Featured Foster Dogs
Beethoven and Mozart are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. They were loved very much (a little too much as they need to lose a little weight) but their owner fell on hard times and had to give them up. Please know this was very hard for him as they were his everything but the place he was moving to wouldn't allow animals and those that did were full. They were turned into rescue after their owner was reassured we would find them the perfect home. Wouldn't you like to be that home? Click on their picture to read more about them.
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.

Foster Homes Needed
Can I stay at your house for a while?
Do you have room in your heart and home for a homeless Dachshund? We need more foster homes to provide a loving stable environment for dachshunds in need. DDRTX takes care of the vet bills and the foster provides room and board and a family home for the needy dog until the dog is adopted to a carefully screened adoptive home. You can watch and participate as a shy or fearful little dog blossoms into a happy, healthy and well adjusted family member! Fosters also bring the dog to our events scheduled on weekends and sometimes to meet and greets of potential new adopters. It’s an easy volunteer job with a big emotional reward and a warmed heart -- knowing you've help save a dachshund from being homeless and helped them find a forever, loving, permanent home! Fill out a foster care application. Foster homes pass the same requirements as our adopters. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Update: Tesla is now a candidate for what we hope will be her final surgery! We are getting ready to start fundraising to cover the costs of the surgery with a Canine Dental Specialist that will close the hole in the top of her mouth. While we have been setting all of that up, Tesla has been diligently training her foster home to spoil her rotten and showing them that no matter what they are working on, she can help! Tesla is one of the happiest, most silly dachshunds we've ever known and every single day she brings smiles to our faces.

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.
