Furever Dachshund Rescue Adoptable Dogs

Furever Dachshund Rescue (FDR) is a non-profit organization comprised 100% of volunteers located throughout the United States working together to rescue Dachshunds in need of Furever Homes. Below are the dachshunds currently residing in South Carolina, however there are many more throughout the U.S. that are searching for their homes. For more information on these dogs and others like them, please visit the FDR website for foster contact information. If you can't adopt at this time, consider fostering, donating or sponsoring to these animals in need. Happy Adoptable Dog Friday!

1. Chappy

  • Chappy came to his foster home already house trained, crate trained and knows basic commands such as come and sit. He is a double dapple that can hear and has vision, although we think it is limited. He is blind in one eye and has limited vision in the other eye. Chappy is very sweet and likes to cuddle on your lap. He gets along great with other dogs and cats and enjoys playing with both. Please consider adopting Chappy and giving him a loving furever home. Chappy is a very calm and relaxed dachshund, he enjoys lying on the sofa or in his crate. Very rarely barks (only heard him twice). He is a great little guy. Please consider giving Chappy a furever home.

2. Chester

  • Chester has a long and sad story. He was originally owned by a man who did not have a permanent home and moved Chester with him from motel to motel. Eventually he went to jail, and poor Chester found himself without a home and without someone to look after him. A good samaritan took him in and contacted our rescue to help find him a furever home. Chester's color is as unique as his history. He is a red and white double dapple. He has darker red dapple markings on his pretty light red coloring. Chester is a bigger boy and has longer legs that are common with Dachshunds born in the south. He is high energy and would be great in a home where he is walked often and possibly even jogged! Chester has an in your face personality and may will need a strong pack leader to help him find his way. We recommend that Chester goes to a home with Dachshund experience to help make the transition easier on him and his new family. If you can promise Chester that he will be safe furever, please consider applying today!

3. Molly

  • Molly is a beautiful red standard size dachshund (and did we mention she has the cutest little fat doxie paws, we've ever seen??). Molly was surrendered by her family because her human daddy was dying of cancer and none of the family could keep her. She is a sweet girl that just wants to be loved all of the time and is very affectionate. She is always happy to have your attention, but has no problem entertaining herself with a toy or a nap when you are busy. She gets along well with other dogs and loves to play and wrestle with her dachshund housemates. Molly is housebroken and happily spends time out in the yard on her own, but she really LOVES walks and gets super excited when she sees the leash come out! She is losing weight and should be down a couple of pounds very quickly! Molly has a flea allergy – if one flea gets on her she breaks out so she would need her flea/tick medicine on time every month. The allergy is easy to solve with antibiotics but if you just keep her with flea/tick medicine you will not have to worry! She will make a great companion and a wonderful, loving pet for someone! Can your home be her furever home?

4. Ruby

  • Ruby is a beautiful black and tan dachshund but has very long legs. She was an owner surrender at the shelter but we are not sure why because she is such a sweet girl and would love to lay next to you and take a nap. She does growl a little at another alpha female but with a submissive dog will do very well. Ruby could be an only dog and would be great for anyone. She can rest on her own or love up to you on the couch. Could you be Ruby’s furever home?

5. Zoey

  • Hi, my name is Zoey! I’m an energetic friendly little girl looking for my furever home. I’m good with other animals. I love to play and when I’m done, I will curl up on your lap and snuggle. I’m teething, so I love my toys! I am crate trained. I stay in there when my foster mom is out of the house. I am working on my potty training. My foster mom says I’m doing very well. I go potty outside most of the time…except when it’s raining. I really don’t like going out in the rain! I’m being moved to a new foster home this weekend in Myrtle Beach, SC. I’m sooo excited! I’m sure she will post more information about me as she gets to know me. Stay tuned!

Do you name these dogs? The name Zoey is unique! It kinda reminded me of the term used in my fave movie - "Zoowey Mama"! Are you familiar with that phrase? Hehe.
