So, let me tell you a little bit about our new friend that has joined us.

His name is Alexander, who originally came from off the streets, into the shelter and then, into my home. He arrived at the shelter by someone who thought he was a possum and ran him over. That is when he realized that he wasn’t a possum but a dachshund! But don’t worry, he was curled in a ball in the road and so had just went under the carriage of the car. The driver then stopped picked him up and took him to the shelter, where is where I work. I watched and waited as potential adopters came in and one after another had looked at him for he cute and quite disposition. Though, since he was really quite, he was quiet scared and so one after another people left without taking him. After two weeks of him being there, I finally adopted him and took him home with me where he made friends with the other dachshunds. After first, he was really quite, and avoiding some of the dogs. Now he barks and thinks he is a fierce land shark. 🙂 Alexander, surviving being ran over three time, being in a shelter for a couple weeks and coming into a new home with other dogs he didn’t know. That is his story.

Golden retriever-dachshund mix makes us do a double take

I saw this new article and I thought you would all enjoy the photo.

You’ve got to wonder how this happened: “You’ve got a lot of confidence for a dog your size. I like that,” a golden retriever said flirtatiously to a dachshund. “Well, today’s your lucky day, because I’ve got a thing for tall blondes,” the dachshund replied with a roguish wink. After a few dates in the park, a coy game of tug and war, the love of a lifetime blossomed between the fetching couple, and along came this guy, a gorgeous golden retriever-dachshund mix. You don’t see this kind of dog very often, but we sort of want one. He makes us believe all those romantic comedies about how opposites attract.

Lost Charlottesville dachshund story has happy ending

There is nothing more terrifying than discovering that your dachshund has escaped and is running loose. That was the experience of a local Charlottesville family recently, when Shorty, a longhaired black and tan doxie, about a year old, got loose.

The family was frantic, especially the three-year-old son, who loves his four-footed buddy. Fortunately, they thought to contact the local Craigslist, a centralized network of online communities that includes a lost and found section: charlottesville craigslist> community > lost & found

Thanks to Craigslist, the story had a happy ending, with Shorty returning home within 24 hours. Although Shorty’s story had a happy ending, some dogs and families are not so lucky. In honor of National Pet Month, here are some things that you can do to protect your doxie and ensure her safety. First, keep a close eye on her, making sure that she is in a secure area: don’t leave doors or gates open where she could dash out unnoticed. Latch the gate and secure the door.

Make sure that she has a distinctive collar; some people think that all dachshunds look alike, but if yours has, for example, a bright pink collar with a green alligator on it, she will stand out. Make sure that she wears that distinctive collar every time she is out so that people come to recognize her.

Attach sturdy plastic tags that clearly identify you, and check them regularly to ensure that they have not faded or cracked. Do not use metal tags, as they can rust. Be sure that your contact information on the tag is current otherwise it is useless. Also include the microchip or tattoo ID# on the tag (see below); it is yet one more item in your arsenal. Be especially watchful when moving; it is a time when dogs can easily get loose and are harder to track down because of the change of address.

In addition to the collar and tag, have your doxie tattooed. It is a permanent form of identification and provides added protection since federal law prohibits laboratories from using tattooed dogs. Be sure to register the tattoo number, keeping the contact information current.

Finally, have your dachshund micro chipped. It is an easy and painless way to identify your most important family member. Like tattooing, registering the information and keeping it current is key. Although there is no guarantee that your doxie will never get loose, taking these steps will increase your chances of having a happy ending if she does.

By Robert Barron, Staff Writer Enid News and Eagle
ENID, Okla. — The fourth annual Enid Paws 4 the Cause Dachshund Dash is raising money this year to help purchase a new Enid Police Department K-9 partner to replace the retired Thor.

The races start at 10 a.m. July 27 at Chisholm Trail Expo Center. The new EPD dog will be trained in the areas of drug identification and patrol.
4th Dachshund Dash slated July 27 at Expo
Assisting with the event are Security National Bank, Park Avenue Thrift, Eagle Marketing and Chisholm Trail Broadcasting.

The event is nationally sanctioned by the National Dachshund Foundation, said April Danahy,

marketing director for Security National Bank. The grand champion and reserve grand champion will be eligible to go the national dachshund races in Finlay, Ohio.

“We’ve been pleased with the community support, spectators and racers, as we raise money for animal-related causes,” Danahy said.

Paws 4 the Cause helped raise money for EPD to purchase a K-9 patrol dog when Rex retired, for trees and bushes at the dog park and watering stations for dogs along Enid’s Trail System. Last year, it helped raise money to establish three outdoor adoption areas at the city of Enid animal shelter.

“We couldn’t have done it without the support of our sponsors and racers and their owners. A great group of people put it on every year and it continues to grow,” Danahy said. “Racers from as far away as Arkansas come over to compete. The goal is to provide a family fun event that’s safe for animals and fun for spectators.”

Eagle Marketing’s Frank Baker said he has been pleased with the way the community has embraced the event.

“Nothing against two-legged people, but I’m a big dog fan,” Baker said. “It’s great to see money funnel back to tangible things for pets.”

Baker also reminded people who may attend that the event will be air conditioned inside the Expo Center. He thanked Lynne Benkendorf of Eagle Marketing for handling the logistics of the event.

“It is sanctioned by the people who put on the Wiener Nationals in Ohio,” Baker said. “I encourage people to come out. It’s just the goofiest, sweetest thing you can see.”

Three age groups of dachshund athletes will compete. The age groups are puppies 4 months to one year in age; adults one year to eight years in age; and seniors eight years and up. All racers must be full-blood dachshund. This year, there will be additional races for mixed-breed dachshunds.

Owners may register their dogs at The Groom Closet, 2005 W. Chestnut. Registered dachshunds will be randomly drawn to participate in the dash, as limited racing spots are available. There is a $20 registration fee for racers registered by the July 8 deadline. Late registration fee is $45. Information is available at enidpaws4the cause.com.

There will be sponsorship opportunities and booth space at the event.
