This is Frank, a 1.5 year old dachshund that only wanted some love and care to be happy. Now he is so happy that even when sleeping he shows it. I did this video (watch below) to show how one can change the life a dog with some love and care. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlwFV_jmDHI&width=650&height=367 When my wife and I spoke with the previous owner, we were sure that he would die in a few days. He was 5 months old, no vaccines and weighted only 6.6 pounds (3 kg). By the way, the "vet" said that there was no need for vaccines. When we arrived to see him, we saw that it was even worse: as the owner had no experience in dog caring, he was locked outside in a 50 ft2 (5 m2) ceramic tiles back area, fed only with adult dog food, shedding excessively and unbearable smelly. His only friend was a torn blanket. We can't be sure, but we suspect that this mistreatment lead to the worse for him: he got totally deaf. We suspect that a overlooked infection did this to him. When we got him, he was afraid of shadows, glimmerings, peed everything (including himself), no tail wagging and fearful. By the way, until today he runs for his life whenever he sees a broom... Now, see him enjoying his dream so much that he even wags his tail and realize that we saved a life, bringing him happiness, is moving. So please, if you can, spread the adoption idea (and this video). You too can safe a life. Rafael Borges

We have grown up with dogs all of our lives. They greatly improve our lives and add so much happiness and love to our families.
Our families have had many different breeds including mixed breeds and mutts. Some of the dogs we've had are pugs, poodles, chihuahuas, beagles, german shepherds, bichons, soft coated wheaten terriers, pit bull / rottweiler mix, tibetan terrier, norwegian elkhounds and currently we have 3 long-haired dachshunds.
Our first dachshund, Lola joined our family in August of 2010 and we immediately fell in love with the breed. We rescued our second dachshund Skittles in July of 2011 and in 2014 we rescued Marley. We have an online store for everything about dachshunds at ILoveDachshundsShop.com
We wanted to create a community of friends who are just as crazy about dogs as we are so we started our Facebook page I Love Dachshunds in early 2011 and it has grown into an amazing community of over 558,000. In 2014 we started our Love The Breed page to expand on our love of all other dogs breeds.
Our mission is to educate people about the dogs and to bring awareness of the large number of dogs in need of rescue all over the world.
It is very expensive for rescues to care for these precious animals so we want to help them and you can help too!
For every purchase you make from our shop a percentage will be donated to a dog rescue.
Together we can make the world a better place for animals!
Holly & Martin, Lola, Skittles and Marley
