Beautiful gentle Keiko was a 7 month old baby when he came into care as he has a paw deformity and his breeder just wanted the best forever home for him. Keiko settled in with Rosalie and her pack and just did what puppies do, enjoyed every day, ran riot in the house but most of all he was first for cuddles and the most gentle obedient little pup anyone could wish for. We made inquiries and had consultations around the best options to manage his missing toes but the decision was that he was functioning perfectly without any intervention so that the best option for Keiko was to do nothing. Rosalie already knew where a great home would be for this little guy but it was decided that he would be fostered with a view to adopt as there were two other Dachshunds and also two larger dogs, chickens and two families for Keiko to love. This family were also mourning the loss of two very senior girls and was a little too soon they thought Well Keiko had other ideas, he loved everyone from the start and just fitted in, we think the senior girls could see how unhappy their Mum was and sent him from above to help heal the gaping hole left in her heart by their departure. We are so happy to report Keiko has now been adopted and is in his forever home. Meant to be we think

Cinnamon (Cinni) was surrendered to us 6 months ago. She was another unfortunate little dachshund suffering from IVDD. Cinni was treated conservatively with medication, crate rest, daily physio and massage. What a special and amazing little girl she is, she is now walking on her own without any assistance. Sometimes she even runs, especially whilst chasing the local bush turkey in her Foster homes back yard. Like all IVDD survivors, Cinni has good days and bad days. Some days her back may look more arched than others or if she’s having a lazy day might start walking a little drunk, but this soon improves when she starts walking around. She has grown to love the 3 dachshunds she is currently living with. Like most dachshunds Cinni loves sitting in the sunshine, she will be happy curled up close by to you and adores being on your lap. She has learnt to use the doggie door as well. Cinnamon now spins herself around in circles when she is waiting for her food bowl to be placed down. She certainly is a little character, she also says “howwoooh (hello) to us every morning when she see’s us”. ❤️ Now that she has recovered it’s time for her to find her best forever home. Cinnamon is best suited to a quiet household and preferably with someone with her most of the day. She is not suitable for a family with young children.

Get Ready to fall in love. Hunter is a 4 year old desexed male with beautiful breeding inside and out. He is very loving and playful, a big boof of a boy who gets on well with all humans and canine members of the family. Initially a bit wary of the males in his foster family, he is now devoted to them, an enthusiastic welcome committee, study companion, gardener and foot warmer. He particularly loves his walks and adventures in the car, is keen on the water, but prefers to be with his people all the time and would be suited to a household where there is someone at home often. You will know where that person is as he will be lying at their feet (usually the lady of the house). He has been wonderful with his foster family’s senior dogs and they will miss playing with him, however because of his strength and size he would be suited to a household with younger dogs or a larger dog. When he came to All4Dachshunds he was very frightened and traumatised and he needs firm boundaries to relax and thrive, otherwise he will take on the role of protector and this could lead to undesirable aggressive behaviours. For that reason we would prefer him to go to a calm home without young children. He has done incredibly well in a short space of time but will need a confident owner who will love him enough to put his needs first and fully commit to continuing his training. This will be ongoing for some time to restore his confidence in humans and teach him how to interact with the world with good manners. In a safe environment, his irresistible goofy and loving personality comes out and he is just a joy to hang out with.

Frankie is a 5 year old smooth hair red miniature boy and is looking for a new home as circumstances have changed for him. He is a very much loved little man who needs a calm home with someone home most of the time, Ideally Frankie would love an all female household as he takes a while to warm up to males Someone who understands skin disorders/allergies would be beneficial for Frankie as his owner has struggled with flare ups since he was 12 months old and has followed lots of vet recommendations, but unfortunately his coat improves and then he seems to have another flare up.

Snitzel’s owner made contact with us asking for assistance in finding a new home for Snitzel as they had relocated from acreage to suburbia and needed to down size.
Snitzel was looking for a home where he could have someone home most of the time and perhaps another dachshund as a friend.
We had an application come in from a gentleman who had recently lost his senior dachshund and was very sad and lonely so we arranged for him to meet Snitzel and the rest is history, Snitzel was happy to hop in the car and home to his new home he went, he met the dachshund from next door ( who spends most of the days hanging out with Snitzel as her owners work) and Snitzel is one happy boy. His new owner is also in love with him and they are enjoying their days together. As always it’s about the dogs And as we imagined, both Snitzel and his new Dad had a happy Xmas and we wish them the best in life
Meet Bertie a beautiful red standard boy who needed a home with older children and preferably someone home as he loves human company.
Bertie had a ball in his foster care home learning to be considerate of his fur foster brother and learning to walk on a lead without pulling ( most of the time), also that it’s impolite to bark at everyone and anyone, but it’s okay if alerting the household if something isn’t right.
It took a little time but eventually a family of Mum, and young adult son and daughter decided to apply to adopt a new family member as Mum was becoming rather lonely.
The young adults in the family were spending more time away from home studying and/ or working so Mum was home alone at lot of the time.
A meet and greet was arranged and it was instant love and Bertie had found his new family and a human mum to shower him with love.
Bertie spends his time going on walks to the beach to play in the rock pools, cuddled up on the lounge with his Mum or perhaps out on a walk with his trainer as Bertie has a trainer working with him to complete his education on manners when out in public as not every dog he meets wants to be his friend. Bertie is happy and enjoying his new forever home, Bertie has landed well and truly on his four paws and we can’t wait for further updates as his new Mum sends lots of messages and photos to show how happy he is
Slinky is a gorgeous little red smooth hair gentleman Who is 6 years old and resided In Western Sydney with his owners but due to a move into apartment living Slinky was just was not coping with the change and a decision was made to see if there may be a family wanting a new family member that could provide Slinky with the things he was obviously missing
Slinky was posted on our site and within an hour or so in came an application with all the requirements that Slinky would need.
We were excited to see that the application was in the same suburb and less than 4 minutes away
After a couple of phone chats, a meet and greet was arranged, and well it was love at first sight for Slinky and the new Mum and Dad
Adoption agreements were signed and Slinky went to join his new family
Slinky is loving his new abode with a yard he can explore and Mum or Dad always at home to keep him company.
One of the best things is that he goes on walks and sometimes meets up with his previous family including a fur sibling and gets to tell them how happy he is now
As always it’s all for the dachshunds and we are so happy for Slinky, his new family and also the fact that his previous family can get to meet up with him now and again
Is just the best outcome all round
Marli is a beautiful little Black and Tan mini girl who came in to be rehomed due to some issues with the other female dachshund family members.
We were a little concerned that we may not find a local home for her as she was situated in far north Qld but as often happens, we received an application from a lovely family looking for another furbaby to be a mate for their existing little boy Dash.
Fast forward to now and we are pleased to have received a message to report that Dash and Marli are now the best of friends, Marli has taken over guard duty and Dash is her second in command. She is now a valued and loved member of the family.
Ruby is the most delightful little red dachshund who came into our care when her family circumstances changed and Ruby wasn’t coping with the new arrangements. While in our care Ruby suffered an ivdd episode and her amazing foster mum raced her to ARH as her carer recognised the symptoms immediately. Ruby was assessed and as she was already not able to walk a CT was performed. The CT confirmed that there was disc matter in her spinal canal. A decision was made to go ahead with surgery to remove the disc matter to give Ruby the best chance to be up on her four paws again. Ruby struggled after surgery and her recovery in hospital was slow, she is an anxious girl and the busy hospital environment was stressful for her. We are so lucky and enormously grateful that Chrissy from DISA ivdd support group offered to put her life on hold and have Ruby and commence her rehabilitation at home in her calm environment. Katherine Apel, (rehab specialist ) devised a treatment plan for Ruby and she improved slowly but surely under Chrissy’s dedicated care. Meanwhile we had a lovely lady who sent us a message after seeing Ruby’s progress on DISA's page, asking if she and her husband may be considered as Ruby's new home once her rehabilitation was completed. After eight weeks Ruby was ready to find her new home and a meet and greet was arranged with the lovely couple who had put in an application after messaging us. Fast forward to now Ruby is with her new Mum and Dad and is living her best life (on all four paws) zooming around her apartment near the beach and has to be told continuously to slow down as Ruby does not know the word SLOW. We are so so grateful to Chrissy and Katherine for the dedication needed for rehab and to Ruby’s new family for giving this beautiful girl her new forever home.
Bonded pair Millie and Fergus came into temporary foster care through our SOS (Supawting Other Sausages) program when their dad had a fall and found himself in hospital. Unfortunately Reg has since passed and this beautiful pair are now looking for a new forever home together.
Millie is a 9 year old desexed wire haired wheaten dachshund. She absolutely loves the car, often running into the garage of her foster family hoping for a car ride. When in the car you wouldn’t even know she is there, she curls up and goes to sleep. She is gorgeous, yet cheeky when she gets to know you.
Millie does have a medical condition that is managed by daily medication.
Fergus is a 7 year old desexed red dachshund. He is quite a nervous little man and does suffer from separation anxiety. When he gets to know you, he will not let you out of his sight. Fergus loves curling up on your lap and enjoying lot’s of cuddles. Like many dachshunds he loves to lie in the sun. Since being in care Millie and Fergus have both lost 3kg. We feel this gorgeous pair would be best suited to a home where somebody is at home all the time.

Obi came into rescue sharing his foster mum with another dachshund.
It wasn’t long before Obi had captured his foster mums heart as he fits perfectly into the household, going out for puppercino’s , play dates and walks. His foster Mum has had quite a few other foster pups in care but Obi is the one who has caused her to join the “failed foster club”, they have even been on a mini holiday together. Welcome to the FF club Shailea and Obi we are so pleased you have found your forever home. As always it is all 4 the Dachshunds, enjoy your new life darling Obi and thank you Shailea for giving this boy his perfect home. You can follow his adventures here @a_nourished_snag
Bunnings Original owners made the sad decision to surrender him as his skin sibling was not coping with an exuberant sixteen week old puppy and they were convinced there would be a more suitable home for him.
Bunnings went into foster with a family that recently joined All4dachshunds as new carers and quickly made friends with their little female dachshund “Luna”, and also their Labrador puppy who is around the same age.
Fast forward to today our lovely foster carers have become the latest of our group to join the “failed foster” brigade and now Bunnings is a part of their family as it was love almost at first sight.
We couldn’t be happier as always it’s all for the Dachshunds first and Bunnings is one happy loved little boy loving his new family
Beautiful Meiko was surrendered as her previous owners circumstances had changed and Meiko was not coping with the changes.
From the beginning it was apparent that she would need a special home as she is the most gentle sweet girl who just wanted a human to have all of her own.
There were quite a few homes considered for her but they just didn’t quite fit her needs until Rosalie had a call from a retired lady who had not long lost her senior boy. This lady just needed a little soul to love and Meiko needed a human to love back.
A meet and greet was organised although we think it was never a question of just a meet as there was a welcoming committee waiting in the gated community to welcome Meiko.
Meiko walked into her new home checked out everything curled up in the doggie beds (there were one in each room) tried out the furry rug on the lounge and then found the kitchen, her favourite place, and basically moved in.
Her new Mum has reported that Meiko has taken over, loves her morning walks, visits all the neighbours , has ditched her crate for sleeping as she has found the human bed and is generally living the best life. I think they saved each other. As always it’s all for the Dachshunds, enjoy your forever home Meiko we will miss you.
Meet Arnold the most adorable little chocolate boy who unfortunately just didn’t get get along with the senior lads in his family, so his former owner made the absolutely heart breaking decision to ensure his safety by asking us to find him another home where he would be loved and cared for.
Arnold lived on the coast of NSW so an urgent call was extended to one of our amazing volunteers and Arnold hitched a ride to Brisbane, we didn’t have a local carer nearby and Arnold needed to move urgently.
Arnold was fostered by a family including another little female dachshund and human siblings, the youngest being three years old.
He thrived in their care especially as the ball that Arnold loves was thrown regularly for him to catch.
Fast forward to present time and Arnold has been adopted by a lovely family who fell in love with him from the minute they met him. He has a dachshund sister called Alice Jayne and humans who understand his ball obsession and make sure Arnold has ball time to keep him happy. We are so thrilled that Arnold has found the perfect home as always its all for the Dachshunds.
Not all of our cases are straight rescue & rehoming. Daisy has taken a lot of time, patience & money to get her into a position to be re-homed – At 14 months she was surrendered to All 4 Dachshunds. Daisy was a very anxious, scared little girl, bordering on aggressive tendencies. She was later diagnosed with Glenoid Shoulder Dysplasia and arthritis, so this could explain some of her behaviour, she had been in a lot of pain.
Successful surgery was performed and rehabilitation with her foster family. Daisy was finally pain free, which allowed her to trust people and show her own cheeky personality.
She recovered exceptionally well and was ready to find her forever home.
We are happy to report that Daisy has been adopted. She is living her best life in a wonderful home with her loving mum, dad and brother. She spends her day having fun investigating her new back yard, chasing gecko’s and birds, enjoying car trips and daily walks.
She wakes her brother every morning with a big lick on the face, oh and loves snoozing on the lounge.
Daisy is being thoroughly spoilt and this little lady totally deserves it. All the best Miss Daisy.
This little girl was surrendered for personal reasons from a young family and had another dachshund mate. She was collected from north of Brisbane by one of our all time supporters who drove six hours round trip picking her up and delivering her to Rosalia for foster and assessment.
She cuddled up to our volunteer on the trip and her tail didn’t stop wagging.
She immediately fit in with Rosalia’s current clan and was then off to the vet for desexing & health check. It was very apparent this little girl was a social butterfly and loved everyone including other Dachshunds and children so it seemed an obvious that she would fit in a home with another dog and / or small children.
We are pleased to announce she has found her FOREVER home and has a new fur sibling and skin brother... the smiles melt our hearts ♥️
Rosalia received a call from a friend who breeds Dachshunds asking if she still re homed little ones and of course she said yes.
She had been contacted by the owner of a pup she sold some 3 yrs before asking her to take the dog back as she had developed a taste for chickens and they were going to euthanise her if they couldn’t return her.
Rosalia’s friend drove out to the property where it became apparent that there was a reason for the chicken dinners as Sadie was housed in the chicken pen and saw them as a source of food.
Sadie was covered in fleas, matted fur, had a gash to her head and was very underweight. She also was not desexed and had obviously had a litter or two.
The friend scooped her up, bathed her, flea treated her and the next day drove her across to meet Rosalia at Bent Street vets. This is where she met the sweetest friendly little girl Sadie who showered her in kisses.
Fast forward a couple of months, Sadie has been desexed, vaccinated and loved and cuddled, met many other fur friends and has settled into her foster Mummy’s home with 5 others ......one of them a look alike , even to the same colouring, which was a surprise.
We are absolutely delighted to let everyone know she is staying where she is, she has her forever home.
Her foster Mummy is now her forever Mummy and her foster brothers and sisters are her new family.
They love her and she loves them.....perfect we think
Our beautiful twosome who were looking for their forever home last month, well we are so happy to announce that Doug & Zoe have found their forever home with Bridie and Tim.
We worked closely with Jools from Almost Home Rescue as a joint venture to find their forever home after Jools reached out. After many applications and subsequent phone calls, we provided Jools with a shortlist and she then arranged a meet and greet for Tim and Bridie to meet their beautiful babies.
These little dogs came into care with lots of health issues. Zoe had a grade 4 dental and desex. Doug was also very unsure of men. It didn't take him long to warm to Tim who gave him the time and won him over with his beloved ball. Doug had two retained testes for over 5 years. His surgery was very difficult and took two vets to remove them due to where they were. Doug is now protected from testicular cancer.
We are so happy for these furbabies and also for their new pawrents, they could not have found a more perfect home
Black and Tan 11 month old twins settled extremely well with their amazing foster carer, visiting the Hornets club for puppacinos, going for walks to improve their social skills, running around the football field, and the house and generally creating havoc wherever they went. They also enjoyed cuddles and had everyone who had the pleasure of meeting them falling in love with them.
The day that Rosalia received the sad phone call from their carer inquiring about surrender she had a gut feeling she had the perfect home waiting for these gorgeous boys, a two dad family waiting patiently for a pair, colour, size, sex, age or coat length didn’t matter just two needing a forever loving home.
Fast forward a week later, their foster Mummy took them to Brisbane airport and loaded them on a plane to fly to their new home, to their very excited new Dads who said they were shaking with anticipation waiting to meet their “boys” for the first time.
It was love at first sight for both the twins and their new parents and we have multiple messages, videos and photos over the first four days letting us know how much they love their rambunctious energetic cuddly boys .....we couldn’t be happier for both the twins and their new Dads ....some things are meant to be ....thank you to all our volunteers who enable us to do what we do ♥️
A little girl from Wide Bay was transported down by volunteers by tag team to go into foster in Brisbane, her name is Peyton (now known as Pey Pey) and she is a gorgeous red standard girl.
Peyton was very stressed on the trip down but once meeting her new foster Mum and Dad, she settled and soon was enjoying her long walks with her foster Dad (her foster Dad is allergic to some dogs so it was a huge plus that he had no reaction to Peyton.).
Fast forward to a week ago, we asked her foster Mummy for an update to start to look for her forever home, but it seems she had already found it, Peyton has now been adopted by her foster parents, they are her forever parents now and they are all currently on holiday (Peyton too), in far north QLD.
Again our heartfelt thanks to our foster careers and their commitment to our little rescues. We love nothing more than seeing a successful adoption, even if we lose a carer in the process, as it’s all about the Dachshunds first ♥️
Milly was surrendered to us with separation anxiety and also a tad under weight. We placed her with one of our fabulous foster carers, but at that stage we were not aware of how severe her need to have human company was and as our carer works part time a decision was made to move her to Judy, who has the experience to work with anxiety, crate train and who is also retired and at home most of the time.
Judy did an amazing job and fast forward to two weeks ago, Miss Milly boarded a flight to her forever home.
Her new family consist of a Mum, Dad and two human brothers, and a new fur sister, and both her new parents work from home, her new human brothers play ball with her, so Milly is one very happy little dachshund now.
Her new Mum reports that her anxiety is improving further still and that she is now a much loved member of their family. Enjoy your new life little one, we thank our foster carers and her new family for making this happen, as we all do this for the Dachshunds
Our two five year old Black and Tan twin boys who needed to find a new home. It was almost déjà vu for our wonderful foster carer Shailea, as only four weeks before she had had Max and Herbert the twin Black and Tan one year olds.
Frank and Noodle settled in with Shailea relearning toilet training (as they had been outside for a while and had forgotten this important part of inside living ) and also that they didn’t have to greet new people with happy nips for attention, they soon realised that everyone would share the pats and love without this silly behaviour.
Fast forward to three weeks ago, again poor Shailea put her fosters onto a flight to their new forever home as Rosalia had a lovely gentleman and his Dad who had recently lost their beautiful standard boy to old age, on the wait list. Their new home had an existing fur brother so it was fingers crossed that everyone would be happy with the new additions. We are told the new family unit is working well and both Frankie and Noodle love their new BIG fur brother and their Dad and Granddad and are looking forward to going on holiday to the “shack” out on acreage in the near future. Again we thank our wonderful foster carer and also the people who open their homes and hearts to give our rescues a new forever home
Buddy came into foster care as he was annoying all the neighbours with his barking as all he wanted was to be inside with human company. Buddy had suffered an IVDD episode and through conservative treatment has recovered enough to be mobile with an unusual gait. He also suffers from a skin allergy and had fur loss from this when our volunteer picked him up.
Once in foster care, his foster mum immediately took him to her local vet for a full check-up and treatment. Buddy was prescribed antibiotics and anti-allergy medication for his skin and with a good diet and the meds his skin improved. Buddy then went to our usual vet for his vaccinations, desex and also had x-rays etc to assess his level of recovery from his earlier IVDD
Meanwhile we were made aware of a lovely Lady who had lost her last elderly dachshund to illness and was very sad and lonely. This lady has had Dachshunds all her life and had considerable
experience with IVDD as well as skin allergies and was not at all perturbed about Buddy’s ongoing care, she just wanted a friend and was eager to meet him. Our wonderful foster Mum took Buddy for a meet and greet which resulted in Buddy staying in his new home as it was love at first sight for both of them.
Buddy has many beds scattered over the house and spends his days inside being the best companion he can to his new Mum .......neither of them are lonely any more.
