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 is still looking for his forever home.

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 has learned the doggie door and will need continued reinforcement.

Doug is leery of strangers at first but once he gets to know them they are his best friends. 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.

MADELEINE (MADDIE)

Size & Breed: Small, Dachshund
Age: Adult, 1 1/2 Years Appx
Gender: Female
Coat & Color: Short Length, Black
House Trained: Yes
Health: Neutered + Vaccinations Up to Date

In September I was notified of some dogs in Tijuana that were in trouble. An elderly man had been caring for some strays at a work yard where he is the night watchman. This included a mom dog, 2 other pregnant females and 7 puppies. I started posting for fosters to try to help and got very little response. ???

Another rescue group agreed to take the 3 adults. I said DAFR would take the puppies. On Thursday I was told the other rescue backed out and would not take the 3 adults. ??? The dogs had through this weekend or the owner of the work yard said they would be put out on the street.

So after a sleepless night I agreed to take all 10 dogs. This is WITHOUT enough fosters lined up and at a huge expense to the rescue. 2 litters of puppies coming soon……seven 3 month old pups to spay/neuter, food, vaccines, vet check ups, …… who knows what all they will need!!! ???.

Arrangements were made to transport them here. Sadly one of the puppies died and so we welcomed the TJ9.

Within a couple weeks Coco and Maddie had puppies. They had them on the same day. ??? Coco had six that survived and Maddie had eight. The TJ9 became the TJ23.

Their babies have all been adopted and now we want to find them a home. They are very sweet with people but we did send them to training due to some dog aggression. After basically living on their own, fighting for food, just having to survive, they learned that other dogs could pose a threat to them. They’re doing great with the trainer and go regularly on group hikes and walks with other dogs.

Both are both about a year and a half old. They are sisters. 62.5 % Staffordshire terrier, 12.5 % German Shepard and 25% mixed breed groups such as sporting, terrier and guard. Yes we did DNA TESTING. Their way around 33 pounds.

They are great dogs, Very good with people. They would love nothing more than to use sit on the couch and watch Game of Thrones with their person.

ROSIE

Size & Breed: Small, Dachshund
Age: Adolescent, appx 9 months
Gender: Female
Coat & Color: Short Length, Apricot / Beige
House Trained: Yes
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Up to Date

In September 2019 I was notified of some dogs in Tijuana that were in trouble. An elderly man had been caring for some strays at a work yard where he is the night watchman. This included a mom dog, 2 other pregnant females and 7 puppies. Our rescue agreed to take them but before we got them safe with our rescue, one puppy died and another was hit but a car. ???. Little Rosie was the puppy hit by the car. ??? She was taken to a vet in TJ the same day. She was having trouble walking and seemed to have a hip problem. X-RAYS did not indicate any a break. It seemed like it was just a contusion and she seemed to recover. As time progressed she started limping and so we took her to the vet again. Essentially the blood flow to the head of the femur was cut off so the bone there starts to die. She would require surgery to remove the damaged bone at head of the femur. The prognosis of surgery is great, when the healing & scarring is complete she should be good.

Rosie has had the surgery and is doing very well. She is putting weight on her leg, running, playing and ready for her new home. Rosie has some dog aggression and will need a home willing to work with her. She barks at other dogs and gets very defensive but will quickly back down with correction. The TJ dogs were basically living on their own, fighting for food, just having to survive, and they learned that other dogs could pose a threat to them. She is very sweet with people.

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.
