Eddie-2 is Now Available To Any SCDR Location!

Eddie-2 was rescued by SCDR from a big shelter in Fresno. He’s a dachshund mix, but that’s a plus because he got the best qualities from whatever other breed he’s mixed with. Eddie is very smart, and loves attention. His legs are also slightly longer so this handsome boy can use the stairs! Eddie-2 is very sweet and likes both men and women. Another highlight of this little guy is that he’s been very good with the other dachshunds in his foster home. His foster mom reports that he will be a wonderful pet for a family.

Rocky and Roy are a Wonderful Pair!

Rocky and Roy have been brothers for the past 9 years. Their beloved owner sadly passed away, so his son kindly took them in at Dad’s request. Unfortunately, the son’s own dog was less than friendly toward the brothers, and Rocky and Roy’s gentle nature made them easy targets for aggression. Brokenhearted but without options, the son asked SCDR to find them a loving home together.

Rocky and Roy are very well socialized, house and crate trained, walk well on leash, and love to be loved. Even new people are well received by these guys!

Visit Rocky and Roy on our Southern California page. A link to the Adoption Application is at the bottom of their bio!

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!
