Welcome to DREAM Dachshund Rescue!
We are completely volunteer operated and all of our dogs are located in foster homes (which means we get to know them really well!). 100% of our operating costs are funded through tax-deductible contributions and fundraising- we receive no government funding. We envision a time when every dachshund in Georgia has a loving home for its entire life. Check out our ‘Who We Are’ page to learn more about us and the way we do what we do.
HOWL-O-WEENIE was a huge success. Thank you for all who came, volunteered, & enjoyed the special day with us. Stay tuned for next year’s event details – we are already planning!

If you follow us on Instagram, you’ve met one of our newest DREAM dogs, Vanessa. She is absolutely precious, but they all are, aren’t they? The thing about Vanessa is that she is just incredibly sweet. Tail wagger, very affectionate- and those big eyes….. heart melting. We took her to the vet for the ‘usual’- spay, heart worm test, vaccinations and general check up. She stuck to our side like velcro at as she was waiting to be seen by the doctor, waiting for her turn. Patiently, but always watching us, making sure we didn’t leave her. She literally hugged us when we picked her up to make her feel a little less worried. People came up to us and said, “what a sweet girl, she is so well behaved.”
Not 10 minutes later, we were looking at x-ray film of Vanessa’s little body, riddled with BB pellets. There were more than 50 on just the one side. Someone had used her for target practice. And her teeth. Many were broken and ragged, likely from being kicked in the mouth.
Despite this, she hugs, frolics, smiles, and trusts. If you’re reading this, give a little more love today to your dog. Donate to or volunteer for your favourite animal rescue group. They need us.
P is for Patton
This little boy – well, he’s just so damn cute. On the official DREAM Cuddler Scale, he’s a very solid 10. And, he’s a bit of a unicorn in the dachshund world. How so, you ask? Well, he’s housetrained (!) for one. He’s also free range in the house when his foster family is away cause he’s so well behaved, he enjoys meeting new people and dogs, sleeps in the big bed through the night, and is a superb kisser. He’s not a big barker, not a chewer, not a naughty little boy.
Patton, while not a spring chicken, is not a couch potato either. It’s the best of both worlds, really. Patton’s foster mama has had many dogs through her doors, but Patton, she says, is so very special. He has that joie de vivre that we all seek more of. He’s smart, and he’s the perfect companion. If you’re looking for a cuddler, a kisser and a wonderful little boy, Patton might just be the one you’re after.

TIPS ON SHIPPING (Worth a read!!)
Shipping is what it is- we have no control over the prices on that- blame the USPS! If you order say, one bottle, shipping will be about $16.00, however, if you order 6 bottles, shipping will be about $18.00! So, hey, you know what to do! Order several at a time, or go in with a friend and split shipping. Another tip- for whatever reason (???) shipping is about $5 cheaper if sent to a business versus a residence. Go figure!
