Hi! I am Dexter! Sometimes I am called Dex, sometimes I only answer to Mr. Handsome. I am a cuddly, fun guy who has recovered from paralysis. I had a back injury, likely due to genetics, and I had the surgery to fix it. Due to my back, I should not do stairs. After I rehabbed, I can walk again although I am wobbly and have some bathroom accidents when I don't make it to the doggie door in time. I love to rip apart my stuffed toys and hang with the other foster dogs. I am quiet and easy going. My favorite place to hang out is in the kitchen because that is where the snacks live. Meeting new people is no problem for me because I am friendly and charming. Having someone home with me all the time would be a dream come true, but I can certainly nap while you go to work if that means more snacks and toys, but I will need attention and love when you come home. I enjoy the company of other dogs and pretty much ignore the cat.

I have a secret superpower!  Go look at my video and you can see that I know how to arrange my own covers and tuck myself in to bed.  It took my foster mom a while but she finally got it on video.  I know, pretty cool if I say so myself.

Love dachshunds and not ready to adopt or circumstances won't permit having a dog?  How about being a sponsor or making a donation.  Every one of our dachshunds receives excellent medical care along with day to day food, love and housing.  Being non-profit, we rely on generous individuals like yourselves to help save these fur babies.  You can do this specifically for one dog with the sponsor button on their webpage or a general donation on our “How To Help” page.  Easy and quick through Pay Pal or your debit/credit card.  You generosity is sincerely appreciated by all and is tax deductable.  Need other ideas?  You'll find tons of them on the How to Help tab.  All contributions are tax deductable.


Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas is a non-profit 501(c)(3) volunteer organization with focus on rescue and adoption of pure breed Dachshunds.  All dogs are fully vetted and housed on private property.  Meetings are scheduled upon adoption approval.  Thank you for your continued support to the rescue and shelter communities!

AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
