   Featured Foster Dog


Name: Wendy Tater-Tot 

Age:  2 years and 2 months old (est)

My name is Wendy Tater-Tot and now that my puppies are all going to their own homes, I'm thinking it might be time to find my furever home. I was found wandering the streets pregnant and came into DDRTX with my 8 puppies. I was a good mother but my real dream is find a home where I will feel safe, secure, and have loads of trust in my people..... but I know that will take some time on my part and patience in my adopter's part. You see, I REALLY want to be doted on and loved like I'm the most important dog alive, but I'm quite fearful at first and will need special care and understanding. I show my fear by barking and even growling and I need my own safe spaces to feel secure. I have never bit anyone. It took my fosters about a month for me to feel safe with both of them, but they think that with their help, it will be much faster with a new, kind, dedicated family who cares about me and wants me to feel safe and happy. The thing is, I adore pets and scratches, love to cuddle, and just want to be near humans. I love my foster people and am very calm with them. I'm very smart and figured out the doggie door at my foster home on the first day so I'm not lacking in the intelligence department, I've just had enough stuff in my short life that I'm wary of new people. So yes, I'm scared at first, and my fear makes me a special needs dog, but once I come to trust you, I trust fully and with my whole self. I like toys and running in the yard. I'm house trained already, need a bit of work on boundaries (who says you need personal space?), and I like all kinds of other dogs because I do love to play. I'm really good on a leash and like to go places in the car. Really, once I know that I'm with a safe person I can trust, I'm a wonderful dog... I just need someone to help me feel safe and confident. Do you think you might be my someone? Do you have the patience and kindness to help a girl like me? I'll be your absolute best friend. Put in your application today.

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.

During the coronavirus pandemic, dachshund rescue can't stop...they still need us as much as any other time and  we pledge to be there for them.

During this time, DDRTX adopted out many dogs to wonderful families. But we also took in many injured doxies. Some are suffering from extensive medical issues.

Now is a great time to give back and help our organization so we can continue to save lives and make families feel whole during this difficult time.
