Featured Foster Dog


Name: Rex Alexander

Age:  12 yrs old (est)                            

Rex is a sweet, older gentleman. The vet guessed him to be about 12 years old and he came in very thin. We are working on getting some weight on him. 

He takes a few days to get used to someone, but then once accepting them, has no problem coming and nudging you hand to pet him, and will keep nudging until he satisfied. He's very gentle and quiet, haven't heard him bark yet. 

He's happiest curled up in a soft blanket or dog bed. He's learning the doggie door, but also alerts you when he needs to go out by standing by the door. 

Still has a little spunk in him and will "dance" around wanting your attention. Perfect for someone who is home often and wants a companion. 

Rex is ready for adoption.  He will need to be on a kidney diet the rest of his life to keep his kidney healthy.  If you have questions about that, just ask.  It is an prescription food you can get from your vet or maybe even Chewy.

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.
