Dachshunds (and probably dogs in general) love sticks. Despite my continued protest they insist on chewing on sticks. I provide an array of other chew toys, but apparently nothing is as good as an old fashion stick. I’m constantly taking them away from them but… on occasion I’ll let them play with it while I snap a few photos.  How about yours, do they likes sticks?!

    I did put in an application for Lily and I guess you have so far rejected all applications. People can be home all day and still not be the right choice for any critter, because of their inability to provide a loving home. My dogs are spoiled and happy and yes I work. I am sad that I have been eliminated for reasons that make no sense to me. However I hope she finds somebody to your expectations before she is to old to truly bond with the person or people that take her God bless you all for the work you.

  3. Hello Turtle! Real quick – the use of YOU is incorrect. Lily’s permanently placement is being overseen NOT BY me or DOGS but… by Dachshund Rescue & Placement. We as a group and I as the individual have ZERO say or influence in where Lily goes. I don’t tell them how to run their rescue and they don’t tell me how to run my websites and nonprofit. As a foster doxie dad, I really have a hands off approach in the vetting process. My singular job is take care of Lily until her home is found. Remember though there are lots of rescues out there needing their forever home so… if one rescue isn’t to your liking there are others: Southern California Dachshund Rescue – Dena
    Dachshund Rescue LA – Tamara
    Dachshund Paws & Pals Rescue – Tara ; I’m certain your doxies are spoiled and you’re a good dachshund guardian. Their rejection is not a reflection of you but simply a statement about them (not necessarily good or bad, just a statement). Hug your doxies tight from us and our pack and have a wonderful day. I think you’re pretty awesome for just completing an application and submitting your name for consideration. Thank you! Johnny, Rufus, Emily & Lily. 🙂


    Gretchen is an inside dog for the most part. Outside she will roll in anything smelly. Inside she will hunt down a bug by some kind of trail it leaves. Florida has tons of bugs so she keeps busy. She grabs the bug in her mouth, crunches it and then spits it out. She repeasts this until the bug is dead. I praise her and thank her for protecting me.                                     Suzanne   PS  The stick thing seems to be a puppy thing but I think they love sticks because they are soft inside and they can tear them up.

    Dori does but Frieda not so much. It’s hard not to just let them chew, they enjoy it so much!

    I filled out a adoption form to adopt a doxie and I still haven’t heard back from u all or got a email or phone number. If u would please contact me and let me know about the adoption form I filled out and let me know if u all are going to let me adopt one of the doxies. I would really love to adopt another one so my doxie will have someone to play with. So please get in touch with me and let me know something about the adoption form I filled out. Thankyou, Jamie Clark (Maples)

    • Jamie – you need to followup with Dachshund Rescue and Placement. We at ROTW do not receive or review applications. I know at least one is under serious consideration but I’m unaware of the details at this time. Please contact them directly for updates at – I don’t know that they promise to reply, but click on the contact tab and see if they’ll write you back. Perhaps you’re in the maybe or decline pile – I honestly don’t know, but think you’re a winner for just submitting your application. 🙂 Thank you!

    My doxie loves sticks as well. While it makes a mess, it is an all natural chew toy and I think it is good for keeping their teeth healthy and strong =-)
