Featured Foster Dog
He's a curious little guy. He loves to see and smell everything around him. He is already house trained but was given free reign at my last house. He would love to sleep with his family, but he's learning that the crate is a safe place to sleep too. He does great with other dogs who are smaller like him. He doesn’t mind cats but he's still getting used to them, he likes to chase and play with them just like he does with other dogs. Click on his picture for more information.
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.

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.
