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.

Vinny ended up as a stray in a high kill shelter in Central California.  How could someone let such a nice dachshund end up in the shelter and not get him out?  Your guess is as good as ours. No worries for Vinny though. We came to his rescue.  We are so glad we did.  He is as sweet as he is adorable.

Vinny is great with the two other small dogs in his foster home.  He enjoys playing. Vinny would very much enjoy another small dog in his adoptive home.

Vinny is good on a leash, and he enjoys going for walks.  He enjoys going for rides in the car. Do you like to travel?  We’re sure Vinny would like to travel with you. Like many dachshunds, Vinny enjoys sunbathing.

Vinny hasn’t been crated in his foster home, but when the foster mom goes to work she baby-gates him in her bathroom.  Vinny seems to be doing well with housetraining, but he also uses the potty pads that his foster mom puts out when she is gone.

Vinny is neutered, microchipped, fully vaccinated, and he had a complete dental.

If you are interested in adopting Vinny, please email Janice at and complete our online application.  An adoption application and home check are required.

The tax deductible donation for Vinny is $100.00
