NB: We do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25. It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia pounds over the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.
These two cuties will make their new forever family feel so loved. Although worlds apart in personality, these two are a truly bonded pair. They are super-duper affectionate and love being with their people. Like most dashies they can be on the needy side so you must love having shadows.
Titan (female) loves her toys, particularly squeaky balls and is great at entertaining herself. She can be possessive of her person, often pushing her way in while other pets are getting attention. She’s small in size but big in personality. After she’s done with play, she’s burrows under here blankie and sleeps like the cutest curled up bagel.
Atlas (male) is a real snuggle-bug and loves to rest his head on you. He can be a little fearful and can scare easily but is quick to come back for pat. He’s a very chill little guy and just wants to be included in life. He loves being with his people and having his chest rubbed.
These two need a family that understands dachshunds, particularly separation anxiety, their neediness and how to care for dachies (such as lifting them correctly and keeping their weight down to protect their backs). Their family will need to be with them a lot and include them as family members, not just pets. These two little shadows will follow their people everywhere around the house and will make you feel so loved.
Need a family that is home most of the time and they will understand the dachshund nature.
They’re so clever:
House trained and very quick to learn the doggie door.
Travel well in the car (currently in a doggie booster seat).
We are working on:
Barking at dogs on the street when out walking.
Being home alone (current foster carer has not left them alone).
Titan can be possessive in regards to other dogs and sharing her beloved people.
Cats and other animals.
Other breeds of dogs (currently living with two other dachshunds).

All our dogs are desexed, C5 vaccinated with intranasal, microchipped, wormed, and flea treated. All necessary vetwork such as dentals, surgery, eye treatment are also carried out. We are no longer heartworm testing as we have not had one positive test since we began in 2006. If a dog comes to us on heartworm treatment this is continued.
