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.

* adoption pending *

One of our volunteers was surfing the internet, and came upon an ad on Craig’s List from someone needing to rehome their dachshund.  She contacted them immediately, and made arrangements to take their puppy into rescue.

Isn’t Minnie the most adorable puppy?  She has the most beautiful eyes.  Minnie is a typical puppy.  She is very playful and goofy.  Minnie is very happy with puppy mischief mixed in.  Minnie cannot be an only dog. She enjoys playtime and she would like a younger, confident, dachshund brother or two to play with and to teach her the ropes. She needs a canine mentor.

She is shy when meeting new people, but she warms up quickly.  We feel she wasn’t taken out and about during her first 11 months. Her foster mom has worked very hard with her on leash training, and she has gotten better, but her new family will have to commit to working on her leash training and getting her out and about.  Minnie needs to learn that the world is not a scary place.

Minnie has learned the dog door at her foster home and is working on housetraining, but her new people will need to continue to work with her to reinforce good potty habits.  Minnie is crate trained, but she doesn’t like to be crated or confined, however, she is fine as long as it is for only short periods.

The ideal home for Minnie would have the following qualities:

  • Previous dachshund experience is a plus.
  • Another dog for play and companionship, preferably a slightly older male.
  • A very secure INDOOR place for Minnie 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 30 and 65 years of age.
  • No infants or toddlers, please, but we will consider families with gentle children over 10 years old.

If you can provide Minnie with a wonderful home, please email Janice at  An adoption application and home check are required.

The tax deductible donation for Minnie is $450.00
