Available for adoption
Boss/ Gus with Cooper also up for adoption
Update on Boss from the foster home in Okotoks:
Boss, more commonly known by his foster home as Bug and Gus is a great little dog. He loves to snuggle and adores the little girl in the home. She gets a wonderful kissy greeting from Boss every time he sees her. Boss is learning that living with dogs in the foster home isn’t so bad. He would do well and enjoy a home with another dog but will take some time to build up the confidence with them. A confident, non-reactive friend would be the most suitable. He requires an experienced owner that won’t let him get away with bad behavior and will teach him the appropriate ways of being a polite little guy. He is learning the fine art of being a well balanced dog and is doing so quickly. You won’t be disappointed in bringing Boss into your home.
Welcome to Alberta Dachshund Rescue. We are a group of dog lovers who focus their efforts on matching homeless dachshunds with families who will love them forever.
Many of the dogs coming into our care have been abandoned or otherwise mistreated. Some of them have been malnourished or have serious health issues. Others have — for good reason — developed a mistrust of humans. We provide veterinary care to bring them back to health and behavioral therapy to restore their faith in people before we offer them for adoption.
We are a not-for-profit organization and have no paid employees. The funds; which come from donations, fund raising activities, and our modest adoption fee, are all expended directly on the dogs.
All the dogs offered for adoption have: been spayed/neutered; received all their vaccinations; had medical/dental issues addressed; received behavioral assessment/modification as required. If there are ongoing health or behavioral issues, these will be discussed with anyone interested in adopting the animal before adoption.
We always welcome more volunteers. We can use volunteers from anywhere. If you'd like to help us rehome these little dogs, please email us. We'll send you a list of the things we need done in your area. Our most pressing need is for foster homes. Although we have kennel facilities available, we prefer to have the dogs that are awaiting adoption live with families.
We can guarantee is that adopting a homeless dachshund will bring immeasurable enrichment to your life. Thank you for considering it!
FOSTER HOMES NEEDED
Thank you to all who have volunteered to foster; we are still looking for more foster homes so keep sending in those applications. Keep watching for new dogs. We will post dogs that are looking for foster homes.
