Frank  – 5 ½ years old, Adelaide  ***  I’ve been adopted! ***

Frank is an extremely handsome boy who has a dear little face.  He is a very loving little guy who is eager to please and adores his owners.  Frank would like to go to a home where he will not be left alone for long periods as he can fret and has been known to be a little destructive.  He would also like to be the ‘one and only’ dog in the home as he isn’t very good at sharing and prefers to be the only recipient of tummy rubs and attention.

Frankie  will make a great companion to his new owners as he loves to be a passenger in the car.  He also likes to go on walks with the beach being at the top of his favourite places to explore.

Frank loves to snuggle up to his owners on the couch in the evenings and will happily keep you company watching the telly.  Frank is a smart boy too as he has recently learnt some new tricks and loves to practice them for yummy treats.

Frank is up to date with his vaccinations and desexed.  Adoption fee $500.  No flights but he does enjoy car trips!

If you would like to adopt Frank and be rewarded with adoration and loyalty, please contact Ruth@dachshundrescueaustralia.com.au after filling in an adoption form on our website.


Coffee Bean – 19 week old dachshund x chihuahua – Perth – *ADOPTED*

Tiny little Coffee Bean is an energetic, sassy and extremely affectionate little girl who is currently living with an elderly Jack Russell, who whilst still active, is finding Coffee Bean just a tad too bouncy for him to keep up with!

She is going to need a family or a semi retired couple who have the time to put into her training both at home and taking her to puppy classes to socialise with other dogs and give her the attention she desperately seeks. Another small dog as a companion who has the same energy and would be happy to play with her would be on her wish list.  Older children would be more suitable than toddlers.

Secure fencing is a must as Coffee Bean is very small so she can easily get through large gaps.

Her owner would like to receive $1200 in order to recoup some of her costs.

Trevor and Candy 5 year olds – Brisbane – gone on 2 week trial

Trevor and Candy are brother and sister (approx weights 8 and 10 kilos).  They are great with children but are very naughty towards other dogs when they’re on leash and will pull and bark at them.  Off leash they don’t have a problem.  They are looking for a family or semi retired couple where they are not left on their own during the day and someone who will be happy to take on their training with walking on leash.  They’re a smoochy pair who need the company of their humans.
