Meet Nugget (female)

Courtesy Listing! Please contact Southern California Dachshund Relief at: and not the rescue group connected to this page. The best (and preferred) method of contact for quick response is by way of e-mail. Please read the dog’s entire bio before contacting the rescue.

Nugget, an 8 pound, 2-year-old female, was rescued by Southern California Dachshund Rescue as a stray. Nugget is definitely a Dachshund mix; we are guessing mixed with a small terrier judging by the size and shape of her head and ears. However, her stature and body and tail are all Dachshund.

Nugget is house-trained (however potty reinforcement is suggested in any new environment) and she has been crate-trained, though she much prefers to hang out on the living room sofa or sleep in the big bed with her people. Nugget is a high-energy dog, and needs someone who likes going for walks, hiking, maybe the beach, in other words, regular activities where she can apply her energy . A young, active male dog would be a most welcome attribute to the home we choose for her (she can be pushy with other females). She loves to play-wrestle and to disembowel stuffed toys, killing the squeaker, then shaking the snot out of them to be sure they are really “dead.” She has a strong prey-drive, so no cats please.

Nugget is a “Houdini Weenie.” She can scale a 3-foot baby-gate effortlessly (which is probably how she ended up lost and then in rescue in the first place). Fences and gates need to be at least 4 feet tall (no wrought-iron railing, as she can squeeze her body through in-between the rails). With her energy level, she needs a young family that will give her regular outlets towards her energy.

The ideal home for Nugget would have the following:
• Someone at home most of the day, stay-at-home moms/dads or folks who work from home.
• Previous dog experience is a plus.
• Another small dog (male) for play and companionship.
• A very secure INDOOR place for Nugget to be when no one is at home (a crate is preferred).
• Applicants must be between 25 and 66 years of age.
• No infants or toddlers, please, but we will consider families with gentle children over 8 years old.

Nugget is spayed, fully vaccinated, and microchipped, and is ready for a new home. If you can provide the type of home she needs, please contact Dena at (562) 694-6868 or email An adoption application and home check are required.
