Sensational Seniors

Vegas (11 ) and Lady (9)

Miniature Dachshunds 



Vegas and Lady are looking for a loving home as their human mother is poorly.

These active seniors have enjoyed growing up in a lively household with six children, large dogs, cats and regular boat trips. However in recent years their life has mellowed due to the health needs of their owner. They have become outside dogs and the opportunities for regular exercise and outings have diminished. In addition, dogs are no longer house trained so patience in this area is required. 


Vegas and Lady have been loved members of the family and their owner would like them to once again have the lifestyle they deserve. They have lovely temperaments and adore their family members. Vegas is an easy going and affectionate. he is deaf but responds well to visual signals. He would love to be a lap dog, couch potato and receive oodles of affection. Lady is an outgoing and loveable scallywag. Growing old is not going to quash her love for life. She is an adventurer and huntress. This high spirited girl is also a food thief. 


Vegas and Lady would be best suited to a home where someone is there most of the day to provide companionship. A property with acreage or a large interesting garden would be appreciated by this pleasure seeking pair. As Vegas is a Houdini and Lady follows her nose, secure fencing is essential. Daily walks and outings are certainly on their wish list.


If you believe your home ticks all the boxes, please complete an online application. If you are already on our waiting list, please let Yvette know you are interested.


Adoption fee $500

Sophie – Adelaide

Sophie is a gorgeous 7 year old 5kg mini.  Sadly she didn’t have the best start in her life; used for breeding, being de barked and having 2 litters by the time she was two.  Her current owner adopted her and Sophie spent the next 5 years happy with her new younger sister Layla.  Unfortunately the girls have started to fight since Layla has come into adulthood and they have not been kind to each other and so Sophie is now looking for her new forever home.  Sophie comes with a background of medical issues.  She has suffered from dermatitis and allergies which are being controlled with diet and cytopoint injections every 8-12 weeks.  These cost approx. $125 for two doses.  Sophie also recently suffered from an IVDD episode but has recovered well after crate rest without the need for surgery.  Sophie would be an ideal companion to someone who is home for the majority of the day and who likes to go for leisurely walks.  Sophie would not cope with young, active children and she would prefer to be the one and only pet in the home so she can enjoy being the centre of attention.  Sophie is up to date with vaccinations, de sexed. Microchip 982000356798566

Adoption fee: $450.

For further information please submit an adoption form found on our website and contact ruth@dachshundrescue.com.au

George – Dachshund X – approximately 8 kilos – Bellarine Peninsula, Vic – APPLICATIONS CLOSED

George is a 16 month old energetic young man that loves the company of humans. However as a result of that he doesn’t like to be left for long periods of time as it makes him anxious and he will then howl his disapproval. George is also extremely playful, loves to chew his toys, enjoys the car and he sleeps in his crate.

George is going to need someone that has the time and commitment to teach him some manners out walking, as he can pull on the lead and jump up to greet people. As he is a young boy this  obedience training will set him up for positive interactions in the future. Cats or chickens are not his favourites so he’s also looking for a home without them.

He is desexed, vaccination and microchipped.

If you think George might be suitable for your home, please contact Karan on karan@dachshundrescue.com.au

Hercules – 5 years 4 months, Southern NSW * GOING ON A MEET AND GREET – APPLICATIONS CLOSED*

Hercules has a big personality radiating from his miniature dachshund body. He likes to be ‘boss man’ and takes his duties a little too seriously. As protector of the property and of the family, Hercules will bark loudly to deter passers by, perceived intruders and even guests. If people continue to approach him while ignoring warnings, Hercules may nip. He has done this twice. However once visitors have been  given the seal of approval, Hercules will very quickly want to be their new best friend.


This young boy has a heart full of love for his special human. Hercules enjoys cuddles and a morning snuggle in the bed. He is a smart boy who knows how to sit, shake hands and can almost complete a sausage roll. Hercules loves his toys, swimming in a dam and river and sadly, hunting lizards. An active person or couple who enjoy walks and outside adventures would suit him perfectly.


If you are looking for a loyal, loving companion, can commit to further training, and are home most of the day, Hercules might be just be the dachshund for you.


Please note that Hercules is only suitable for a quiet household with mature adults and no other dogs or pets.


If you are interested in Hercules please complete an application form available on our website or if you are already on our waiting list, please email yvette@dachshundrescue.com.au

Brie, 10 years old, 10 kilograms, Sunshine Coast *APPLICATIONS CLOSED – GOING ON A MEET AND GREET*

Beautiful Brie was rescued from a situation of neglect and abuse aged two years old. This has left her with emotional scars and some behavioural problems. Brie is not house trained and is fearful of men. Although gentle and affectionate towards family members, Brie has occasionally nipped adults who have patted her unexpectedly or or invaded her space. However she adores children  and laps up attention from them.

Brie has no interest in playing games but will frolic under a sprinkler and chase water from a hose. She loves to swim, especially in a dam. Less endearing is Brie’s strong prey drive resulting in the death of ducklings and chickens. She is not tolerant of dogs smaller than herself and it is unlikely that Brie is cat friendly.  However she would love a male buddy; either a calm, sociable dachshund or a larger dog.

Brie is best suited to a home where someone is there most of the day  and  able to give her the attention she yearns while limiting opportunities for barking. Her new family needs to be patient with toilet training and can lovingly help this sweet senior adapt to her new home.

If interested, Please complete an online application highlighting your interest in Brie or if you already have an application in place contact yvette@dachshundrescue.com.au
