Effie – 10 years old – Wyong NSW – *GOING ON A MEET AND GREET*

Due to no fault of her own, Effie needs to find a new home where she can enjoy her twilight years.  She is currently in foster care and has done very well settling into her new environment in such a short time.  She enjoys her meals and carrying on the traditions of a lifetime she expects a treat for morning tea. Effie loves her walks and is good on the lead and  is very much a people dog who adores her human companions and likes to be with them all the time.   She loves her pats and having lots of attention paid to her.  Effie could go to a home where there is another friendly dog but she has never lived with cats before.




Bentley and Milo, 4 years old, Perth, W.A. *APPLICATIONS  CLOSED*

Bentley and Milo are coming from a very loving home but due to a change in circumstances now need to find a new home.  They are a very bonded pair of boys who need to go together.

They like to be included in all aspects of family life and enjoy their twice daily walks.  To keep them in top health they are fed a raw diet and this would need to be continued.

Whilst they’re good with other dogs they’re not good with cats and the same goes with chooks.

If you think your family can offer the right home for the boys please complete an online adoption form and contact Jo on jo@dachshundrescueaustralia.com.au

They are desexed, vaccinated and microchipped.  Adoption fee $600

No interstate adoption



Sophie and Sharney – Approx 1 year old – Sydney


These two gorgeous girls need to be rehomed together as they provide great comfort to each other and both are very timid.  We are asking that their new owners will be patient and understanding in order to allow the girls to settle in and gain their confidence.  A quieter home with teenagers who are willing to work with the girls would be ideal.  They are quite playful but very wary.  They are not aggressive but will move away if approached suddenly.  A semi rural property would be a perfect home for them.

These girls have only recently started to enjoy the feeling of full tummies.  Now we are hoping to be able to find them a loving home where they can also enjoy warmth, comfort, love and attention.


Please understand that these girls are not for interstate travel by air.


Mindy – approx 10/11 years old, mini smooth – Sydney

Mindy has spent her life in a cage and has been bred from time and again.  Whilst we’re sure her many puppies are loved it is now time for someone to love and care for Mindy.

Surprisingly she will bond very quickly to her human owners and is extremely affectionate towards you.  However her life behind bars has had an effect on her nature in that once she settles in, she doesn’t want to share you with visitors and certainly not children.  She will need to go as an only dachshund preferably to a retired couple with a quiet home without lots of visitors, which she feels the need to protect you from.

She has done amazingly well with her housetraining and will quite happily go in the garden if you’re out with her and is also trained to go on puppy pads in the home.  Mindy has also had an extensive dental as she had terrible dental disease.  She only has a few teeth left and will need to be fed soft food.

If you feel you can give Mindy the home she needs and all the attention that she so craves, please ring Chris on 02 9606 6941 mooredogs@bigpond.com or Sharman 0412 619266 sharman@dachshundrescueaustralia.com.au

She is desexed, vaccinated and microchipped.  Donation to DRA.





Louie – 4 year old male (approx 6.4 k) Albury Wodonga – Adopted



Louie didn’t have the best start in life as a puppy when he was left in the garden without much human interaction or nurturing. In the five months since being with his current family he has taken to living indoors and loves being the centre of attention and receiving lots of affection. He is now mostly housetrained 95% of the time but will need constant vigilance to make sure he doesn’t get lazy. He would be fine with another dachshund so long as they’re not too dominant and they would need to be happy sharing their family with Louie. Now that he’s discovered how good it is to have attention and snuggles he can get a little bit possessive of his humans, he also loves toys!

Louie doesn’t want to be left on his own all day, part time is fine and he’s not too patient with toddlers.

He is desexed, vaccinated and microchipped. Adoption fee $450
