Dogs Needing Homes


Breed: Dachshund

Age: Adult
Sex: Female
Size: Small
Description: Elsa is a doxie mix who came to us from Tennessee. She is blind in one eye, but that doesn't slow her down. She has love and kisses for everyone, but she does tend to resource-guard her person from other dogs. Her two favorite things are belly rubs and laps. if there is an empty lap, she can't wait to fill it. She is very trusting of people, is great on a leash, good-natured, and house trained. When she needs to go outside, she runs around her foster mom to ask to be let out. She is spayed, up to date on shots, heart worm negative, and micro-chipped. Her adoption fee is $325.

You must fill out an adoption application before you are allowed to meet the animal. Please complete the adoption application located on our website.

Small Dog Rescue of MN does not negotiate the adoption fee on our dogs and we must charge sales tax on all adoption fees in order to comply with Minnesota state law. Please note that SDR is philisophically opposed to the idea of buying and selling animals, and we support any future legislation that would remove sales tax from adoption fees. Until then, however, we must charge it.

We are offering a microchip placement for your resident dog for small donation to our rescue

Please note that we do not have a shelter, and all dogs are in foster homes. Since we strive to provide the best possible care for our animals, sometimes we cannot answer emails promptly. Please allow 48 hours for us to respond to you.

You must be 18 years of age to make an adoption request
