Welcome to DREAM Dachshund Rescue!

We are all volunteer operated and all of our dogs are located in foster homes (which means we get to know them really well!). All 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.

The much anticipated, never duplicated HOWL-O-WEENIE will soon be upon us- put it on your calendar! More details coming sooooooooon. We can tell you it will be at the same venue as last year- the wide open, parking-friendly, real-bathroom-having, covered-area-providing, electricity-including Clayton County International Park. Need to stay over night? Book a pet friendly hotel. There will be food. There will be beer. There may be wine. There will be dachshunds, oh lawsy, will there be dachshunds! So hey, diarize it- Saturday, October 1st. (There is no admission price for this event, but we hope you spend lots of money while you’re there!!)

Have you ever seen anything more cute than this

photo? This is Zoey (the two legged one) with Tonya

(the four legged one.) As you can see, Tonya loves -

loves-loves her people. Especially little people. She just

jumped on up, and helped herself to some


She’s completely housetrained, too. And adept at the


door.  This golden red Miss  weighs in at about 12.5

pounds- her perfect weight. In her past life, she was

literally- starved. Because of this, and because she

feels that food will always be a scarce resource, she

eats in her own separate area, think of it as Cafe’

Tonya. This way, we can be sure that she eats her own

food, and not that of her fellow doggie friends . Tonya is

one of the sweetest dogs we’ve seen, so full of calm

energy. She would do fine as an only dog or as a

member of a pack. For more on this lovebugadoodle-

And, Lucinda Longdog….be still my heart! Have you seen this sweetheart?

My gosh this girl is a PEACH! We are all so in love with her. Lucinda is about 7, just a precious little soul. She is a real snuggle bug, so non touchy-feely adopters need not apply. Literally. Nothing makes this girl happier than hanging out with her person, taking it easy and maybe having a few plays with her toys. A wee thing, at just 11 pounds, she is the perfect lap size, isn’t she? She is progressing SO well with her potty training, and is a pleaser… she seems to be thinking- ‘how can I make you happy, how can I make you love me?’ And the answer to that is- well, you just be you, sweet baby. Lucinda has recently been diagnosed with Cushings Disease. This is a syndrome in which the pituitary gland makes too much of a hormone called cortisol, and is extremely common in dachshunds and smaller dogs. It is easily controlled with one pill a day and occasional blood tests. Believe me, Lucinda is worth it.
