UPDATE: BUDDY ADOPTED
Buddy is a 9 year old, neutered, male, red smooth-coated Doxie. He weighs about 12 lbs., is completely house-broken, and enjoys the company of other dogs though we’re not sure how he feels about cats! And, truth be told, Buddy would rather not live in a home with young children.
This is what Buddy's foster Mom had to say about him:
Buddy is a sweet boy that came to FDR from a family that came upon hard times and was unable to keep him or his sibling dachshunds. Buddy wants to be on your lap or in your arms whenever possible. He really enjoys sleeping in the big bed, the rest (ie. food, water, yard) is all just a big bonus! Buddy has been with us only a short while but his owner said he gets very protective when in his owner’s arms or in their lap. He has had a tendency to snap at other dogs seeking attention when in his owner’s arms or in an elevated position where he feels he needs to protect his person or territory. We are currently working with a trainer to resolve this issue but he is an older dog that is set in his ways so any potential adopter will need to be aware of this one issue. He would do just fine as an only (spoiled rotten) dog that doesn’t feel threatened by another dog’s need for attention. Buddy is in fantastic health with the exception of needing to have a dental. He is scheduled to have his teeth cleaned and be ready for his furever home very soon! Before he is adopted he will have a clean bill of health and fresh breath to boot.

Gracie is a beautiful older girl of approximately 10 years of age. That makes her eligible for the Seniors Loving Senior Program
She is a lovely spayed, female, red, smooth coated little lady who also happens to be almost blind. she can see shadows and that enables her to get around.
This is what Gracie's foster parent had to say about her:
Gracie is a 10 year old young lady who enjoys life. Even though Gracie is blind she still can see shadows and gets around great. She loves exploring the outside world and her squeakier toys. If she hears the squeaky she comes looking for it. Gracie would do best with an older couple that have no children that visit. See, Gracie loves her squeaky toys and does not like to share them and will nip. Gracie is fastest at de-stuffing toys and really enjoys it. She loves to be cuddled and treated like a princess. Before handling Gracie you need to let her know you’re there by talking to her. If you startle her she will get scared and may try to nip you. Gracie is otherwise a pretty laid back girl. If you have room in your heart and home for an older girl please consider Gracie. I promise you, she will love you back.

UPDATE: HOPE ADOPTED
Hope is still a baby – she’s only four months old. She is a female Doxie mix with short reddish hair and a black snout. Such a cutie! She’s already almost 16 lbs and could grow a bit more. And she is already spayed and house-broken. What a smart young lady. We know she likes other dogs and cats but are unsure how she feels about children.
It sounds like Hope's foster home really loves her. Here's what they had to say:
Hope is a young dog with a lot of energy once she gets up and going. She loves to stay in bed in the morning. In typical Dachshund fashion, she loves being under the covers. She’s quiet, but playful. She gets along with dogs and cats and is not confrontational. She walks well on a leash and is happy playing outside. If you’re on the couch, she loves to be in your lap. Hope is a red, short hair, with big feet! She weighed in at 15.8 lbs at the vet but will get bigger. She is very long with medium length legs. She has a wonderful temperament. She rides well in the car. So far, she seems to favor women and is a little afraid of men. She has not been exposed to any children. She has come to work with me and is happy to sleep under my desk all day. She does well in her crate and can go all day without an accident. She seems to be completely potty trained although she does not alert when she needs to go out (yet). We are working on commands. She can sit, lie down and give you her paw (when she feels like it!). She responds well to commands and picks them up quickly. She’s a smart girl!!

UPDATE: SAM ADOPTED
Meet Sam. Poor Sam lost his human Dad and is now in need of new home. This little boy is only about 10 lbs at the ripe old age of 6. He could use to gain a pound or two but maybe when he has a new home he’ll be able to do that. Sam is a short-haired, black and tan full bred Doxie who is neutered and house-broken. He will spend time in his crate but might vocalize a bit while he’s there. Sam seems to like both cats and dogs but we are unsure about his feelings towards children.
Here's Sam's bio as written by his foster Mom:
Sam's human Dad died and he was shelter bound, but a good samaritan took him home instead. She had him neutered and vaccinated and hoped to keep him, but her husband said no! He then came to FDR to find his furever home. He is great with older kids, cats and dogs and is just a perfect gentleman! He sleeps in a crate at night by his own choice and is crated while I work during the day. He is housetrained and only had a few potty accidents during his first week here. He LOVES to give kisses and cuddle any chance he gets! He is a tiny little man at 10 pounds and still needs to gain another pound. He has the biggest eyes that just melt your heart when he looks at you!
