DREAM Dog Adoption Story

Dallas Draw


Adopted 12/29/16


Dallas is the most chilled out little dog ever! He is fitting in with our family just fine. He loves to be petted and go for walks. He is very curious and likes to investigate every inch of the house. The laundry room is his favorite. Dallas is a very sweet and calm boy.

Buddy Biplane


Adopted 12/11/16


Buddy has made a good transition. We are working with him to teach him basic commands. Jon takes him on a long walk early every morning. Buddy absolutely loves playing with his toys and being outside guarding the back yard. We always stay with the dogs when they are outside as you never know when they might want to dig!!!

Max, our standard dachshund rescue, is a shy boy and Buddy is not, so they don't have much interaction at this point. We are working with them as Buddy will naturally bully Max. On Christmas, we were with our daughters and their families. It was Buddy's first time to meet the husband of one and fiancé of the other. He immediately warmed up to both men. Both families have doggies, both dominant - Molly, a 6 year old Maltese, and Bullet, an 8-9 yr old black & tan tweenie dachshund adopted in 2010. The first meeting went okay. Buddy does get a little possessive of toys so we are working on that too. We'll be grand dog-sitting all of them in February for 5 days and that should provide a real opportunity for them to get to know each other better.

Overall, he's a sweet, happy, joyous little guy and we feel blessed to have him. We will keep you posted as to how he's doing. Thanks again for all the information and for your dedication to dachshund rescue.

"Teddy"


Adopted 12/09/16


The transition into our home has gone extremely well. The whole family is completely in love with them! It's so sweet to see the way they interact with each other - be it cuddling in their doggie bed or playing a rousing game of chase. Potty training is actually a non-issue - I cannot believe it! We take them out once an hour during the day and they haven't even used the towel in their puppy pen that we use for nighttime. So - thank you thank you thank you for these two little bundles of pure joy that have become our newest family members. 😍

Clara Cougs


Adopted 11/12/16


11/18/16

We adopted Clara November 13, 2016. We were looking for a new friend for our doxie, Tucker. Clara and Tucker bonded immediately and are best friends now! They do everything together! They sleep, play, go out, and even crate together! Clara is a bit skittish around my husband, but she is growing more trusting of him each day. She has started sleeping in the bed with us the past few nights, and that was a big step for her. She is such a sweet girl and a perfect fit for our family. Special thanks to Marci for meeting our Tucker and recognizing that Clara would be a great friend for him and our family! We already love her so much, and she and Tucker are best buddies! We appreciate all the support from DREAM Dachshund Rescue of Houston!

Here are a few pictures of Clara and Tucker! She has adjusted very well to Tucker and they are the best of friends! They follow each other around all day! She has gotten used to my husband day by day and now she lets him hold her and pick her up! She now sleeps in the bed with us, too! Clara is the perfect addition to our family and we are thankful to have adopted her!


11/14/16

Clara and Tucker have bonded rapidly! They run and play and roll around and it's SO cute! I was met at the door today with 2 happy dogs who were glad to see me. She's so close to Tucker, it's so sweet! Everything he does, she follows along. She loves me and sits in my lap. She is still a bit skittish with Chad but she's coming along. This morning when he walked to the kitchen, she growled at him again. He knelt down to her and firmly told her no. She did it again then Tucker came out and she got up to go outside. She hasn't growled at him again today. He said when he came home at lunch, they both met him at the door with tails wagging. He petted both of them and they went out. She goes out well, is eating well, and sleeping well. She is a perfect sister for Tucker!!!


Oliver Orchard
"Mr. Bill"


Adopted 11/12/16


Mr. Bill is the SWEETEST and most loving dog! He has brought so much joy to our family and we joke that we don't know what we talked about before Bill was a part of our lives. He's completely transformed from the dog I picked up from Marcie at Lil Ruffhouse. He was shy, wouldn't come close, and seemed very confused. I had a feeling there was a big personality in that little body and... boy was I right! Within 24 hours, he knew he found his forever home and he settled right in. Bill loves to go on long walks and bark at all the squirrels, he loves to chew on any bone, and his absolute favorite thing is to snuggle up under a blanket and nap while we watch TV at night. He's so special and the perfect addition to our family!

Bristol Braeburn
"Ellie"


Adopted 11/11/16


Ellie and Gracie are a perfect fit for our family. They love to go for walks, ride in the car, snuggle on the couch with us, and then sleep all night together in their cozy bed under the blankets. They are getting along very well, sometimes doing things together and other times doing their own thing. Gracie is curious and spunky and Ellie studies things in her quiet way but then will surprise us by jumping in when we least expect it. Both girls are so sweet and affectionate and love the attention they get at home and every time we take them out. My daughters are completely in love and the feeling seems to be mutual. We really love these little darlings and can't thank you enough for all that you do to rescue all of the little angels and help them find their forever families!

"Ardie"


Adopted 11/04/16


Ardie is the sweetest little angel! Everyone absolutely adores her and she is so sweet to everyone. She is so incredibly smart and has learned her new name and our daily routine very fast. She just wants to be by my side all day and get endless belly rubs. We went and visited family in Dallas and they couldn't get enough of her! We are quite popular now and will be expected to visit often. I'm incredibly happy to have found my perfect dachshund and I am excited to have her by my side!

Lucy Lakeland


Adopted 10/25/16


Lucy is a sweet girl who wants a lot of love. She sleeps in the bed with us and stays right by my side touching me all night.

Here are some pictures of Lucy on her first walk Saturday (I had to wait for her vest to come in), Lucy exploring the backyard, Lucy in her vest and personalized reflective collar, and of Lucy and Little Bit playing by the back door.

Thanks to all of the volunteers who rescued Lucy and allowed us to adopt her.

"BB8"


Adopted 10/23/16


BB8 is doing very well. She is still a bit anxious when we leave, but getting better every day. The vet was pleased with how well she looked and she is continuing with the slow heartworm treatment. There is no jealousy with the other dogs; everyone takes turns with lap time. She is fitting in very well.

Lacie Lightsaber


Adopted 10/20/16


This my Lacie girl. Lacie has brought so much joy to me and her brother Cooper Oliver. My little sweet boy was so lonely for companionship. When I first bought Lacie home, it was not so easy. She was so scared, and Cooper just wanted to play. After about 30 minutes, they were playing and getting along wonderfully. Lacie only supposed to to be my foster dog, but I just could not part with her. She is so attached to Cooper and me. My dogs have brought so much joy to my life I can not imagine one day without them. My friends are crazy about my Lacie and Cooper. Thank you, DREAM.

Witten Winesap


Reunited 10/17/16


This week it's like Witten is a whole new dog. No more sling, completely emptying her bladder in one shot. Still have her on crate rest other than short potty breaks. We need to go buy a new harness tonight since the one I bought didn't fit. I can't thank you enough for all your help with this stubborn girl of mine. You have blessed our family.

Eden Empire
"Chloe"


Adopted 10/16/16


Chloe is fitting right in and seems happy. Fred is a bit of a grouchy old dude when it comes to food but he'll get over it. She follows my husband around everywhere he goes. Also, we don't use the doggie door because of Fred's bad back but he goes to the door and sits or will bark. Chloe went to the door and whined a bit and went right out and did her business. She will have a long happy life with us.

Max Makuhita


Adopted 10/07/16


Max Makuhita is the best dog ever! He is a perfect gentlemen and is fitting in nicely with our other 3 rescue dogs. He exceeds our expectations! I'm pretty sure that his loving nature is due to a combination of his naturally sweet disposition paired with the extraordinary care he received from everyone before we adopted him. We consider ourselves VERY lucky to have him in our lives. With the distinct possibility of having to turn in my "man card", he has stolen my heart.

10/20/16 Update

Max had his official visit with our vet this morning. He got a clean bill of health, a little booster shot, and was prescribed Sentinel heartworm prevention medication. They also scanned his microchip and gave us the number. The vet visit could probably have been shortened by about 20 minutes, but EVERYONE in the office had to meet Max and "oooh" and" ahhh" over him. Neither he nor I minded the extra attention. Needless to say, I'm a very proud papa!

Madison Mitt
"Maggie"


Adopted 10/03/16


3/20/17 Update: Madison Mitt, “Maggie”, whom we adopted in October is doing great! She and Annie (our 11 y/o senior rescue) have become great friends. It feels like Maggie has always been a part of the family. Visits from our grandsons, ages 1, 2, and 5, were a bit overwhelming for her at first, but now she just joins in the mayhem. She loves to run in the house and “tackle” her moose toy. She is a snuggler and Annie is teaching her to bury herself under her blanket. It’s funny to watch her trying to do it the way Annie does – throwing the blanket over her head with her nose. They both bundle down in my lap under a blanket in the evenings while we watch TV – it’s their favorite place to be! (And mine!) We can’t thank you enough for rescuing and adopting out this special designer girl to us. She is truly a joy for our family.

Rhett Rawlings
"Milo"


Adopted 10/02/16


Tomorrow marks Milo's first month being home! We decided to change his name, since he really didn't listen much to Rhett. He is my handsome sweet boy. He loves to snuggle right up on me or next to me every chance he gets!

He's gotten very comfortable and I was able to potty train him in about a week maybe two. He no longer has accidents inside the house! Smart boy. He loves to dig and to sniff all around and get into pretty much everything since he's so small. He is a really friendly boy so I am able to take him out to meet new friends (my friends' dogs) he loves to play, wrestle and run all around the house. He's doing great and I am so happy we chose him to add to the family. He will continue to be taken care of as the new baby of the family!

Oakley Eagle
"Duncan"


Adopted 09/24/16


Oakley is doing great. I actually renamed him Duncan because he never responded to Oakley anyway. He loves his sister Abbie and they both love to cuddle. He is still extremely scared of new people. I'm not sure if he had a history of abuse or abandonment. Anytime a new person comes to the house he hides under the bed. He has warmed up to a few people though which is great. He is such a little ham and I love him beyond words! I hope y'all have some upcoming events that I can take him to. Thanks for all you do!

She has bought him blankets and clothes and toys and we just got him today LOL! A super HUGE Thank You to DREAM for making our family complete!

We absolutely adore our little Lula. She is such a lovable girl, and she has fit in with our family so well. She loves to give kisses and curl up in a lap.

Henley – Oh that handsome gentleman! He is the cuddliest, most expressive little guy. He has found his love for frogs! It may also be a love/hate relationship. (he tries to eat them) He IS our little hunter….. Doing his job. ; ) Frogs and rabbits are his fav! Henley is also the laziest out of the two. When we leave we close off the rooms so we actually have to physically remove him from under the covers! Hehehehe

Mason Monferno


Adopted 09/03/16


Mason has found a new past time/play time/friend. His PET ROCK! He loves pushing it allllllllllll over the yard with his nose. It is the funniest thing to watch. I’ll try and get you some video soon. Mason has started running, jumping up and pretty much climbing up us to be held. If he could be held 24/7 he would be in heaven.

Sadie Sableye
"Sadie Belle"


Adopted 09/02/16


Sadie has been such a delight. She's a sweet little love bug and so well mannered. She's adapted to apartment life very well. She loves to go to the duck pond and chase lizards or chill on the couch and watch TV. I could not have asked for a more perfect little girl.

December 22, 2016

Hi! I just wanted to update y'all on Otis!

He just had his neuter surgery on Monday and is recovering very nicely. Otis is up to date on all of his shots and is already 11 pounds!! He is such an amazing dog and everyone falls in love with him instantly! Otis always wants to be held and be right next to us no matter what we are doing, he never barks unless he is playing and gets very excited, and he loves to snuggle (I believe I am to blame for that since I always want to snuggle with him too :)).

I wanted to thank DREAM again for allowing me to adopt this little sweetie! He gets along great with our other dogs and is ALWAYS excited to see his family and meet new friends. I am so grateful for Otis and appreciative to y'all for letting me love him! I just wanted you to know that he is in a happy home and well loved by everyone who meets him.

Thank you again and if you have any other questions for me about Otis let me know!

(Also, sorry about the amount of pictures, he is just so cute!)


October 8, 2016

Otis settled in very quickly his first week at home. My family and friends are so obsessed! He is so precious and perfect that it's hard to leave the house because all I want to do is snuggle with him! He and my other doxie Penny are two peas and a pod and do everything together; they love to play, snuggle, and get attention from everyone they see! He is so sweet and friendly; he loves to meet new people and get little belly rubs whenever he can. I am so grateful to DREAM for allowing me the opportunity to adopt this precious little boy. Otis has so much love to give and I am so thrilled that I can be the one to love him back. Here are some pictures that show him being the adorable little puppy he is. He also makes a very cute Yoda for Halloween!


Adele Allstar


Adopted 08/25/16


Adele is very sweet and loving. She was very shy at first but she has really shown us her true personality. She gets very excited and wiggly when we come home. She loves to go on walks and hunt for lizards. Adele loves to play with her toys and is still learning to bring them back. 😊 We love her gentle nature and expressive eyes.

Molly Mew


Adopted 08/20/16


Molly and Morty are doing well. Morty loves to walk and sniff around the backyard since the next door neighbor has a cat and he is "on patrol" to find it. He jumps up an down in the morning the minute I put on my shoes as he knows the walk will come soon. Molly is a sweet little "Nug" we call her. Short for nugget. She gives love all the time and jumps up in anyone's lap to show her affection. She loves to look out the window while her brother takes a snooze. They play together and I take them to a doggie day care, once a week so they can be with other dogs. They are very sweet and have brought a lot of joy to me and my family.

Cooper Caribbean


Adopted 08/13/16


January 17, 2017

Here’s the update on Cooper. My 20 year old daughter (college student) was home for Christmas break and has been continuously been loving on him. We have been working hard on keeping Cooper weight down. A little dieting and more walking with my daughter to maintain his calendar “show dog” weight. Cooper is my seventh dachshund since I was a boy and I have observed almost every dachshund I’ve owned will eat themselves into a back issue due to the extra weight. Cooper just loves being a member of our pack. I let all the dog outdoors for a run and our big golden retrievers run around the yard like crazy and Cooper is in hot pursuit at a distant third, but he never seems discouraged he’s in last place.


Cooper has spent the weekend with the family is learning the ropes. He is really a big eater. I feed all the dogs together so they get do something enjoyable as a pack. Coops starts running around the kitchen like a wild dog. Mark this adoption up as a success!

"Maggie"


Adopted 08/06/16


Maggie is my sweet baby girl. I've forwarded lots of pictures because I'm slightly obsessed with her! She is a bundle of pure energy who is hopefully going through her final chewing stage. She loves to play fetch, chew fingers and toes, and lick my face and my husband's bald head. She's done pretty well with potty training, and it's rare that we find messes on our rugs any more. We've just started to train her to sit, and she's showing us how smart she is! She's an awesome cuddle buddy as well. She keeps my feet so warm at night. Our English Bulldog Kaydee gets a little outdone with Maggie's hyperactive nature, but Maggie loves her sister so much. She can't wait to go wake her up, or at least try to, every morning.

We all love Maggie so much, and I'm so glad we were blessed with her. I prayed that we would find the perfect dog for our family, and I think she was saved just for us. I could never thank DREAM enough for entrusting us with her!

It's hard to believe, but Otis will be celebrating his one year anniversary in his forever home on July 31st. I brought him into his new pack on July 31, 2016.

This sweet boy has fit into our pack so well, and is such a loved and cherished member of our family. Thanks to the staff, fosters and all involved in caring for and finding new forever homes for these wonderful Doxies!

Once again Dream, thanks for all that you guys do, and for helping Otis to find his Forever Home...☺️

Jamey, Otis & Henry


I've decided to call him Otis. I recently adopted Otis from DREAM Dachshund Rescue. He is a beautiful, loving, spirited and somewhat stubborn addition to our Doxie family. I'm so thankful for DREAM, and what they do for these fur babies who need new forever homes. Otis makes the 5th Doxie we've had, and he has turned out to be a great companion for my other Doxie Henry. Thanks to Becky his foster for helping to guide us through the process. Otis is Finally Home!

Coco has been great. A little growling from the crate on the way over; but that was it. She really loves her ball. She lost it for a few hours Sunday Morning and was not happy. We found it, but just in case I bought a new can of 3 today. She sleeps in my bed and is gradually getting us trained to be her keepers!

Barry Batter
"Guinness Guns"


Adopted 07/24/16


Barry "Guinness Guns" and Pinky "Gracie Glee" are indeed a DREAM and we are all in love! They snuggle, sleep, eat, wrestle repeat and are the perfect fit for our energetic family! I already can not imagine life without them and am typing this with Gracie in my lap and Guinness by my side as we speak. They are not as impressed with the Olympics as we are. :) It's hard to narrow down the pics as it is a constant state of cuteness overload around here but am attaching a few of my favorites. Thanks for checking in and thanks for being so passionate about adoption. Feeling so blessed with three precious babies!

Percy is doing so well. He absolutely loves his adopted brother and sister. Sometimes I’m not sure who adopted who! He loves to play with us and has been doing so well with his potty training (which is GREAT!). He was an instant blessing to our family!

Shorty Shortstop

Adopted 07/21/16


Shorty is now called Jackson, he's very sweet and loves to play with his other family members. He loves riding in the car and going on walks, he has learned so many tricks.

Pogo's new life! He has also learned to fetch and we are teaching him to not fear swimming. We have been taking him on our boat and putting him in the water, in a life jacket, with us and he is slowly getting it! He is the most loving and loyal dog. He gets along well with our other wiener, Oscar, and tries to get him riled up whenever he can! He is super cuddly and we can't imagine our family without him! Thank you!

Her big sister Sadie is so happy to have a puppy to play with. They really enjoyed our Florida beach vacation this summer. Marley is a little snuggle baby who loves sleeping in the bed with her parents and her sister!

Leroy Linedrive


Adopted 07/09/16


Leroy Linedrive is doing great. He's a very smart dog. He's completely house-broken and has learned to "stay" and "here". He now sleeps peacefully in his crate. He'll learn anything. He's so loving and playful and is completely happy with me and Zoe. We all three go for a 15-20 minute walk in the morning and again in the evening after dinner. He has a lot of good energy I help him burn off. I call him Limo. So his full name is now Limo Leroy Linedrive. His new name fits him so well.

Thanks to all of you. I'm completely happy with Limo and the great service DREAM provided by bringing us together. We're a perfect match.


Peanut Paradise


Adopted 07/07/16


Peanut is the sweetest little guy! He is the oldest of our dogs but acts like a puppy! He sleeps right by me or ON me every night. He makes the sweetest little grunts just like he is talking to me. Ever since his bad teeth were pulled he LOVES to eat and sits on his hind legs the entire time I'm filling all of the bowls. He is the smallest yet the most demanding when it comes to food time and that is saying a lot when you consider he is one of 5 dachshunds!

Today is Claire's 1 year adoptive birthday!! And boy are we all happy! Claire is sweet, loving, smart and soooo happy. Thank you for allowing her to rescue us. Cheers to many more birthdays celebrated with us.


8/8/16

We have had Claire a little over 1 month and wanted to let you know that she is thriving. She is a perfect fit for all of us and we couldn't be happier to have her in the family. You all made it so easy and I am so thankful to have worked with you. We know our beloved Abby is looking down on us with pride and happiness that we gave another great girl a chance to live the life she had. A tribute to all of us. Thanks again for all you give.


You really are dream makers. We have had Claire for 3 days and she fits into our family like she has been here forever. She is so sweet, lovable and SMART! Such a great companion for our Zoe and for us. She loves having her choice of 5 beds, all filled with fluffy soft blankets that she is sure we're made just for her. Claire loves her new backyard and has already spent time gardening with me. Her first camping trip will be next week, but no worries; she will be loved and watched as she picks her place in the RV. She truly rescued our hearts. Thank you all for caring for all the pups that find their way to Dream. There is a special place in heaven for y'all.

Leslie, George, Zoe, and Claire

3/16/17 Update: Just wanted to say hello and let you know how Sophie is doing. We had the honor of adopting Sophie, AKA Katie Kauai, on 6/26/16. It has been about 8 months, and she has come so far. She loves to play with her sister Luna, running and playing tug of war with their toys. Sophie has (or should I say "I have") completed obedience class, and she did awesome. I still need some training. We have quiet time at night with belly rubs before she burrows under the covers and goes to sleep. She is the sweetest girl ever and we are so blessed to have her. Thank you for bringing her into our lives.

Bev Birdie


Adopted 06/25/16


Hey DREAM,

I just wanted to give everyone a little update on Bev. We saw the vet yesterday, and Bev received a clean bill of health! Her eye has healed nicely.

While she was a little shy the first few days, she's really warmed up to her new daddy. She's already got me trained on when, where, and how she wants to be petted/rubbed, which is almost constantly. Ha ha. She started playing with her toys more and chewing bones, but her favorite activity is still cuddling/napping! =)

Just wanted to says thanks again for helping me find such a perfect puppy!


Winslow Whiff


Adopted 06/25/16


December 17, 2016

We wanted to give you an up date on Winslow. She is happy, healthy, funny and such a love. It's been almost 6 months since you brought her to us and she has settled in nicely.

She and Tookie are getting along great and now snuggle with each other all day. She loves to go for her daily walks and her favorite thing is going to Starbucks for her puppaccino. She loves her toys and playing ball and she has 3 dog beds that are all hers.

She is now 13 lbs and holding. Her fur is thick, full and feels like a bunny. The spots on her legs that had no fur are filled in too. Her nails are cut back short now and her breath is greatly improved. We love to cuddle her and hold her in our laps.

We love her so much and she is my little co-pilot. I wouldn't know what to do without her. She filled a place in our hearts that needed her and much as she needed us. Her little barks and funny sounds she makes keeps huge smiles on our faces all the time. She is pure joy.

Thank you for rescuing her and giving her a fair start to great future. Hope the coming New Year finds you all dong great things.


August 20, 2016

Winslow is an amazing, lovely little girl and so smart. In the past 2 month we have discovered she can play ball, is completely house trained, kennel trained and an enormous love. She goes to bed in the big bed at night and sleeps all night.

Her coat has returned to normal and is now soft and shines. She has been given a clean bill of health from the vet and we are pleased to tell you they re-tested her and she is for sure heartworm negative!

Her Daddy is her whole world, she loves him and stays by his side. She goes for walks with him and is completely leash trained. She has become a real princess and is settling in very well and has become comfortable and knows this is her furever home. She is living the good life!

We decided to document her journey in her new furever home on Instagram. Please follow us to see what Winslow and her new family are up to: www.instagram.com/wiff_of_joy.

Hope you all have a wonderful summer and see you all soon at Dachtoberfest!

Pebbles St. Padre
"Melody"


Adopted 06/06/16


Melody aka “Mello” (former DREAM puppy Pebbles) is truly a blessing to our home. We are dachshund lovers and were in the hunt for a long haired puppy to add to our family. We started looking on-line for puppies with breeders and eventually widened our search to rescues which lead us to DREAM.

We really liked how the DREAM process works to ensure dogs placed in your home would be a good fit. Working closely with Emily, Marcie and Trisha, we went back and forth on several dogs that we were interested in to best fit with our current family pack.

We kept our eyes open waiting and before we knew it we got a call on a JUST rescued pup that DREAM believed would mesh well with our family. My motherly instinct wanted to jump in head first that Friday but reality told me to wait and allow Emily transport her the next day to observe her in a brand new environment.

Even though she wasn’t a long hair dachshund we fell in love instantly!!! She is truly precious, calm and mellow. Our family pack invited her in with no issues so we decided to keep her for a few day to make sure nothing would change.

What happened is that she stole our hearts! Unusual for a dachshund she has demonstrated good trainability learning to potty outside, come for treats and use support stairs. She is a very smart girl who loves to give hugs and kisses.

The saying is "Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them, filling an emptiness we don't even know we have". What a better Anniversary gift than a new puppy dog! My husband and I are BIG supporters of those who volunteer their time for voiceless, defenseless animals that deserve to be saved and cared for.

DREAM is an AMAZING organization for everything that they do. Thank you so much for placing this special girl in our home! We love her to pieces!

WELCOME HOME MELODY!

Chance Charcoal
"Brisket"


Adopted 05/21/16


We adopted Chance Charcoal in May 2016. We renamed him Brisket.

We are very happy to have Brisket in our family! From day one, he and his new dachshund brother, Boodan, have been best buddies! They sleep together, eat together, and go hunting rabbits together!

In June, when the dogs were hunting together in the cactus and brush about 300 feet from our house, Boodan was struck in the shoulder by a 5 foot rattlesnake. Both dogs were up to date with the rattlesnake vacine. Brisket made so much racket, that my husband went into the cactus to see what was happening. He found Boodan limping badly and in a lot of pain. Brisket had called for help!

I had seen that snake in a different region of our acreage, but after Boo's attack, we cleaned out the cactus and there was no sign further sign of the rattlesnake -- it is probably out there somewhere.

If you live in rattlesnake country, I highly recommend keeping your dog up to date with the vaccine.

Brisket is much more cautious about dangers than old Boodan, who has been sprayed 3 times by skunk and got quilled once by a porcupine. Brisket recently avoided a skunk!

Thank you for all you do! We are very happy with our new family member. We will recommend your organization to everyone.

Dorrie Divot
"Jules"


Adopted 05/06/16


We adopted “Dorrie Divot” on Mother’s Day weekend and renamed her Jules. Jules is a sweet and very little gal. She is all of 7 lbs but acts like she is 10 feet tall.

We discovered after we adopted Jules that she was not shy, but deaf. We would call her and thought she was just being stubborn, not the case. I can bang a pair of shoes behind her head and she isn’t the wiser. She is also blind in one eye and really doesn’t see well out the other. Both have caused dog door training a huge challenge. She finally figured out how to get back in the house, but unless she is put in front of the door she won’t go out herself….YET! We still have hope. She learned the dog steps in a few days. But she has a ritual dance she performs before stepping on the first step and then catapults herself onto the couch, sometimes bouncing against the back cushion. It is quite the site. We discovered by accident that she loves to play fetch with a tiny tennis ball. As long as she can see you throw it she will retrieve it. But the sweetest part is that she puts it back in your hand and sits ready to go get it again. If you do not put your hand down she will drop it and nudge it towards you. She is a huge Momma’s girl and always manages to wedge herself between one of her siblings and Momma. We just love her and are rolling with the challenges she brings to our family.

Aidan Amore
"Little Man"


Adopted 05/01/16


Soon after we got Zooey (our Yorkie puppy), we knew it wouldn't be long before she needed a buddy to grow up with. We have always wanted a weenie dog, so we looked up breeders and adoption organizations, which eventually led us to DREAM. Even though DREAM was in Houston and we were in Fort Worth, we loved how the organization took care of their rescue dogs. Once we got approved to adopt from DREAM, we were pretty set on getting a purebred Dachshund. A few that we were interested got adopted before we could visit them, and we brought one home, but her and Zooey did not get along. Aidan (Little Man") was our last visit. We were told he was shy and needed time to warm up, but once we met him, we were absolutely in love! We knew he was the dog for us. Little Man is one of the sweetest dogs we have ever met. We brought in home to Fort Worth the same day we met him, and he has been a joy ever since. Him and and Zooey are best buddies - they play all day and team up against mommy and daddy to get what they want ;) He is a great cuddler, which his his new mommy loves! We love the new addition to our family and the joy and energy he brings.

Wayne Wrangler
"Otis Redding Rattail"


Adopted 04/23/16


Otis is a blessed addition to our family. Because of his age, we decided to keep Otis' original name instead of adopting the albeit cute character of "Wayne Wrangler." He's such a good boy, seems so accepting of whatever life throws his way. He really enjoys his dental/greenie treats and is learning to "sit;" and, his coat is filling in nicely. While we are at work, he spends the day at Grandmommy's and Pawpaw's house and hunts birds and lizards with Emma, the family yorkie-poodle.

Otis likes to play "Ready, Set, Go" with our daughter...we push her really fast down the hallway in her Cozy Coupe toddler car, and Otis runs alongside; she just giggles and says "Oood-ah." He spends a lot of time playing peek-a-boo under the blankets; and, every morning he wakes us up with kisses! He's definitely a 'morning-dog', it's like he's just happy to get another day. Whenever one of us returns from the store, he runs to greet us at the door and bounces around with excitement. He also likes playing fetch with his ball and binkie toys. Whenever and wherever we take a moment to pause, sit down, or unwind, he capitalizes on the open invitation to be in our laps, or in our faces, or both.

He would tell you that his first bath time at home was a little nerve-wrecking; but, the second time (because he couldn't resist but finding something smelly to roll in), I sang "Tell Your Heart to Beat Again" to him, and he enjoyed it. He really did. I think he likes singing.

We're so impressed by Otis' spirit. Despite his obviously apparent emotional scarring, he is so patient, affectionate, well-mannered, gentle, and grateful. Otis has already taught us a lot in this past week and half. Thank you to DREAM for saving him so that we could share life and love with him. We're looking forward to taking him on our family vacation to Colorado - we just know he's going to have a blast!

P.S. we extended his name to a lengthier one, as befits a dachshund, as befits this little guy. Otis Redding Rattail. If "Rattail" wasn't in his Pedigree, it should have been.

"Tell your heart to beat again. Close your eyes and breathe it in. Let the shadows fall away. Step into the light of grace. Yesterday's a closing door, you don't live there anymore. Say goodbye to where you've been, and tell your heart to beat again. Beginning, just let that word wash over you. It's alright now. Love's healing hands have pulled you through; so get back up, take step one, leave the darkness, feel the sun. Cause your story's far from over, and your journey's just begun."

Lola is such a little Princess. We practically fight over who gets to love on her! And, she actually barked once at the cat! Only once! :-) I took her last week with me to pick up my son at school and she almost made me cry. She wept, not whined, wept the whole way there. I have had dogs my entire life and have never heard a dog cry like that. It was heartbreaking because I think that she thought we were giving her up. I got her a car seat so that she can see out the window next time and hopefully learn to enjoy little trips here and there.

Thank you for Lola. Please know that she is so loved and will never want or need anything. She will be spoiled rotten. We honestly can't imagine life without her now.

"Tonks"


Adopted 04/07/16


Tonks joined our family in April 2016. The name Tonks comes from a character in the Harry Potter series, which our little weenie reminded us of because of the big spot that she had on her nose when she first joined us. When she first arrived here she was nervous, but within half an hour she was playing with our older dog, Ellie. Tonks had many new experiences, and she quickly overcame her fears of leashes, raindrops, and even doors. Some of her favorite hobbies include chewing on rawhides, cuddling, and hiding out in her personal clubhouse underneath the bed. Tonks is the sweetest dog with so much love to give, and we are so happy to have her in our family.

Chet Chaps
"Kramer"


Adopted 03/24/16


Kramer is thriving in his new home. He is eating well and resting a lot because he is till very much like a puppy. He is a little escape artist if given the chance. Who can blame him though given his previous environment. Fortunately Daddy runs 3-5 miles a week and I am just as fast if not faster than he is. We are working on housetraining, digging in the yard, and escaping. I think once he realizes he is in a much better home, the escaping will subside. I keep reminding myself it was a mere 11 days ago, he was a stray on the streets of East Harris County. Thanks to all of you who had a part in putting us together. We have a meeting at 10:00 this morning at Lake Livingston to look at a job. He rides so good in the car that you don't even know he is there.

"Rex" is a Mardi Gras name like Princess so I thought they made a nice combo!

He is great and Princess LOVES him. They follow each other around. Here is a picture of them from the other day after we went to the park. How cute is that?!

Copper Chute
"Cooper"


Adopted 03/18/16


This is Cooper Oliver Robles. I adopted him back in March. When he came to me he was so scared and sad to leave his family. I had gone to the store and purchased toys he could play with, but he wanted nothing to do with them. He cried all night long for his family. I held him in my arms all night long. The next morning he was better. As each new day came and went, he began to perk up. Within a week I had taught three new tricks - sit, lay down and go to your bed. He is so smart. Cooper is so happy now. He plays with my grand-puppy when he visits. He loves me as I do him. He is my sunshine when I get home from work and greets me at the front door. I so love him!

Roman Rodeo


Adopted 03/12/16


Roman is doing really well at home. We have had him for a month now and in that time he has blossomed into a happy healthy little guy. We call him RoBro because with his big fat paws he must hit the gym a lot. ;) He has put on some much needed weight but we are now holding him steady at 15lbs.

He's our big boy. Roman and his sister KitKat are the best of friends. They love playing chase and tug of war, cuddling together, or just mutually destroying toys together. Roman is one happy guy, when KitKat decides to take a nap and he wants to play he will take a toy and throw it in the air and all around for himself to catch and chase. It's super cute.

We are working on how we approach new dog friends because Roman has a tendency to bark at other dogs in excitement, but he is great with people and mom and dad have been taking him on outings frequently to help with his socialization.

Other than that he just loves to be with his people, getting belly rubs and treats for sitting and high fives. I can't explain how happy we are with Roman, we love him so much. KitKat is much more active and playful now that she has a brother to be with all day, I didn't realize how much she needed a dog friend, but now I can't see it any other way. I've attached some pictures of their adventures so far, and I know I'm biased, but they are the cutest pups in the world!

You can also follow them on instagram - twoweeniesinabun. I'm a little obsessed with my babies.

He is such a good boy and gets along well with our 12 year old princess, Noelani. Thank you for caring so much about your dogs. Charlie is happy and well loved! Marcie was such a pleasure to work with and you all do such a wonderful job saving these beautiful dogs!

Bella Bespin


Adopted 02/13/16


She had a great first night here. Slept in our bed. We found out that she snores and it is so stinkin' cute! She runs circles around Lomax; they've been chasing each other around the yard. She is sitting outside right now getting some sun. She acts like she's been here for years.

I had Gretchen less than 24 hours and she took my heart. I dressed her in pink, got her a new bed, and Jackie and Bob fell in love. I understand she's been sitting in Bob's lap most of the day.

Leia Organa
"Lila"


Adopted 02/08/16


We are calling her Lila now. She has adjusted to all of us so well and brings us so much joy! Thank you again for treating her so well. I had to leave her unattended for two hours Tuesday morning and she seemed fine. She is a fast learner, and loves to be playful and get attention. She looks forward to her daily dental treat and for special treats for going potty outside. She loves stretching in the sun.

Rolf Mustafar
"Jake"


Adopted 02/07/16


Dave has been talking about Rolf (who he has named “Jake”) non stop and we’ve decided to officially ADOPT him from DREAM. He and Cinco are outside now surrounding one of our trees and terrorizing the squirrels.

Luke Skywalker
"Rocky"


Adopted 02/06/16


Our meet and greet went well last night. Rocky is a beautiful, sweet boy. Most importantly, Chico liked him! Note Chico’s classic “protective stance” with his chin over Rockie (he used to do that with Coop). Rocky will have a stable, loving home. Thanks again for your kindness through this process. You truly are a DREAM TEAM.

Barney Bigbend


Adopted 01/19/16


We LOVE these dogs! Carlos is sitting in my lap right now while I'm typing. They have become family in the last two weeks. I grew up with Dachshunds and I didn't realize how much I missed them. Barney was a little wary of my husband at first but now he loves to hang out with him. My ten year old son loves snuggling with them and taking them for walks. My 18 year old daughter is hardly ever home between school, work, and her friends but when she comes home they get so excited to see her and try to sneak in her bed. They've been a great addition to our family.

Moose is doing great! He is fitting right in with us and us with him. He is eating well, sleeping well, learning the house (back door, etc) and seems happy and playful. He has multiple beds to pick from at night... Everyone wants him. He goes right in the kennel when we leave without any problems. We really aren't experiencing any difficulties and he seems to not be either. He loves playing in the house and in the backyard with us. I can tell I am going to need to stock up on toys!

Bonzo Bearhug


Adopted 01/14/16


Bonzo is all dressed up in his tie to celebrate his formal adoption. It is amazing how happy I feel knowing that Bonzo is totally mine. He is the most amazing little man – so sweet and loving. Bonzo has been with me for 11 months now as a foster and he became such an important part of my life. I am so excited to be his forever mom now. He will have a wonderful life – all his human family members have told him that he has won the doggie lotto. Thank you DREAM for everything you do for all the dachshunds that come through your doors. I am so blessed to be a part of your team – but most importantly a part of Bonzo’s new life.

Brie has been an amazing addition to our family. She is so loving and playful. She really has become a great companion to our dog Tootles. They run, wrestle and sleep together at night. I just wanted to thank you and your amazing team for letting me be her forever home.

Atticus "George" Advent


Adopted 01/02/16


Things are going great at my new home! My name is still Atticus, but my middle name is George because I remind my new family of their beloved chocolate dachshund who passed away in May. Not only do I look like him, but I act like him too. I love my three new brothers, especially Buddy. We play together all the time and he and I get to sleep with the Mommy and the Daddy at night. The Mommy takes us to the dog park too, and I've made lots of friends there. Life is good! I'm really loving it here! Hope to see you at a DreamDachs event soon!

Love,
Atticus George
