DRA has been helping rescue and privately rehome dachshunds across Australia since 2009


Presley’s Dad was between a rock and a hard place in wanting to keep the companionship of Presley, but knowing that leaving him alone for long hours during the day, was not being kind to Presley who was suffering loneliness. Presley has been “adopted” by Roxy the bulldog/staffie who is a gentle soul and who has recently taken their family’s kitten into her care.  Now Presley has also been taken under her wing and is enjoying life as being a special companion to their son as well as the family.  We’re hoping Presley is beginning to learn that kittens are not for chasing and when this kitten grows up it’s better that he’s on the right side of her.  (NSW)

Indy belonged to a young owner who unfortunately is having a lengthy stay in hospital and  no longer able to look after him. Indy is now in a home and is loving the fact that he shares the home with Cinnamon, a rescue dog that the family welcomed into their home last year.  Cinnamon hasn’t minded sharing his toys with Indy even though Indy has now chewed the ears off every toy!  Indy is  spoilt for company with teenagers as an added bonus and an extremely busy social life, with Christmas celebrations and a party to celebrate his second birthday.  Luckily Indy loves the car because he also goes on road trips to Port Macquarie to visit Grandma who appreciates his visits as he has a lovely personality and is a calm and well-mannered boy – just the type of boy Grandma appreciates  (NSW)

Sadly we don’t know why Coco and her brother were surrendered to the pound.  They were both adopted together but the family returned only Coco back to the pound after a few days.  Coco was then subsequently adopted as an only dachshund but she did not settle and was surrendered to DRA just before Xmas.  Luckily for Coco we managed to find her a wonderful foster home with people who had already adopted Buddy from DRA and are experienced dog owners.  It didn’t take long for Coco to win her foster carers and Buddy’s hearts with her sassy and mischievous personality and she has now been formally adopted.  Coco keeps her new owners amused and exasperated with her antics of climbing trees around the property and we are forever grateful for their tolerance and patience.  (NSW)

I’d like to thank you for the opportunity to adopt Pip and Leo. From day one they both settled into the household like they’d lived here all their lives. They are so affectionate and got along with my mini doxie straight away. They have taken ownership of one of the sofa’s which they spend their nights together on. They both love walking or coming for a ride on the buggy around the paddocks with me to feed the calves and horses.  Both of them love belly rubs A LOT!  Pip is a great little guard dog which seems to be rubbing off on the other 2 and I couldn’t be more happy with that either. With them both having a beautiful gentle nature it was hard for the whole household not to fall in love with them straight away. It’s safe to say they are DEFINITELY indoor dogs when we aren’t doing jobs around the property.  From Leo and Pip’s new owners.  (QLD)

A friend of ours gave us a present with the words “A home is only a house without dogs”. Thanks to Dachshund Rescue we have a home again. Baxter and CJ joined us early in January and have changed our lives, thank you. Watching the 2 of them run around and smell every corner, every leaf that moves and informing the local birds that the dogs are home. We are so blessed to have had the opportunity to take them into our home. Thank you to Jo Tetlow for her support and encouragement during the process. We hope we will do long dog owners proud in looking after Baxter and CJ and look forward to lots of rowdy barking and cuddles. (WA)

Due to a change in family circumstances this much loved 4 year old was looking for a new family home.  Dax has landed on his paws and now finds himself living back inside the home and has a new dachshund sister to get into mischief with.  The family, particularly Mum! is besotted with this little man and although initially anxious at taking on a dachshund sight unseen, due to coronavirus lock downs, it has worked out extremely well and we’re once again so grateful to people who open their homes to our rescues. Meantime Dax is under a training regime to stop barking when he meets other dogs out walking and is also on a weight loss programme.  Dax, however, is taking it in his stride as these dogs know when they’re onto a good thing.
