Rescue # 17-DUNCAN
Duncan was surrendered when his owner could no longer care for him. We found him a wonderful home with JOMDR Percy. He has a human sister and brother and is spoiled by the entire family. We are so happy for our Duncan Munchkin!
Rescue # 16-BAILEY
She is an older gal who came to us with Riley, Bailey found her forever home and is living with our Lainey.
Rescue # 14- LAINEY
Lainey was turned into the shelter with her mom Estelle. We determined that it was best if the two girls went their separate ways so Lainey is now living her best life with JOMDR Bailey.
Rescue # 13- ESTELLE
Estelle was rescued with her daughter Lainey. Estelle can be a bit of a bully but her new mom is working with her on this and has decided she needs to stay with her permanently! Happy new life Estelle!
Rescue # 12- DEWEY
Dewey is estimated to be between 10 and 12. He was picked up as a stray in Baltimore County earlier this year. No one came forward for him so we scooped him up. Dewey is on a high fiber diet and walks with a funny little gait. His favorite place is in your lap and he loves sleeping in the big bed.
Rescue #8 - Charlie 5/17/19, Age 11
Charlie was rescued from an area shelter. His owner said he was overly protective of her and would nip at anyone near her. We (and the shelter) have not seen any behavior like that but we will certainly work with Charlie to determine the best forever family for him. So far he loves toys and he is sai
Rescue #8 - Charlie 5/17/19, Age 11
Charlie was rescued from an area shelter. His owner said he was overly protective of her and would nip at anyone near her. We (and the shelter) have not seen any behavior like that but we will certainly work with Charlie to determine the best forever family for him. So far he loves toys and he is said to love other dogs. He has been introduced to the other dogs and gets along fine with all of them.. He appears to have some skin issues but a good diet should clear that up. He is heart worm negative and his owner kept him up to date with vaccines. Charlie recently had a dental and lost nine teeth but he is taking it in stride. He is an all around very happy little man and he loves to cool off in the kiddie pool. Charlie is off to start his new life in southern Maryland and we couldn't be happier for him!
Rescue #21 - Benny 11/15/20, Age 4
Benny was a stray in an area shelter. He is a mix of some sort - dachshund and some type of hound we think. We can't believe his owners didn't claim him. He is the sweetest pup - house broken, crate trained, knows how to sit and is learning to shake. He is such a gem of a boy! He has a doxie body and l

Benny was a stray in an area shelter. He is a mix of some sort - dachshund and some type of hound we think. We can't believe his owners didn't claim him. He is the sweetest pup - house broken, crate trained, knows how to sit and is learning to shake. He is such a gem of a boy! He has a doxie body and longer legs and weighs about 18 pounds. We think this boy needs another dog friend and a fenced yard.
Rescue # 10 Prince 9/13/19 Age 13 Our local shelter reached out to us when they received a senior dachshund who was surrendered due to an owner with medical issues. Prince is a little guy who has severe dental disease. The shelter knew it was unlikely he would be adopted due to the anticipated cost of caring for his teeth. We gladly said we would take him and are so glad we did. He is a spry and very well behaved little boy.
Rescue # 15- RILEYShe came to us with an eye injury and had to have a very expensive eye surgery - a corneal graft. She was quite lethargic so our vet did some additional tests and determined she has a liver shunt. Because of this we don't want to risk putting her under anesthesia again so she is on a couple of meds and a strict hepatic diet. She is doing so much better and is quite vocal at mealtime!
Rescue # 19 - Rescued 8/8/20Guinness is 16 and he and a 13 year old shiba inu were abandoned in the woods in Anne Arundel County. The shelter asked if we could take them both so we did. Guinness has a heart murmur and just had a dental to get rid of some nasty teeth. He is a gentle little old man.
Jameson is a 13 year old shiba inu. She and Guinness, a 16 year old dachshund, were abandoned by their owner in the woods. Guinness was captured and a day or so later Jameson was caught in a trap. Both dogs were taken to the shelter and we were asked to take both of them. Jameson had a couple of mammary tumors and needed a dental. We had the tumors removed, spayed her, got her up to date on shots, and she had a dental. The doctors determined the tumors were a mild form of breast cancer and they are confident it won't return. She is a sweet girl who who has found a shiba inu savvy home in southern Maryland.
Rescue #1 - Emmitt. 10/29/18, age 10 months.
Emmitt's former owner didn't have time for a high energy puppy. He was well loved and very well cared for. After getting him neutered, he quickly found a forever home.
He now lives on a farm with another dachshund , a lab puppy who has become his BFF, a cat, and some horses. He gets to play with a lot of grandkids and has a huge yard. He is a very happy boy and his new vet says he has "Arnold Schwarzenegger thighs"!
Rescue #2 - Chase. 12/13/18, age 11
Chase was surrendered to an area shelter when his divorcing family decided they couldn't take on his medical expenses and requested that he be euthanized. He came to us with a skin infection, a mass on his chest, some of the worst teeth we've seen which caused his lower jaw to erode, an eye infection, and red and swollen feet. But he is a complete sweetheart - tail is always wagging. Thanks to our wonderful donors, he has been fully vetted and is on the mend. Our vet was even able to save some of his teeth. He does have chronic dry eye which requires ointment twice daily in his eyes for the rest of his life.
He is going to a wonderful family with three other dogs including another dachshund.
Rescue #3 - Mollie. 12/22/18, age 14
Mollie is a tiny girl at just over ten pounds. She is currently being treated for a couple of different parasites and had a much needed dental (but didn't lose any teeth!). Mollie was rescued first in 2016 after her young owner went off to college and it was determined she had been allergic. Mollie has spent the last two years in a loving home with lots of fur siblings but sadly her owner has become ill and can no longer care for her. Mollie has a beautiful coat and gets along so well for an older gal. When it's meal time, she actually runs to her bowl! Mollie is now enjoying retirement in a small town along the Chesapeake Bay with her mom, brother, and two dogs.
Rescue #4 - Karley. 12/22/18, age 5
Karley spent the first year and a half living in a barn before her previous owner saved her from that life. Sadly her owner has become ill and is no longer able to care for her.She is a very sweet cream wire haired girl who just wants to be on your lap. She has lost a few pounds and also six teeth during her dental and is currently being treated for Lyme disease and a parasite. She is now enjoying the good life with several other dachshunds.
Rescue #5 - Percy. 1/15/19, age 5
Persey, now known as Percy is a chiweenie whose owners' family situation changed and were unable to care for her.
Percy is now spayed and enjoying her forever home and is being spoiled by her mom, dad, sister, and baby brother.
Her grandma crochets her the cutest sweaters!
Rescue # 6 - Rocco 02/28/19, age 10 1/2
He found himself back in the shelter not once but twice after being adopted a few years ago. He started out very quiet but quickly settled in with all the other dogs and like any dachshund, can be quite vocal. He is a sweet, sweet boy and for the life of me, I can't figure out why he was in the shelter twice. He is on our Biggest Loser JOMDR Style diet as he needs to drop a few pounds. Once he loses that weight, his forever home will be with a retired couple.
Rescue #7 = Rosie 4/13/19, age 11
Rosie was in a very loving home for her entire life but she lost her human dad last year and her elderly mom could no longer care for her. As you can see she is overweight - her weight is currently just shy of 26 pounds and she will need to lose ten pounds. She will be in long term foster care while we get her back in shape. Having a dachshund that much overweight reduces their life span and puts so much additional pressure on their joints and back.
UPDATE - we lost Rosie on 4.26.19. Rosie had not eaten for a few days so our vet did an X-ray and determined she had liver cancer. She had been sick for awhile and it went undiagnosed. Fly high sweet girl. Though we only knew you for 13 days, you were certainly one of the sweetest dogs ever. You will be forever in our hearts and the next dog we rescue will be in your honor. <3
Rescue #9 - Jax aka Jackson T. 8/04/19, Age 4 dachshund/spaniel mix
We rescued Jax from an area shelter where he was listed as abandoned. He showed some aggression when he was in the shelter but I chalked it up to the stress of being in that environment. Sadly that stress turned to more aggression so we spent a few months on training and keeping him separated from the rest of the dogs. No matter how hard you try, some animals are wired differently. We could not risk him biting a child so we decided to let him go and rid him of that anxiety and fear. This was a very difficult decision to make.
Rescue # 11 - Mason 10/25/19. Age 15 Shadow, now known as Mason, was surrendered to an area shelter because his owners said he couldn't hold his bladder. This boy had tapeworms, a severe flea allergy, a skin infection, severe cataracts, hearing loss, and some nasty teeth. But despite all that, the doctor says he is in great health.and we need to get a little bit of weight on him. We just found out his birthday is November 26 2004 so he is younger than we were originally told. He wears a belly band at night but rarely has an accident. He is a sweet boy and gets around great for his age - he has the funniest little gait.
Sadly we lost Mason on 9/21/20. The doctor thinks a tendon to his heart ruptured and the prognosis was very poor. He woke up that morning with labored breathing and no appetite - definitely not our Mason. With COVID we are so grateful we were able to hold him as we let him go. Fly high little wind up toy!
Rescue # 18-AUGIEAugie was picked up as a stray in Anne Arundel County and no one came forward for him. He is an older boy but is sweet as can be. He is up to date on shots and just had a dental - 19 teeth pullled. He is feeling so much better. He is a very quiet boy.
Sadly on October 23rd we took Augie to our vet because he hadn't eaten much over the last two days. He also had discharge from his eyes and nose. We did bloodwork and xrays and it was determined his lungs and body were filled with infection and he likely had lung cancer and possibly a brain tumor. This was very aggressive and his prognosis was quite poor. The vet felt that he was suffering so we made the tough decision to let him go. RIP Augie Doggie 10.23.20
Rescue #22 - Buddy 11/21/20, age 7
Buddy was an owner surrender whose elderly owner became ill and could no longer care for Buddy. We only wish we could have rescued Buddy sooner. In less than a day after meeting him, we took him to our vet only to learn he was in end stage kidney failure as well as Lyme and ehrlichia positive. We were told he was suffering and his chances of recovery were only 5-10%. Buddy you only had seven years on this earth and only one day with us but we loved you unconditionally. Fly high sweet boy!
