Maddie Mesa


Adopted 06/02/18


Maddie is the biggest sweetheart! She has brought such joy and love to our household. She is getting along well with her brother Jack, and she's adapting well to her new home. Her favorite things are sun bathing in the yard, napping on the couch with Jack, and playing with her squeaky toys. Jack has been our only dog for quite some time, so we were worried about bringing a new sister home for him, but they get along great! Maddie even taught Jack her begging trick. Maddie is also a great "co-worker" when we work from home. She likes to know what we're working on! Thank you so much for rescuing Maddie and bringing her into our lives. She is a delight and we're thrilled to have her as part of our family.

Daisy Drums

We are getting along beautifully. Praline enjoys the company of our new Momma, Mimi, Aunt Deedee, and Parian. She loves to play with her Aunt and Parian while I do homework in the evenings and sometimes she likes to watch TV with my roommate and her boyfriend during the day. We are learning how the phone and FaceTime works so that we can keep in touch with Mimi! She loves to bark at EVERYONE except for her new family. We recently took a trip to Kisatchie National Forest and discovered Praline loves to dig in the sand and find souvenir rocks to haul home. She likes to have someone to keep her company at home if I have to go somewhere, but she's super good for whoever it might be that hangs out with her. She LOVES to tear up her toys and her new Chaco matching collar and leash with my sandals! Thanks so much to DREAM for connecting us, I can't imagine life without my little nugget running around and snuggling up to me.

I think he was sad to let her go!!! Helen has taken to the doggie door like a champ! After she first used it, she went back and forth (four times) in and out (I think just to make sure it was working). Absolutely no accidents in the house! I have been snuggling with her and she has warmed up quickly! She gets Cheerio treats after she goes potty and she has already learned to go straight to the kitchen cabinet when she comes back in the house. Smart Girl!

Sansa Stark


Adopted 12/30/17


Sansa Stark came into my life unexpectedly. 2016-2017 was a sad time for us - we lost four of our rescued Dachshunds. All are missed, but the saddest, most difficult for me was the loss of beautiful Joy, my best bud ever for about 14 years. A foster failure, she was my protector, constant companion, best friend, funny girl, my love, my Guardian Angel, my heart. After three weeks of vet visits and one week before Christmas, I made the heart wrenching decision to let her go. It still haunts me. It was best for her; gotta love them enough to let them go. My husband, Ron, convinced me to adopt another dog. Long story short, I saw Sansa on the DREAM site and was drawn to her. Adoption formalities completed, Ron drove to Houston to get Sansa on December 30, brought her home and handed her to me. She stared into my eyes and licked my face. Click! A match made in Heaven. Sansa is a perfect fit for me and our family. She gets along well with everyone and is a shy, sweet, laid back, gentle, loving girl. She spends a lot of time with Ron’s Basenji cross puppy, Sara. A quiet little dog, Sansa comes to life at mealtimes and gallops around me excitedly like My Pretty Pony - so cute! She is with me all the time, preferably in my lap. I love her so. We really needed each other. I promised her I will always love her, will always take care of her, and will never leave her. My Beautiful Angel. We make every day count. Funny how it worked out - she rescued me.

After taking him to several adoption events we started to foster Boone and knew he was a keeper for sure. He has helped me personally to take time to sit, relax and just be. My heart is so full of love for him.

Kendrick Klondike


Adopted 09/29/17


Kendrick, the squirrel watcher and the toy hoarder, has found the perfect niche to fall into with his family, the dog boss. He may have been shy and very quiet when he came in to his “foster” family, but no longer. When it comes near time for food, he gives his family a showing of both dance and song. Where a little shy dog once was there being now a social butterfly, he has gained weight and has built himself a fur coat even runway models would be jealous of. When you walk in the house he will shower you with his kisses and when you finally get the chance to sit down and take a breather, he will want to be in your lap right snuggled up tight. A mainstay of his dad’s daily truck rides to Sonic along with his other siblings. He has become a tug of war champion and loves to play chase with his siblings as well. Kendrick became quickly loved by what was supposed to be his temporary family, they just could not let him go, and he loved them back just as quickly easily charming anyone that merely glimpses at him.

Update 11/6/17

Lolly has settled in well. She no longer sleeps in her bed at night, she sleeps in the king sized bed with Sampson and myself under her own blanket. She has been such a joy to us. She had an ear infection last week but a trip to the vet and some medicine she's all better. She sleeps a lot, but I think it's because she's older. But all in all she is loved. I sent a video of her after I get home from work. She's happy to see me! She has her crabby moments but most of the time she's a sweetie.

Update 9/15/17

I picked up Lolly today. She's home. She had dinner and ran around a little. She's now napping in her new bed.

She has adjusted well and now sleeps with me and Sampson most nights. She’s a sweetie and definitely loves to eat. I’ve been feeding her carrots for treats and she loves them. All in all she has been a great addition to the family.

She rarely barks and is so social with all of my roommates up at school. I have attached some pictures of her life lately! At night she burrows under her blanket or under the covers if she sleeps in my bed with me. I could not have asked for anything more!

I am not sure that I can express the love we have for our little “Georgie” Springer.

Unfortunately our home was affected by Harvey and took in 4 feet of water. George had his first trip on a boat in my purse. But he has given us so much joy. He rides with us to take the kids and pick the kids up everyday for school. And of course I had to get him his own seat so he can see out the window. To sum it up, we are so thankful for this spunk of happiness and playfulness. Thank you so much Dream Rescue!

TJ Tahoe
"Toby"


Adopted 07/28/17


After the sudden loss of our beloved 10-year-old Eddie, a dapple dachshund, his rescue brother Freddie went into a deep depression. We start searching dachshund rescue sites and pored over the options. Our big break, however, was when we went to the Dog Show and saw so many handsome and lovely dachshunds waiting for their forever home. We took Freddie with us (he's a mix), and he perked up the instant he saw dachshunds. We had a home inspection by another rescue group, so we were pre-approved on that front, and DREAM were so attentive to our needs. Though Freddie thought he had found his brother at the show, the smart folks at DREAM wanted us to look at one being fostered who was the littermate of the one Freddie liked. A few days later we showed up to meet "TJ," a perky, lovable, bundle of energy with an insatiable need to be held and loved. It was love at first sight, and though he had such a wonderful foster home, we left with him and hoped he would get along with our 17-year-old cat. He had a foster cat that he loved, and sure enough, at our house not only did Freddie welcome him with open paws but also the old cat, who has NEVER paid attention to anything or anyone but his humans, bonded with Toby (TJ's new name). The bonding on all sides continues, and we are so blessed Toby is ours forever. At night our cat snuggles with him wherever he is, and when dad needs a nap, he has three furry brothers to help him. We have been most impressed by the matching that DREAM did for us - Toby's foster mom knew just the kind of home he needed, and he is the perfect fit for us. Let DREAM help bring love and happiness into your life.

Just wanted to give you an update as to how Ms. Daisy is doing after being with us now for about a year. First of all, she is LOVED more than you can ever imagine. She has gained a little weight (about 2 lbs. which the vet said is good). She visits the vet twice/yr. and is doing well with the exception of losing sight in one eye, due to age, the vet told me. I've included a couple of pics of Daisy and Peaches (who is deaf) so you can see that Daisy is well taken care of. Unfortunately, because of my income level and my own age, these will probably be the last "kids" that I will have, but they have both been a joy.

This little guy has brought our family so much joy! He is so much fun and keeps us very entertained… he loves playing with his big dog sister Sadie and makes sure she gets lots of exercise. All 4 of his cat siblings have grown quite fond of him as well and they like to play chase and tag with him too. His favorite game is tug of war which he never seems to get tired of and we’ve been working a lot on fetch too. He does great at going after the toy and bringing it back… but we’re still working on the “handing it over” part. We sure do love him and can’t imagine our lives without him!

April she has fully adopted me as her job in life. She has only one issue in that she growls at the other two dachsies whenever they get close. That said she willing play with them in the yard. Go figure.

Mini Cooper is by far the quintessential dachshund, having all the best qualities of the breed. She is exceptionally loving and dedicated to Jan. It is so wonderful that your organization was able to save her.

We would like to thank DREAM for giving us a chance to love and spoil Sparky. He is adjusting quite well and even though he has been in the family such a short time, he thinks he rules the roost. And sometimes he does!

I have added a couple of pictures. The first one is Sparky after being with us a couple of months. The second is one taken about a week ago of Sparky and his fur brother, Petie. No your eyes did not deceive you - Petie is a ferret.

Once again, thank you for our wonderful fur baby and for all you do at DREAM Dachshund Rescue.

Clyde Campbell
"Brownie"


Adopted 05/13/17


Brownie and Strafe are doing great and are so very loved! They really are complete sweethearts.

The first night at home, Strafe wouldn't come out from under the dining table. Now he loves to be held and cuddled by family and is slowly becoming brave enough to approach guests in our home. He has done very well with his vet visits and is not afraid to be examined. The change is dramatic; he really is learning to trust.

Brownie is an adorable cuddle-bug who shed his nerves almost immediately. He loves to play and be held! The pug part of his nature shows in his curly tail and sideways run.

Both dogs enjoy playing with their toys and like to "gladiator fight" with each other until they're worn out and need naps. They also love to play in the sunshine in our backyard. They're not sure about harnesses and walks, though!

The transition of adding the pups to our family was pretty much seamless, and they've added so much to our lives. We're blessed to have them.

We're so grateful to Dream for helping us find the newest members of our family.

Rather than buy from a breeder, I highly recommend adopting from DREAM Dachshund Rescue.

Bella is settling in nicely. She has abandonnent issues and doesn't like for me to be out of her sight. I think issues are getting better. She sleeps with us and is a good sleeper. She has put on a few more pounds and is very active and healthy. Loves her toys and will even fetch her pink sock monkey. Loves her treats and has learned to hang out under the table when my 1 yr old grandson eats. Loves the grandkids and is pretty protective of "her boys". We think she's pretty special and love her a lot.

Brewster Bicuspid
"Brewster McCloud"


Adopted 03/17/17


Brewster Bicuspid has finally found his fur-ever home with the Nixon clan and we are not sure who is happier, him or us! Brewster’s loving disposition wins over everyone he meets, even the timid little wire hair DREAM rescue named Mattie Moo. These two play together, lay together and generally consider each other to be their new best friend. Brewster has even stolen the heart of the Italian Greyhound pound puppy that has occupied the position of Queen Bee for years and years. Brewster sleeps well, eats well, goes outside well, has had no accidents inside, is leash trained and just an overall bundle of cuteness. He is definitely the most laid back dog we have ever had. Funny how a new ball of fur can steal your heart and add to the warmth of a home. Look at Brewster in these pictures; a pretty lad resting on a soft dog bed or a crazy boy lying upside down in a too-small bed without a care in the world. We call him Brewster McCloud.

Thank you DREAM for taking them in and loving on them until they find their fur-ever home.

Even though we had her for such a short time, she made a place in our hearts. Thank you for allowing us to adopt Harriet.

We've only had Biscuit about 3 months but feel that we've had them both forever. Thank you for the opportunity to meet this little girl. Just wanted you to know that she is thriving and we are thrilled to have her join our family! By the way, don't let this sleeping photo fool you. They can be quite an active and noisy "duo" at times!

Lasso, who will forever be known as a Tater Tot, has settled in with his family very well. His family always has a fun foster sibling for him to play with, but Lasso needs no other to keep his family entertained, he can be a one-man entertainment show. But as soon as Lasso expends all his energy and needs a rest he will fight for a spot to snuggle with his mom, because at heart he is a momma’s boy. A few of his favorite past times are keeping his mom busy everyday by bringing in all the sticks and mud he can find through the dog door and bothering his feline brother. Lasso always has a smile on his face and brings the sunshine into any room he walks into. He often wears his bowtie, and looks truly like a gentleman which is who he truly is on the inside. He loves going on daily truck rides with his dad and siblings. Lasso is extremely precious to his family and any one who comes across his smiling face thinks the same, that he is a precious fur ball of joy.

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.

So - thank you thank you thank you for these two little bundles of pure joy that have become our newest family members. 😍

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"

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!

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!

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.

"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


08/23/17 Update

Max is truly my best friend. He follows me like a shadow, gives lots of kisses, and is just an all-around "Daddy's boy". Matter of fact, he's snuggled up so close to me right now that I'm using him as an armrest while typing this email. He loves every minute of it.

I don't know what I'd do without him. He's been my saving grace on more than a few occasions. Best dog ever!


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.

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 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!

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!

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 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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

Collin Coppertone


Adopted 06/26/16
Deceased 06/26/16


DREAM rescued Collin on June 10th and took him straight to our vet to have a very painful eye removed (see Buphthalmos). Due to excessive bleeding, he needed a blood transfusion during the surgery, but he made it through. Collin didn't seem to be healing properly after the surgery, though, and two weeks later he underwent another procedure to clean out the wound, which appeared to be infected. Everything seemed to have gone well, and Collin was back to his happy self. On Saturday June 25th, the wound opened and Collin started bleeding profusely. His fosters rushed him to the emergency vet, applying pressure to the wound the whole way. He received a transfusion and the vets were able to revive him. He remained stable Saturday night. By this time, we knew Collin had a clotting disorder. The vets were giving him platelets to try to lower his clotting times. We were confident he was going to make it through this.

Collin's fosters, Brenda and Annie, went to visit him Sunday morning. He seemed so happy to see them. Brenda and Annie decided after going through all this, there was no way they could let him be adopted by someone else. They were going to keep him. But in less than 10 minutes after they left the emergency vet, we received the heartbreaking news that Collin had started bleeding again and his little heart had stopped. They were unable to revive him. Such a tragic ending to this sweet baby's story.

Our hearts go out to Brenda and Annie for the loss of their special little boy.

My heart is broken after reading the story of Collin Coppertone. Brenda and Annie, you are so wonderful for giving this angel so much love and good care. Collin loved you two so much. He is in Heaven and will be waiting on you two someday to be with him through eternity. Bless DREAM and all the wonderful fosters and caregivers who donate their time and give so much love to these precious, innocent angels that we all love so dearly. My prayers are with Collin and Brenda and Annie at this time.

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

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

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.

Adopted 05/17/16
Deceased 05/14/18


Ellie was a senior who was being treated for heartworms when we adopter her. She recovered from heartworms. Unfortunately, she acquired a cough recently. It became worse within a week. So concerned, we took her to our vet. He was amazed she was alive as her heart was so enlarged it was pressed on her trachea and lungs. Our vet said that she should join our others over the rainbow bridge as there was nothing he could do that would prolong her life more than a few weeks and at that point in time she was struggling for every breath. We cherish the time she was with us. She is missed terribly by her sister Charley. I could go on and on about her personality, the crazy things she did to make our life full of love.

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."

Adopted 04/09/16


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 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.

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.

Copper Chute

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!

Sadie Satin

Our sweet Sadie passed away yesterday. Richard was walking her and Peanut when another dog approached them. Richard was able to pick up Peanut and Sadie was still on her leash. She was really scared and managed to get out of her harness. The dog chased her and Sadie was hit by a car. She passed away instantly. We are so heartbroken.

She was the sweetest dog I have ever met. We had the pleasure of being a part of her life. We miss her so so much. She brightened our lives and filled our hearts with joy. We will receive her ashes in about two weeks. We are so thankful to DREAM for saving her and allowing us to foster and adopt her.


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.

I am so blessed to be a part of your team – but most importantly a part of Bonzo’s new life.

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

Major Moncrief


Adopted 12/14/15
Deceased 12/20/15


Major passed over the Rainbow Bridge this morning. His condition had declined and I believed he was suffering. I decided to let him be in peace. Cindy and Brenda met me at the vet, and I whispered my goodbye in his precious little ear. A part of me died today with that innocent young life being taken away. I'm overwhelmed by sadness. He followed me everywhere. I can't believe I'm never going to get to hold him again or see his precious smile. I'm so painfully sad I can't even breathe. My whole family is absolutely heartbroken.

Major contracted Distemper even though he had received all his puppy vaccines. Our hearts go out to Marcie and her family who did everything they could to save this sweet baby boy.

Poochie is the most remarkable dog ever. She plays with Lucy all the time, is a good watch dog, knows to go on the elevator, and sleeps on one side of me with Lucy on the other. She even walks on a leash better than Lucy. We could not have found a better dog.

Daisy Michonne
"Daisy Grace"


Adopted 12/08/15


We love Daisy so much. She is so attached to my mom and me. She only had accidents in the house the first day, no more since then. She has her preferred spot in the back yard and we have a carpet in the garage for the rainy days. We praise her and give her a special treat for going outside to do her business. She is such a good car rider we are taking her to San Antonio for Christmas to met the rest of the family. I got her a pink kennel and she sleeps in that at night. She doesn't cry at all. I think she feels more secure in it with her blanket and favorite toys. She is the perfect dog in my opinion. She hasn't even barked one time. Mom ran around through the garage and rang the front door bell twice and she looked me and my dad like who is going to get it? Didn't even bark at it! I think when she finally does it's going to scare us!

Thank you, Marcie, for all you and your group does!

Our hearts are breaking for Maggie and her adopters. We thought little Maggie had only a touch of kennel cough, but it turned out to be something much worse. Maggie ended up at the emergency vet with pneumonia, most likely a result of Distemper. Maggie got to know the love of her adopters for only a short while. Such a sad ending for such a sweet girl.

Our hearts are breaking for this little girl and her family.

"Lucy Looooooooooo" as we refer to her is an absolutely perfect addition to our family. She fit right in with her brothers (2 at the time)immediately, becoming known also as "The Diva" amongst "The Boys". She was only with Gyp a short time before he crossed the Rainbow Bridge, but they became fast friends. Now she and her brother, Frank, are inseparable, and she missed him terribly when he had to be hospitalized for a couple days. Now that he's back home again and on the mend, they are back to their old shenanigans and shoulder-to-shoulder, side-by-side. I know they are looking forward to warmer, drier weather and spending time in the big yard and in the barn with their Dad. Suzanne, and everyone at DREAM, thank you so much for Lucy and for all you do for the doxies out there!!

It took her a while, but she has gone from being very shy around people to protecting her new home. We have found friends with fur babies her size so she has had play dates. Sophie is a wonderful traveler too. She has taken trips with us to Oklahoma and Louisiana. And she loves going to PetSmart.

"Cayenne"

Mazzi Malbec


Adopted 10/08/15


Mazzi has been doing really well. She is definitely the queen of whatever and wherever she is. She is such a cuddler – she always likes to be snuggled up either right next to you or on your lap. And she’s not a morning person… she sleeps in late, or goes right back to sleep after she goes outside. She has been great around all of our family and friends, and even around strangers. She has an awful lot of love to give. We’ve taken her to my in-laws, and she runs the place there, even keeping their two Labs in line. On our land she thinks she’s a big bad country dog – riding in the tractor, digging up armadillo holes, and getting in to most sorts of trouble. We’ve even taken her to the softball park, and it’s amazing how curious and friendly she is to the kids and adults alike. We just have to watch out for all the candy that the kids want to slip to her. :) She loves laying in the sunshine, and she loves to run – I’ve never seen a dog that will literally run full out speed laps around our living room all by herself – nothing chasing her or playing with her. Strangest thing. We’ve kept her very active, so she is back down to a slimmer and healthy weight. We have noticed that she does suffer from a bit of separation anxiety, although we can’t always pinpoint the cause – sometimes we can be gone for only an hour and she will act out, while other times we can be gone for 5 hours and she’s perfectly fine. Not sure if she was always like that, or if the surrender caused it a bit. Still hoping that over time she will get over that. We’ve also been working on some training – she definitely was not previously trained – when you tell her “no” about something, she just looks back at you for a moment and then goes right back at it, or if you want her to come back inside, etc , she seems to have no concept. But we are starting to work through that – she does know how to “shake paw”, that seems to have been the one thing she was trained on – and it’s cute! I hope she loves us as much as we love her. I always wonder if she thinks about her previous home, especially since that was the only home she had ever known. I’m used to fostering pups that never really had a home or the love they deserved… with Mazzi I sometimes wonder if she still hopes that one day she’ll be going back home. It’s still hard for me to understand how someone just gives up a pet, especially because Mazzi is really such a good and loving dog, but I’m sure they had their reasons. But we could never give her up… she quickly made herself a permanent and loved part of the family!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Georgia Peach


Adopted 09/18/15
Deceased 02/05/16


It is with a very heavy heart that I have to say that Georgia Peach passed away yesterday. It was totally unexpected. She wasn't showing any signs that something was wrong until 1:00 pm yesterday. She started vomiting and then she just laid down and didn't want to get up. I rushed her to the vet and they did blood work and found that her liver enzymes were elevated. They put her on an IV to try and flush out her system in case it was something she ate. I left her there so they could monitor her overnight, but they called me at 5:00 pm and said that she had passed. They said that she started going down quickly as she was having trouble maintaining her body heat and started bleeding internally. Unfortunately the vet had no definite answers as to what caused it.

Although we only had her for 5 short months we cherished every moment we had with her as looking at her sweet face you couldn't help but smile. She was always ready to give kisses or receive belly rubs. Georgia Peach will be truly missed by us all.

We extend our deepest sympathy to the Serda family for the sudden and unexpected loss of their sweet Georgia.

Quincy loves his forever home with his new mom and dad. We enjoy going on walks in the evening together. Quincy is absolutely perfect! Our hearts are full.

He's a wonderful TV companion and loves running in the backyard and trying to chase the cats (the cats have him figured out so they seldom run). He's just the calmest dog (unlike Delaney). We love him so much, he's made our family complete! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Lou Lou Liriope
"Penny"


Adopted 08/28/15


Hi to all my human and smaller friends back at DREAM!

This is "Penny", but you all knew me by my maiden name, Lu Lu Liriope. I just wanted to drop you all a note and tell you I'm doing well and am feeling right at home with my new fur-ever family, The Philpotts! I have two new big brothers, Louie and Max, who are wire-haired dachshunds just like me. They are a little older and bigger, so everyone thinks I'm a puppy (which suits me fine)!

When I first arrived, I had no trouble telling everyone what a DIVA I am. I didn't have to say much as they all pretty much knew. I took over the big dog bed and tried to take over the big feeding dishes too. My new big brothers didn't know what to think! They seemed a little upset. Mom wasn't going to stand for that either. I got my own little princess bed and separate food bowls. She also gave me a new pink rhinestone collar, leash and harness so now I'm as stylish as a Diva should be.

My brothers are getting used to me and even let me sleep with them sometimes. Mom says they probably don't realize I've snuck in the bed behind them (that's me with Max)!

We do fun things in my new home. We go on long walks every day, which is great for my lithe figure.

We go to the dog park. I LOVE CAR RIDES and looking out the window (that's me and Louie)! My blonde locks fly in the wind so Dad called me "Farrah" for some reason.

At the Dog park, we go swimming and get to sniff all around the park. I love to sniff and mom says I've a nose for trouble (and vermin).

So please know I've found a good home and that I'm feeling loved. Mom and Dad say my brothers and I might get to come visit soon at one of the next DREAM events, so see you soon! I can relax now and get some beauty rest (in my princess bed).

Love,
Penny

We are so happy to have Trevor! He is so easy-going and has settled in so quickly and easily! We’ve had a few trips to our vet to follow-up on his previous dental surgery but after another course of antibiotics, he is doing well! He’s done a great job of adapting to his new sister April and two cat cousins in the household. He’s a sweet older gentleman and we already love him very much. Today he went for his first outing with his dad to Lowe’s and Petsmart and did just fine. We are looking forward to many years of spoiling him :) I’ve attached a picture of him cuddling with April during the rainstorms last weekend. She seems so much happier having him around as her companion and brother. He’s a wonderful addition to our family.

Caramel Rydell


Adopted 08/20/15
Deceased 06/03/16


I wanted to thank you for giving me the chance to love and care for Caramel. I know it was difficult for her foster mom to let her go. I tried to send updates on occasion. I hated to have to tell her the bad news. Caramel was a fighter. She was also very loving.

It's kind of a funny story how Caramel came into my life. I was at her foster mom's house to adopt Bobo, and Caramel just wanted in my lap. I played with her and petted her. She chose me. I guess she knew she would get everything she needed and wanted. I wanted to adopt her with Bobo, but she was still having medical issues and was not yet available to adopt. When she was finally treated for all her issues, I was told that she would not be adoptable. I was heartbroken since I fell in love with her the first time met her. In August I received a message from hr foster asking if I still wanted Caramel. My reply was "When can I come get her?!" The very next day Caramel came to my house to join my other seniors. She was my smallest, but had the attitude that she was the boss.

I thank DREAM and her foster mom for giving me the opportunity to adopt little Caramel. I miss her very much. I cannot replace her, but I'd like to give another senior a second chance to feel loved and just a bit spoiled.

Isaac is such a joy! He is sweet, playful, and so funny. He fits right in to our family. He loves his hound dog sister and she loves him. He thinks squeaky toys are the best thing ever. He can fetch. Isaac tires himself out, then loves to take naps on the top of the couch. We are so happy that Isaac is in our lives. He brightens every day. Thank you so much for bringing us together. Our little blue baby is so special.

Sasha is doing really well. She is really active and she's getting along well with Penny. She's warmed right up (I think I've had my entire face cleaned at least three times already). She also went outside and went to the restroom without any reservation. She's explored the house and gave the low IKEA sofa a paws up!

We love her; she is a real joy. She is getting more and more comfortable with us and her personality is really starting to show. Rest assured, we will fuss over her and she will likely be spoiled. She deserves it; she has had a tough life.

We couldn't be more amazed and delighted with his trust and love. It took a lot less time than anticipated. Patience, love and doggie treats will bring Rudy around.


Bacon is doing so well. He now joins us in bed on his own. The smart little guy learned to use the custom ramp to get up on the bed. My two dogs really took him under their wings. So great to see him relax and wag his tail. He is a sweet puppy!

For Christmas, my boyfriend bought me a visit to a local veterinary ophthalmologist to look at her eyes. Sadly, the vet said she is mostly blind, but gave me some antioxidants for her take to help preserve the vision that she has left. She is so loved. I wanted to update you on the news and send some recent pics of her. I might be in the market for her to have a friend come July. She LOVES snuggling with other dogs. I hate leaving her, so she basically goes with me anywhere I can take her and a few places where I know no one will mind if she's there! She says hello! 🐾🐶 My mom also adopted Rex from DREAM.

Sophia Sleighbell
"Boerne"


Adopted 07/20/15


Sophia is blending wonderfully with resident K9s. Last night she tolerated a bath and ear wash in her ears. Dillon volunteered to get in the tub with her for moral support. Monday night she got on and off the big bed several times then slept on a comforter in the corner of the bedroom. Last night she decided maybe the big bed was a good place to sleep. She is a good influence on the boys during walks since she prefers moving on down the sidewalk over stopping to sniff and pee on things. She is wise enough to give Granny Dill wide clearance, Dillon and Brice LOVE playing with her, and Brice especially loves Dillon having someone else to keep him entertained so Brice can have some peace and quiet. She hasn't shown much interest in toys or helping Brice excavate his hole deeper and deeper.

We are so happy that we decided to adopt little Zoey! She fist came to me as a foster with toy aggression. I am happy to say that she is pretty much over that, she now will bring me her toys for me to play with her. She also has what they call Color Dilution Alopecia. That pretty much means she had no hair, as you can see in the first picture. In the second picture she has hair. She is so pretty! We did a regimen of fish protein dog food, coconut oil and vinegar (with the mother) in her water and she grew hair. She doesn’t have all of it yet but more comes in all the time. She is so lovable and such a joy. I am used to having big dogs and I wasn’t so sure about having one so little. Well not to worry about that; her personality takes care of her being so little. She can actually get one of my big dogs to get off the couch so she can have her spot!!

We are taking all three on a camping trip in November so are working on leashes and walking together. Pia will have to be carried in a sling most of the time as she gets tired quickly but loves to go along! I’m sure we will have some anxiety issues as everything will be new but they will love the new places and smells. Can’t wait!

Britney Brighton


Adopted 07/04/15


Britney has fit right in with us. She is so calm and sweet it seems like we've always had her. We have several cats and she actually does really good with them. They were a bit apprehensive of her at first but now they've settled in and don't seem to mind her at all. She seems really happy here and we're happy to have her. She goes with us everywhere and everybody that meets her falls in love with her too. She has a certain way with people that make them love her right away. It even worked on the cats, which to us was unbelievable. Especially with how fast they were able to accept her. I want to thank dream from the bottom of my heart that you guys were able to save her! She had it pretty rough for the first year of her life but now she can look forward to much love and pampering.

I am so happy to report our family was reunited with our fur babies yesterday! We are so grateful they were available to come back to us. I want to thank Marcie and everyone involved with DREAM organization. These wonderful people have taken such good care of my sweeties for the past 3 months trying to find them loving new families. The dedication you have is overwhelming and beyond impressive. Thank you for all you do. You change the lives of so many doggies and humans doing what you do. I'm beyond blessed, and they seem so relaxed and happy to be back home. Our first night back together was so fantastic.

Well, we got 'Olive' home, and it's like she's been here all her life. Of course we walked in the door, and Jerry immediately got a piece of roast and fed it to her! Needless to say, she doesn't let him out of her sight. We may be in the market for another if the romance isn't so exclusive. Thank you again for the match. Jerry renamed her 'Sweety Pie' and she comes to when called.

We thought you might like to see these pics of Hershey. He got a new collar yesterday that we think suits him perfectly! He had his yearly check-up a few weeks ago and he is very healthy. Its hard to believe he has been with us for a year already.

We recently had a lot of house guests and I was a little concerned because of how timid he has always been but he really has come a long way. It only took a few hours before he let my nephew pet him and then pick him up the very next day.

Adopted 05/02/15


We are so excited and happy to have Marty. She is doing great. We have taken several neighborhood walks and she has had lots of fun checking everything out. She let me put her in a dress!! She loves cuddling with me and is usually cool with napping with me. My heart is full and I'm absolutely certain this is one of the best decisions I've ever made!!

We had purchased a few toys before we got her and she seems to love them all! We took her for a walk around our neighborhood and she was so good! She got a little tired toward the end of the walk, but she posted through it. She came home, got a big drink of water and went to sleep on her dog bed. We wore her out! She, much like me, loves to cuddle on the couch and nap!! She also likes to sit in the backyard watching the airplanes fly over. She is settling in so well and we absolutely love and adore her!!!

I just can't express how much I appreciate DREAM and the services that it provides. I love knowing that you guys are there when/if I need you! It's a great comfort. The adoption process was so smooth and effortless! I wouldn't hesitate to adopt again.

She goes to sleep with one of my daughters and wakes up with the other. Love her!

We called our friend, Marcie Lawless, and asked if there was anything we could do for DREAM, and of course there always is . We went over and picked up Little Miss Dodie from the shelter. She made us laugh. She was so sweet and looked so much like our Bailey. We decided then and there that she was a gift coming to us to keep Bailey's spirit alive and bring us joy. We have changed her name to Lily being Good Friday and all. Again, we love the joy DREAM brings.

Robin Raindrop


Adopted 04/12/15


Hello DREAM,

Here is the update on our little miss rockin’ Robin. We love her so much: When I saw Robin on DREAM and AdoptAPet.com, I was immediately hooked. She has the kindest eyes and the softest little ears. She has the face and paws of a lab and the body of a Dach. Robin is the sweetest little girl. There really is not a mean bone in her body. Some of her favorite things include: going for walks in the grass and exploring, her Gator toys, chewing rawhides, giving kisses, her KONG bed, jumping and sprinting to the door, her gray blanket, getting her picture taken, and having her belly rubbed. She is adjusting well to her new home.

We did end up keeping the name Robin Raindrop. It is perfectly fitting, as we got her in the Spring, we came across a robin at our apartment complex just the day before she arrived, and it was raining the day we got her. She really does make our family complete. We LOVE that Little Miss Rockin’ Robin!

Thank you so much for such a great adoption experience!

Tigger
"Zeus"


Adopted 04/10/15


I wanted to give this little guy some time to open up before I sent in a testimony about him. I read up on Tigger’s other family members and noticed how his brother Zeus really didn’t take to his name. As I preferred Zeus over Tigger I tried it out. Much to my surprise, Zeus seems to be the name that fits this little guy. As you all know, this dog was afraid of his own shadow, any noises and certainly every quick movement made around him. On the day Zeus came home, it was quite the ordeal to get his leash off of him (picture a bucking bull). The mere sight of a leash or harness would send him running and hiding for hours. I was finally able to scoop him up and get the harness on him and out the door we went. After a solid 10 minutes of sitting in the driveway and him realizing nothing was going to hurt him, we embarked on our first walk. With eyes as wide open as possible and his tail on warp speed, Zeus enjoyed his first adventure outdoors. Flash forward two months and I have a running partner. I’m estimating that he’s down a solid two pounds and in fantastic shape as we average 2.5-3 miles per day now. Zeus is still scared to visit the backyard by himself or use the doggie door but overall, he is far more curious around new things/people than he is scared. He is perfectly house trained and enjoys his selection of sleeping options. This pup simply loves to snuggle and have his ears rubbed; he’s even an angel when it’s time for a bath.

We adopted Ms. Devine in March and the first week was horrendous, she growled at us constantly and gave the cats fits. However, with patience she settled down, we'd been warned she wasn't good with other dogs, cats and kids...she's great with all!! As a matter of fact, I'm in negotiations with the wife now to get another DREAM DACHSUND!! We can't imagine life without her!!! Thank you DREAM DACHSUND!!!

We had adopted Sampson S'mores in July and were not sure how Delaney would welcome another dog, but we decided to try and it's been wonderful. Delaney loves Sampson as much as we do.

Adopted 03/16/15


3/15/15 Morning

We had a really good night last night. Fenny got a little anxious when I went to pick up our carry out order for supper. Gilman said he looked all over for me and whimpered, but he was fine once I returned. He slept in the bed right next to me all night. He slept well and stayed in one place all night. He already had breakfast and went out to potty. Right now he is chewing on his rawhide bone.

3/15/15 Afternoon

Today has been exceptional. Fenny made the road trip exceedingly well. We've been home a little over an hour. He met my son without barking, and ate his supper, then went potty in the fenced yard. We are definitely falling in love.

Thank you for all the good work you have done with Fenny and for all the love you have showered upon him. He's a wonderful little guy and we are delighted to be his forever family.


Skye Sweetheart
"Gracie Girl"


Adopted 03/16/15


From the moment that Skye, now Gracie Girl, came into our home for the meet and greet she made a huge impression. This was my husband and my first experience with a rescue organization so we were unaware of what to expect. Well she came in tail wagging, giving kisses to everyone including her new 95 pound standard poodle brother, Dallas, and seemed to just say "Well, I'm home". We did meet and greet with two other precious DREAM babies but we kept coming back to Skye. We made our decision and called her foster mother to let her know we wanted to adopt Skye. I picked her up and brought her home and she immediately took over the house. She acted like she had always lived here. Our first evening, my husband and I just kept looking at each other and saying "Boy, this was really easy". She is full of personality, lovely and sweet. The first night she slept in our bed with her new brother Beau, another mini dachshund, and was an angel all night. The second day, she already had the routine down. We are so glad that we chose to adopt a dog in need- she already is a wonderful, much loved member of our family. Thank you Tena for the obvious care and training while at your home!!!!! Thank you Dream Dachshund Rescue for caring for these amazing little dogs and giving them a second chance at a wonderful life.

Archie Alpine
"Duncan Archibald"


Adopted 02/26/15


3/7/15

Duncan's a wild man. Always ready to play and a ton of fun. He loves to go for walks where he runs fast enough to keep his marathon-training owners out of breath. Between the full body motion tail wags, stuffed toy tug-o-wars, and attempts to rile up the neighbor's chihuahuas every time he passes their window, it's been non-stop party. And Duncan is friends with everyone. He stops neighbors in their tracks, greeting their dogs while receiving compliments on what a fine-looking and great-acting dachshund he is. We can't help but agree.


2/28/15

Hans and I decided to expand Archie's name to Duncan Archibald. That way he gets to keep his intake name while also having a name that comes from his new family. We'll be calling him Duncan, but feel free to refer to him with whichever name feels right to you.

We're all very happy with how smoothly the transition is going so far. As you can tell from the attached picture, Duncan has had enough fun to need a hard midday nap or two to recharge. More pictures to come, including awake ones if I can be agile enough with a camera to capture something other than a super-happy black and tan blur!


2/27/15

I'm happy to say I signed the adoption paperwork and brought Archie Alpine home with me last night. He's been very curious of the new surroundings and super well-behaved. And he got some good sleep last night too (see attached picture).

Many thanks.

Bobby Basil


Adopted 02/14/15


I just wanted to let you know that Bobby is doing really well. I brought him to work with me today because I knew it was going to be a slow day. He's doing so great! He's really coming out of his shell. He loves meeting all the new people. There's also an office cat and he does great with her! He must have been around cats at some point as he acts like she's just one of the dogs. She actually would probably really like a friend to play with. None of our other dogs will play with her, but I bet Bobby will in the not too distant future :o) At home he's doing really well too. Like you said, he likes to lay around and snuggle, and with the cold weather, we've been doing a lot of that! Sam and Bobby get along really well. They were laying together today and Bobby had his head on Sam's back. No issues with the two of them whatsoever, though I didn't think there would be!

She is an absolute sweetheart! She is going to keep Moose in shape running around the house. We bought her some new toys and we are all having fun playing with them!

Thanks again for helping me through this process. Cleo approves! I never see cardinals in my yard and one visited today. I like to think it was Cleo welcoming Chelsea!

Elizabeth Elf


Adopted 01/31/15


February 18, 2015

We have had Elizabeth Elf for 2 1/2 weeks now. She is back with her sister, Emerson. When Elizabeth got to our house, Emerson was SO excited!! She nearly jumped out of my arms to get to Elizabeth. She started licking her face, her ears, her paws. It was the sweetest thing I had ever seen! Elizabeth has made herself right at home. We adopted Emerson in December and kept watching the website and Elizabeth was still available and had not been adopted in January. So we called DREAM and were able to adopt Elizabeth, too. How lucky we are!

These girls are such a happy pair. They love, love, love being together. They play together, eat together, sleep together and they have to be touching each other when they are sitting or sleeping. They run around together in the back yard and roll around in the grass. They even go out together to potty. They have brought so much joy to our lives. They are such affectionate and loving little doggies!! I thought things were going to be so sad after we lost our 14 1/2 year old dachshund.

I had no idea there were any doggies that could ever make us as happy as she did! We call Emerson "Emmy" and Elizabeth "Little Bit" because of her small size. As I've said before, thank you DREAM Dachshund for bringing such joy and such precious little animals into our family! We are SO grateful!!!!! And thank you for providing so much for these precious dachshunds, the best dogs in the world!!


Edwin Elf


Adopted 01/29/15


November 16, 2016

So much has happened since we adopted Edwin Elf in January of 2015.

First, we got the news in August that he is 100% heartworm free! He has so much energy and vitality and we can tell he really does feel good.

We moved across Sugar Land 3 weeks ago and Edwin helped with all the packing and supervising the movers. He immediately got to work in the new house protecting us from cats and squirrels and making sure that the entire neighborhood was peed on so all dogs and cats would know he's in charge.

At first he was a little lost in the house and wasn't really recognizing it as home when we got back from walks but this week he settled in. A few days ago we found a park just a 3 minute car ride away. We went on a long family walk there yesterday and he took his place between me an my husband as we patrolled the new territory. When we got back home he recognized it and started talking as we pulled into the garage. When we entered he ran around barking and jumping in and out of his bed. Ahhh there's no place like home!

Edwin has changed our lives in so many way. He's really a part of the family and the best part is that we know that he knows that he is home, loved, safe and secure.

Thank you again for rescuing Edwin and approving us to be his parents!

February 6, 2015

Here's an update on Edwin. He is doing really well. He's a really good dog and he learns quickly. It's only been a week but I think he's starting to figure out that he's the only dog, and his life is turning into a really fun one. He goes on long neighborhood walks every day. We took him to Memorial Park last Sunday and he loved it. This afternoon I'll be leaving work early and we're going to the dog park in Sugar Land.

He has found several cool places to burrow, he is eating well and 95% of the time asks to go out and 5% of the time we figure it out so there have only been a few accidents. Not bad! He moped around for a couple of days after he got here, but now he's wagging his tail and smiling all the time.

The other evening we were watching The Dog Whisperer and when the dogs on TV started barking Edwin was up at full attention barking with them. We shushed him and he quieted down but spent the entire hour with his eyes glued to the TV... except during the commercials. So I'm now convinced that he was watching!

The best part of having Edwin is how much love and life he adds to our little family. He is a joy, and of course I think he's the smartest, cutest dog in the world! Did I mention he likes to watch TV?! LOL! Here's a picture of him with his favorite blanket.

According to his shot records, today is Wink’s 1st birthday! He is amazing and doing so fabulous! He sits, lays down and stays on command! Little dude! AND he is the absolute rock star at the dog park! He and Echo are BEST BUDDIES. They do everything together and absolutely love being together. So far, not one single issue between them... not with food, toys, affection or anything! Echo is pretty awesome too! She has taught him “how to be” and he so follows her lead! I think she is his therapy dog!

February 12, 2015 Update

I cannot tell you how much we love this little guy! He is doing fabulous and is beginning to really show his personality. He hasn’t had any accidents in the house (knock on wood) and is already sitting and waiting like Echo does when we feed him.

It's really cute, he does every single thing she does almost exactly! And they wrestle and play and sleep all mixed up with each other! Its like doggie twister over here!

I just wanted to thank you again!


Dudley Drumstick


Adopted 01/24/15


Hi everyone! It’s Julie and Doug back with another adoption story. This little fella is our newest member of our family. Dudley has been with us for four days now. After much discussion over email and phone calls, he and his foster mom Bonnie set up a meet and great at our house last Saturday. We were anxious to see how Dudley and Casper (our December adoption baby) would take to one another.

Dudley got right down to business checking out the house and smelling everything. He was a little overwhelmed with Casper’s energy at first but soon they were tolerating each other better than I had expected. Every now and then Dudley would growl or bark at Casper when he wanted him to calm down. By Saturday evening they were almost in a routine. We had friends over on Saturday evening and the boys were perfect angels. Saturday night Dudley was up and down all night but he was faithful to use his potty pads every time. Thankfully he is small so he doesn’t take up much room in the bed. Sunday was beautiful and they both enjoyed our large back yard and ran and explored. Cassidy walked them in the neighborhood and they both loved it. I’ve shared a few pictures of Doug and the boys napping and just hanging out. Gotta love the smile on Doug’s face… who looks happier, Doug, Casper or Dudley?

Now if you have read Casper's story, then you know that he is deaf. We use hand signals for communicating and Dudley already knows what “outside” and “eat” mean.. what a smart little man! He also has a way of melting your heart. Note the pic of Dudley begging! Those eyes are adorable… Dudley is 9 years old but he looks like the baby because he is so small, especially compared to Casper! So we have a couple of characters now. If they didn’t already have names, I would name them Chico and the man… We are looking forward to traveling with them and hope that Dudley travels as well as Casper.

We wanted to thank Dudley’s foster mom Bonnie for taking care of him and for bringing him to us! We are so lucky to have found Dream Dachshund Rescue! Doug and I keep asking each other, who rescued who?!?!

Zeus
"Papillon"


Adopted 01/16/15


Tim and I have shamed ourselves and our family for generations by entering the despicable ranks of "failed foster". We began fostering the skittish, brindle half-breed called "Zeus" last October, a week before Dachtoberfest, as an accident when his planned foster fell through. Although I have been steadfast in my position that I do not want five dogs, that four is my limit, when Marcie sent the email yesterday that a very qualified someone wanted a "Meet & Greet" with him, I became frantic and physically ill. I called and called and emailed and texted Tim, who finally got back to me, untold minutes later, and he said, "I told you we should just adopt him." So, he called Marcie (because I was too ashamed) and told her.

To make this story even more pathetic, we don't even call him "Zeus" which is a noble and masculine name for a dog who physically deserves such a fine moniker. Instead, we call him "Papillon" which is French for Butterfly. We tried Beauregard, but he would not answer to it. He leaps and licks when we call 'Papillon'. Our very thick, muscular, male dog likes to be called Butterfly, and sadly, Tim and I acquiesced to it.

Clearly, we run a shameful home where the Dachshunds (and half-Dachshund) (and wanna-be Dachshund Simone) run the show. I can barely hold up my head.

Maxwell Bluebell
"Max"


Adopted 01/13/15


2014 started out as a difficult year because we lost our male dapple dog, Bubba. He was everyone’s dog. He was full of life and personality. Even though it left us with 2 dogs our little Chloe got really depressed. We contacted DREAM to become fosters and picked up Max on July 19th. Max is another dapple male and instantly became part of the family. He actually had an application in and we did a meet and greet. To our advantage it was not a match. While Max is no Bubba, he certainly has a lot of personality and just so lovable that there is no way we could give him up. He sleeps with one of our twins, is a great watch dog, loves our kids and the kids next door and has brought Chloe out of her depression. We are so happy with him and love being a part of the DREAM family!

Today my heart is heavy with sorrow and sadness our Caleb crossed the Rainbow 🌈 Bridge with our beloved Bobby. Caleb brought so much joy and happiness to our family, especially my son who has mental challenges. Caleb was the sweetest and most caring dog. We will miss him so dearly. I want to thank DREAM Dachshund Rescue for allowing us to adopt Caleb. He was our sweet boy. Rest In Peace my beloved Caleb.

Our hearts go out to Jose and Diana for the loss of their precious boy.

Gabby Glitter
"Luna Licorice"


Adopted 01/03/15


We have had Gabby Glitter for two months now, and we couldn't ask for a better match! The day we first met her was on January 3rd when I went to Ms. Marcie's house to meet some of the available dogs. While I did not plan to bring home one of them that day, Gabby ran up to me, jumped onto my lap, and started to give me kisses! She was no doubt the sweetest dog I had ever met!

We decided to bring her home with us that very day, and our adventures with Gabby began! On the car ride home, I wrapped her in her pink blanket and held her tightly as she licked my face, wondering where we were headed next. We decided to bring her home first, and she knew right away that she was finally home! She ran straight to the couch, waiting for someone to rub her belly and snuggle with her. Our next stop was PetCo to buy her dog food and treats, and her tail could not stop wagging! Gabby went up to almost everyone near her reach just to give them a sniff or a lick, then walk off. She is certainly a very friendly girl, but her excitement could not be contained because she even took treats and toys off of the bottom shelves when we we not looking! The first day we had her, we not only welcomed her into our home, but also into our hearts.

Since her adoption, we have renamed her Luna Licorice! I decided to start calling her Luna two days after having her. The name suited her very well, and she responded to it right away.

Little Miss Luna has gone on many trips to the dog park with us and has taken several walks walks around the neighborhood, and she loves them! Luna's favorite part about the dog park is introducing herself to all of the new people! If she notices someone sitting alone on a nearby bench, she will make it her job to make them smile, even if that means jumping into the bench to direct their attention away from their phone! While she is super friendly with people, she is sometimes a little bit shy with other dogs when she first meets them. She prefers that I walk up with her to meet her new friends at the park, but then she is off playing with her friends! Luna will follow them, roll around in the grass, and sometimes run with them! Most of her friends have been other friendly dachshunds, which is wonderful!

When we first took Luna to the park, I had so many fears of her running away since she was a stray. Now I no longer have this fear because I know no matter what, Luna will always come running back to me. A couple of weekends ago, I was talking to the owner of one of Luna's friends as they were bonding together. I kept my eye on her, but as soon as Luna discovered she was too far away from me, she panicked and ran straight into my arms without me having to call her!

We are so blessed to have found DREAM, and even more blessed to have found Luna! Many thanks to everyone who works with this organization, especially those who helped with our adoption, including Ms. Emily, Ms. Marcie, and Ms. Brenda!


Roman Rosebowl


Reunited 01/03/15


Roman has been reunited with his family! They contacted me right after I emailed you and were almost in tears when they saw him. They said the reason he doesn't have tags is because he bites/scratches them off and they just moved here from the country so they hadn't yet gotten him microchipped. They assured me that was his next stop. He sleeps with their two-year-old every night; their son has cried every night he has been gone. Their son will be very happy when they bring him home. They put up flyers in their neighborhood but we never saw them.

I'm glad he got home! Thank you so much for all your help. I will definitely recommend your group to anyone looking for a dachshund!

Casper Conrad


Adopted 12/21/14


Hello everyone, I’m Casper and I was adopted on 12/14/14 by the McNeal family. First of all I want to say thank you to my friends at DREAM for getting me into such great shape and to my foster dad Kerry who was sad to see me go but glad to see me find a forever home! My new family had recently lost their furry baby Henry from pancreatitis. This is a disease that us doxies are prone to getting. So read up about this if you have a furry doxie in your life. Anyways, Henry was about 10 years old and the center of their world! It took a toll on the whole family to lose him. Even the cat Polly was grieving for Henry. My dad was especially saddened to lose Henry but he started looking at rescue sites and that’s where our story begins….

He looked at so many doxies, long haired, short haired, reds, pie bald, dapples but he kept coming back to me (puppy smile)! Dad called my mom and asked her to look at me and tell him what she thought. She loved me at first glance but my dad was worried that he wouldn’t be able to love me like he loved Henry. My mom assured him that he could. She reminded him that if they were able to adopt me that we would be rescuing each other! I get a family and they get a new fur baby! Mom filled out the application and they waited. That afternoon a nice lady from DREAM called to do a phone interview. The call went great! Mom and Dad were getting so excited about me. My foster dad and my (soon to be) forever dad started texting each other. Ryan and Cassidy (the human kids in the family) were getting excited too. My mom said it was a miracle because they are 22 and 15 and hardly notice anything outside of their world. By that Sunday, my foster dad brought me over to meet my new mom and dad. I don’t mean to brag, but they loved me right away! After the home inspection and all the paperwork and play time… I was home!

Since my adoption we have been busy. We’ve had Christmas, New Year’s, we’ve been to the ranch, we went to the beach and camped overnight! I have had such a great time and the cat even likes me too! When they are at work I have the whole kitchen and breakfast room to myself. I have my potty pads and food and bed and toys there to keep me busy. I love it and they love me. Oh did I mention I’m deaf? Yep, that’s right. My mom and dad work with me every day to learn hand signals so I will be sure to know when they are telling me what a good boy I am. So a thumbs up means ‘good boy’. I am sending out a big thumbs up to DREAM Dachshund Rescue to helping me find my forever family!

"Murphy Joe"


Adopted 12/20/14


We officially adopted this little man today! His name is now Murphy Joe. He and our Weimaraner Lola had a great day together! Thank you so much for allowing us to have some extra joy this Christmas season!

We lost our 14 year old Daisy (Irish Setter mix) in February. She was also a rescue. She died on our daughter's birthday. We had to call Madeline in Mississippi to tell her. Then July 1st my Dad came here on Hospice from Florida to live with us. He died on Aug 30th. It has been a VERY hard year for our family. We have looked on and off for months for a rescue dog for us, and to keep Lola company. Lola came to us as an 8 week old puppy, and only knew her home here with Daisy, her older, grouchy sister. She mourned for a week after Daisy died.

Little Murphy has brought us more joy in a few hours than we've had all year. His middle name is Joe, after my Dad. I just want you to know how much it means to us to be able to give Murphy a home, and we are thankful you allowed us to!! I pray that Lola and Murphy will continue to bond. For now, we are incredibly happy and feel blessed! THANK YOU!! Merry Christmas!!


Emerson Elf
"Emerson Belle"


Adopted 12/19/14


December 19, 2016

Two years ago today we adopted Emerson from DREAM, and a month later got Elizabeth, her sister. What a blessing these two girls have been. And now our daughter and her husband have Chippy and Keaton, who are such characters! We are a family full of dachshunds. Thanks so much for giving us so much joy and love from these sweet, sweet babies. Y'all do a magnificent job!

January 19, 2015

This little black and tan sweetheart has been with us one month today. We were fortunate that her adoption went rather quickly since it was during the holidays. We had just lost our 14 1/2 year old blue and tan female dachshund, Samantha Belle in November. We began our search for another addition to our never ending love for the best dogs in the world, dachshunds. Little did we know how many dachshunds there were out there that needed adopting and/or rescuing. I found several organizations online but something about DREAM Dachshunds just stood out! So, the process with DREAM began…filling out paperwork, emails, phone calls and that significant home visit. Then the call came to come visit and meet our little girl. We met her on a Friday afternoon and she went home with us after that initial visit. Emerson snuggled up to us immediately, both me and my husband. We changed her middle name to Belle in memory of our last dachshund. She is now our Emerson Belle. Who knew we could fall in love so quickly with such a precious little pup?! She has been through a lot, lived several places before she came to us but she has adjusted so beautifully. She is truly at home. And she has made this her home, also! We had a little field mouse get into the house and Emerson suddenly became the fierce protector and tracker she was bred to be. She and my son-in-law tracked that little mouse until they both were successful! She was a hero! She now searches the house as soon as she gets up every day, then she will go outside and have her breakfast. She has a purpose!!! I’ve never seen so much dust on that little snout! She is having so much fun and we love watching her patrol and protect her territory! She is now very, very tired at night!!

She also gets great joy from playing with her toys! In the beginning, she didn’t quite seem to know what to do with all these toys but it didn’t take her long to learn to run, fetch and toss her toys around. We do let her sleep in the big bed with us. After all she’s been through, I don’t want her to ever feel alone or afraid again. She cuddles, she snuggles, she gives great doggie kisses! And she loves, loves, loves belly rubs! She just rolls over on her back as if to say, “Well, when are you going to rub my belly?” She is very obedient and patient to have experienced so much. She is also learning to love our adult children and our friends.

Thank you so much, DREAM Dachshunds, for providing such a great environment for these wonderful little dogs! And thank you for helping us find a new love of our life! We couldn’t be happier!


December 29, 2014

We adopted Emerson Elf whom we renamed Emerson Belle on December 19, 2014. She has fit right into our family. She has the sweetest, calmest personality. She loves to cuddle and snuggle with us. And she sure loves to play with her toys, too! We are so grateful to be able to give Emerson a forever home and we are grateful she is happy with us!

Cheeto was reunited with his lost family!

Our sweet pup Cheeto of 10 years got out of our house on August 16, 2014. We had just moved so he did not know the area or how to find his way back home. I had been searching online on all different web sites daily. After four months of searching I finally found our boy on the DreamDachs website. He had been taken good care of by foster parents and is now reunited with his family and his new baby brother! Thanks to the great foster parents for taking such good care of our Cheeto and to DreamDachs for posting his profile so he could be found!

She was the most wonderful companion and I loved her so much. She was with me 24 hours a day and I couldn't have asked for more love than she gave. I wanted to let you know and thank you for giving me the opportunity to have her in my life even if it was such a short time.

Forever thankful,

Pepper, who we have renamed Opus, has been great! He is such a little character and does the silliest things that just make us laugh all the time. He is such a sweet dog who prefers to sleep cuddled up with us at night to sleeping in his dog bed. He has also been getting along great with his new companion, Chopper. The two play tug of war with their toys and run around the yard together all the time. Opus may be the smaller dog but he is pretty strong and normally always wins the tug of war. We have been following the Vet's recommendations with his feeding and walks so he is looking great! I believe he is down to almost 15 pounds now. Opus loves to walk and even run sometimes on our walks around the neighborhood. He has also been enjoying laying in the sun as often as possible in his new backyard. He has been a joy so far!

We love our little dachsie and we appreciate everything that DREAM has done for these little dogs!

March 4th, 2015

Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that Carter is doing fabulously!

He’s come out of his shell with us so much. He now initiates tug of war, or gets pushy when he wants a lap or a pet. And he still drags that beat up little fleece around and to work on destroying it and then brings it to me to show off his progress! LOL

He really doesn’t have any bad habits at all. I still can’t figure out why someone gave him up. I’ve said over and over to people, he’s one of the easiest dogs I’ve ever had, fostered or dog-sat for. I know in rescue, sometimes you wonder what happened to your ex-fosters and don't always hear. So just so you know, I love him to pieces and I can tell I’ve become 100% totally his person.

Here he is in his new spiffy tie; he wears it with style. And one from a recent squirrel finding mission.

October 24, 2014

This is my new addition – and yes he’s a lot furrier than most “family additions”. :)

His name is Seymour. He’s 6.5 years old and he’s smart, stubborn, and adventurous. Seymour is also a cuddle-bug who isn’t scared to protect me from the UPS man (lol) and he loves other dogs. AND, as you can see below – he lets me torment him with ridiculous outfits – but hey, we got honorable mention and won a shirt To make up for the embarrassing outfits, I’ve been spoiling him with a zillion toys. Just wanted to share my happy news with the gang! - Rachel

As you can see Alexander is quite relaxed in our home. Yes, he is very snugly and so eager to please. He also listens to commands very well. He is quiet all night in his own bed, not in our room (yay!). Lottie, the Maine Coon, will not be pushed from her domain; she hid for the first hour and is now back to her normal routine. They both remain cautiously curious of one another. I couldn't ask for better on day two. He has had two accidents in the house; both I believe happened while we were sleeping. Hmm, do I need to get up before 7am? We'll figure it out. But he is definitely, here to stay!

10/28/14 Adoption Update

Just checking in to let you know Cecil Seabreeze is doing great! We went back and forth on changing the name, but everyone thinks he looks like a "Buddy", so that's what we've been calling him. Buddy Lou, Buddy Love, Buddy Louis. We haven't come to agreement on the middle name! HA!

He made a road trip with us to Baton Rouge and visited Earl! They got along great except NO ONE is to mess with Earl's furry duck squeak toy. NO ONE. They didn't fight, but it was just funny to see Earl so territorial. Earl is also very protective of Emma when she is sleeping, so he is a great watchdog! Cecil/Buddy was a big hit on the LSU campus during tailgating and the LSU vs.Ole Miss game. Everyone that passed him said, "Hey Buddy"!

He loves to run and chase squirrels, and he went to the beach with us and LOVES to chase seagulls! We are absolutely loving this cuddle bug, and so thankful to have him. He is so sweet to everyone! We still work with the separation anxiety, but he seems to be doing better.

I just wanted to send a pic and say again how much we love this little guy! I can't believe how quickly he's become part of our family and don't remember life without him. Watson is adorable and absolutely a perfect gentleman. We are so lucky to have found him through DREAM; giving second chances and happy endings to dogs that truly deserve it... and to their adopters too! Thank you again for everything.


Dr. Watson is such a good boy. I can't believe our good luck with him. He hasn't peed or pooped in the house even once. He comes when I call him. He's affectionate and loving. He walks on a leash like a show dog. And understands when I say "no". At first he attached himself to my husband, but now he is my shadow. Dr. Watson and Sushi are always together. My Boston Terrier, Fenny, is in her own world most of the time anyway. But it's almost like Sushi has been showing him the ropes on how to be a part of our family. He was absolutely perfect on the trip to Arkansas. I am truly amazed. I wish everyone knew how wonderful a dachshund adoption can be! Dr. Watson and I are looking forward to participating in a DREAM function on this side of town.

I can’t believe it’s been a year since we officially adopted Sally. We can’t imagine life without her! She is doing great and so happy.

Sally is deaf, so she looks to Coco for guidance and Coco is more than happy to be leader. Attached are some photos of Sally with us. We are so grateful to DREAM for saving Sally and bringing her to us.

We first met Bingo when we took him to the dog show in July. We liked him so much that we decided to foster him and then we fell in love and became "Foster Failure"! My worst nightmare was thinking about the phone ringing and someone telling me they found a forever home for Bingo - no way! When my husband asked what I wanted for my birthday in September, I said, "Bingo!", with no hesitation. He is such a special little guy and we just love him to pieces. He is quite the lap dog and most of the time he can be found in one of our laps. He gets along great with our other two dogs, Phoebe and Molly (adopted January, 2014) and is now one of the pack. He's a little older then they are and has a lot more dignity when it comes to horsing around. He still likes to race out into the yard with them to chase squirrels and is not shy about a good game of fetch. We are just so happy we found him. Thanks, DreamDachs, for another wonderful addition to our family.

Adopted 09/13/14


February 1, 2017

I just want to let you and the others know how much my life is more purposeful with my daughter Izzy Puppy. She is the most wonderful furry daughter in the world. And I am convinced she is the new and improved reincarnation of my late Uggy Puppy, but much sweeter. She is very protective of her daddy and has several new friends here on The Waterway. Much thanks to the organization. - Dr. K.


Izzy, aka "The Izzy Puppy", has settled in wonderfully in The Woodlands. Izzy loves her toys, most of which she loves to destroy... a few she likes to sleep with... thoroughly enjoys her walks in the park adjacent to the Waterway, and has made many new friends. She loves to wake up her daddy every morning in bed, using her memory foam ramp (I strongly recommend all dachsie owners consider this product to protect their backs), looks forward to full access to the carpeted hallway the size of half a football field, and greets all neighbors with a smile. She has become protective of her daddy on our walks, and makes sure all joggers and bicyclers keep their distance from us with subtle growls. Izzy is so sweet, though; she lets me brush her teeth whenever needed, and would not bite a fly.

She wishes to thank her foster mommy, Katrina Pasternak, for the loving home environment she received, and especially sends her appreciation to all in Dream Dachs, including Marcie Lawless and Suzanne Caillouet, who do a terrific job and make the adoption process so relaxed and simple.

A final note - Izzy is the spitting image of my late little boy, The Uggy Puppy, only smaller and much sweeter. I adopted her in early September, six weeks after my mother passed away. Divine intervention had to be a factor in order for this adoption to occur. Izzy was input into the system a week before my Mother died. I started looking for a new doggie a month later. When I saw Izzy for the first time, I got goose bumps by the resemblance to Uggy. On her initial home visit, Izzy walked right up to our building’s front door, entered the elevator like she had been there before, walked over to my condo door, waited to be let in, and promptly jumped up to my favorite lounge chair... as if to say "I am home!!" I could not be happier with my new daughter.


Otis Oleander


Adopted 09/09/14


September 11, 2014

Everything is going great. Otis had a little anxiety the first day and chewed the door frame but I got that sour apple spray and today when I got home he didn't seem to have touched it again. Also when I leave he doesn't bark long anymore, which was my main concern being in an apartment. He's just such a good dog.

I think he has settled in quickly and is a great fit! I found out that my apartment is getting a dog park so I'm pretty excited about that.


January 11, 2015

I just wanted to send a thank you to DREAM. Otis is exactly what I needed. I couldn't have asked for a better dog for my situation. He was the perfect pick. He is so well behaved and I'm convinced had some kind of training. He's adjusted well to his new home. We go on lots of walks and when we have long weekends we go see the cousins. He's a little bit spoiled and has way too many toys. Again, I just wanted to say thank you for working with me and letting me give Otis a forever home.

Carter and Zoey are two 4-year-old gorgeous dachshunds who are not brother and sister, but have always been together. These two beautiful dogs are sweet, gentle, loving, housetrained, and have lived their lives together with one family. Carter wants to be your lap dog, while Zoey would like to play fetch with a ball. Once she retrieves it, she brings it close, and then noses it to you to throw again. Happily, they were adopted together!

Adopted 08/03/14


Today makes almost four weeks since we lost the love of our lives, our Dachshund, Andy (Andouille) to hemangiosarcoma... and one week since we adopted Scooter McFly, who has totally stolen and helped heal our hearts! We've always felt that although we can never replace one of our fur companions, when we lose one, it opens up a space of love for another one who is waiting out there, in need of a safe and loving family. We wanted to share a couple of pictures with you guys. Scooter is in motion so much throughout the day (playing with toys and running around with his terrier sister, Maddie) that it's hard to catch a shot of him being still. As for the second pic: Man, if only he would make himself comfortable when he goes to sleep at night! LOL! Thank you guys so much for all that you do—and thank you to Marcie and Chess for taking care of this amazing little dog until fate led us to him!

Jake Jasper


Adopted 06/29/14


I began fostering Jakie in November 2014, shortly after he came into rescue. His previous owner died before he could make arrangements for Jake Jasper; his hospice nurse took Jakie in but her dog didn't get along with him, which is how DREAM got him. Marcie thought he'd do better in a quiet home, so I took him and it didn't take more than 24 hours before I became a foster failure; tiny 9 lb Jakie had my heart in a matter of minutes. He has made a couple of big adjustments in the past year; we moved, stayed with friends (with two American Staffordshire Terriers who Jake ran and played with). Then last November I rescued a Great Pyrenees puppy from an abusive situation, so Jake now has a 90 lb. brother, and Jakie runs things. I sit in the backyard watching them chase each other around, and they are a never-ending source of joy. Wish I could volunteer at the dog show with you guys, but I want to thank you for doing what you do - bringing love into the lives of the doxies and their people.

Cinnamon Sandcastle


Adopted 06/16/14


Cinnie was a surrender, and we were Freshman Fosters. When I picked her up from the vet, she was shaking and so very timid. I brought her home and called Jack to meet us in the back yard with the greeting party, Simon, a 15 year old private adoption doxie, and Bruni, a 6 year old DRoH rescue. She had to pass Bruni’s inspection for this to work, and that was NOT a given. Poor Cinnie was still shaking and afraid to enter the gate, but our pups were just curious. It was obvious that the little girl had been lacking in attention and love which was heart breaking, but I planned my next two days so I could stay at home completely and give her lots and lots of attention and, as the saying goes, the rest is history!!!

A little love goes a long way, especially with a long dog … Cinnie responded so quickly and gave more than she got by barrels! It is amazing how well behaved she is, leash trained and house trained

All was happy in Foster Land … and then the call came. “Barbara, can you give me a call … someone wants to adopt Cinnamon.” What??? I thought it took months, not two weeks, for a dog to get adopted! What if they won’t let her sleep with them? What if they don’t have another youngish dog for her to play with? What if they don’t have a Weight Watcher scale to carefully measure her food? What if??? I have to call my friend to see if she will hide Cinnie. The phrase "Foster Failure" begins to sink in … Jack and I had sort of laughed about it, and I had made jokes with Suzanne, but now we were going to have to decide if we were one of “those.”

YES, we are! Our wonderful sweet foster girl captured our hearts and made herself part of our little family so quickly and watching her transformation during the first few days we had her made us so happy we couldn’t possibly let her go … so that’s our DREAM story.

Billy Bayou


Adopted 06/10/14


From Billy's foster mom who adopted him: Billy was gone for one night and when he came back our dogs acted like their best friend had just came home they were all giving kisses to each other and running around the yard and then more kissing. I knew he had already found his family and forever home. We love him and could not imagine him with any other family. My boys cried when he went for the overnight meet and greet and they thought Billy was never coming back. I knew we had to be his forever family.

We will still foster because, even with Billy, we only have 4 dogs now since my Lab Brownie passed away . Brownie loved Billy, so I think he is in doggie heaven smiling down at him.

Chloe is doing well and settling in nicely in our home. She is so well mannered, loving and nearly perfect in every way. Walking on a leash is one of her favorite things to do and our neighbors have commented on how pretty she looks. Although these pictures were taken on the sofa, Chloe has claimed her own chair just for herself. She sleeps in her kennel in our room and is beginning to follow us to the bedroom at night and tuck herself in. I think it's safe to say that she feels secure and at home.

So glad that Dream let us foster her and make her our baby.


Gage Gardenia
"Max"


Adopted 06/08/14


When we lost our beloved male dachshund (Vinny) in April we took some time to mourn the loss. We also wanted to allow our senior female dachshund (Lily) to have some time as an "only dog". It soon became apparent that we all missed having a second dog. Lily was lonely and withdrawn. We began to look for a rescue who would fit into our family.

We knew as soon as we met Max (formerly Gage) that his sweet charming disposition is just what Lily needed for a companion. One issue that we had to consider was that Lily was dog aggressive and did not get along with other dogs until ......she met Max. The transformation was amazing, she was soon acting like a much younger version of herself! Within 24 hours, they were laying together on a bed and have been inseparable since. Max has certainly made himself at home with us and we could not be happier.

As for us, we are smitten. Max is a loving and affectionate dog. He has not met a lap he does not like. He is the perfect fit for our family. We cannot imagine anyone ever giving this little guy up. We are so grateful to Dream Dachshund for rescuing him. Max is one of a kind - but most certainly the right one for us. Thank you all again!

"JoJo"


Adopted 05/24/14


I took "JoJo", as we are affectionately calling him now, to our vet on Saturday and got him all set with a new round of heartworm preventative. I'm happy to report, he was still heartworm negative and healthy on all other aspects. His other name is "Lick Lightening" as he loves to catch us off guard and sneak in a quick lick. I've been using that skill to help me wake up the girls in the morning. It's amazing how fast they wake up after a few licks. :-)

Attached are some of the photos I keep with me of him. It has astonished everyone how fast this little guy has warmed up so quickly and fit into our family. He is still learning to get along with our 2 cats as he wants to play chase with them since one of them squeaks just like his favorite tennis ball. It's quite comical at dinner time with all of them giving each other the "eye" while they eat. One of the pictures is JoJo's favorite look to give us as you can almost hear him say "aren't you going to play with me". My daughter's fall for it every time. His favorite pastime is playing with his tennis balls and the other is to be chased by one of us around the yard. After about 10 rounds, he is ready for naptime as that is the other picture. If he doesn't crash on his favorite pillow it's on my lap or my husband's. The neighborhood kids have also fallen in love with him and have to come say hi to him when we take him for his evening walks. He just eats that up as you can imagine.

Thanks for sending us his files and tag. I'll send an update in a few weeks as he is going on his first camping trip with us next week.

July 9, 2014 Update

Jojo had a great camping trip. He really got into the action as you can see from the attached picture. He also got to hang out with my Aunt's new dog, Rockie who is a rescue from Louisiana as they came out to visit us for the day. They did a little "tail-gating" themselves.

Heidi has fit in wonderfully with the other dogs in the house. She immediately found her dog beds and respects everyone else's.

This is a Love Story

Told with Love. Possible by Love.

Sometimes in this crazy world, we find ourselves with a hole in our heart that can only be filled by the unconditional, tail wagging, sometimes silly Love from a new four legged friend.

Enter Mattie Olivet, our new pretty little wire haired girl. She runs with a hop like a bunny, her ears flip backward all the time like she is signaling to turn left and her eyebrows are wiggly. She chases after our 70 pound boxer rescue Patch with all the force her 12 pounds can muster and she tries to outwit our daughter's rescue Chloe with only limited success. All the while bestowing that unconditional Love upon our whole family.

Told with Love. Possible by Love. Rescued by Love.

Thank you, DREAM.


Tilly Tulip
"Tilly Lew"


Adopted 04/20/14


Tilly would like to update everyone on what she's been up to. She has gone to daycare several times at Bayside Bed and Biscuit for the camaraderie of other dogs, but prefers human interaction. All day is too much for her so when she goes it's for the morning so she can come home and nap for evening play time.

Tilly earned frequent flyer miles on Southwest traveling to the family farm in Northern Ohio. She met Grandma and Pappa Lewie (they're both 89 years young), the kids, the grandkids, and Roxie the Doxie (the grand-dog). Tilly loved the new smells on the farm, walking down the lane, and even chased a chipmunk in the flower bed, then had to check for it every time she went outside.

We found out our 5pm return flight was delayed until 12:20am due to a fire at the Chicago control tower and had to re-book to the following day. The airline decided to load my luggage on a HOU flight but didn't know which one, so we had very little (fortunately I had dog food in my computer bag). Due to severe storms the previous day there weren't any rental cars available and it took over 2 hours to find a hotel with vacancy that accepted pets. Tilly did great in the hotel and was very patient with the 2-hour flight delay.

Now that we're back home Tilly has taken up interior decorating with pillows and paper artwork. We have photos to share that will display her new talents.

Our hearts are broken. Sport developed two herniated discs this past Tuesday. We rushed him to Texas A&M where they did an MRI and took him into surgery. Yesterday he had reflexes in his back legs, which was good. But late last night he came down with Myelomalacia (disintegration of the spinal cord). Nothing could be done for him. We held him while he took his trip over Rainbow Bridge. We are sick and heartbroken. He was the most lovely little boy we have ever had.

Sport gave of himself all the love and affection any dog could give. The hole in our hearts right now is so very deep. We shall miss him terribly. He was the sweetest little man. He would crawl up on your chest, put his head on your shoulder, and wrap his little front legs around your neck to give you a HUG! His passing is going to take a long while for us to get over.

We adopted Preston almost a week ago, but he has quickly made us feel like we have had him all along. It took him two days to warm up to the new surroundings but after that, we could not have asked for a better companion for our other Dachshund Peewee. Preston loves to cuddle up under the blankets and is one of those dogs who could literally fall asleep anywhere, but his favorite place right now is right on top of his dad's chest! When he’s not sleeping, he and peewee are looking for squirrels and rough housing in the back yard. He has done great with his potty breaks also, no complaints there. We just want to thank Marcie and the “DREAM Team” for blessing us with such a great pup!

Please post this picture of my sweet Bella. I adopted her from you in February. We have grown to love her so much. She is doing very well, loves to go outside and run, run, run up and down the fence line. I think she must not have gotten to go outside much where she came from. She has really improved in her eating habits. She doesn’t eat so fast and realizes that she is going to get all she wants to eat! At first she would hold food in her jaws, I guess for later. She has her issues, like most rescue dogs but now she realizes that she is loved and is finally in her forever home with her forever family that will always care for her. Thank you DREAM for giving me my Bella!


February 24, 2014

I adopted Pearl a few days ago. Her name is now Bella Vita which means "beautiful life". I am so happy to have her and will give her that beautiful life. She is so adorable! She weighs 7.5 pounds and is a bundle of energy. She is doing relatively well on her house training, still having accidents. She is getting along quite well with the other doxies, although, they won't play with her yet. I think that will come with time. She curls up in a tiny ball in my lap everytime I sit down. We have already grown to love her. She is such a wonderful addition to our little minagerie. God bless you, DREAM, for what you are doing and for giving me my little Bella!

It is with a very heavy heart that I am writing you. Romeo (re-named Interceptor) passed away last night in a tragic, unexpected accident. Being the ever-mischievous Dachsie that he was, he wiggled under the fence yesterday evening and went into the neighbor’s backyard. We were all in the backyard with him, but he dug under there too fast for anyone to realize what had happened. He was killed by our neighbor’s dog. I am so, so sorry. Interceptor was our baby, and we loved him more and more every single day. We are in complete and total shock. He meant everything - absolutely everything - to us. I’ve never loved, and I will never love, anything as much as I loved that little boy. I would give anything to bring him back to us.

We were meant to be together. She has adjusted to her forever home immediately. Within a couple of days she already responded to her new name. She goes outside with her brother Cooper and if not on your lap and showering you with kisses she has found her favorite spot on the couch. She goes in her crate for the night without a peep and loves being in or outside as long as it's not too cold or raining! I love her to pieces and I have been waiting for her to join our family. Thank you DREAM for our new love in our life, Maggie Mae.

We renamed the little guy to Ghibli. He and Benz, our 14 year old dachshund, have become big buddies. Benz has to straighten out the young one every once in a while. He is certainly a character!

Benny loves the sun! He is just what we needed for our older Dachshund! He likes to eat and play. Thanks Again!

"Fritzy"


Adopted 02/01/14


We are one lucky family now that Fritzy has arrived. He is super sweet and gets along great with our two sons Max and Gus (3 and 1). Max calls him his "rescue dog" and Gus loves crawling on his bed and getting doggy kisses. Fritzy plays a little bit but is mostly happy nestled up on my lap. He has learned quickly that when Gus is in the high chair chances are he may get a scrap or two. He loves going in walks and playing with the neighbors dog, Lucy. Thank you for all you do DREAM!!!

1/27/15 Update From Lucy's Forever Mom

Lucy rescued us a year ago this coming weekend. She has really bloomed this year and keeps us, our two dachshunds (11 and 12 years of age) and yard critters (squirrels and a stubborn opossum) on our toes.

She wags her tail a lot now and wants right up in my face and lap. When she came to live with us, she never wagged her tail and she was very reserved. Lucy would prefer to be outside, propped up in the top the tree, barking and watching the world go by. Many paths have been worn into my grass.

These days, she goes more by Lulubelle than Lucy. I'm attaching some pictures as well. Thank you so much for this feisty little dachshund!


2/7/14 Update From Lucy's Forever Mom

Lucy is adapting just great. Her fears are being eased and she is loving the lovin'. She loves her new toys, especially critter. I throw and she retrieves. I will find my slipper missing as I step out of the shower and find a tennis shoe precariously hanging off the side of the bed. She doesn't chew them up, just takes them. Silly girl. She is cold most of the time. Lucy snuggles under the covers up against my back or behind my knees. She does NOT like to get up. She's like a teenager that way. Here are some pictures I've taken. Enjoy!


Mallory Morningstar
"Molly"


Adopted 01/27/14


We've only had Molly (formerly Mallory) a week and she's already stolen our hearts and become a member of our family. She and her new sister Phoebe, a 3 yr. old terrier mix, are constant companions and spend all day playing and wrestling. They have so much energy that it makes us tired watching them. At night, both dogs join us on our big bed and crash until morning. Molly will gently wake you up with a little lick when she's ready to get up and go outside. Molly has really responded to affection and loves to be held. We are so happy to have our new little princess. Thank you, Dream Dachshunds, for all you do.

Sophie Olivia is doing wonderfully. We love her so much. She is so sweet. Max, our 7 year old dachshund, and Sophie play all the time. Rascal, our 10 year dachshund does not play, but she tolerates her. I believe she is Pomeranian and long haired chihuahua, but she fits right in, and we do love her. The attached photo is of Max and Sophie Olivia.

Thank you again for all of your help. Hope you find homes for all the dogs. They all need loving homes.

Neva Nottingham


Adopted 12/27/13


Here is a picture of Neva who we adopted Dec. 27, 2013. We lost our 11 year old Pebbles about a month before our grand daughter sent us your web page to look at. We saw Neva and the wheels started turning. Her loving face and life story touched our heart and we just had to go see her. We drove to meet Neva's lovely foster family and knew she had received love and kindness for the duration of her stay there. When we saw Neva it was love at first sight.

We brought her home 2 days after Christmas and in less than 24 hours she had claimed this home as hers. We are an older couple and Neva has added a spark ...not an explosion, to our life. She is so sweet and a real "love bug." She sleeps with me at night and lays in Lyle's lap all day. We put in a doggie door and the back yard is her heaven. Squirrels, birds, neighbor's dog and occasional visit from a neighborhood cat makes good entertainment for Neva.

The three of us are the perfect match. Neva is our 6th. pet and by far the sweetest. We are all in love - Neva, my husband and me. Thank you for all the effort everyone contributed to Neva's survival, especially her lovely foster family. I know they miss her.

Penny flying to NYC for vacation.

 


Apr 14, 2014

Penny is very happy. We made her little stairs so she doesn't hurt herself trying to jump on the chair to get up on the desk. When we went on vacation for 5 days, we left her at my friend's house where she was with another little Dachshund. She is doing awesome so I just thought y'all might like an update.


Jan 14, 2014

Penny smelling the breeze and tucked into bed. She has adjusted well to her new home and I take her on lots of walks around the neighborhood everyday. Also, we got small pebbles to replace the rocks in our yard. The small pebbles are better for Penny's little feet.

Shelley Schroeder
"Holley Jean Patten"


Adopted 12/21/13


Yes, we are the proud owners of Holley Jean Patten (formerly known as Shelley Schroeder). Holley is a sweet playful, loving dog. She LOVES to run and play. We are moving in March to a farm in Iowa, where the house will have a doggy door installed and she will have lots of room to play. Her nose is always to the ground when we take walks here. I can only imagine how much she will enjoy exploring the cornfields of Iowa, hunting, fishing and playing with her soon to meet dachshund cousins up there. It wouldn’t surprise me if she is seen on youtube or America's Funniest Home Videos, as she has a charming and bubbly personality and enjoys an audience. THANK YOU, for all this organization does to help dogs get a second chance. I hope all of Holley's dreams come true. Blessings!

Chloe Kardoxian


Adopted 12/17/13


Miss Chloe ..... You would never guess her age!!! I love her spritely run through the yard! She starts bouncing around in the house when she needs to go outside. She is also my barker :) she loves to bark at Zero! She is also my shadow and the one that must sleep with me in the bed at night. If any dog is in the bed you can guarantee it is Chloe. Or if I put them in the couch she will crawl in my lap or nose any one out of her way to get there! She is my best one to sit and be groomed or bathed. All the girls know to come in the bathroom when it's time to be brushed. She would lay there for hours if you would brush her that long! She is still doing ok with her medicine for her trachea and her biopsy on her foot came back as nothing.

DREAM Note: Chloe's family also adopted Fiona and Courtney!


Courtney Kardoxian
"Confetti"


Adopted 12/17/13


Confetti or Fetsy like I like to call her is so prim and proper. She waits her turn on everything from treats to belly rubs! She is still having some potty troubles but tries really hard. She loves to go out and sit in the sunshine and put her little face to the sun. She has claimed the dog bed next to my side but will lay beside it if someone else is in it. She is not a morning girl, most mornings I have to go get her out of bed to go potty. She is my shadow and will bark if she can't find me. She is finally feeling safe in our big yard! She will finally venture to the back of the yard and explore (this is where all the squirrels are!) instead of staying in close proximity to the house. She is such a love!!!

DREAM Note: Confetti's family also adopted Fiona and Chloe!

Clyde Grimm


Adopted 12/02/13


Clyde was originally fostered by our family (that includes Ross and Ziggy Stardust, also adopted from Dream earlier in the year). However, I knew I was in trouble when I stopped by Natural Pawz on the way home from picking up Clyde and the young lady behind the counter commented on how Clyde already loved me so much and how I should adopt him! We made another stop at Petsmart, and random people in the store kept commenting on how much he loved me, too. So the stars were aligned on this adoption!

The icing on the cake came, however, when the rest of my children came home from college. We were playing with all three of our dachshunds, but I could see how attracted the kids were to Clyde. He literally shakes all over, his tail wagging incessantly, due to his excitement over loving us and being a part of our family! His velvety ears go back, he puts up his nose for a doggy kiss, and his eyes shine with love!

We love our Clyde and couldn't be more happy.

Count Choco Latte
"Marshall"


Adopted 11/24/13


Count Chocolatte or “Choco” for short is our newest addition. We went to DREAM in search of a dachshund with some extra energy and playfulness. Our other dog, Lily, was quiet, reserved, and somewhat timid of other dogs and we wanted to acclimate her to being around other animals. During our initial visit, we were sold on him after he brought us a sock with a Kong ball and proceeded to play tug of war with us the entire time we were there. In the words of Marcie after fostering him at Lil’ Ruffhouse, “He was a bit of a handful.” That’s an understatement but he has been a joy to us ever since bringing him home the very first time.

We have since renamed him Marshall and he has done wonders to get Lily out her shell. They play tug of war together, chase each other around the house, and protect Emily and me from the other one which is quite comical. Despite his being smaller than the majority of other animals around us, Marshall has become our resident guard dog. No sound or disturbance happens without him bolting for the door curiously wondering what is going on and loudly making his presence known. At the dog park, he proudly storms into the “large dog” section as if he belongs and goes right up to the largest animal there. He’s a master at fetch and will outrun labs, retrievers, and other larger dogs to grab his favorite Kong ball.

We cannot thank everyone who helps out with DREAM to make it possible for these dogs to find a new forever home. We also would like to especially thank Marcie who was patient with us while we met and interacted with several potential adoption candidates before ultimately deciding on adding Marshall to our family. We hope our donation helps put more dachshunds in their forever homes.


Maggie Mae Zweite


Adopted 11/23/13


Maggie sleeps with us now and feels secure enough to let us out of her sight! We might be a bit prejudice but she is so intelligent..already learning the words: stay, come, and no. We took her and Pia to Petco to get coats and harnesses.

Maggie has really gotten into playing with toys so while we were there she picked out two new ones..a fox and a chipmunk. This dog is a hunter whether it is stuffed or alive! :-D We laughed ourselves silly watching her chase a squirrel that kept ricocheting off of the fences in its haste to get away.

Maggie has brought so much joy into our life when we needed it the most (after losing our precious girl, Lori). We tell everyone about Dream Dachs and encourage them to check y'all out! We thank you from the very bottom of our hearts for this precious girl!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

"Molly"


Adopted 10/30/13


We were looking to add an older dog to add to our family. Our family includes Jake a 100 pound lab rescue and Darby, our mini longhaired dachshund. After choosing a 13 yr old to adopt we received a call about "Molly" a puppy found on the side of a road in Conroe. We met her and instantly knew she was ours. She had lost most of her hair to mange and had a broken tail, but to us, she was perfect. We were right. She is our perfect Molly girl. We have had her now for 3 weeks, she is so beautiful with her hair coming in nicely. Her temperament is amazing. She is so well behaved. A tiny little thing when we got her at 5 pounds she is now 7 pounds and really throwing her weight around. Ha. I can not thank you enough for our girl. We love her so much. I'll bet we say several times a day, "Who would have put this puppy on the side of the road?" I am glad that they did because otherwise we wouldn't have her. Thank you again.

Bonnie Boo

I wanted to give you an update on Bonnie Boo and send you a few pictures. We are so happy to give this precious girl a forever home. She has been with us for over a month and it feels like she's been a a part of our family forever. Bonnie gets along with our male dachshund, Weenie; they are great play mates. She is such a snuggle bug and loves her new daddy. She's quite spoiled and loves to sleep with us. I'm so happy I found DREAM and am thankful for all of Marcie's help with our adoption.

Reggie Rainbow
"Ziggy Stardust"


Adopted 10/19/13


Just wanted to share that all is going great between Ziggy and Ross.

Ziggy encourages Ross to dash out of the house to the backyard (and Ross rushes out before he realizes "Yey, where's mom?" LOL). They constantly are interacting ... either "mock fighting", playing together (sometimes side-by-side each with their own toy), or sleeping next to one another on their own furry blankets (Ziggy loves to burrow into his, and at first I thought he had disappeared before Clay pointed out to me that there was a pair of eyes peeking out from the folds of the blanket). To fully understand how great they get along ... they even eat side-by-side and will wait patiently while the other gets a treat (knowing that he will get his treat next).

Ziggy loves getting up on the window ledge to look out. He has 2 flower boxes right outside, and a new bed in addition to his pillow. When Ross gets too possessive of toys, he also will sneak one up there all to himself! We should all be so relaxed

This could not have worked out any better.

Just an update on Lilly Mae. She continues to thrive, has had no health issues except she lost a tooth during a cleaning session at our vet's. She still hides socks all over the place. We visited a condo we have on South Padre Island this spring and she took to the surf very well and is a good traveler. Recently her two rescue Doxie cousins stayed with us for a week ... good times but three doxies can really hog the bed at night.

There isn't much else I can say except she has brightened our lives and we are very grateful to DREAM and Gina for her.

Thanks again,

Zoey


Adopted 08/31/13


Zoey has finally found her forever home and her forever servants. She is the most demanding, bossy, prissy, unapologetic, ungrateful creature on the planet. If we turn our heads, she eats off our plates. If we return to the kitchen for a napkin, she drinks our coffee. You cannot spank a mini-miniature dachshund, but if you shake your finger in her face, she tosses her head and looks the other way, with her nose in the air. If you recline on the sofa exhausted to watch TV, she walks on your head. She rules the roost and she is spoiled. We all live to serve her. It is demeaning.

Then she stays with Marcie or my mother, and acts like the sweet princess (or so I am told) when she's with them. The problem is, she's ADDICTIVE. There is something about her that you can't help but want to hold and cuddle and dress up like a JonBenet Ramsey, even when she's naughty, you want to hold her and pamper her. It's ridiculous. Maybe, they're all just addictively cuddly, but the others are demonstrably appreciative for the attention and care. Zoey just expects it.

Jackson Browne


Adopted 07/27/13


Jackson did fantastic! We could not have hoped for a better fit for us all and Jackson! After he and Doc got to know each other, they had a chase fest for about 15-20 min., running a wide track all around the house. First Jackson was chasing Doc, then Doc would reverse and chase Jackson. They were having a ball and so much fun to watch. I could tell that Doc has missed having someone to run with. They have become true friends and partners. When they got tired, they both crashed in their separate cozy beds for a nap before dinner. Doc is realizing that he is a little out of shape and Jackson will be his work out partner:-) Our Wiem, Booh, has also perked up also with the new addition. He sniffs and nuzzles Jackson but is content to lay around and watch Action Jackson and Doc play.

When my husband came home this morning, Jackson jumped up on his lap for cuddles and a nap. He has also claimed a comfy chair that looks into the kitchen because he seems to love to watch me while I cook. I started calling him Chef Jackson.So cute!!! You have done such a great job with him!

6/29/14 Update: We adopted Rowdy Raindrop last June. He truly lights up our life. When we took Rowdy, he was heartworm positive. After one year on heartworm meds, he tested clear at his annual two weeks ago. I almost burst into tears in the office. Such good news.

My husband first spotted Ali on your website and he said "That looks like a good dog." I have to say, he was right! She is so loving, kind, so good with the kids, full of energy and ready to play, and super smart and trainable. After losing my doggie after 11 wonderful years, DREAM really took the time to find us the perfect pup. Thank you so much! She fits right into our happy family.

We have re-christened "Ali" as "Lettie". Lettie is a dream. So sweet, completely house-trained and crate-trained. No barking at all. She cried when I first left her with my husband and the kids to run an errand, but that was it. She loves her crate and her dog bed. She also loves her training walks and runs. She has been so good with the parade of kids we have in and out of the house. Everyone loves her, but she is MY special girl. Thanks for everything.

9/24/16

We wanted to let you know the exciting news! Donovan Darby (Donnie) is now a therapy dog. He passed his temperament test today. What is so cool is that Donnie is paying it forward. He will be visiting hospitals and bringing joy and love to others like you all did for him and do everyday for the other DREAM dogs. Read more about Donovan becoming a Certified Therapy Dog. Donovan also received recognition in the November 2016 edition of the Caring Critters Critter Chronical.


Hi. My name is Donovan Darby and I was adopted in late May.

It has been a real adjustment moving into my new home. I have a brother but he doesn't look like me. He has all these black spots on his white short haired coat and he is much taller than me. I have been going on so many walks since I came to my forever home. I love going on walks. In my previous life, I didn't get around much so I have been learning how to approach people and other dogs. It's hard, but I am making some progress. I was out in the country recently in Bellville visiting with my trainer. I barked at her at first but now we are friends. I even like her two Dachshund children.

I have traveled some with my new mom and dad. I got to go on vacation this summer. I went to the Blueberry Festival in Nacogdoches and walked in a pet parade with my brother. Unfortunately, neither of us won the pet costume contest. I liked the slower pace of life and sitting outside and having lunch with my mom and dad. I also got to go to Galveston and see the Strand. It was fun walking around and seeing all the tourists.

Well, I've got to get back to my homework now. I have been going to Petsmart's dog obedience school. I have my final tests next week so I have to practice my "sits" and "downs" so that I can graduate.

Thanks to Kayla, Cong, and Marcie for taking care of me while I was waiting for my forever home.

Love and puppy kisses,

Donovan (the long haired Dachshund--not the singer)

Winkie


Adopted 05/25/13


I think Winkie is settling and has found his doggie bed. He pined for you for ½ hour – crying at the door, trying to look out the windows, then he moved onto the couch, perched, listening for the slightest sound to indicate that you returned for him and finally he took a running start position on floor, ready to make his escape out the front door should you open it. Then he took a nap.

I was a little cautious at dinner as you mentioned that he eats slow. I was afraid Comet would finish first and then pressure Winkie to give up his food. While Winkie does not attack his food, he has excellent gulping abilities. Instantaneously his food was gone. I look over – Comet is only 1/3 the way through her food and she is eating as if she hasn’t eaten in days. Winkie looks up for more. I give him the pill pocket, which buys enough time for Comet to finish her dinner.

Then off for the evening walk. It is a reversal of roles. Comet used to drag Lilliana on the walks – Comet six feet ahead of me straining on the leash, Lilliana six feet behind me nails scratching on the sidewalk. Winkie acted like he was pole position on a Iditarod dog team. He also marked every pole and mailbox. Sad part was that after the first ten, he had nothing left. Nevertheless he went through the motions.

Winkie and Comet are getting along – as much as anyone can with a snarpy Chihuahua. He has learn that if he smells her butt, she growls at him (he keeps doing it, so it must not faze him); if he puts his mouth to her mouth, she snaps at him (once was enough for him).

"Bella"


Adopted 05/01/13


Bella is fitting in perfectly. Even better than expected. :) She only had accidents on the first day she was here and is already heading to the door when she needs to go. She acts like she has been here for months. Bella and Zero curl up on the couch or the big dog bed. They all run and play in the yard and she is already doing well with coming back when called. She has a beauty appointment tomorrow morning. I will send pictures of her new haircut as soon as she is done :). Thanks again for saving her and giving me the opportunity to love such a treasure!

DREAM Note: Bella's family also adopted Chloe and Courtney!

Just wanted you to know Ruby is doing good. Her first day after adoption, we went to Pets Mart and bought some toys. Also visited her three cousins in Weston Lakes and they did good together. She is adjusting well and I believe she is a happy girl. We will give her a good home. Thanks!

"Pepper"


Adopted 03/09/13


We started looking for adoptable dachshunds after deciding that our 4 year old, black and tan dapple doxie, Pickle, really needed a playmate to keep her company and keep her active. We fell in love with Pepper's sweet face from her pictures and decided that we would apply to adopt her. Luckily for all of us, it could not have been a better fit! Pickle and Pepper got along right away and have since become inseparable. They spend the majority of their days either playing or snuggling together. Pepper is just the sweetest, most affectionate little girl ever and our family would not be the same without her now. Thank you so much to DREAM Rescue and everyone involved in our adoption process! We couldn't be happier :)

Rusty


Adopted 03/09/13


I wished to take a moment and express my sincerest gratitude not only for our new family member but as well for the organization and its attention to the process. Rusty has adjusted quite well and brought a renewed energy to our home. His initial separation anxiety only underscored the love and affection that the foster family promoted during their care. Rusty is well socialized, balanced, energetic and was obviously well cared for mentally and physically. His integration into our home has been without incident and he is bonding extremely well with my elder dog Lennon.

You are to be congratulated on your organizational structure and purpose. The thoroughness and care in which you conduct the adoption process is to be commended. There is always a level of uncertainty when adopting but any hesitation I may have had quickly dissolved during the first home visit and the balance of the process was no less satisfying. Moreover, the well being of our canine friends was foremost in the hearts and minds of all concerned and at the end of the day that what it’s all about.

I wish you continued success in this worthwhile endeavor and should the need arise I am more than happy to share my experience with anyone seeking to adopt one of your canine bundles of joy.

With sincerest appreciation,

Craig J.
