foster homes while they undergo rehabilitation and await adoption.
This allows us to better evaluate the personalities of each dog, which provides a better match for potential adopters.
While in their foster homes, the dachshunds are socialized, given plenty of love and praise, and some begin to pick up basic housetraining skills and obedience.
How You Can Help
If you or someone you know are looking to acquire a companion dachshund, please view our
list of available dachshunds. Information on how to go about adopting can be found in each dog's detailed listing, and in the next section, "Adopting A Friend."
Even if you are not looking for a companion dachshund, you can still be one of our Guardian Angels.
We are a 501(c)(3) organization, funded solely through gifts, donations and adoption fees and staffed entirely by volunteers.
All donations are tax deductible. Every dollar received goes directly towards the care of our rescue dachshunds.
Your support makes it possible for us to continue helping those dogs in need.
Donations may be sent to:
Dallas-Fort Worth Dachshund Rescue Foundation
P.O. Box 1892
Colleyville, TX 76034
Donations may also be made via Paypal:
Some companies have matching gift programs that allow individual donations to go even farther. Ask your employer if this type of program is available to you.

Adopting a Friend
If you are interested in adopting one of the dachshunds in our rescue program, please contact us for an application.
It will be sent out to you via postal mail, as it is not available online. Once your application has been received, we will check your vet references, and schedule a home visit.
We are a private organization that fosters our dogs in individual homes. We do not have a kennel or a public facility of any type.
We do not schedule visits with dogs until an adopter's application has been approved.
