I adopted Billy in November. He is the best little dog. He makes me smile and laugh allot. He has become Nickali's best friend, especially during the day while I work. Thank you for socializing and taking good care of him until I was able to adopt him.

Just a note to let everyone know that Olivia is doing wonderfull. Gary and I adopted her Sep.09 and she truely is our "baby". She loves everyone, and has a beautiful personality; we couldn't ask for a better dog . Thanks to all the hard work you people do at the resuce society.Without your help we wouldn't have wonderful dogs like Olivia, and who know where these precious dogs would end up. Sorry we couldn't make to the German Fest this year, hopefully we'll make next year and bring Oliva. Thanks and God Bless. Michelle

Message From: Terri and Murray April 19, 2010
I recently lost my little Max, and my other dog Murray, and I , are so sad without him. I saw Ronnie's picture, then my mom and sister went to the meet and greet on April 17 and fell in love with him and thought he would be a good fit with Murray and I. He will become my new little boy when I can get to Sioux Falls in May to pick him up. DDR, thank you for all you do for these wonderful little dogs. They all deserve to be loved an have forever homes. Give Ronnie lots of hugs and kisses from his new mommy.

We recently adopted our Lillia from you and LOVE her along w/our others. She fits in beautifully. I only want to say that I GREATLY admire your rescue & can't say enough in words to express the respect I have for all you do, emotionally, physically and spiritually for these precious doxie souls. My heart is deeply touched by your mercy and hard work. May God bless each and everyone of you & the doxie babies you rescue. Sincerely, Twyla Ring

I just want to say I love everything that you do for these beautiful dogs. I went to the meet and greet today and I fell in love with little Bo. I couldn't bring myself to put him back. His puppy face was just irresistable.

Message From: Karen H. August 23, 2009
Thank you for being here for the dachshunds! I am the proud owner of a little wirehair doxie named Charlie, and he is the greatest dog. I also recently became a virtual foster "parent" through Save A Dog on Facebook. That's how I found Dakota Dachshund Rescue. Just had to sign the book here and say hi. I'll be visiting your website often. ♥

Message From: Susyn K. April 22, 2009
I am so happy that you exist to help this wonderful breed. We have 4 dachsies at home and couldn't imagine life without them. They are the most loving, frustrating, adorable creatures and they deserve to be treated like the little princes/princesses that they think (know) they are.
Message From: Megan February 14, 2009
I couldn't thank you guys enough for taking in my little guys when I couldn't give them the attention they deserved and needed. I can only hope these guys go to a wonderful home, they came from one, they're at one now, and they deserve one for the rest of their lives. I miss them terribly and can't thank you guys enough for making this terrible process a little easier with your love and affection for Dachies. You've inspired me to one day hopefully do the same thing. Thank you so much, you guys are truly amazing people, words can't explain.
Message From: Jacque February 3, 2009
For all of you wonderful people at DDR, thank you sooo very much for everything that you do. I think it is so awesome that you take the time to give these loveable little dogs a chance at life that they otherwise would not have had. God bless you all!! I hope that this organization thrives and you continue helping these little cuties forever!! With more caring and selfless people like you, this world may still have a chance. :)
Message From: Michelle Lesky January 25, 2009
I recently started a group for the rescue to try to promote the need for help for these precious dachshunds and to stop these puppy mills. Please join so we can get the word out to all that these dachshunds need homes! http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=45039078490&ref=mf#/group.php?gid=45039078490

Just want to publicly thank all the great people with DDR who have helped us after we had lost our Cody in mid December. Jane, Judy and Diane came to our "rescue" by bringing Willie into our lives. We had a big hole after losing Cody, but Willie is already showing us that he wants to fill that hole with his love. Thank you for bringing Willie into our lives.
Message From: Courtney December 8, 2008

Message From: Lori B November 22, 2008
I ran across an add in one of our local papers, so I decided to check it out. My family has had dachshies for years. The last one went over rainbow bridge a few years ago. It was so hard on my parents, they carried her ashes with her where ever they went. She now sits in their living room. Someday, I would love to have another one or two. I do not have a place for them to run and be happy, so I will have to wait. I never knew there were so many different colors. It was very interesting to learn this. You are doing a wonderful job! Keep it up. Someday, I will be visiting you to adopt a precious little boy and/or girl. Thanks.
Message From: Katrina October 26, 2008
What I see as I look is an absolutely wonderful job being done. I admire all of you for caring about an adorable breed of dog.
Message From: Carol Arens October 11, 2008

Hello all, I am Carter and Princes foster mom. Just wanted everyone to know how sweet these boys are, Prince is definitely all puppy, loves to be outside and give kisses. Carter is a mild mannered boy, loves to lay on blankets or pillows. There are both great dogs, and it will be hard to see them go, but they are waiting for someone to give them a forever home!!! I know there will be others to foster!!! Please condsider these 2 boys!!! You wont be disappointed!!!
Message From: "Babe" May 8, 2008
My owner just visited your website and would encourage adopting a dachshund. As my owner said after they brought me home - she's stolen my heart!! Doxies are the best!
Message From: Brenda Sinning April 30, 2008
This last weekend was a difficult one for me. Sassy, my long-haired minature doxie, had to be put down. She blew a disc in her back and things were not getting better, only worse. I miss her terribly and think that she'll be waiting for me every time I turn around. I had gotten her from one of the local shelters and a better match couldn't have been made. You are right when you say that rescued pets have much love to give and that they bond with their new parents. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Sassy.
Message From: Sarah March 28, 2008
