Sponsored by Southern California Dachshund Relief, Inc.

On Sunday, December 9, 2018, we’re starting off the holidays with our annual Wiener Winter Festival! Summer’s Wiener Roundup had a great turnout, so we’re relying on all friends of the lovable dachshund to spread the word and come out to Old World Village in Huntington Beach for a wild day of dachshunds.

Holiday Outfits and Accessories are Encouraged!


Dachshund Races!

Start training your contender early because the (few) dachshunds that take their racing seriously are faster than a speeding bullet! But also keep in mind most contenders meander, turn back, jump the divider, stop for a sniff or two or three or four, and are easily distracted. So don’t be shy about entering your best friend no matter what he/she might do when the starting gate goes up.


Many great prizes are available! Don’t forget to load up on raffle tickets for your favorite prizes!

There will also be a variety of Biere (beers) on tap, plus food, laughter, cheering (during the dachshund races the crowd gets delightfully loud), and endless dachshund stories that warm hearts. All well-behaved pets (on a leash please) are welcome.

"In dachshund racing there are no losers.  Only wieners!"

Max Has Been Adopted (Again)! Congratulations Max!

Max was adopted from SCDR almost 3 years ago and was having a great life. Then, sadly, his human suddenly passed away. SCDR alumni are always welcome back when there’s no where else to go, so Max ended up back with us for a while. Dogs are pretty good at adapting to new situations, but we humans do need to be patient. Our new family member(s) may not eat right away, or be all that friendly. They’re scared and disoriented, and need time to settle in. Sometimes it’s a fast process, sometimes not so fast. Usually love, attention, patience, and routine are all that’s needed to help them quickly become part of the family.
