My Story

Date into Rescue: 06/15/2018

Reason for being in rescue: Surrendered by owners who had life changes and could no longer provide for their dog

Special Needs: Yes, Sammy has anxiety when left alone.

What kind of home would be best for me? Sammy loves life and would love a home with buddies (canine, feline and human).  Owner experience needed: 4 Second or third dog (because he would love a companion dog), owner does not need experience with behavior or medical issues other than routine end of life issues

What is my personality like: Calling all Dachshund lovers!  Sammy was rescued as a puppy. He has grown up in a home with 5 kids and does well with all of them. He is great with most dogs, and can be dog selective. He was raised in a home with cats and loves them. Sammy loves to sleep in the bed under the covers. He is crate trained and walks well on a leash. Sammy gets attached to people quickly, he does have anxiety when left alone. He is an overall happy boy who will make a wonderful companion for some lucky family!

How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly

Tips and Tidbits:

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
