Chandler Sunscreen
"Ralphie"


Adopted 08/11/19


Thank you for the opportunity to meet and adopt Ralphie (aka Chandler). His foster, Ann, did a wonderful job with him during the first 6 weeks. It's been almost a month since we brought him home, and his personality is shining through. Although he's still nervous in new situations, it has decreased as he is gaining more confidence. He is definitely a lap dog and spends his time next to one of us during the evenings and weekends. His favorite spot in bed is snuggled between the pillows. He is starting to show some interest in toys and Nylabones and loves to eat! He's gained several pounds and is up to 10 lbs. now. We've heard his bark/howl when his two dog sisters hear something, and he curiously watches the squirrels outside.

Cedric Cinnamon
"Ricky"


Adopted 07/28/19


Cedrick is a little bundle of joy. He loves jumping and trying to play with our Korben 5 yrs old. Korben is a bit grouche. Cedrick- Ricky, I gave him a nickname, doesn’t give up, everyday he gives Korben another try. Then he plays with the neighbor cat that loves coming in our doogie door to spend the day at our house.

Ricky gives us many laughs throughout the day. This week I am taking him for some obedience classes to see if we can calm his barking. When he sees an unfamiliar object he spends lot of time barking at it.

He loves our walks too.

Snoopy Snorkel
"Milo"


Adopted 07/21/19


We changed Snoopy's name to Milo, which he has learned and answers to now! He's so smart! At first, Milo was very shy and he and Rocky (our other pup) did not get along. Now, they are good friends, for the most part. LOL. Milo loves to sit on our laps or next to us and cuddle. He also likes the new doggy bed we got for him on Amazon but he still sleeps with us whenever possible. Milo likes to sun himself in the backyard. When he first came to live with us, he always looked so sad and people would tell us that he looked sad; however, he doesn't look that way anymore. I think it was because he missed his foster family, but now he's happy and he is getting to be a rolly polly as he loves to eat! My husband calls him Velvet Dog because he has the softest, smoothest coat. We love him so much and he is oh so sweet!. Oh, and he makes us laugh when he goes outside and drinks out of the water fountain!

Hunter Green


Adopted 07/14/19



Sage Green


Adopted 07/14/19


We are having so much fun with the boys. They adore each other and play all day. They love to snuggle together in their bed for naps. Sage is such a loving pup. He wants to be held and cuddled all the time, Hunter is fearless and wants to investigate everything! They are polar opposites and it is so much fun introducing new things to them. Right now they love crushed ice cubes, when they hear the ice cube maker in the kitchen they come running and hope they get some. We love spoiling them. I am sure they will bring us joy for many years to come. So glad I randomly checked rescue sites and was lucky enough to find these two wonderful boys.

Emerald Green


Adopted 07/13/19


We renamed Emerald to "Molly" and she is doing great! She acclimated to her new home so well and has already made several road trips and a plane trip to Georgia with us! She loves sleeping with us every night and watching the deer in our yard every morning!

"Cookie"


Adopted 07/02/19


ookie has been a delight and such a great addition to my family! We absolutely love her and she knows it. My daughters spoil her so much and she's been able to make some of her own doggy friends too. Cookie loves sleeping on the couch or cuddling with one of my daughters, as well as enjoys playing catch and racing the girls from room to room! We are so lucky to have her and appreciate what she adds to our family. I've attached a picture of her! Again, we thank DREAM for allowing us to adopt her

Rylie Reindeer


Adopted 07/02/19


Rylie has been such a wonderful addition to our Dachshund Family. The day I picked her up, she melted my heart. Rylie was very well trained and has learned many tricks. Rylie has trained us and is ruling the household. Melody and Dorothy Gale have welcomed her and have picked up on a few of her tricks. Rylie loves to go on walks, and is in great shape for a almost 12 year old. Rylie loves to eat, she scratches her dish at least ten times a day. If she wants your attention she will push your legs till you pick her up. Rylie is a loved by all of us.

Olive Green


Adopted 06/30/19


Olive now named Della is doing wonderful, my twin sister had another dog from y’all Cornelius (we have doggy daycare everyday while we are at work so they can play together) Della is the boss even though Corny is 2 years old, he follows her around except when it come to food then he gets first choice, she still can’t figure out how to walk on a leash she get so excited but get so tangled or when she is done walking she just drops down and refuses to go any further ( does not matter if it is the middle of the road. She is a little lover lots of kisses, she has learner to use the bathroom outside and the only thing she chews on is paper.

Buzz Bodyboard
"Chase"


Adopted 06/21/19


Our family has always wanted a dog. After lots of research and spending time with family and friends with dogs, we knew that a dachshund was the right choice for us! Luckily, we discovered DREAM Rescue. We found a few dogs that we were interested in meeting, but they were either pending adoption or deemed to be not good with kids. The rescue team is wonderful at vetting the temperament of dogs so they could recommend other dogs that may be a fit for our family. That’s when we met Buzz Bodyguard - renamed Chase. He became an instant part of the family the day he came home. He loves to run and play with our children and long snuggles on the couch. We were so very lucky to find the sweetest dog that would bring so much joy to our lives!

Pretzel Pompidou


Adopted 06/03/19


Pretzel is doing very well. He and Dottie, our other mini dachshund rescue, have bonded. He's a loving little boy and we are happy we found each other.

Every dog is different and dachshunds are definitely different. We have had dachshunds for over 50 years. Pretzel has a unique ability. He has managed to get locked in every closet in our house and in any enclosure outside the house. He's so quiet and fast that we didn't notice the first few times and went around calling him. Now, we take a close look before we close any door and there he is. My husband says we should call him Sneaky Pete instead of Pretzel.

Kiwi Green
"Binky-Sue"


Adopted 05/03/19


Binky-Sue (formerly Kiwi Green) is a friendly, playful pup who makes friends wherever she goes and whomever she meets. She looks pretty in decorative collars with flowers and bows. Binky loves to go for walks in her special purple harness, and many neighbors stop to play and say “Hi” to her. She is popular!

She has mastered the art of playing fetch with her favorite ball. Binky is learning to put her toys away, but also puts herself away with her toys! When she isn’t playing, Binky lobes to give kisses and cuddle. Our puppy-baby loves us and our lives are much brighter having her with us.

When we got Binky in May, she was 3 pounds 2 ounces. Now she weighs 5 pounds 8 ounces.

He also looks very handsome in a bowtie and garners attention (which he looooves) from people and dogs alike just about everywhere we go. I can’t imagine going back to life without him. J

Gabe Galaxy


Adopted 03/11/19


Gabe is doing wonderful!! His personality is so big and brings so much laughter and joy to our home. Gabe is very vocal and barks at us when he wants to go outside to potty or eat, so everyone knows when he’s not a happy camper, he’s a diva! He is always getting new toys, as he is hard on the ones he has LOL, and has quite the collection of little t shirts and bow ties already. He has made friends with his roommate Sofie the chihuahua and his poodle cousins Eddie and Bailey. Gabe loves going for his daily walks and enjoys shopping at Petsmart. He even goes for a night out on the town at Axelrad or Heights Biergarten occasionally. Gabe is very snuggly and can always be spotted cuddling with mom on the couch or in bed, usually watching the Kardashians or Game of Thrones. He just recently went on a vacation to grandma’s house while mom was on a trip and he had a grand time, spoiled as always! He loves car rides and is always looking out the window.

We feel like we have had Quincy since he was a pup, he was the doxie we didn't know we were missing.

Sadie Sweater


Adopted 02/02/19


We would love to share! Sadie has been an absolute doll! She has so much energy and is always happy!

A few things to share...

We already had a standard size male who is my shadow "velcro" dog. We were a bit concerned as to how he would accept Sadie in to his home. We kept them on leashes for the first day as a precaution and there were a few anxious moments where he growled and thought about snapping at her.

On the second day, he curled up in his bed and before you know it, Sadie hopped in, snuggled up against him, and went to sleep. From that moment on, there was no problem between them whatsoever.

My male dog, Tut, has always laid on my lap while I worked at my desk. The first day back to work with Sadie in our lives, I picked up Tut to put him on my lap. Sadie wanted up there too and she literally crawled up my leg to my lap! She then proceeded to literally lay on top of Tut lengthwise and went to sleep. He lifted his head to look at me as if to say, "Really, Mom?" and then he went to sleep as well.

Another funny...Sadie loves to sneak a few bites of Tut's food when he isn't looking. We caught her doing it and when we called out her name, she looked up at us as if to say, "Who me?"

They both have a separate crate for sleeping. However, on the third day, after Tut went into his crate, Sadie tried to crawl into it to sleep with him. We redirected her to her own crate where she crawled in. From the very first night here, she has not once whined or cried at night. She has slept the entire night through.

We are so blessed to have her in our lives. She brings joy to all of us and I am convinced that she has wiggled her way into Tut's heart as well as ours.

I hope this is what you are looking for...let me know if you need anything else!
