Mckinney's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Mckinney's Story...
Meet McKinney - a wire hair dachshund who is ~8 years old & weighs ~12 lbs now, which we think is his ideal weight. He is SUCH a sweet boy and while a bit timid at first, he seems to be very adaptable. He just wants a warm bed, lots of good food and someone to love him. Once he is comfortable with you, he will follow you around and jump up on your leg for attention. Oh, and he LOVES a good belly rub too! Despite arriving at DREAM in rough shape, McKinney has blossomed into a lovely & social little dog. He is being treated for heartworms with a slow-kill method and is experiencing no issues and has no limits on activity. We believe McKinney to be smack dab in middle age, with several more happy years ahead.

Although McKinney's vision & hearing has been compromised in his prior life, he is in no pain and adapts well to his surroundings & soon will make himself right at home. His foster mom says "he is an easy keeper - housetrained, uses the doggy door, and gets along with other dogs." McKinney does enjoy the ability to roam a fenced yard, but not so much going on leash walks (due to vision). If you're looking for a little lap dog who loves to give sweet gentle kisses and wants nothing more than to keep you company, McKinney is the dog for you!

If you are interested in adopting Mckinney, you can fill out an application right at our website! Go to dreamhappytails.org/adoptform.shtml. Mckinney 's adoption fee is $275. All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds. Mckinney will go to his/her new home microchipped, altered, heartworm tested, and up to date on vaccinations. Most dogs' veterinary expenses are greater than our adoption fees.

DREAM is an all-volunteer rescue group, and we focus on the Atlanta, North Georgia and Savannah area. Because we are all volunteers, we can consider applications only within an hour of these areas. DREAM does not recommend purebred dachshunds for families with children under 5, or families planning to have children during the dog's lifetime. Dachshunds are often not patient with little kids, and kids can accidentally hurt a doxies's back.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mckinney, a Decatur Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund for sale in Decatur, or seeking a Dachshund dog from a breeder in Decatur.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Decatur already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Decatur breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dachshund breeders who help with Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Decatur paves the way for another one to be saved.
