Robbie 4268-2 body.jpg
Robbie 4268-1 face.jpg

Name: Robbie  4268
Age:  20 months
Color:  Red
Coat:  Smooth
Sex:  Male/Neutered
Size:  Tweenie – 15 lbs.

*adoption pending *

Robbie’s first year and half of life was definitely not the best.  Adopted as a puppy and then left outside all day in all kinds of weather with little more than a cardboard box and ratty blanket for shelter.  He was allowed to sleep in the laundry room when it got cold or rained.  The next door neighbor spoke to the owners many times, asking them to give her the dog.  They refused, because their teenage daughter “loved him”.  Lately, the family left home for long weekends, leaving Robbie at home outside to fend for himself.  The neighbor made sure he had water to drink.  Cheap dry dog food was left in a bowl outside with him.  (Ants were having a field day in it.)  She opted to feed him decent food in their absence.  Robbie cried and whined so much, she finally took him into her home until they returned.  Just after Christmas she was able to convince them to relinquish Robbie to her, and they willingly signed ownership of Robbie over to the neighbor.  She wasted no time making sure Robbie was neutered and microchipped.  Once he was neutered, Robbie came to SCDR to find a real home.

Isn’t Robbie super handsome? Look at those big brown puppy-dog eyes.  Don’t let his sad face fool you.  Robbie is very happy in his foster home where there are other youngish dachshunds willing to play with him.  And best of all, he is now an “inside” dog with access to outside with a dog door.  Quality food abounds and Robbie is eating like a champ.

Robbie needs some help with leash training.  They never taught him or took him anywhere except the vet for puppy shots.  Unfortunately, he did not get very many car rides in the past either.  Robbie needs to learn that a “goforaride” is a fun adventure, not just for going to the vet.

Robbie was not house trained when he arrived at his foster home, but he is doing much better as time goes by and he gets regular potty reminder times during the day as well as praise and rewards for a job well done.  His new family will have to be committed to continuing to reinforce good potty habits. Robbie is doing well on crate training as well, and goes willingly into his crate for meals and bedtimes.

Robbie loves playing with any other dog that is willing.  He is as sweet as they come, just a big, lovable Baby Huey.  He is a very happy dachshund with a bit of mischief in his personality.  He cannot be an “only dog”.  He needs a canine mentor as well as human leadership. 

Robbie would be fine in most households, and he might be good with cats.  He is young enough to learn to leave the kitty alone. He is very curious about cats, and has chased one, but did no harm and then basically ignored the cat.

The ideal home for Robbie would have the following qualities:

  • Previous dachshund experience is a plus.
  • Another dog for play and companionship, preferably a slightly older female.
  • A very secure INDOOR place for Robbie to be when no one is at home.
  • A single level home with a dog door to a secure back yard.
  • Applicants must be between 25 and 65 years of age.
  • No infants or toddlers, please, but we will consider families with gentle children over 8 years old.

If you can provide Robbie with a wonderful home, please call Dena at 562-694-6868 or email at dena@scdr.org.  An adoption application and home check are required.

Mini-Cooper 4122-1 face.jpg

Name:  Mini-Cooper  4122
Age: 5 years
D.O.B.: 04/01/2012
Color: Red
Coat: Smooth
Sex: Female/Spayed
Size: Tweenie - 16 lbs.

* adoption pending *

Mini-Cooper was named after the little sports car by her former family.  Cooper was rescued by our Central CA group.  We received a call from her former owner saying that Cooper needed rescue, because she had bladder stones and needed surgery which she could not afford.  Our Central CA team jumped into action to put the plan in place for her.  

Cooper arrived to our vet late the next afternoon and she had surgery the following morning. Cooper had lots of bladder stones and some of them were large. She had to have been suffering for some time. Cooper is so very sweet and she had been very stoic about her pain for quite a while. Cooper needed a few weeks to recover before she was available for adoption.  She will need to eat a prescription diet (Royal Canin SO) for the rest of her life to prevent the crystals and bladder stones from forming ever again.

Cooper is crate trained and house trained.  She learned the dog door after just a few minutes watching the other dogs in her foster home go in and out.  She is very smart.  She walks well on a leash and is very good in the car.  We are looking for a family with children over 7 years old for her.

Cooper is outgoing and social.  She is always up for a good game of chase or “wrestle-mania” and would like a home with a boy dachshund.  She wants to sleep in the big bed with her people, but is begrudgingly settling for a comfy crate in the master bedroom for now. 

Cooper is very healthy, vaccines are current and she is microchipped.  If you are interested in giving Cooper a loving home, please contact Dena at (562) 694-6868 or e-mail Dena@SCDR.org.  A home check and an adoption application are required.

Bella Pie 4265-1 face.jpg

Name:  Bella  4265
Ages: 10 years
D.O.B.:  11/24/07
Color: Red Piebald
Coat: Smooth
Sex:  Female/Spayed
Size:  Tweenie – 14 lbs.

Pharaoh 4266-1 face.jpg

Name:  Pharaoh  4266
Ages:  6 years
D.O.B.:  4/28/2011
Color: Red
Coat: Smooth
Sex: Male/Neutered
Size:  Tweenie – 15 lbs.

Pharaoh and Bella were originally purchased to be companions for a couple’s young son.  However, soon after he left home for college, they realized they really didn’t want to be tied down with dogs to care for.  The son was not in a position to take the dogs with him, so the parents asked SCDR to help find them a loving home. 

Pharaoh and Bella really love each other.  They are crate trained and about 90% house-trained.  They did not have the ideal life in their past home.  They were left outside in the yard all day long (a dog house with blankets was provided as well as adequate water and food).  They were taken into the garage at night to sleep together in a large crate.  On weekends, they were sometimes allowed in the house proper, but still ushered out to the garage for sleeping, no matter how hot or cold the weather.  They truly deserve better.

They need a home with a yard and a dog door and access to a very secure yard.  They absolutely cannot be apartment/condo dogs.  They love exploring the yard and basking in the sun.  They ride nicely in the car.  They need some help with leash training – they pull when they see another dog approaching.

Bella is never far from Pharaoh at any time.  They eat together, sleep together, and just hang out together.  They share a cushy dog bed at night in the foster’s master bedroom, but we would like to place them with a family that will allow them the luxury of sleeping in the big bed or a large dog bed.  Pharaoh and Bella are safe with dog-savvy children over 10 years old.  No babies or toddlers please.  They are very long and very short, so a home with no stairs (all on one level) would be desirable.

Bella is very loveable, smart, patient, and good natured. Pharaoh is young and active.  He would love a teenager to teach him the joys of playing ball.  They are fine with other small dogs.

Pharaoh and Bella are healthy, have current vaccinations, and are microchipped.  If you can give them a loving home together, please contact Dena at (562) 694-6868 or email Dena@SCDR.org.  An adoption application and home check are required.

The tax deductible donation for Pharaoh and Bella is $275.00 for both

Wicket LH 4261-1 face.jpg
Wicket LH 4261-2 body.jpg

Name:  Wicket  4261
Age: 5 years
D.O.B.: 5/14/2012
Color:  Black & Tan
Coat: Longhair
Sex: Male/Neutered
Size: Standard – 20 lbs.

* adoption pending *

Wicket was loved and cherished his whole life.  And life was good until the 11 year old grandson came to live with Wicket’s owner.  The child was very disobedient and would not leave Wicket alone though warned repeatedly.  Finally, Wicket had enough, and the child got nipped.  Grandma knew the problem would escalate, and to protect Wicket, she asked us to find him a new home where he would not be continuously harassed.

Despite the turmoil in Wicket’s recent past life, he is one fabulous dog.  He is house trained, dog-door savvy, and highly intelligent.  He enjoys the back yard for sunning himself and exploring.  He is super sweet and although a bit shy when meeting new people.  He is not a good candidate to live with a family with young children.  But he is safe with teenagers (especially girls).  Wicket would like a stay-at-home mom/dad, or someone who works from home, or recent retirees who don’t mind taking him along when visiting or running errands.  He enjoys adult company, and would not mind a mild-mannered small dog companion. 

Wicket is a huge cuddler!  He is snuggly and sweet on the sofa.  He would like to sleep in the big bed in the master bedroom, but is making do with a cushy dog bed for now.  He has many fine attributes including being a good eater (always appreciated by foster moms), greets strangers nicely, does not bark very much, but when he does, it’s a very loud, protective bark reserved for folks who ring the doorbell.  He quiets on command.  He loves going for long walks and rides nicely in the passenger seat of the car.  Wicket is well socialized with other dachshunds and is a welcome guest in his foster home. 

As Wicket is a longhaired dachshund, previous experience with a longhair is a big plus, as he will require regular brushing and occasional professional grooming to look his absolute best.  He is fine with a quick daily brushing to keep the mats and tangles at bay.

Wicket is very healthy, his vaccines are up to date, and he is now microchipped.  Wicket is fine for ground-level apartment or condo dwellers, but as his legs are extra short, he should not go up and down stairs or be allowed to jump off the furniture.  

If you are interested in Wicket, please contact Dena at (562) 694-6868 or email Dena@SCDR.org.   A home check and an adoption application are required.

The tax deductible donation for Wicket is $175.00

Tucker 3904-1 face.jpg

Name:  Tucker 3904
Age:  approx. 8-9 years
Color: Black & Tan Dapple
with one blue eye, one brown eye
Coat: Smooth
Sex: Male/Neutered
Size:  Mini – 12 lbs.

Lady 2905-1 face.jpg

Name:  Lady 3905
Age:  approx. 8-9 years
Color: Red with just
a touch of gray on her muzzle
Coat: Smooth
Sex:  Female/Spayed
Size:  Mini – 10 lbs.

Lady 3905 & Tucker Dpl 3904-1.jpg

Tucker and Lady were rescued from the Central California SPCA a little over a year ago.  They were surrendered together and shelter personnel hoped they’d be adopted together.  Luckily, an SCDR volunteer spotted them and contacted us.  She asked if we could bail them both out of the shelter as a pair.  Any fool can see that they are inseparable and bonded.  Their love for each other is obvious.  How could we refuse?  They were just too adorable for words.

After their medical needs were met, they went to stay in a foster home in San Diego.  And until recently, we thought they were going to keep them.  But, alas, they have many more dogs than legally allowed and they decided that Tucker and Lady would be fine in another home as long as they have each other.

Lady is never far from Tucker at any time.  They eat together, sleep together, and just hang out together.  Tucker defers to Lady and looks to her for guidance and approval.  They share a cushy dog bed by day and a roomy crate at night, but desire to sleep in the big bed with their people if they are the only dogs in the big bed.  Tucker and Lady are safe with children over 8 years old.  No babies or toddlers please.  They are not good with cats. 

Lady is very loveable, smart, patient, and good natured. Tucker is a mellow couch-potato most of the time.  She prefers men over women, he prefers women over men.  They are the perfect couple for a recently retired couple with two empty laps to fill.

Tucker and Lady are healthy, have current vaccinations, and are microchipped.  They have had complete dental cleaning as part of our regular medical care.  If you can give them a loving home together, please contact Dena at (562) 694-6868 or email Dena@SCDR.org.  They are a bonded pair and we will not separate them.  An adoption application and home check are required.

Puppies!

All of them2.JPG

These adorable doxie mix puppies (3 girls and 1 boy) were born around September 1st.  They are healthy and well socialized with dogs and people.  They were purchased off Craig’s List by a Good Samaritan who was afraid for their safety.  Once she had them, she contacted SCDR, and we took them to the vet to have complete physicals, first vaccinations, microchips, and deworming.  Now they are ready to find them forever homes.

These are very sweet puppies.  They will receive another round of shots before they are adopted out.  We will be adopting them out on spay/neuter contracts, because they are too young and too tiny to undergo surgery at this time.  We will be requiring an extra refundable deposit of $100.00.

Because they are so young, these puppies can be trained to get along well with cats and other small pets. Applicants will need the following qualifications:

  • Someone at home most of the day, stay-at-home moms or folks who work from home.
  • Previous dachshund experience is a plus but not essential.
  • Another small dog for play and companionship.
  • A very secure INDOOR place for the puppy to be when no one is at home.
  • Applicants must be between 25 and 65 years of age.
  • No infants or toddlers, please, but we will consider families with children over 8 years old.

If you are interested in one or two of these puppies, email Dena at Dena@SCDR.org or call 562-694-6868.  An application and home check are required.

The tax deductible donation for each puppy is $200.00
plus a $100.00 refundable spay/neuter deposit

Duchess 4267-1 portrait.jpg

Name: Duchess  4267
Age: 10 years
D.O.B.: 11/06/2007
Color: Black & Tan
Coat:  Smooth
Sex: Female/Spayed
Size: Mini – 11 lbs.

Duchess lost her home through no fault of her own.  When the only child left home for college, the parents realized they didn’t have time for Duchess and didn’t want to be tied down with a dog, so they asked SCDR to help find Duchess a loving home.

Duchess is trying to understand what has happened to her and is spending most of her time in a little dog bed for comfort and safety.  She did not have the ideal life in her past home.  She was left outside in the yard all day long (a dog house with blankets was provided as well as adequate water).  She was taken into the garage at night to sleep in a crate.  On weekends, she was sometimes allowed in the house proper, but still ushered out to the garage for sleeping, no matter how hot or cold the weather.  She truly deserves better. 

Duchess is crate trained and house trained.  She learned the dog door after watching a few of her fellow foster dogs go out and in.  She loves going for walks and rides nicely in the car.  Her favorite thing was to be a lap dog when allowed in the house.  She happily goes into her bedtime crate for sleeping, but we would like to see her with a family that will let her join them in the big bed.  Retired folks are encouraged to apply for Duchess.  They have the best laps.

Duchess is healthy, and her vaccinations are current.  She is microchipped.  We think she is really too old to care about cats.  She is well socialized and would be fine with another small male dog.  A mellow cat would probably be OK too. 

Duchess is safe with dog-savvy children over 8 years old.  No babies or toddlers please.  She is very long and very short, so a home with no stairs (all on one level) would be desirable.

If you can give Duchess a home for the rest of her life, please contact Dena at (562) 694-6868.or email Dena@SCDR.org.  An adoption application and home check are required.

Name: Maleah 4053
Age:  approx. 10 years
Color: Black & Tan
Coat:  Smooth
Sex: Female/Spayed
Size: Tweenie – 14 lbs.

Maleah was on the Red List (euthanasia) at the Inland Valley Humane Society.  A concerned Good Samaritan rescued her just in the nick of time.  However, when she brought Maleah home, the resident dogs were very upset and very unfriendly toward Maleah.  The lady contacted several rescue groups, but SCDR was the only one to step up and say Yes.

Maleah is just slightly taller than the average dachshund and the best part about that is that she would be fine in a home with stairs.  Our vet concluded that she was three quarters dachshund and one quarter Min-Pin, giving her a stronger back and less likelihood of future injury from going up and down stairs. 

Maleah is a little shy when meeting new people.  However, she is not shy about meeting new dogs.  She wants a home with a mild-mannered male dachshund for companionship.  We don’t know how she feels about cats.  Maleah is crate trained.  She appears to be house trained . . . . about as much as any dachshund can be.  She learned to use the doggy door the first day she was in her new foster home.  She would like a home with a dog door and access to a secure yard as well.  Families with older children would be fine for Maleah.  Retirees would be even better.

Maleah is a good eater (a much appreciated attribute by rescuers) and keeps her nose in her own bowl at dinner time.  She patiently waits for her fellow fosters to finish before checking their bowls for any missed morsels.  She’s also quite polite, taking treats from her foster mom’s hand ever so gently.  She’s a love-bug.

Maleah loves to cuddle on the sofa and is ready to sit in any available lap.  She walks well on a leash, and loves to go for a ride in the car as well.  Maleah goes into her crate to sleep at night, but she really wants to sleep in the big bed with her people instead.  She likes to snuggle down under the covers and doesn’t budge until morning. 

Maleah is healthy, her vaccines are up-to-date, and she has been microchipped.  If you are interested in Maleah, please complete our adoption application, and contact Dena at Dena@scdr.org or call (562) 694-6868.

The tax deductible donation for Maleah is $125.00
