If you are looking for a wonderful full-size doxie, Candy is your girl! This sweet lady is a Standard Dachshund who is working on transitioning from being a full-time outside dog. She’s enjoying more and more time inside, and loving it!
Candy is very affectionate and likes to be near her people. She also loves to play with toys, and snuggle up near you once she’s tuckered out. She’d do best in a fenced yard so that she can still enjoy her outdoor time, this is one outdoor-friendly lady! Candy would make a great companion for someone who enjoys hiking or walking.
Candy is remarkably well behaved: she hasn’t had a single potty accident inside, and she even does well with cats! Candy does show some alpha behavior (food and toy possessive), so we think she’d be happier as an only dog. Don’t worry, she’s got plenty of love to go around! She could be acclimated into a home with other dogs with proper supervision and training, but would not be a good fit for a home with another alpha.
If you want more information or have any questions regarding this affectionate, but semi-independent doxie, contact her foster mom, Kait (!
Candy would make a wonderful addition to a home that is patient with her and willing to train her around other dogs if needed.

=============== Information for all dogs/adopters ==============
If you have questions about this dog please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above. They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.
We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $45 Fee added for the required Health Certificate.
We will not adopt into the state of CT, RI or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you need to take this up with your legislatures.
We are now approved to adopt/foster in the state of NH but adopters will have to pay health certificate fee of $45.00 once to get the dog to our quarantine facility and another $50.00 fee to get the dog out of quarantine after two days.
To understand the adoption process through AADR, please visit the Adoption Information. Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.
If you are interested in adopting this Dachshund please Read Before You Adopt and then you can complete an Application.
Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers that will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast or up and down the West Coast. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well. For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
