Awesome Adoptions 2015

I knew them in a heartbeat, I could tell they felt it too.
They said, "We have been waiting for a special dog like you."
Now every night I say a prayer to all the gods that be.
"Thank you for the life I live and all you've given me.
But most of all protect the dogs in the pound and on the street.
And send a rescue person to lift them off their feet." - Arlene Pace

Adopted 08/24/15
Deceased 02/16/18

Sad to let everyone know that Paige (black and tan) passed in her sleep this morning. Anna and I was by her side caressing her as she departed for the Bridge. Her years with us were her happiest, no doubt. The joy she brought to us far outweigh the sorrow right now. So, can you foster? Can you rescue? Save one. They will appreciate it and you will have treasured memories forever.

Count Winslow

Adopted 06/01/15

I can't tell you what a great dog Count (aka Coco) is and how well he fits into our home. He and Joey (our other standard) are best buddies. And you would think they had been together since they were puppies. We adore him and can't imagine our home without him in it!

I can't begin to tell you what an absolute angel Count is and how much we adore him!! And how much we appreciate all that DROH does!

Pal Peterson
"Harry Rex"

Adopted 05/09/15
Deceased 10/12/18

We were lucky enough to be approved to adopt Pal Peterson in May, 2015. We gave him a new name and he settled in with our other dogs with no problem. He was a sweet loving boy and everyone in our extended family loved him. He developed CHF and was on medication for two years before his heart just gave out. He had also developed cataracts, and his eyesight deteriorated over time, but he never stopped enjoying life with his “dog friends”. He loved car rides and walking on the beach and napping in the sunshine. We are broken hearted at his passing but know that we will see him again at the rainbow bridge. Run free with no pain, sweet Harry. We will always love you.

I recently lost my best friend Boo (a Dachshund) to a heart problem. I was devastated and wondering whether or not to get another Dachshund. Thank goodness the answer was YES. My vet recommended Dachshund Rescue of Houston and she was exactly correct in the right place to find a wonderful new pet. Everyone I associated with from Dachshund Rescue, Mary, Bill and Vickie were wonderful and helpful in the process necessary to find the perfect Dachshund for the family. It was obvious from the start how passionate and caring all these people are about finding the right dog for me and making sure the dog was right for the household. We found the perfect family addition in 'Stevie'. She has turned out to be everything we wanted in a new pet and more. We have only had her two days and you would think she has been th us for two months - she is happy and we are beyond happy. I want to thank Mary, Bill and especially Vickie for going above and beyond in assisting us in finding the perfect Dachshund for us.

The Dachshund Rescue of Houston is the perfect place to find a pet in need to become part of your family. They truly care about their rescue efforts and making sure their pets adopted out are placed with caring, loving families. They will certainly receive frequent donations from me. Thank you!!

Eddie Earnhardt

Adopted 04/11/15

I can't quantify exactly how in love I am with our little boy Noodles (DROH name: Eddie). It's just too stinkin' much! He is completely adorable. We didn't exactly have an easy start - he's quite hyperactive and very crazy, but oh my word this little boy has become a big part of my heart and day. Actually it's hard to get a picture of him where he's not on top of me, as that's where he likes to be 24-7. My girls are so very in love with him too, and once a week Noodles is subject to getting dressed up in all their dolly clothes! He doesn't seem to mind, as it's a ton of attention for him, and he comes out looking very cute in the latest of American Girl outfits. We are so glad we chose to adopt through DROH, and that we got to bring Noodles into our lives, home and heart!

Ava Earnhardt

Adopted 04/07/15

Thank you Dachshund Rescue of Houston for bringing Ava into our lives. She is wonderful, sweet and has wrapped herself around our hearts in just a few days. Can't imagine our family without her.

Ricky Earnhardt

Adopted 04/04/15

Byron, formally Ricky Earnhardt, has been a part of our family for a week today. Sadie lost her best four-legged friend in January and was taking it incredibly hard and needed a buddy. I can't believe it has only been a week, but how much of a change Byron has already made in our home and our hearts. He is so full of love, energy, joy, moxi and kisses. We are blessed to have found him. Thank you Dachshund Rescue of Houston!!

Lady, Mia when she was with DRoH, has been a blessing and joy to our family...smiles, laughter and constant energy. She has bonded with her brother Chip our Dachshund-Poodle that was already part of our family...not to mention her human family here at her forever home.

Thank you for all you do to help Dachshunds in need to get healthy and find their forever homes!! I recommend DRoH often to those looking for a fur baby!!!
