As cities across the world are responding to the Coronavirus outbreak, it is important that Central Texas Dachshund Rescue responds with our own precautions to ensure the safety of our community of rescue supporters. Effective immediately the following precautions are in place:
CTDR SOCIAL and Adoption Events • CTDR will not have any public events until further notice.
APPLICATION HOME VISIT • ALL home visits will be completed via Facetime, SKYPE or via a web hosted service where a visual home visit and discussion can be implemented. A follow up on site visit will follow once the State mandated orders are lifted.

Rescue of 34 Doxies and Doxie Mixes From Hoarding Situation

On Friday, Nov 13, two of our fosters were contacted about a doxie hoarding situation in Gatesville. After visiting the location they went back and picked up 34 Doxie and Doxie mixes. Included in the rescue are 15 puppies, some as young as 10 days old still nursing with their mommas and other puppies 6-8 weeks old. The adult dogs are between one and three years old.

All 34 dogs were taken to a veterinarian clinic to get health checks and any necessary medical care. After the vet care CTDR will need to find foster home for all of the rescued dogs.

The cost of veterinary care and boarding for these dogs is going to be expensive. The last time CTDR took in 25 dogs from a breeder situation our vet bill was well over $25,000. Please consider donating whatever you can to help us get these dogs the care they need before they find their forever homes. Please make a donation using the Donate button under Make a Donation for Vet Expenses above.

At this time we are NOT taking applications on any of these dogs.

UPDATE: For the most part most the dogs are doing very well. However

  • Four of the year-old dogs tested positive for parvo
  • Milk Dud passed away
  • Snickers and Reeses are not well. Reeses is now eating and drinking but little Snickers is fighting to survive.

Reduced Suggested Adoption Fees

Bonded Pairs

CTDR has several bonded pair dachshunds that need forever homes. We have dropped the adoption fees for these pairs so that they can find their forever homes together. The adoption fee for a bonded pair will be $350; the normal fee would be $500. A senior bonded pair will be only $250 total. These bonded pairs are adoptable:

Ramses and Nacho
Boo Boo and Sissy
Maggie and Oliver2

Meet Oliver.   This handsome senior gentleman is the newest arrival to CTDR.  Due to a family medical issue, Oliver's family could no longer keep him and they reached out to CTDR to help find Oliver his forever home.   Oliver is 16 years old, fully vetted and so wants a place where he can spend the rest of his golden years.  Oliver loves his people but is also very independent.  His favorite part of the day is being able to nap and go on walks.  If you wou...read more about Oliver
