Dachshund - Foster A Dachshund - Small - Adult - Female - Dog
Thank you for your interest in fostering a rescued dachshund! The role of the foster family is to provide a caring, temporary home and rehabilitation for a dachshund in need. Providing consistent food, a warm safe place to sleep, kind words, and patient socialization are the standard elements of a good foster home. The dachshunds that come into rescue have a variety of backgrounds: some are owner surrenders some come from shelters around the Midwest and others are unwanted by breeders or rescued from puppy mills The amount of additional care needed by a rescue dog can vary dramatically from dog to dog: Some rescued dachshunds have previously been in a home, and are partially or fully house-trained. They have been cared for at one point, have experienced a variety of life situations, and understand the basic humananimal bond. Often they are well-adjusted emotionally and will adapt easily to a foster family or new home. Other rescued dachshunds have come from a situation where they were not able to establish a bond with a person. They may have been neglected, and lack social skills or manners. They can have health issues resulting from neglect, and will require a caring foster family willing to work with them to help them become a well-adjusted pet for their future family. Finally, there are dachshunds that have been rescued from bad breeding situations, hoarders, or puppy mills. Often these dogs are never let out of their hutch or cage their entire lives. They do not know what walking in the grass is, or how to behave around people or in a house. They have received little or no veterinary care, have health issues, and are extremely fearful or shy. These dogs need a patient, loving foster family to help them learn how to be a dog, and discover the new world around them. With the help of a loving foster family, we have seen that all types of dogs can blossom and become treasured, forever companions to their new families. The length of time dogs remain in foster families also varies. We do everything we can to spread the word that our rescue dachshunds are available. Some are in foster care for a few weeks, and some for a few months. Some are even adopted by their foster families! As a DDR Foster Family, you will work with an assigned Foster Coordinator. They are a valuable resource, working along side you during the fostering experience. They are available to answer questions, arrange for any medical care necessary, assist in training or behavioral issues, etc. Best of all, they often foster rescue dogs themselves, so they have a first-hand knowledge of the process. All medical expenses or medications will be provided by Dakota Dachshund Rescue and our participating veterinarians.* Your rescue dog will be examined by a veterinarian, receive vaccinations, and be spayed or neutered. *Please contact us should your foster dog need medical attention so that we can arrange an appointment with one of our veterinarians. Of course, if it is an emergency, please contact us on the way to the nearest clinic. Dakota Dachshund Rescue 'One day at a time, one dog at a time, friends forever.'
