Adoption Stories: 24 Days Of Dachshunds

We are currently supporting Dachshund/Dachshund cross breeds in China and South Korea. All of them will need homes in the UK when they are ready to travel.

Some are closer to travelling than others as, when first rescued the dogs need veterinary treatment, spaying/neutering and vaccinations as well as inoculation against rabies before this is possible. When a dog is close to travelling an adoption notice will be shared on our social media and on our website. These will list details of the dog and its approximate age and temperament according to the vets and helpers in the boarding facilities.


If you feel that your home would suit the dog advertised then you can complete an online application form.


During all of our adoption exercises our aim is to find the very best home that ‘fits’ the dog. We look for special people with a love of, and

experience of dachshunds, people who will not give up on these dogs that will often have some behavioural or medical problems and will not be house trained. People prepared to put in the time and work to provide these dogs with their ‘happy ever afters.’


None of these dogs have any experience of children and so, like a lot of dog charities, we do not home them with children under 7.

Applications are considered by our Adoption/Fostering Team and home checks are carried out on the best applicants and a decision made on the best home.


Our dogs arrive at Heathrow for our Transport Team to pick up and travel to one our pick up points. Adopters will need to collect the dogs from one of these locations. There is also a £600 adoption fee and we expect the adopter to take out pet insurance, purchase a GPS tracker for the dog and engage with the group who have invested so much love and support to the dog prior to its adoption.


Please note that we share as many updates on all of our dogs as we can. Not all of the facilities in Asia can provide daily photos or videos and even though you may want an update on your favourite dog we can only share what we get when we get it.


We look for adoptive homes where the dog will not be left for long periods of time. We also ask that you do not apply if you do not have a secure outside space for the dog to explore. We have the opportunity to cat test some of our dogs and this will be indicated on their adoption ad. All our dogs are neutered, wormed, de-flead and fully vaccinated prior to travel. You will have the full support of our Post Adoption team including access to a behaviourist should you need it.

Our dogs need a lot of love, TLC and patience. Many of our dogs have never lived in a home environment and we need

pawrents who will not give up on them.
