Featured Foster Dog


Name: Christmas Eve

Age:   2 1/2 yrs old (est)             

Christmas Eve, aka Chrissi, is the mother of 9 puppies born in November. She has had a crazy life lately taking care of them. She is an amazing mom that has done her job well. Now it is time for Chrissi to be taken care of and have the job of being a loving companion for the rest of her life. Chrissi is a sweet girl that may take a little time to warm up and decompress. We have learned that Chrissi needs another dog buddy to help her feel safe.  Having another dog in the home helps her to learn to trust and be happy.  She is a loving girl that will crawl up on your lap and binge watch your favorite shows! She is a puppy at heart, she loves to play with toys and chase around in the yard. The funniest thing she does is chase her tail!! It's fun to watch! We believe that she is about 2 years old and she has a beautiful red, smooth coat with lighter red "wings" on her back. If this beautiful lady looks like your new best friend, you have a dog buddy for her and some patience for her,  put in your application today!

** Christmas Eve is available on a Provisional Light Heartworm Positive Contract.  Chrissi has some special care needs.  Please ask for details if interested in Christmas Eve!

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.
