We’re very lucky not to have a significant problem and our Breed Rescue organisation always has a waiting list of people who would like to re-home dogs. Dachshund Rescue was formed by the Dachshund Club and the Longhaired Dachshund Club and is run on a voluntary basis by Dachshund specialists who can help with re-homing any Dachshund in need.

There is usually a 6-12 month waiting list of people wanting to re-home a rescued Dachshund.
The majority of rescued Dachshunds need to be re-homed for “family” reasons, such as bereavements and marital break-ups, rather than because of behavioural problems which is so often the reason in other breeds.
