Featured Foster Dog
Copper Kruger is about a year and a half old, playful, friendly, sweet, and very gentle. A bit shy at first but once he’s comfortable he will follow you ANYWHERE. He’s loyal, loving and would just love to play with you, other dogs, and fun toys. Copper’s pelvis was crushed before he came into rescue which makes me him a special needs boy. He’s healed a lot, but he might never walk completely the same as he did before. He limps a little on his back leg, but acupuncture and chiropractic care is REALLY helping him.

Rainbow update: Visit Rainbow's page to read the full update. The short version is that Rainbow had multiple bone fractures, suffered from severe vitamin and calcium deficiency, and was in a great deal of pain. With rest, better nutrition, vitamin and mineral supplements, pain treatment, and physical therapy, she has improved. Thanks to your donations, she has been able to recover.
We are animal rescuers!
Diamond Dachshund's own Tesla Voltz was on the news! Her story is one of survival, but her attitude is all joy. Although she is permanently physically altered, we believe little Tesla is perfect in every way. We ask you to share her story to help remind everyone of the real and preventable dangers within our own homes.

What is DDRTX?
Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas is an all-volunteer group in the heart of Texas that is dedicated to the health, welfare, and happiness of our dachshund friends. We are based in Central and South Central Texas and have volunteers in many parts of Texas. We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. As such, we must rely heavily on donations and contributions, which are a necessity in order to continue to be able to pay the costs of veterinary care and other necessary expenses for each of our dachshunds. Diamond Dachshund has rescued, rehabilitated and placed from 100 to 200 dachshunds each year since our incorporation in 2003. We strive to find the right home for each dog's individual personality and needs so that the placement is permanent and both the dogs and the families who adopt them are equally happy.
