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.

Le Monix (pronounced Lay Monee) is a sweet, loving, gentle girl. Cherished by her human family and her senior dog companion, as well as her cat friends, she had been part of the family since she was born, as her mother had also been part of the family for the first months of Le Monixs life.

Over time, her human mom realized that Le Monix was not getting the fun puppy days that should be part of her life, so she called SCDR, and we were so pleased that she did.

Le Monix loves walks, car rides, the backyard, watching the goats in the barnyard, toys of all kinds, but especially her foster siblings. It is so good to see her open up her heart to the other doxies in the house. She was a little shy the first day, but immediately fell into place after that.

Watch this short video of Le Monix playing with his foster siblings. Le Monix is the one wearing the blue collar.

 
 

She was not totally house trained when she arrived at her foster home, but she has learned new commands since being in foster, and so far, she has only had one accident - way to go Le Monix! She was recently spayed and her vaccines all brought current, so she is ready for her new home today.

Le Monix enjoys sleeping with any of her foster siblings, but really wants to be in the big bed. She absolutely must have a young dog for play and companionship. She likes males and females alike, as well as her cat friends. She will groom the cats and they groom her. It is shocking, but true.

If you can provide a wonderful forever home for Le Monix, please feel free to contact Dawn, her foster mom, at dawnaa@pacbell.net. An adoption application and a home check are required.

WON’T YOU BE HER VALENTINE?

Ellie 4385-2  face2.jpg

Miss Ellie (4385)

Age: 2 years
Color: Red
Coat: Smooth
Sex: Spayed Female
Size: Tiny mini – 9 lbs.

Adoption Pending.JPG

On a cold, late-November morning, Miss Ellie’s temporary owner was ready to place her and her three relatives, her father, sister, and niece into the Santa Rosa shelter. The shelter employee kindly suggested that he contact a rescue group to help find homes for these four beautiful dogs.

Family members were trying to help the owner, but with working full time, a child and another pet in the house proved to be too much. Unfortunately, Miss Ellie and her family had not really had much love, training or human interaction. During the two month stay before coming to SCDR, they were only fed, watered, and mostly left in the laundry room with a lot of pee pads.

Miss Ellie appears to be a very healthy, happy little girl. She is crate trained, but really doesn’t want to be in a crate. She is currently sleeping with her pup, but soon she will be back with her other foster siblings. They all cuddle up with each other like all good dachshunds, and look like a giant pretzel in the morning. They are happy to go outside and run like the wind together, it is comical to watch them all interact.

Miss Ellie appears to be a dachshund/min pin mix. Her legs are taller than the average dachshund, so she can navigate any stairs. Miss Ellie has learned many new things since being in rescue. She was not potty savvy, but now understands “outside” and she is always happy to go and run and play. She loves to be able to sit in your lap for a nap; she loves tummy rubs and gives you the sweetest looks nothing compares to it. She is one devoted little girl.

What we did not know about Miss Ellie, was that she was two weeks away from giving birth for at least the third time in her short little two years of life. That is so inappropriate for such a young female, but she has been the best mom ever, maybe because she knows it is her LAST baby!

She enjoys ripping up a toy or two, loves her little chew bones and she loves each and every one of her foster siblings, especially a new little girl, Le Monix, also two years old.

Watch this short video of Miss Ellie playing with his foster siblings. Ellie is the one the littlest one NOT wearing a collar.

 
 

Miss Ellie would be especially happy with another small dog to play with, and is hoping for a Valentine’s Day miracle that she will be adopted.

Miss Ellie will be spayed just as soon as her baby stops nursing, hopefully by the first week of February. If you can provide a wonderful forever home for Miss Ellie, please feel free to contact Dawn, her foster mom, at dawnaa@pacbell.net.

An adoption application and a home check are required.

The tax deductible donation for Miss Ellie is $300.00
REMINDER: The puppy in the photo is NOT available for adoption.

~ SCOOBY DOO IS BEING FOSTERED IN RENO, NEVADA ~

On a cold, late-November morning, Scooby Doo’s temporary owner was ready to place him and his three female relatives into the Santa Rosa shelter. The shelter employee kindly suggested that he contact a rescue group to help find homes for these four beautiful dogs.

Family members were trying to help the owner, but with working full time, a child and another pet in the house proved to be too much. Unfortunately, Scooby Doo and his family had not really had much love, training or human interaction. During the two month stay before coming to SCDR, they were only fed, watered, and mostly left in the laundry room with a lot of pads.

Scooby Doo appears to be a very healthy, happy little guy. He is currently either sleeping on the couch in the TV room, or with several of his foster siblings. He loves snuggling and curling up with any of them. We really do not know his true age, so our best guess is between 3 and 5 years.

Scooby Doo appears to be a min-pin/dachshund mix, and he has super long legs that he can navigate any stairs. Scooby Doo has learned many new commands and acceptable behaviors since coming into rescue.

Scooby Doo has a heart of gold, wants to love you and be your boy. We don’t believe that he had many toys to play with in the past, but he can entertain himself for quite some time when he has a toy or chew bone. He is very friendly with the other dachshunds in the house. He is gentle and sweet, and a little bit goofy running around the back yard. He has just had his first experience with snow on the ground, and he loves running and jumping through it. Scooby Doo loves car-rides, walks, running around, and all small dogs.

If you are old enough to recall the Saturday morning cartoon show, “Scooby Doo”, he is almost the spitting image, especially when he is sitting with his back to you. His little curly tail and goofy ears say it all.

Watch this short video of Scooby Doo playing with his foster siblings. Scooby is the one with the curly tail wearing a purple collar!

 
 

Scooby Doo is still a little bit rambunctious, probably because he was really stripped of his puppyhood. Reinforcement of good habits and a bit of training and he’ll settle down.

If you could be the perfect home for Chico, please fill out the online application for him, and feel free to contact his foster mom, Dawn, at dawnaa@pacbell.net.

The tax deductible donation for Scooby Doo is $250.00
