Dixie Lou's Story...
Dixie was purchased as a puppy by an elderly couple who kept her as an only dog for almost 7 years. She was doted on, and allowed to rule the house. She is a very sweet dog, but does not appreciate being reprimanded when she misbehaves. Although she would probably prefer to be an only dog, she does get along with other dogs. She does use the dog door and goes outside to do her business, but does not always make it. She does need some training that the couple who owned her was not able to give her. She will use a pee pad if it is there, but sometimes makes use of whatever is available. She is a very smart dog; very loving, and wants to please. She would also prefer to get all of the treats and all of your love.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston 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 Houston 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 Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
