Gracie in the garden.JPG


 Gracie was born in Higganum, Connecticut, to a breeder called Skip LaRue.  In the winter of 2010, Gracie’s doxie-dad, Aaron, traveled from Dallas to Higganum to lovingly pick her up and bring her home to his family in Dallas, where she has ruled the garden ever since.

Gracie’s dog-father was a champion red smooth-hair dachshund named “Cashew” and her mom was a wire-haired boar dachshund named “Bonsai”.  We think Gracie is fleet-of-foot and an excellent little hunter because of her mother’s prowess in this department.

Gracie’s half-sister, “Lulu” (they share Cashew as their dad) is also in the family and lives in Rhode Island with Aaron’s sister.Gracie enjoys being outside, taking long walks and playing fetch.  She loves coming to Camp Bow Wow and barks excitedly the minute she sees her friends there.

With dachshunds in five branches of the family, Gracie, with her indomitable spirit, carries forth this tradition on her little shoulders.





Hi my name is Olivia Stevens. I am 2 and a half years old! I’m not really sure who my real parents are, as I was adopted when I was only 3 months old. I was playing in a park in north Dallas all alone and luckily someone found me and brought me to DFWrescueme. That’s when my parents found me and took me home!  

I live in Uptown in a high-rise apartment and love to look out the windows and count the construction cranes. I like to play with tennis balls and will destroy any toy with stuffing. I love to go to the park and play in the creeks and ponds (even though I’m afraid to swim), my parents always make me take a shower when I get home- luckily, I like them a lot. I travel with my mom and dad and like to run down the jet bridge to the airplane. I’ve been on 10 flights already!!  

During the week I love going to camp to see all of my friends- it makes me super tired and I get to go home and snuggle with mom and dad. My favorite food is steak and bone marrow bones. I also like going to brunch with mom and dad because I always get special treats!  

I am very fortunate for DFW Rescue Me and could not image better family and friends. Thank you, Camp Bow Wow, for featuring me as the camper of the month!
