His Story:


Herbie was rescued, along with over 700 other dogs, from a horrific puppy mill in Nashville, GA in March of 2019.  Refuge Rescue took in 15 of these dogs. He is currently living in a great foster home with 2 other dogs. Herbie’s lack of veterinary care and poor nutrition resulted in the removal of all of his teeth. He is very timid and slow to build trust with new people that he meets. He is a handsome, chocolate-brown and white long-haired Dachshund mix, weighing approximately 9 lbs. The veterinarian estimates that he is 5 years old. Because he is shy and skittish, Herbie would do best in a family with a confident dog and a fenced yard.

If you would like to meet Herbie and make him a part of your family, please fill out an adoption application at RefugeRescue.org His adoption fee is $275 and includes his neuter, recent dental, microchip, Bordetella vaccine and other vetting.
