Adult Dachshunds Available for Adoption

Occasionally we will have adult dogs and older puppies who we are trying to find a forever home for. When we do, we will post their information here. The adult dogs posted will be our sires and dams that are no longer breeding. We do not over-breed our dogs and will always retire our adults no later than 7 years old. All of our adults and puppies are fed high quality food, receive current vaccinations, and remain on a de-worming schedule to assure maximum health. We socialize both our adult dogs and our puppies, so they are always friendly and get along with other dogs. Any older puppies that would be on this page are puppies that for one reason or another, have just not found the right home. We never rush our adoptions or allow any of our dogs to go into a home where they can not receive tons of attention and become part of a family.

Payton is available for adoption!

Updated 12/31/15

Payton holds a special place in our hearts because he was the first cream we brought into our family. He set the standard for what a Boylan Dachshund is today. Payton is extremely kind hearted and gentle by nature. He is guarded with strangers but once he knows you he is very engaged. The ideal forever home for Sir Payton is a retired individual or couple who have the time, resources, and patience to commit to integrating Payton fully into their home and lifestyle. If you’re looking for a super sweet older dog with a kind nature and loving soul – then you would love Payton in your home. He was born on May 13, 2006 and is currently 9 years old. Please see an updated video and more pictures on Payton’s page.

Angel is Available for Adoption!

Updated 12/31/15

angel1Our stunning Angel has been an amazing dog for us and our program. She is as sweet as she looks and loves being held. Angel is currently six years old and in good health. She is a little guarded with strangers but quickly warms up to most people. Angel is the type of dog who loves being with her primary care giver. She is super soft and loves to have her head and face petted. Again a retired home is important for Angel because of her drive to be with her family. She could take a little time to fully integrate into her new home, but when she did – what a great dog for someone special. If you want a stunning looking and very smart sweet dog but don’t mind a little bit sensitive personality – you will truly enjoy Angel’s company. Please read below to see our requirements for the dogs we retire to their new forever homes.

Malia is Available for Adoption!

Updated 12/31/15

21Malia is a vibrant six year old silver dapple who is the life of the party. She is very social with most people and loves being petted. Malia is one of our most easy going dogs and has always been a confident leader in our pack. She likes other dogs but is a little bossy. Malia acts a lot like her mom Molly one of our original Boylan dachshunds. Malia will adapt fairly quickly to a new home and routine. She is very smart and loves her treaters. She is slightly bigger then mini at around 14 pounds but still loves a good lap. Malia is a fantastic dog for a home wanting a loving smart funny dog that enjoys snuggling under blankets and kisses.

Ci-Ci is Available for Adoption!

Updated 12/31/15

IMG_0028This is our beautiful shaded cream Ci-Ci, she is currently seven years old and in good health. Ci-Ci is a loving dog with her primary care giver but tends to not be big on strangers. She has always been a bit of a lone wolf in our pack but gets along with most all dogs. She is big girl and weighs around 14 pounds. She does like to be held and petted but just by the people she feels close to. She is like Angel a little more sensitive so she would take a bit to fully integrate into her new home. She is well worth the time investment and will make a great little companion to someone. She like other dogs but tends to not be overly engaged with them. Ci-Ci loves her food, blankets, and having her head stroked. Like many of our retired dogs Ci-Ci will do best in a more subdued environment with a consistent routine.

Adoption Requirements:

We require all the Boylan Dachshund dogs we retire to have full exit physicals, teeth cleaning, and neutering before going to their new forever homes. We are never in a rush to place our retiring dogs, and almost always require that you personally pick them up. We ask for verifiable referrals from all potential adopters and are always happy to provide potential adopters the same courtesy. We do prefer to have our older dogs go to homes where at least one adult is at home most of the time. Retired couples or someone who works from home would be the ideal candidates. This way someone is there to spoil them and spend lots of time making them feel loved and comfortable in their new home.

There is normally no cost for adopting one of our retiring Boylan Dachshunds other than covering final vet charges like teeth cleaning, neutering, and their exit check up. These charges normally run $300-$400 total. We also ask that adopting families give a donation to our non-profit K-9 Hope. For us it’s not about the money, it’s about giving our dogs loving forever homes. The type of caring stable homes where they will be totally spoiled and loved!

Asia has found a forever home in Virginia!

We have been blessed to have two Boylan doxie’s. Our first was Comet who was one of Asia’s puppies. After Comet was born, Bob and Lori decided to retire Asia. As soon as we found out, we knew we had to have her. It took a few months to complete the process. She had to be “fixed” before they could ship her and it was critical to both Bob and I that she heals completely before we put her on a plane. It was best for her to heal where she was most comfortable.

The most important thing to remember is to be patient and supportive once you bring home a retired sire or dam. It will take a little while for them to acclimate to their new home, environment, and family. All dogs and puppies move at their own rate. When we first got Asia she was having accidents in our house. We were stumped because it was only happening overnight even though she had full access to the fenced in back yard. The signs were all there and we weren’t listening to what she was telling us. She didn’t like going out by herself at night and would hold it because she was scared. You could tell every morning she hated to disappoint. We back up to woods and that was very different then the Boylan’s. Before we would go to bed at night, we would have all of the dogs go out together. It completely solved the problem and there are no more accidents. With lots of patience and love, Asia has made a complete transition. She did exceptionally well considering she was the last to join a pack of 4 (3 smooth coats and 1 long haired), making 5 once she arrived.

We could not imagine not having her as a part of our family! All of this is a direct result of Bob and Lori’s expertise in placing the right dog within the right home. We will never get a doxie anywhere but from the Boylan’s. Their dogs have great personalities, are beautiful, gentle, healthy, and loving dogs. In our minds, they breed the perfect doxies!!
