Cocoa plays ball 

Hey all you doxie and baseball fans!
What a better way to spend a warm summer night than to participate in the 
Bark at the Park at the Canaries Stadium Aug 20th!
Wednesday, August 20th Bark in the Park 7:05 pm *Fans are invited to bring their K9 friend to the park. Fans with a dog can purchase a $5 ticket for themselves and must also purchase a $5.00 ticket for their dog (proceeds will be donated to Dakota Dachshund Rescue) 
Jim Olander is sending an order form for tickets(like the one for Stampede) so we can preorder tickets.....just make sure you mention DDR
when purchasing tickets.  


We have many delightful and deserving dachsies still waiting for their forever families to find them.  Please help us get the word out!

 Paws Up!



We have lots of dachshunds hoping July will be their lucky month to find their forever homes!  They continue to put their best paws forward every day in hopes their name will be on the next application that comes in.  After all, that is what every dachsie dreams of . . . finding a forever home where they will be a loved and treasured member of the family. 

Each night, before our foster moms and dads tuck them in for the night, they cross their paws and say their dachsie prayers.  They are thankful to be in such loving homes with the foster families we have here in rescue, but more than anything, they pray that their forever family will find them soon.  Our foster families assure them they will, but we all know what they really need.  They need YOU!  Please consider making a dachsie's dream come true today!    

Did you know each and every dachshund in our care has been fully vetted?  They have been spayed or neutered, received all their vaccinations, and received any medical or dental care they needed.

They are ready to go home!  

All they need . . . all they want . . . is their very own family to love them forever!

Guess who found FOREVER!  That's Right!  Tanner!

This is sure to warm your heart. DDR Alum Tanner is in his FOREVER HOME! That's right! No more waiting for this boy! No more singles ads.  594 days he waited, and like every happy ending, it was worth the wait!  This boy is officially home. Which just goes to show ~ dreams really do come true!
