WHO ARE WE ?
Hello and welcome to the website of the association Teckels Sans Doux Foyer (Teckels SDF).
The primary goal of our association, created in October 2007 and recognized as being of general interest in 2010, is to try to help as many dachshunds as possible and to promote this breed which is dear to us.
We we collect dogs from individuals, shelters, associations, in all regions of France, and of course those from dachshund breeders who want to retire or reform them. Of course, they are all NON LOF and STERILIZED. We do not have puppies, for that you have to contact excellent French breeders.
All this enormous work is carried out by a team of dedicated volunteers who can intervene quickly to get a SDF, welcome him for the necessary time, do first aid and monitor adoptions.
Not to mention our main link, the Relay Families, who welcome our little ones, observe them and re-educate them if necessary, make them treat with veterinarians who collaborate with our association. For homeless people who are too old and with serious pathologies who, we know, can never be adopted, we have Permanent Foster Families. All these people are volunteers entirely devoted to the Dachshund cause who are located in different regions of France and neighboring countries.
Enjoy your visit to the world of Dachshunds.
The Board of Directors.
Philosophy of our association
Our Association “Teckels Sans Doux Foyer” was created to help dachshunds in particular, and by extension to dachshund crosses and sometimes other animals, whatever their origin and without ever passing judgment. We also help their masters in difficulty, encountering a one-time or recurring behavior problem with their animal that they cannot solve on their own. Our Association was therefore created to help animals and the master who is at the end of each leash.
We are almost all lovers of these pretty sausages. But some like other breeds and they are also welcome in our Association.
Out of conviction, we almost never show mistreated or unclean animals. We prefer to treat them first, restore their dignity before showing them to you.
We take in young, old and sick dogs without any discrimination. We treat them, sterilize them, descale them, identify them, we give them all the medical care they need, including when they have serious pathologies, before offering them for adoption, we resociabilize them. Some are taken in by permanent host families.
We systematically sterilize all dogs of breeding age in order to regulate births, and leave reproduction only to breeders whose job it is.
Our dogs are primarily welcomed in relay families. This allows you to get to know the dog, see it evolve, be able to talk about it, better understand its character in order to better inform families and guide them as best as possible. We are looking for the right dog for the right family… and vice versa. The purpose of the placements is to meet the expectations and constraints of the adopters, in relation to the character and the needs of the dog. We are an independent Association that does not belong to any political or other current.
Our Association lives thanks to its volunteers, its members, donations and sponsorships.

If a dog is considered dangerous and after consulting a veterinarian, euthanasia may be pronounced, this remaining an exceptional case and decided by the Board of Directors.
