Consider rescueing a senior dog. (read)
I run a dachshund rescue and many people surrender older dogs. Some are legitimate reasons, like family illness, some arent (" we want a puppy")! The senior dogs - 6 years and over - are so great. They are usually housetrained, dont chew, dont try to escape, they have lovely manners and are just so easy to live with, yet they rarely get adopted - they end up staying in rescue. And we love them . But they deserve a home of their own. Getting older is no crime as we all know! These dogs are just treasues and no one understands how deserving they are. Dachshunds are one of the longest living breeds and can live to be 20! They have plenty of life left and no dog comes with a guarantee. Please take a chance on a senior at some point - it'll be a rewarding decision.

Rescueing a Senior Dog

We have rescued senior doxies also. They are the best and have lots of love to give. It is amazing to see how quickly they adapt to the household routine. We have found behavioral issues to be minimal, and they usually have nice manners too. One of our seniors, rescued from a kill shelter on his last day, is on this site. His name is Happy Go Lucky. Good luck to all you senior sweeties!
