BIO: Lady asks, "Why doesn't anyone want me?"

Who doesn’t love a frosty face?! Lady was dumped at a shelter in East Tennessee when her owner went into a nursing home, and no one in the family would take her. She is fine with other small dogs but prefers to be an only dog, but you must be a strong pack leader, as she was allowed to run the house when she was with her old owner.

Lady does take a bit to warm up to strangers. She was scared to death when she came to us, but after she had time to decompress, she became a happy, lovely girl. Lady loves sleeping in her fluffy, calming bed but would prefer to be with you in your bed. She also loves to share the recliner for a nap or to catch the latest movie. This little lady will even play a bit if you have another small dog, but mostly, she wants to keep your lap warm. But first, you must give her time to learn that you are okay and she is safe.

Lady doesn’t like the rain or snow, so a puppy pad would be best for those days when she cannot go outside.

Our must-haves for sweet Lady include:

A fenced yard
Someone who is home most of the time
Another adult, small dog for her to pal around with
No apartments or high-rises, as she will bark at strange noises

If you think you want to give this sweet, beautiful girl her forever home, please complete our online adoption application. We will contact you after we call your vet.

============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============

AADR does not recommend dachshunds for families with children under 5, or families planning to have children during the dog's lifetime. Dachshunds are often not patient with little kids, and kids can accidentally hurt a dachshund’s back or get bitten.

If you have questions about this dog, please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed on the bio form. They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.

There will be an additional $60 fee added for a required Health Certificate if traveling out of the state in which they are being fostered.

We will not adopt into CT, RI, NH, ME, or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have any issue with this, you will need to take this up with your legislatures.

To understand the adoption process through AADR, please review the Adoption Information on our home page. Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.

Click this link to apply: https://www.allamericandachshundrescue.org/apply, it will take you to the application form.

Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers who will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast or Midwest. We just can't get them from one coast to the other. Please look for dogs on your coast.
