Lolly and Rocky, North Lakes, Queensland

Lollu 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

Archie – Sydney/Central Coast

Archie is 5 years old and looking for a new home where his owners will be home for the majority of the day.  He is an anxious dachshund and is currently on medications for his separation anxiety.  Archie is going to need to go to a home where his new owners will be prepared to work with his issues and allow him time to settle in to his new environment.

Archie is extremely affectionate and when he’s not playing ball will sit on your lap and enjoy cuddles and tummy rubs. Archie isn’t used to children and has been known to nip if he is taken by surprise or scared. Therefore he would be more suitable in a home with older teenagers who understand his needs.  Archie is not very social with other breeds but is starting to get better with other dachshunds.

He is around 9.5kg, toilet trained, de sexed and up to date with his vaccinations. Adoption fee: $450.

Please fill in an adoption form and contact ruth@dachshundrescueaustralia.com.au if you are interested to learn more about welcoming this beautiful little boy into your home.

Due to Archie’s medication and anxiety issues he will not be available for interstate flights.


Winston  – St Kilda VIC

Microchip 956 0000 0294 0041

5 year old Winston has become overprotective of his family since they have had their human baby and moved into an apartment.  Although he has shown no signs of aggression his owners are concerned that he may do so when visitors come around to their home.

Winston has always been a little anxious and clingy towards his owners but he is an extremely affectionate and loving boy showing 100% devotion and loyalty to them.  When left alone he tends to bark so he would suit a family who was home majority of the time.  Although he isn’t very fond of other breeds, Winston has been proven to like his own kind so he could go with another dachshund who is already settled into their home.

Winston has plenty of energy and loves to play ball and go for walks.  Two years ago he did suffer from some back issues which did not require surgery but he does need to be careful.  His owners have since ensured he does not jump or play any games which may make him twist and turn suddenly and he has had no incidences since that time.

Winston has been described as a mini.  He is desexed, vaccinated and toilet trained.  Adoption fee: $400.

For further details please fill in an adoption form which is found on our website and contact ruth@dachshundrescueaustralia.com.au

Frank and Betty, Port Macquarie, NSW

Frank is 8.5 years old and weighs approximately 7.1 kilos and Betty is 7 years old weighing approximately 7.3 kilos.

This beautiful pair of dachshunds are looking for a home with a retired couple who will be mostly at home with them.

Frank is your typical dachshund, a little wary of strange dogs and people and will bark to warn them off, and also whilst he’s tolerant of young children he definitely would prefer much older ones! Frank is extremely affectionate and loyal, and would love nothing more than to be by your side or on your lap all day long; so does fret when left at home alone for too long.

Betty is completely submissive towards other dogs and will roll on her back when approached by other dogs.  She is also extremely affectionate and is very placid by nature. Betty is best friends with and very protective of the family’s three year old son.  Unfortunately, a couple of months ago Betty did go through an episode of IVDD and has recovered with crate rest, acupuncture and swimming exercises down at the beach.  She does have a slight wobbly walk as a result but it hasn’t stopped Betty from enjoying all that life has to offer – including her favourite pastime of chasing lizards in the backyard!

They are desexed, vaccinated and microchipped (Frank microchip # – 982000148321833 and Betty microchip # 978102100045038).

Gordi and Murphy – Drouin Victoria – *ON TRIAL*

These two 5 year old boys are looking for a new home together where they will be very much part of the family who will take them on daily walks as they love being out and about.  A country property would be ideal rather than busy suburbia with lots of dogs around as they can be a little barky when they meet new dogs until they are familiar with them. Ball is a favourite game of theirs, mostly to see who can get there first, but in typical dachshund fashion don’t expect the ball to be brought back to you.

Must be a couple or a family with older children as Gordi is not keen on the very little ones.  They are slightly overweight at the moment as the family have been so busy and unable to take them on their daily walks.

The boys are housetrained, affectionate, desexed, vaccinated but are not fond of cats!
