The Perfect Pair!  Mona and Lisa

Mona 4327 & Lisa 4328 portrait 2.jpg

Mona and Lisa love to be held, and enjoy belly rubs and ear massages.  They are expert couch potatoes, choosing to perch on the back of the couch to get a good view.  They both love to explore the yard, sun themselves on the back porch, and snuggle up with each other as much as possible.

Once upon a time, Harlow must have been a “princess”, cuddled and spoiled, but somehow she ended up on the street.  Her people never showed up to claim her.  We knew she was a mix, but with what?  After doing a little research, we realized she is dachshund and Tibetan spaniel!  Her lovely pink nose and beautiful baby blue eyes are mesmerizing.

Please come join us on SUNDAY, June 24, 2018, 11AM - 5PM at OLD WORLD VILLAGE in HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA for a rootin' tootin' fun time!  If you still haven't seen dachshund races, you must come to this event; the hilarity doesn't stop! There will also be bratwurst (and other German food), beer, wine, and soft drinks will also be available, so bring your appetite (persons under 21 years old must be accompanied by an adult in the event area).  Several SCDR doxies available for adoption will be there for “show and tell”!

The Dachshund Races are courtesy of the Wiener Dog Store, vendors will have cool stuff for sale, and there will be a raffle with awesome prizes to benefit Southern California Dachshund Relief!

In 2017 SCDR rescued over 300 dachshunds, pushing our grand total to over 4,200 dachshunds saved since we were founded in 1994. Our doors our open to all doxies from all walks of life , including the old, injured, and "hospice" dogs.  Some rescues are very expensive to vet, but we do whatever is necessary for the love of the breed.

SCDR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit operating entirely on donations and with volunteers.  All donations, big or small, help take care of these wonderful dogs.
