Wilson – 6 years old, Sydney

The very handsome Wilson is looking for a new home where he can have a bit of peace and quiet in spacious surroundings.  Wilson doesn’t like babies or young children at all.  He could go to a home where there are older teenagers who will play with him but also give him his space when he wants to chill out.

He is a very affectionate and loves his cuddles.  Wilson likes going out for walks but not long hikes as he gets a little puffed out.  He could lose a little bit of weight as well 😊 Wilson doesn’t like bigger dogs and may bark at them when out walking.

Wilson is used to living with another dachshund and would prefer to live with a friendly female.

Wilson is up to date with his vaccinations and desexed.  Adoption fee $450.

Please contact ruth@dachshundrescueaustralia.com.au or call 0413 349 650 for further details on Wilson.



Daphne 4 ½ year old Mini Long Hair and Molly 18 months Maltese Cross –  Echuca VIC ***** GOING ON A MEET AND GREET!!***


With a heavy heart Daphne and Molly’s owners need to find their girls a new home.  Unfortunately Daphne is not coping being left behind whilst they go to work and has started to bark during the day which is annoying the neighbours.

Daphne is typical dachshund being loyal, loving and extremely affectionate.  She’s a little uncertain of new people coming to the home but soon settles down.  She likes to go on outings in the car and is good on the lead when out walking. Daphne loves to swim and will throw herself into the pool and swim to the other side and then madly run around the pool to do it again and again until she’s exhausted or water logged!  (A secure pool fence will be required should she go to a home with a pool.)

Molly is a very happy go lucky girl who is extremely friendly.  She’s more enthusiastic whilst out walking and likes to be in the lead until she exhausts herself.  She doesn’t handle the heat very well and enjoys her nap time 😊

Daphne and Molly love to play chasey and Molly will keep going until Daphne has had enough.

The girls are very close and they can usually be found sleeping near each other.

They are both used to a doggie door and are house trained.

Daphne and Molly would be best suited to a home where someone is around most of the day.

Both girls are up to date with vaccinations and desexed.  Adoption fee $550




Jax – 7 year old standard – Gold Coast – *GOING ON A MEET AND GREET*

Jax is an absolute gem of a dog who loves the company of people and other dogs.  He is a real sweetheart and sooky la la and is obsessed with his teddies and toys.

Last year he was surrendered to Storybook as he had an episode with IVDD.  Surgery was not recommended as it wasn’t a severe case and thanks to the crew at Storybook, Jax has received their special care and is now up and walking again and in full control of all his faculties.

There is no adoption fee but a donation to Storybook would be appreciated since they have been looking after him.  He became a member of the family up there and they forgot he was looking for a home!

Gidget 4 year old m.s. South Coast (Austinmer), NSW – *ADOPTED*

Gidget is quite the little pocket rocket and is looking for a home with another energetic dachshund to play with.  She will need a family with school age children or a young retired couple who will walk her daily and will not be leaving her alone all day while at work.

She loves going to the beach and walks well on the lead although isn’t too keen on big dogs and she also loves snuggling into you and is very affectionate..  Gidget travels well in the car and likes to accompany you on your trips.  She will need to go to experienced dachshund owners who will let her know the boundaries and keep her training in check.

She is desexed, vaccinated, microchipped and could live with a friendly cat if there is one in the family.  We would prefer to keep her in NSW at this stage.
