  Featured Foster Dog


Name: Cinnamon Moonshine

Age:  2yrs & 5 mths old                            

Hello, my name is Cinnamon! I was born while my mom was in foster care with DDRTX. 

I have had a few issues along the way.  I have megaesophagus, which means that my esophagus doesn't quite open up enough to swallow my food. So I eat soft food while standing on my hind legs....not all dogs can do that by the way!!  I'm really no different than other dogs except I just need you to prepare my food, which doesn't take long, and make sure I don't eat stuff that might be around the house or in the yard. I'll never be cured of this condition but I don't need extra vet that's a plus!

Due to megaesophagus, I would not do well in a home with small children.  The risk of them wanting to give me a treat would be too great.

I'm a sweet red long-hair with natural blonde highlights.....don't mean to brag, but everyone says i'm beautiful! Seriously though, just look at my pics! 

I can be independent and play by myself while my foster family is busy...but I do love some attention!   I like to go for walks and hang around outside when the weather is not so hot.

I don't do well with dogs bigger than me.  I always feel that I have to defend myself and I get anxious.

I am shy at first but I am working on my social skills.  I love my foster mom but could learn to love another.

If you think we would make a good team, then I would love to meet you. So just complete an application and tell them know Cinnamon sent you!

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.
