CANELO

Size & Breed: Small, Dachshund
Age: Adult, 2 Years
Gender: Male
Coat & Color: Short Length, Red / Chestnut / Orange
House Trained: Yes
Health: Neutered + Vaccinations Up to Date

Canelo is a fun dog who needs a little bit of confidence training. He absolutely loves toys and doesn’t mind being by himself or around other dogs. He is a typical higher energy, young dachshund. He should definitely have a yard or another dog to play with (like Leo!), or someone willing to go on multiple walks. He is working on his potty training (he grew up in a backyard outside) so will need to be reminded with a new routine and home. Leo and Canelo came into the rescue together, but Leo tends to micromanage Canelo and is possessive of toys with him.

DOUG E. DUG

Size & Breed: Small, Dachshund Mix
Age: Adult, Appx 6 Years
Gender: Male
Coat & Color: Short Length, Red / Chestnut / Orange
House Trained: Yes
Health: Neutered + Vaccinations Up to Date

Doug E. Dug spent a whole month in the shelter on the medical ward. He had a broken leg that was repaired with surgery and a cast. Because he was in the medical ward he was not seen by the public and therefore over looked. Dachshunds and Friends Rescue heard about Doug and came to the rescue. Doug went straight to the vet for an exam on his leg. It was found that his leg was healing well. After another month in the cast, Doug was finally cleared for adoption.

We believe Doug is a six year old Dachshund mix…….not sure what he’s mixed with. He’s about 20 pounds of sweetness. He loves toy time, ball time, lap time, wrestling, walks and naps. He gets along well with all dogs. Although Doug shows no signs of being abused or neglected, we think he was probably an outside dog. He is learning the doggie door and his potty manners and will need guidance and reinforcement.

He would be best in a home with older, mature children.

LEO

Size & Breed: Small, Dachshund
Age: Adult, 2 Years
Gender: Male
Coat & Color: Short Length, Chocolate / Tan / Blonde
House Trained: Yes
Health: Neutered + Vaccinations Up to Date

Leo is a fun dog who needs confidence training. It is recommended to hire a trainer for this. He absolutely loves toys and doesn’t mind being by himself or around other dogs, but is very shy. He is a typical higher energy, young dachshund. He should definitely have a yard or another dog to play with (like Canelo!), or someone willing to go on multiple walks. He is working on his potty training (he grew up in a backyard outside) so will need to be reminded with a new routine and home. Leo and Canelo came into the rescue together, but Leo tends to micromanage Canelo and is possessive of toys with him. Leo should see a trainer for to help boost his confidence (he is used to growing up in a backyard) so the world can be a big scary place with new changes.

MOLLY

Size & Breed: Small, Terrier / Dachshund Mix
Age: Adult, 2 – 3 Years
Gender: Female
Coat & Color: Medium Length, White with black dappling
House Trained: Yes
Health: Spayed + Vaccinations Up to Date

Molly came to the rescue on 6/24/18 with 5 six day old puppies. Her family was moving and planned on taking her and the babies to the shelter. While they were moving the little family was left outside on a patio in a cardboard box with clumps and pieces of foam in it…….not even a blanket!!!  They were left for a day or more at a time!!!  How could we say no!!!

Molly is some sort of little terrier mix. She is long and low to the ground so she might be part Doxie but who knows. She weighs around 10 pounds. She is black and white with black dapples on the white. She has brown eyebrows, cheek spots and a little brown in her beard. She has a scruffy coat.

Molly was not treated very well by her owners. The neighbor who helped save this little girl said she had heard them yelling at her and then would hear her cry out or yelp. She was allowed to roam the neighborhood unaltered, unvaccinated, and unsupervised in a high traffic area. She was left for over a week in the apartment ALONE while they went on vacation!!! Despite all of this she is a friendly, sweet, lovable girl. She loves to have her tummy scratched and will roll over for that any time….lol. Dogs are so amazing and forgiving. They are just looking for love.

SAGE

Size & Breed: Small, Chihuahua / German Shepherd Mix
Age: Adult, appx 3 – 4 years
Gender: Female
Coat & Color: Short Length, Yellow / Tan / Blonde / Fawn
House Trained: Yes
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Up to Date

In early September we became aware of 10 dogs living at a construction yard in Tijuana. One dog, Sage, was the mother of all the pups. She had two older pups, close to a year old, and a litter of seven 3 1/2 month old puppies. These dogs had a timeline to be gone or were going to be turned loose on the streets to fend for themselves. How could we say no?

Sage is an extremely sweet and loving girl of about 3-4 years old who weighs about 20 pounds. After living outdoors with no family life for years she had a difficult time adjusting to a new life in a home. She had anxiety when left alone, did not like to be in a crate, and often was looking for ways to escape. This was all so foreign to her. In her best interest, we sent her to a wonderful trainer who worked his magic on with her. She now is comfortable in her crate, walks wonderfully on a leash, knows the “place” command and is an awesome dog overall. Dogs loves structure and her training has made her a well rounded happy dog. She has always been very friendly, gets along well with other dogs and has never shown any aggression whatsoever. She just needed some help learning how to be a dog in a house setting.

Sage is staying with the trainer and we are hoping to get her adopted directly from the trainer. This would be best for her and the new adopters can learn basic techniques that were used by the expert Jason.

This training has cost the rescue over $2,000. But the mental health of a dog is just as important and the physical health. When we took Sage into the rescue we committed to getting her whatever she needed. We now need to get her a home that will be committed to giving her the life that she deserves.

VANDER

Size & Breed: Small, Terrier Mix
Age: Adult, appx 8 years
Gender: Male
Coat & Color: Short Length, Black / White / Cream
House Trained: Yes
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Up to Date

Well look who we have here…..an imposter. Vander was trying to pass as a doxie and we took the bait. We love all dogs so we were glad to get this cute boy out of the county jail. DNA test is in the works. At this point, we are assuming he’s about an 8 year old terrier mix. He’s all vetted and ready for his new adventure.

He loves to play with toys, chase balls and play outside. He is so playful and bunny hops around when happy. He does a bucking bronco with his toys and throws them in the air. If you have another dog, even better. He loves the company of a friend. His foster sister isn’t much into playing despite Vander’s attempts to include her. He has perfect energy……not too little and not too much. Walks around the neighborhood….yes please, he would love to. He’s a perfect gentleman on a leash.

Vander has spent extra time at his foster home adjusting to a new life. He needed to learn he was safe and was loved.

Vander is going to need a patient family that will allow him time to adjust once again to a new environment. This is common in shelter dogs. Many haven’t had the most stable and caring environment. We are determined to get Vander his perfect home. We want him to know the rough life he endured in the past is just that, the past. He wants so much to trust and be loved…he is just not quite there yet.

Vander sleeps in his own bed, is crate trained, house trained if he has access outside. He will have an accident every once in a while. Best with gentle children,10 and up. Let’s make a difference for this boy.

WYNN

Size & Breed: Small, Dachshund
Age: Senior, appx 9 years
Gender: Male
Coat & Color: Short Length, Red / Chestnut / Orange
House Trained: Yes
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Up to Date

From foster mom and dad:

Wynn came in to the rescue on November 29, 2019. His original owner was unable to care for him as a result of health issues, and Wynn ended up in the care of family members that didn’t want him and did not treat him well. He spent most of his time crated and locked out doors.

He is approximately nine years old, weighs 20 lbs. and has a soft short red coat with a small amount of black down his back and tail. He was recently neutered and had his teeth cleaned. Wynn has not been tested with children or cats. He is not housebroken. We use belly bands when he is in the house and take him out as often as possible. He gets along with our four doxies, however the first few days required supervision and he is toy possessive. He was continuously trying to hump other dogs and at 20lbs he is twice the the size of three of our four other dogs, and they didn’t appreciate it. In their own ways they set boundaries and Wynn respects them. However, because of the toy possessiveness, he would probably be better off in a home without other dogs.

Wynn is a wonderful dog who loves a warm lap, loves to be petted and like most other dogs craves attention; as I type this bio, he is laying underneath the desk at my feet. He loves walks and car rides. There is no walk that is too long. Wynn is a loving dog that given his past treatment needs an owner who is patient and will give him their love and attention.
