Adoptable Dachshund Zero is a happy guy and a professional tail-wagger! His foster describes him as the “goodest boy.” He’s friendly meeting new people and dogs alike.
Not an aggressive barker, Zero only barks when he wants to play fletch and you are taking too long to throw the ball! He has the most unique gruff/ rough bark that takes everyone by surprise. His foster mom has never seen him bark for any reason other than play time.
Zero socializes well with other dogs, but is not one to play with them. He has never shown an ounce of uncomfortableness or aggression around dogs, but just rather play with humans. He mostly smells the other pups and then leaves them alone. Zero has not been tested with big dogs in close proximity, but does fine when seeing them on walks. I don’t expect any issues at all.
He has not been tested with cats in the same space but he doesn’t seem to be interested or care about the neighborhood cats at all. I don’t expect any issues at all. Zero does so well with the neighbors young children (even when they are kind of annoying). He does not necessarily play with them, unless they want to play fetch! He has not been tested with children for long periods of time.
In our care he has received: Vet Check, 1 or more Vaccines, Dental Exam, Nails Trimmed, Flea Treatments, Heart Worm testing and medication, Major Dental (cleaning and removal).
He is good on walks. Zero has no problems on leash and is even getting better at being off-leash! He is house-trained. Even though Zero was found as a stray, he was definitely someone’s pet at some point – he hasn’t had a single accident since being in my home! Such a good boy!
Crate-trained, Zero does really well in the crate. He sleeps in his crate most nights, and has spent some time in the crate throughout the day/evening while his foster parents are out of the house with no issues at all. He has proven to do amazingly well as a free-roamer around the house (except make sure you close the bathroom door or he’ll eat the bathroom trash) and no longer spends time in the crate during the day/evening. He would do well free-roaming or crated, either way.
He is as adaptable as they come! Zero does will sleeping in the crate, dog bed, or with his foster in the big bed. He’s an easy-going kind of fella! Zero is the absolute sweetest pup there is! He does not have an ounce of aggression in his body.
He does really well on car rides, although he has absolutely not understanding for personal space in the car, hahah! When sitting in the back, Zero likes to prop his front feet onto the middle console and place his head directly on or by your shoulder while you drive. Its truly is the cutest quirk! See pictures where his long body comes in handy, haha!
Zero had an extensive dental surgery done where they took out 25 teeth! He was already missing 7 teeth at the time and so he only has a few left. It doesn’t seem to impact his daily life except that he has to eaten soft (or softened) foods. The labs showed some potential for liver issues in the future, but nothing to be concerned of as of now.
Adoptable Dachshund Zero – 9 yrs, 15 lbs.
Zero is an all around great dog! His perfectly frosted face resembles the dog from Nightmare Before Christmas (hence the name!) He is completely potty trained, does well with dogs and humans of all sizes, and has an ever-wagging tail. Zero loves to play fetch with (and destroy) tennis balls, cuddle up and burrow under blankets, and eat! He is gentle and loving and has the funniest personality that can only be explained by experiencing it. Any family would be extremely lucky to have Zero as the newest member. Adoption fee $250

*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.
