  Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you all know that the Dakota Dachshund Rescue puppymill dog, Rhett, was found in Sioux Falls a week ago.  Thanks for allowing me to post the Lost flyer even though many of you aren't from the SD area.  Everyone is so relieved Rhett was found and is now safe at his foster's home. 

Speaking of foster dogs: I currently foster Luke Skywalker for DDR and just found out someone has applied to adopt him!  I have had the honor of fostering Luke in my home for the past 6 months and am happy to say that the scared, skinny puppymill boy has blossomed into a happy, playful, loving dog!  I am very sad that he will be leaving me soon, but I'm excited for him to continue on his journey here on Earth in his forever home!  Plus, with Luke moving on, it will open up another foster home spot for another dog in need.

I blog on the website for Luke, so feel free to check him and other dachshunds in need of homes on the DDR website: www.dakotadachshundrescue.org

Thanks everyone!

  My short haired dachshund Poppy has really obvious baldness (it is now on her tail as well as legs, stomach, chest and head) I mentioned it to the vet before and he said that if there is no redness or bad skin then chances are its nothing he can cure just hereditary baldness.
I was hoping anyone could offer any advice on maybe any vitamins/bath oils/food changes that might benefit her and help her to grow the hair back?

I am taking her to the vet about it when I get her annual vaccinations done (in a months time) but I want to try foods/vitamins first otherwise the vet will charge a lot for tests that might come out inconclusive

Also my long-hair has not got any hair loss problems so I'm stumped if they BOTH had it then at least I could suspect something but as its just her it makes it even more weird!

So, we now have 4 dogs at our house! Jelly Bean and Monty are our's (Nolan's and mine); Luke is still with us, the foster dog from Dakota Dachshund Rescue; and we are "temporarily" fostering Scooby, a 10 month old miniature dachshund. He is so much fun! I really want to keep him, or at least continue to foster him until he goes to his forever home. He is so loving, energetic, playful, and sociable! I know Nolan loves him to death, too, but not sure how he feels about keeping him around for a while. I bet if I offered to feed them every day (in the mornings and most of the nights, unless I'm not home and he is home), he'd be cool with it! :)

Also, for those of you in the SIOUX FALLS, SD AREA:

A FOSTER DOG FROM DAKOTA DACHSHUND RESCUE WAS LOST LAST NIGHT AROUND 8:30 PM! Below is the flier with his picture and other information. His name is RHETT and he is a LONG-HAIRED BLACK AND TAN DACHSHUND.  I guess he came from a puppy mill and is still a bit scared of strangers. However, there is a phone number to call if you see him or are even able to get ahold of him. PLEASE HELP!!!

Lost Dachshund



Please help find Rhett!
Rhett escaped from the fenced-in yard of his short term foster home. He was last seen in an open field south of S. Stockwell Circle which is in a new housing subdivision s
outh of 57th, between Cliff Ave

and Southeastern in Sioux Falls, SD.

Rhett was a breeder dog from a Nebraska puppymill that is now in foster care

   with Dakota Dachshund Rescue so may be very scared, but is a sweetheart. He is wearing a new yellow and blue collar. Please call Diane if you find Rhett or spot him: 605-310-8443.
