Adopt Halo and Deannie

Male Dachshund


Courtesy listing! Please contact Vicki at 308-631-2969

My name is Halo and my big brother is Deannie. My foster Mom rescued us from doggy jail where we were taken when my owner became too sick to care for us. Even though she found us in a strange environment on a cold cement pad, I was brave enough to give her kisses through the fence and she fell in love immediately. She rescued us within 48 hours of our confinement. Although my mom isn’t sure, she thinks we could be biological brothers and that we have probably lived together for all our lives (I have told her the whole story, but she needs a little work on her doggie “English”) I am a handsome 10 year-old red short-hair with a few dapple markings and weigh approx. 10LB. Deannie is a 12yr old light red short-hair, weighing about 12.5 lb (my mom says he is handsome also—however I am sure I am the best looking between the two of us). My foster mom considered adopting us and taking us to Nebraska. We do get along with other dogs, however we are very protective of our toys and she has an even older (wow!?!) partially blind dachshund who we may be a little too rambunctious to be left unsupervised with (in her large yard). We would like to be adopted together, but probably would be ok if our new home has another dog to be friends with. Also, we don’t do well with birds—we think they are food. We are kennel trained and walk well on a leash and enjoy playing with our toys. We are up-to-date on all our vaccinations and will bring our kennel, blankets, collars, and leashes with us. We love to snuggle and sleep in the big bed with our human’s at night, but also know how to sleep in the kennel.


PS: While I am happy to let my brother tell you our story, I want to add my thoughts… as I don’t think Halo even notices that I sometimes walk a little differently than he does and that steps are especially not good for me . I have a very cute bunny hop when I get a little tired, but I am exercising and getting stronger every day. My foster mom thinks that I may have had an lower back disc injury at some time in my life. I can walk up or off of a street curb without difficulty but mom avoids all other steps. I have good urine and bowel control as long as I am allowed potty breaks at 6-8 hour intervals during the day. I am a little shyer than Halo and take a little more time to trust my humans, but now my foster mom knows that I give great kisses and love to have my neck and nose rubbed after my trust is earned. Overall we are very young “seniors” and can’t wait to show our love to our new “forever” humans

Shelter Description

Welcome to Treasured Tails Canine Rescue. We are a volunteer based non profit 501c3 all breed dog rescue focusing on the animal shelters of Southern California. The dogs we save from shelters are the ones in danger of euthanasia. Highly adoptable dogs lose their lives due to many reasons. Shelter over crowding, an easily treatable medical condition or injury, a dog who is extremely shy or frightened in the shelter environment or in many cases the dog is simply in need of a make over at the groomers. Once a dog enters our rescue he/she goes into a foster home where we can get to know that dog better which allows us to match the dog up with the right family.

Our Mission
To be the bridge between shelter and loving home.

Areas Served

Riverside County, Orange County, Los Angeles County and San Diego County

Adoption Instructions

Adoption Process
Our dogs are as unique as you are! Adding a new family member is an important decision that will bring years of enjoyment to both human and canine. Our adoption process helps us match the right dog up to the right home. Adoption process is as follows:
-First we like to talk on the phone to determine if the dog you are interested in might be a good match.
-If so, we send out an application via email to be filled out and returned by potential adopter(s).
-Next step is meet n greet with all members of household both human and canine.
-Homecheck to make sure yard is safe and secure

All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped with lifetime registration, rabies, dewormed, and up to date on their vaccinations. Adoption fee is $200 for adults and $250 for puppies under 6 months. We adopt out to Southern California only.
