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.

~Elsa,anna,& huey are a bonded trio & cannot be separated~
Here in Reno we are gamblers, so three of a kind is a term we all know. That’s right; with these three you will have thought that you hit the jackpot!
The three came into rescue after their last human parent passed away, basically leaving them homeless as the person in charge did not want them.
Fortunately for them, a kind lady checking Facebook saw their plight and stepped up the help them find a new home by contacting SCDR.
Initially, they were full of fleas, overgrown nails, bursting anal glands, when they opened their mouths; it smelled like a garbage dump. SCDR spares no money when it comes to the health of our foster dogs, and to date, these three have cost $3,888.00. Fast forward a month and their horror story is now over, and they are looking for a dream come true.
Most of our clients know that a bonded pair is amazing to adopt, the way they hang around together, follow each other, play together, get in trouble, sleep, snuggle and groom each other. So I ask you, if two are better than one, then a bonded trio must be heaven on earth! Remember “Three’s a charm!”
Mama Elsa, 11yrs, is deaf, but one of the sweetest, gentle and calm girls ever.
Anna and Huey are 8 year old siblings and also sweet little lap dwellers. They love to be the center of attention, but can also be a little independent. Anna gives sweet little kisses, and she loves to groom Huey. She is a smart girl, but does not show off.
Huey is a little bit clingy, always watching you and follows his human everywhere. Huey will alert when he hears a strange noise, or a new human comes into the house.
All three are house trained; sleep all night without any fuss on the living room couch, or a bed in the bedroom, up to date on vaccines and all three had extensive dental work. They really don’t play with toys, have not had any leash training yet, but they are happy, with curious personalities, and funny antics.
Our desire is to keep them together as a family, but if necessary we will separate Elsa from the siblings.
If you can provide a wonderful forever home, please fill out the online application and feel free to contact foster mom Dawn at email@example.com. An application and home check are required.
The tax-deductible adoption donation for the trio is $400.00
Age: approx. 12 years
Size: Tweenie – 14 lbs.
~ MISTER IS BEING FOSTERED IN CARMICHAEL, CA ~
Please note: This is a courtesy listing for a private party. Please read dog’s entire written bio before contacting Jennifer, the foster mom (Jennifer’s email address is below).
About 6 weeks ago, this senior dachshund was abandoned in a crate and left behind a vehicle in Carmichael, CA. My nephew brought him to me knowing that I would take him. However, I am not able to devote the time and attention he deserves and I am looking to re-home him.
While he has many GREAT qualities and is such a sweet boy, I have to be honest about his flaws to make sure I find him the best home for his needs.
He is blind. However, my vet was hopeful that with cataract surgery, he may be able to restore his vision. It costs roughly $2K per eye.
He is mostly deaf. Although being blind and deaf, he is quick learner. He learned the layout of my house and yard in just a few days, and stopped running into things completely. He will only walk in circles in unfamiliar territory. Then once he learns his surroundings, he is solid and confident navigating himself around.
He has separation anxiety and barks at night or when in any confined space. I am scared to bring him into our bed in case he walks straight off the edge and injures himself.
He had severe dental disease, and 2 oral/nasal fistulas when I took him in. Unfortunately, the vet had to remove all of his teeth. He can eat kibble or soft food, but needs to be taken to the vet if he gets a runny nose, cough, or persistent sneezing, as he could get food particles into his respiratory system and get a serious infection.
None of these flaws are the reason he is being re-homed. He is a good, loving boy who has done nothing wrong. I simply don’t have the time to care for him the way he deserves. My household is busy with other dogs who step on him, or whip his face with their tails and send him crying, and puppies who pick on him. He deserves better than what I can give him during his golden years. Those are all the things that his new mom and dad would need to consider before taking him.
The pros are endless. He is such a daily inspiration to my family. He is so resilient, and has an amazing attitude. He does not have the typical dachshund personality. He LOVES everyone, and every pet we have. He always seems to be so happy and patient.
His favorite thing to do, being a senior, is cuddle, sleep, and he LOVES when you rub his eyes and snoot for him!
Mister is potty trained with the understanding that you have to physically have to carry him outside every 2 hours or so to go. He does his business almost immediately when you set him down outside, but if you fail to bring him outside in a timely fashion, he will go inside.
Mister can be adopted almost anywhere in California. My husband is a private pilot, and can fly him to Southern California if necessary.
Mister is up-to-date on shots and is neutered. For more information on Mister, feel free to contact Jennifer at Jen@bptreeservices.com. SCDR will be accepting and forwarding applications to Jennifer. A home check is also required for Mister’s adoption.

Little guy Tank is another casualty of neglectful owners. He was found wandering the scary streets of Sacramento in the sweltering heat in mid-July, scared, hungry, dirty and thirsty, no tags, no collar or microchip.
Fortunately for him, caring shelter workers picked him up off the streets, and after one phone call, he was allowed to be rescued by SCDR. (Kudos to our wonderful volunteers - Theresa who bailed Tank out of the shelter; and to Jim for meeting up with Theresa to transport Tank to Reno. They each drive hours and hours to help out the neediest of our rescues.)
One day later, Tank was off to Reno where he will stay until his new family adopts him.
Tank quietly lays at your feet, nervous about sitting on any piece of furniture, he jumps down almost immediately, we think perhaps he was never allowed on the furniture.
So far, he is pretty quiet, has no interest in toys or playtime with his foster siblings. He does mingle with them, and he likes them, so we feel he would do best with another doxie his age to pal around with.
Tank is currently sleeping in the TV room on a little bed, sleeps all night and is so happy to see you in the morning.
We do not know if Tank likes children or cats, but he is very mellow and most likely will fit into any household. He seems to be potty trained, he goes in and out all day long, and has not had any indoor accidents.
He seems to like a short walk, and he may be a perfect RV dog if you enjoy traveling.
Tank is ready to start his new life with you, so if you can provide a forever, safe, loving home for him, please feel free to contact his foster mom, Dawn,, at firstname.lastname@example.org. An application and home check are required.
The tax deductible donation for Tank is $325.00
~ lilly & lola are a bonded pair and cannot be separated ~
Do you enjoy a good mystery? Do you like a happy ending?
Well, you could have both, we will never solve the mystery of how and why these two gorgeous girls were running the streets in Yuba County, Northern California. The usual story - no tags, no collar, no microchip, days at the shelter looking for their owner to retrieve them. Boy, are we happy that our volunteer, Theresa, was willing to drive several hours to bail them out.
The girls are sisters, but no way of knowing their exact age. They each have a little bit of gray on their faces, which is very normal for “red” doxies. They can be gray in the face as early as one year old.
They are both as sweet and loving as any doxies I have had the pleasure of fostering. Not too many times do I want to adopt them for my own, but these two are going to make you oh so very happy.
Both are eager to please, they rarely bark, no bad habits that have been seen. We do not know about children, however, they are so very mellow, older children would most likely be fine, cats, not so sure!
The girls have finally started playing with toys and love to play with their foster siblings, especially Thumper! They are very bonded, they don’t wander to far from each other.
They are crate trained for sleeping, never make a peep overnight, tails wagging and full of energy in the morning, they immediately go outside to do their business.
Lilly and Lola just had dentals, Lilly had four extractions, Lola none, all vaccines are now current, and they are microchipped.
Do you have room in your heart and home for these two perfect girls? If so, please fill out the online application, and feel free to contact foster mom, Dawn, at email@example.com, A home check is also required.
The tax deductible donation for Lilly and Lola is $650.00
