Budd – Albury Wodonga – approx 9 kilos although has put on a little bit of weight!

Budd is a handsome three year old dachshund who desperately needs a special someone to help him to be the best boy on the block. Currently Budd’s reputation is tarnished after experiencing major changes in his life. Budd has become anxious, confused and is displaying undesirable behaviours. This includes three episodes of biting children and killing the family chook.

Budd’s barking has become problematic for both his family and neighbours. Budd does not like being left alone and protests by barking intermittently. Budd also cannot inhibit barking when triggered by loud sounds such the motor mower and when people or birds enter the back yard, an area he considers to be his own. After an incident where Budd discovered a snake he now barks in a frenzy at the garden hose. 

Budd is not an easy dog to walk. He pulls on the lead while lunging and barking at people passing by. This escalates if he sees a dog. Budd loves his tucker, guards his dinner ferociously and steals his brothers food. It is not surprising he is now slightly overweight. 

Despite all that is written, Budd is a loveable and loving dog. He enjoys receiving attention in the form of pats, belly rubs and scratches behind the ear. He loves a cuddle on the couch and sun baking in the backyard.

Are the person who could help Budd develop positive doggy behaviours? He will need an abundance of love, endless patience, and calm,assertive guidance during training across several months.

Belle – Nowra, NSW

Belle is an eight-year-old miniature dachshund who is just as lovely as her name suggests. She has a beautiful nature, loves snuggles with her humans and is always happy to hear secrets whispered in her ears. Belle is an intelligent dog who was easily trained to walk nicely on the lead and to take herself to the toilet outside. She communicates her needs well especially regarding meals and bedtime.

Belle is initially reserved with new adults and children. She may even bark if people are in a hurry to greet her. However once Belle is given time to relax in your presence, she readily accepts pats and is ready to play. Chasey with children is a favourite game. Belle loves her daily walks and will never turn down a trip to the beach.

Belle has not adapted well to her family’s coastal home and her long days alone. The frequent parade of people passing by triggers Belles territorial instincts. And she barks! Not surprisingly, the neighbours are not happy. Despite her owner’s best efforts to manage Belle’s barking, the problem persists. Consequently, Belle’s owners have made the heartbreaking decision to find her a new home. It is hoped that with companionship for most of the day and perhaps a calm small dog as a friend, Belle will become a less anxious and happier girl.

If you think you can offer Belle a loving home, please complete an online adoption form and contact yvette@dachshundrescueaustralia.com.au

Foxy – 10 month old dachshund/collie – Emerald, Qld – *on a 2 week trial*

Foxy is a dachshund cross border collie and weighing 10.5 kilos could be described as a standard dachshund on longer legs! Foxy has a sweet and affectionate nature while possessing all the endearing traits of a dachshund. She loves shadowing your every movement, nudging you for cuddles when you sit down, curling up on your lap to watch TV and generally lapping up love and attention.

Foxy would suit a person or couple who want a loyal, affectionate companion that they can spoil and include in their daily activities and outings.  She is a perfect traveller in the car so would suit either grey nomads or a single, active person who is home more often than not. As Foxy can become jealous of sharing  her owners attention she would need to be the only dog and may not be suited to a family with young children, 8 years and older should be fine.

Foxy is housetrained, desexed and vaccinated, microchip #956000009593742.

If this gorgeous girl seems to be your ideal companion please contact sharman@dachshundrescueaustralia.com.au

Adoption fee: $500

Lolly and Rocky, North Lakes, Queensland – *on 2 week trial*

Lolly 11 years old and Rocky 8 years old, are a pair of mini smooths who need to be rehomed together.

Their needs are very simple, a quiet home without young children or cats, a sunny spot and a cuddle on the couch, would make these two extremely happy.

After the arrival of a baby they have had to readjust to life outside, when they have been used to living indoors as part of the family. They’re a lovely natured pair and are just looking for a home where they can be part of the family again.

They are desexed, vaccinated and microchipped.

Please complete an online adoption form and contact karan@dachshundrescueaustralia.com.au
