At the South Florida Dachshund Meetup Group you meet fellow doxies who gather for play dates and camaraderie. The events are at fenced dog parks, public parks, or indoor play areas for off-leash play, with an occasional beach or water park field trip, and even seasonal parties and restaurants! We also go for dog walks, along with dogs of all breeds.
All small breed dogs are welcome to join as Honorary Doxies. You are welcome to come to the meetups, even if you don't have a dachshund. *** THIS GROUP IS NOT FOR BREEDING AND/OR SALE OF DOGS. Members who use this group for breeding or sale of dachshunds will be removed.***
We support the rescue and adoption of dogs. If you’d like to "test drive" a dachshund, we have information on how to be a foster parent to wiener dogs that were rescued from the shelter. For more information:
They are south Florida's experts in neurological conditions and treat more Dachshunds with back or neck problems than any other hospital in south Florida. They also treat all of Dachshund Rescue of South Florida's dogs with neurological conditions.
You can also learn everything you need to know about Intervertebral Disk Disease in Dachshunds by texting DACHSHUND to 442-22.
Thank you for being a Doxie Lover, and we hope to see you at the next South Florida Dachshund Meetup!

The Venetian Pool has gone to the dogs! Little dogs get the pool to themselves between 10 A.M. AND 1 PM. (Tip: get there early so that you don't have to wait in line for too long)
Bring your dachshund to this absolutely gorgeous pool filled with spring fresh water!

ABOUT THE POOL
Venetian pool is one of Miami’s most historic landmarks. The pool was created in 1924 out of an old rock quarry and is currently the largest freshwater pool in the United States. This 820,000 gallon pool is fed with cool spring water daily, and features two waterfalls, coral caves and grottos. The water used in this pool is freshwater that is circulated daily through Florida’s aquifer so it is gentle on your dogs coat (unlike everyday chlorinated pool water).
