Adoptable Dachshund Chopper *update – Chopper is now working as a therapy dog with his owner visiting retirement homes to bring smiles to lots of faces! He makes a great companion. He is smart, extremely smart. You never have to raise your voice, just give him a command. He loves to walk, car rides, anything as long as he is “with” you.
This fella doesn’t particularly like a crate, according to previous information. He sleeps in his dog bed and is house-trained.
He’s been known to bark when you leave the house and when you return. He can be very vocal. Some extra training in this department is a good idea for him. He’s not been food or toy aggressive.
Chopper is looking for someone who is around to spend time with him a good bit. He isn’t fond of other dogs, and prefers to be an only child. A couple who likes to walk and who is interested in having him along for the ride would be ideal.
Although he doesn’t seem to like other dogs, his jealousy has led to him going after another dog in his home, he does very well when meeting people. He’s a people person! Chopper is happy being the center of your attention and affection, but he refuses to share with other pups. Interestingly, he has been cat tolerant but would likely attack a kitten. The prey drive force is strong with this one. So, he is okay with big dogs and cats.
He’s only gone after the one dog, but his former owner is always cautious when he meets new dogs. He has done fine with another big dog in his home. It’s just obvious that Chopper isn’t a huge fan and prefers to be an only dog. This smart boy knows exactly what he wants!

If you believe you could provide a safe and loving forever home for this dog, please fill out an application with the dogs’ name on it.
*Be advised, we have a couple of volunteers processing hundreds of applications. We are unable to call everyone back as we do not have ANY employees. Our dedicated volunteers and foster parents will check references of the applications that appear to be a good match. At that time, if you are chosen, we will contact you to arrange a home visit.
The adoption fee helps to cover costs, as each dog is fully vetted, and treated, as needed to prepare them to move forward in their new life. You pay no fee unless you are chosen to adopt.
