Meet Milo! A lovable 11 yr old red Dachshund available for adoption through CCDR

Meet Milo!   On Sunday, we were the last in the transport leg for two senior Dachshunds who were brought into the rescue (from a divorced home). Now you can "Meet" them- through this biography, photos and video I put together to help get them adopted.

Milo is a lovable (and overweight), red long-haired dachshund. He will be adoptable thru he's on line now.  


Hi I'm Milo!  I'm a senior male dog with a super-sweet personality. I'm a very docile red long-haired (mostly my tail) dachshund registered with the American Canine Association. I LOVE to take life easy. Life is a gift, and I'm a mellow guy. In fact, I'm cuddler and will come up to you and sit on your lap if you're sitting on the floor.

Sadly, I'm a victim of a divorce (like my brother Max, an 11 year old black and tan doxie also up for adoption) where my human parents split and I was placed in a foster home.

I really need to be in a home with another dog. I grew up with Max and am not happy unless I have another dog around.

I LOVE food. I confess I've eaten some of my brother's food, so I'm about 24 pounds. I need to lose weight and working on it. I'm neutered, heartworm negative and up to date on all vaccinations through March 2016! My teeth are in good shape and I'm healthy except for the weight thing, but we all like treats. I take heartworm and flea preventative on the 21st of each month.
I'm a happy guy who loves slow walks!
I normally eat twice a day, around 7 am and 6 p.m. Before bedtime, if you get out a milk bone I will stop whatever he's doing to jump into my bed. Then, if you partially cover the crate with a blanket, it makes me feel secure so I can sleep through the night.  

I don't mind taking a bath, and getting my nails trimmed is no big deal (although a lot of dachshunds don't like it). That's how easy going I am! 

I came into the rescue on Aug. 2, 2015 with my 11 year old brother Max (and we grew up together, so if you're looking for a pair of sweet seniors, we would love to be adopted together).

Milo is adoptable at Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue for an adoption fee of $150. For information go to: The adoption fee helps reimburse the rescue for all the up-front medical costs, vaccines, spay/neutering, etc. that are done to get dogs healthy and adoption ready.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
