SCDR has been on a mission to rescue as many dachshunds as possible since 1994.  From the great state of California to Reno, Nevada, SCDR is rescuing dachshunds from whatever misfortune has befallen them, giving them whatever medical attention they need, providing a bit of basic training, and lovingly caring for them until the day they are adopted into their new forever homes.

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.

Harry Sr WH 4735-1 portrait.jpg

Harry (4735)

Age: 10 years
DOB: 04/03/2009
Color: Wild Boar
Coat: Wirehair
Sex: Male/Neutered
Size: Standard – 30 lbs.


When Harry’s former owner became ill, family members knew it was only a matter of time before Harry needed to find a new home. The daughter contacted SCDR to make arrangements for Harry, a horrible situation for him. He remained close to his mom until the end. We were delighted to help him in his quest for a new human to love.

Harry is a gentle giant, a classical standard wild boar, not seen too often. In fact, this foster mom has only seen one other like him in fifteen years. He is 40 inches from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail, just his snout alone is 4 inches.

Harry is reliably house trained. Going in and out of the doggie door is a piece of cake for him. He loves going for a walk, and he gets the most excited when he sees his leash. He is always looking out the window for someone to take him on a walk.

Harry is good in the car. He lays down immediately and is anxious to go. He loves exploring the yard, and is making friends with the five rescue goats in the barn-yard, he seems fascinated by them, but never barks or charges.

Harry is very easy going, loves all the other foster dachshunds he lives with, and likes little kids as long as they are not too loud. He loves belly rubs, rolling over for you to make it easier, he will fall asleep on your lap and gently snore.

Harry is currently sleeping in his own bed with a huge blanket, but he would love to be in the big bed. Harry has learned to navigate the ramp to the couch and just wants to be with you at all times. He would be great in a home if you are retired, as he really does not want to be home alone all day.

If you are the one for Harry, please fill out the online application, and feel free to contact foster mom Dawn at A home check is also required.

The tax-deductible donation for Harry is only $150.00
