BIO (3/12/2019):  Hello, Sprout here!  Thank you for taking the time to check me out!

I have been in my foster home for about 2 weeks and am adapting very well.  I was very timid and shy, but I'm coming out of my shell.  I hang with the others fosters.  My needs are simple;  all I need is:

  1.  A fenced yard, this is a must have

  2.  Another dachshund to hang with and learn from

  3.  Someone that will be patient with me while I learn to trust

  4.  A family that's willing to not give me up like the last two families did

  5.  No apartments

  6.  Someone home a lot would help and a doggie door

If you are looking for a sweet boy that doesn't bark much, then you should not look any further!  Sprout is a quiet boy but he does need time to understand he can trust you and that you won't hurt him.  He will need love and patience.  His foster mom will be happy to explain everything about Sprout if you want to reach out to speak to her.  But don't wait... complete the online application and she'll be happy to answer all your questions.

Foster mom is going to be very picky where he goes because we don't want him to be returned again by a family that doesn't understand how he is.
Since we have been giving him a smaller dose of Prozac(the second family put him on it but we can't figure out why) he is getting much better and in about three weeks he'll be completely off it. Please don't let that scare you off this boy is so very very sweet and deserves his last home, please make that yours if you have the patience and love to give him.


=============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============

If you have questions about this dog, please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above.  They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal. 

We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $45 fee added for the required Health Certificate. 

We will not adopt into the state of CT, RI, NH, ME or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you need to take this up with your legislatures.

To understand the adoption process through AADR, please review the Adoption Information on our home page.  Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.

If you are interested in adopting this Dachshund please review Read Before You Adopt and then you can complete an Application.


Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers that will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well.  For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
