My Story

Date into Rescue: 2/18/2021

Reason for being in rescue: Stray Anderson

Special Needs: Darrah has back pain from a previous injury. She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. On 5/19/21 Darrah had a dental with 4 extractions. She also had surgery to resect necrotic ear tips. Her ears have healed.

What kind of home would be best for me: Darrah would like a home where there are low expectations of companionship. She would like to be around people, but would prefer to be left alone. Darrah would like a soft spot to land in quiet home where she can rest quietly. She wouldn't mind another quiet dog pal to keep company. Darrah asks for a crate and access to pee pads because the outside world is big and scary. 

What is my personality like: Darrah is pretty anti-social towards humans. She has been let down by people and would like to not be hurt by them anymore. She can be a cranky girl when asked to do something she has zero interest in and interrupts her sleep schedule. If forced, Darrah will snap out of fear and pain. 

Darrah came to CPR with a bad back. This is not uncommon with dachshunds. Her condition is stable and we think this drives her anti-social behavior.

How do I act when I first meet new people: Darrah would rather not. They can keep walking by and she's just fine with that. 

Tips and Tidbits: Darrah's estimated birthday is 2/18/2017. She was found as a stray so we have no background on her. 

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.

Thank you for considering CPR!
