Wag N Train Rescue




Meet Alex

  • Breed: Dachshund
  • Age: Young
  • Gender: Male

Alex is a mighty sweet little treat! He's a 4 yr old smooth chocolate dapple dachshund recently released from the commercial breeding industry. This 12 lb. love bug has one brown eye and one stunning blue eye. When he flashes that baby blue at you, you will be wrapped around his little paw.

Alex loves spending time outside, playing with toys and wrestling with his dachshund foster brother. He will need a resident canine to continue to teach him how to be a dog and to play with. Alex will also need a securely fenced yard so he can enjoy the outdoors safely. He's working on leash training and is doing pretty well, but it's a work in progress. Alex can be a bit timid and gets nervous around loud noises, so he would do best in a quiet home with no young children.

Alex does fine in the kennel, but would prefer to sleep in bed with you at night. He's quite the little snuggler. He's doing well with his potty training as long as you take him outside regularly. He's quickly getting the hang of how to live life outside the commercial breeding facility and is enjoying every minute of it.

Alex has Ear Margin Vasculitis, which means he has low blood flow to the ends of his ears. It's not life threatening, but it is a chronic condition that will need to be treated for the rest of his life. He is currently responding well to Pentoxifylline and will need to stay on that medicine.

Otherwise Alex is a healthy, happy, loving young guy that's ready to find his forever home.

My adoption donation is a minimum of $500. Funds go towards the high cost of care for our foster dogs.


Wag N' Train Terrier Rescue adopts nationally (the contiguous 48 states) if we can locate a volunteer willing to assist with a home visit. Approved adopters need to be prepared to travel to the Omaha area, we do not ship our foster dogs and we do not arrange transports.

Unless otherwise indicated, our foster dogs require a securely fenced yard. Invisible/underground fencing does not classify as "secure."

Our volunteers process applications that meet the MINIMUM criteria for a specific foster dog. If you do not meet the baseline requirements, we encourage you to continue to monitor our Facebook page and website for a foster dog who is a great fit for your lifestyle!

Please refer to the Additional Details section of the bio for specific information about the foster dog. We receive a high volume of applications and can only process applications that meet the criteria for that specific dog.
