Adopted Dogs – RMDR Alumni

Rocky Mountain Dachshund Rescue (RMDR), a dachshund rescue in Utah, couldn’t be more excited about our adopted dachshund friends finding their forever families in Utah–and our neighboring Rocky Mountain states! All of the dogs listed here have had their medical records reviewed, vaccinations brought current, wellness vet checks, and follow up appointments when needed for spay, neuter and dentals (for example). The dogs on this page have been adopted by their forever families!

Our founding team, fosters, and volunteers are hard at work helping the dachshunds who come to the Rocky Mountain Dachshund Rescue! Together our team helps ensure the dachshunds are cared for in-home, keeping them out of animal shelters. If you are hoping to adopt a rescued dachshund, or dachshund mix dog, please be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates! We post photos and information about the dogs who are available for adoption. We strive to be as transparent as possible if they have any struggles or need additional training!

Rescued dachshunds come from many situations and for many reasons like when living situations change and animals aren’t allowed, divorce, owner illness or death. Doxies are special dogs and senior dachshunds are special favorites with many families for their sweet and mellow dispositions. Our mission is to help dachshunds needing a new home get the care they require and find loving forever families.

Helping dachshunds strikes a chord with many people. Adopting a dog in need and giving them a happy life is something many of us feel we “can do” to make a difference in the world. As for Rocky Mountain Dachshund Rescue dogs? These are their happy “Get-a-long, little doggie” stories! All of the dogs listed here have been adopted
