Favorite Toy:
The small Loofa dogs. He loves to destuff them! And he also loves Kongs.

Favorite Food:
Nature's Recipe kibble, and cheese slices

Favorite Walk:
the park

Best Tricks:
He can walk on his back legs for several minutes, especially when he's waiting for cheese! He's also great at 'fetch' and tug-o-war.

Arrival Story:
We foster for DARE Dachshund Rescue (a FANTASTIC group! www.DAREtorescue.com). We got Tater in and my husband fell in love with him. They are best buddies! Our other dogs are Mommy's babies, but Tater follows Daddy around everywhere like a little shadow. He sleeps on his chest. So we decided to adopt him....we just couldn't give him up!

Tater was a stray from Polk County, Florida. He's a wire-haired dachshund.

My mom needs to put a new picture of me on here. I've gained weight and I look much more cuter than that picture up there! Silly mom.
Well I have a friend named Maizy who is staying with us for a while. Her name is Maizy. She is my buddy, whoever adopts her better have other dogs because she LOVES to play! When she's not in her crate and mom or dad are not looking, she likes to get into stuff! I tell her not to but she doesn't listen! But mom and dad say that's what crates are for, and other than that she's a perfect dog. I don't know about all that PERFECT stuff........I think I'm the only perfect dog in the house! Anyway I really love her and I hope she finds a forever home.
We have a new Forever Dog in the house, too. Her name is Sasha and she looks a little like me. She doesn't like to play though, she likes to sleep and cuddle. I don't like her, but mom says we'll get used to each other and be friends in no time. Hmmph. Whatever.
Of course we still have Tony too. He's an OLD man. He doesn't like it when we play rough even though we don't mess with him. He growls at us! Mom says he's just old and grouchy and we should be nice to him. He mostly likes to sleep a lot too.
Me, I like to sleep myself. I especially like sleeping on Dad's pillow. I stretch out on it and Dad has a little tiny spot for his head. Isn't that nice of me to leave him a spot? Mom says I'm spoiled. I have to watch out the doors for a while before I settle down to make sure everything is A-OK outside. I am a watch dog! I am TOUGH! And then I am sleepy.
Life is good in my house!


Hi There!

My name is Tater Tot and I'm just a little guy. 9.8 lbs to be exact! I'm a wirehair dachsund. Everybody says I'm SO cute! Somehow, I ended up in an animal shelter. That place is a little scarey for such a tiny dog, and there were a lot of dogs who didn't have homes, just like me. But I got very lucky....a group called DARE Dachshund Rescue found out about me, and decided to take me in and find me a great home! So I ended up at a foster home in Gainesville FL. That was great because I'm a big GATOR FAN! GO GATORS!!! Anyway, I really liked my foster Dad a LOT. He's cool. I follow him around EVERYWHERE. I like to sleep right on his chest, all cuddled up. He loves to hug and kiss me. He thought I was pretty awesome, and he wanted to keep me forever! So now I have a forever home! That's pretty neat. Mom said they're going to take me to be groomed. That sounds like fun....I hope!
I have one brother and one sister, and a foster brother named Noodle. He's a dachshund like me. I'm sure glad I have this cozy home full of people who love me!
