SCDR's mission is to ensure as many dachshunds as possible have loving, forever homes.  And we're fortunate to serve California from North to South and Central in between.  We have many dachshunds fostered in all three regions and do our best to give you the option to adopt from any one of them.

Please inquire and we''ll work with you to transfer them to where you live, or you can pick them up.  Please contact us for more info.

Name:  Gigi  3961
Age:  11 years
Color:  Red
Coat:  Smooth
Sex:  Female/Spayed
Size:  Mini – 10 lbs.

Gigi is being fostered in Sonoma, ca

Poor little Gigi ended up in a high kill shelter in Central CA as a stray, and no one came for her, so we scooped her up as soon as we could.  Gigi pranced out of the shelter on her freedom day.  We took her immediately to the vet to have a check-up and blood work done.

Gigi is as sweet as they come.  We don’t know her exact age, but two vets guessed that she is between 10 and 11 years old.  Don’t let that number fool you.  She has lots of pep in her step.  Gigi is great on a leash and loves going for walks.

Gigi is great with other dogs and would be fine with other small dogs for companionship. She could probably be an “only dog” as well, as long as her people were not gone for long periods of time.  Gigi seems to really like children too, so we think she would be fine with respectful children ages 8 and up.

Gigi sleeps in the big bed at night.  Gigi is housetrained and uses a dog door.  She rides well in the car.  Do you like to travel with your dachshund?  Gigi is the girl for you!

Gigi is spayed, microchipped, and her shots are now current.  She has had a complete dental.  Her teeth were in horrendous condition, but we waited until she recovered from kennel cough before addressing her teeth.  She has now had a complete dental (12 extractions and 2 oral-nasal fistulas repaired).  She feels so much better now, and she is in good health.  Gigi is ready for her new home.

Name:  Marley  3864
Age:  4 years
Color:  Black & Tan
Coat:  Smooth
Sex:  Male/Neutered
Size:  Micro Mini – 8 lbs.

*adoption pending*

It is rare that we get micro-minis, so when we rescued Marley, we could not have been more thrilled.  Marley is an adorable micro-mini.  He is a black and tan, but his coloring is mostly black with only a small amount of tan on his paws.

Marley is great with other dogs and he is currently being fostered with both male and female dachshunds.  He would enjoy having another dachshund in the home for play and companionship.  Marley is a teeny-tiny guy, so we will only consider adoptive homes that have small dogs.  Sorry no large dogs.

Marley is also very friendly with people and he wants his person around most of the time.  Marley has a bit of separation anxiety, so stay at home parents/work from home or recently retired folks are encouraged to apply.  Marley is so tiny that he could be easily injured by a young child, but we will consider families with gentle children ages 12 and up.

Marley loves playing with squeaky balls and loves to play several times a day.  Marley is also good on a leash, and he loves going for walks.  He is also good in the car.

Marley has access to a doggy door and his foster parents have been working on his potty training.  He is doing pretty well, but his adoptive parents (who must have a doggy door) will also need to keep a watchful eye, so he continues his good potty habits.

Marley has been neutered, microchipped, and his shots are current.  He does have a luxating patella (a knee joint that slips out of place), but in Marley’s case, it won’t go back into place.  He sometimes holds his leg up when he is running, but it does not really seem to bother him.  When examined by our Central CA veterinarian, he did not suggest correcting it unless it starts causing him pain.
