BIO: Alex was surrendered when his owner had a stroke and could no longer care for him. He came from Alabama. He was a little on the chunky side but we have gotten a few pounds off of him and now he has more energy and likes to play, or is trying to play with other dogs that will play with him. He likes being around his people and while he is crate trained, he really wants to be with you. He was an only dog so we think he’d be fine with other small young dogs or by himself. He must have a fenced yard so he can exercise and keep his weight down. Our must haves for handsome Alex include:
A fenced yard
Someone who is home a lot
No apartments or high rises
Children over the age of 10 years who respect a dog's space
Alex is a great dog and deserves a great home that will love him and care for him so he won’t have to be rehomed again. Is that your home? He could go to an active family that likes to hike or do a lot of walking!
============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============
AADR does not recommend dachshunds for families with children under 5, or families planning to have children during the dog's lifetime. Dachshunds are often not patient with little kids, and kids can accidentally hurt a dachshunds back or get bitten.
If you have questions about this dog, please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above. They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.
We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $55 fee added for the required Health Certificate.
We will not adopt into CT, RI, NH, ME, or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you will need to take this up with your legislatures.
To understand the adoption process through AADR, please review the Adoption Information on our home page. Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.
Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers that will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast and MidWest. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other. Please look for dogs on your coast.AADR does not recommend dachshunds for families with children under 5, or families planning to have children during the dog's lifetime.
