My love for Doxies started ALL the way back in 2006, when I worked for a Real Estate office. A woman and her little girl came in with the tiniest, most adorable puppy I’d ever seen! She was a mini dachshund, a black and tan dapple, and from that point on-that is all I wanted! So, for my birthday in 2006-that is what I got! Ever since then, my love for these little long dogs has grown exponentially!
I always check Craigslist and FB to see if there are any dachshunds that need homes, and post them in a Doxie lovers of Kansas group, to try to find homes. I’ve taken some in, and I’ve even transported some. I finally decided, with a recent CL save-Frankie, that I was going to pursue becoming an actual rescue...so that I can help MORE dogs, and also be a tax deductible entity to people that are willing to help me! I have a big heart with lots of love for these little dogs <3!
Randi’s Rockin Dachshund Rescue is not your traditional rescue. Although we are a 501(c)(3) and are state licensed, all dogs who pass through our doors enter into our family. We are a home-based facility where they live openly as a pack. The dogs-sleep in the bed with me, and become one of my “kids” until their new forever home has been chosen. I personally call the possible adopters vet, reference, and do a home check before the dog ever leaves my possession. It takes a lot of work-but I do ever step I can to ensure the BEST possible FOREVER home for these weenies. <3!
