Everyone Enjoyed the 2018 Wiener Winter Festival!

This event was sponsored by Southern California Dachshund Relief, Inc.

The Winter Wiener Festival held Sunday, December 9th, at Old World Village in Huntington Beach was a huge success. We saw many repeat attenders plus lots of newcomers. Santa Claus and Santa Paws made it there too! Thank you all for coming! Everyone had fun, especially the doxies and other small breeds who ran in the races. We want to thank everyone who dedicated themselves to making this event the success it was. Check out our Facebook page for a detailed account of the festivities!

 Volunteer Vicki comforted scared little Sammy too. If Vicki didn’t already have three doxies at home she would have adopted him!   Breaking news!    A lovely couple spotted Sammy at the event and asked about him. Moved by his story and incredible good looks they fell in love with him. An adoption application was submitted on the spot. The adoption has now been approved and they pick up Sammy Dec 12!  Congrats to all!

Barkley is Back!

Barkley’s story is a good example of what happens when a very young doxie (any pup for that matter) is left unattended for hours on end. Youngsters like Barkley need at least basic obedience training that is constantly reinforced. Barkley also needs lots of love and attention, as well as long walks and play time to burn off all that energy so he’s not interested in tearing up the yard, trying to escape, and barking at literally everything. If you can provide the right forever home for Barkley click the adoption application at the bottom of his bio.

Visit Barkley on our Southern California page. A link to the Adoption Application is at the bottom of his bio!
