Gretta's Story...
Hello everybody! My name is Gretta! I’m a one year old little girl, only 8lbs or so. My friends at NBS animal rescue best guessed me to be a Dachshund--MinPin-Chihuahua mix. I’ve got a long body and tail, with dotted white toes – which sort of flop when I am trotting to follow you around. I’m told it’s pretty cute.

At first, I can be a little shy, but not for long. If you've got some biscuits and like to wrestle with stuffed animals? Heck, we could be best friends! You can pick me up, but it might take me a little bit to relax and get comfy.When I am comfortable, I like to be held like a baby and have my belly rubbed. I'm an expert at cuddling up close. My foster mom laughs, because at night and in the morning, I have a ritual of burrowing deep in the blankets, wrestling thin air, hiding behind pillows and playing...then it is paws down CUDDLE TIME! I just looooooove to snuggle up close.

Lately, I've been spending my days in foster care, pretending to be tough to the cat (sometimes I bark at her...but honestly, she scares me when I get up close to her. She doesn't have claws, but who knows what cats are plotting, ya know?) My favorite game is chasing tennis balls and romping around the house. I could go pro with my stuffed toy wrestling experience. Did I mention I'm a great walking partner, and am 100% potty trained? I'm also pretty good with the kiddos now a days too. My foster mom takes me to visit her friends, and I love it when they give me treats and play tug of war with me. Wherever there is love and attention, that is where I like to be.

If you or someone you know would like an adorable addition like me in your family, please fill out an application at Even if you don’t have a home for me at this time – would you mind sharing my photo and story to help me find one, please? Thanks so much!

My adoption fee is $250.00 and includes DHPP vaccine, bordatella vaccine, De-worming, spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccine, heartworm test, heartworm preventative, flea/tick preventative, microchip insertion, bath, nail trim, ear cleaning, leash and collar and one week's worth of food.

If you think that I might be the perfect addition to your family, please contact the awesome volunteers at N.B.S. Animal Rescue at for any additional information or answers to any questions you might have.

You can fill out a simple online adoption application at and we will start processing your application right away! We do require that persons interested in meeting me apply online and be approved as an adopter first so please visit our website and submit your application today!

Our adoption process requires that any pet in your household be current on it's vaccinations and heartworm preventative as well as spayed/neutered unless there is a documented medical reason on file with your veterinarian. Dogs must be current on DHLPP, Rabies, and Heartworm Preventative, cats must be current on Distemper, Rabies, and Heartworm Preventative at the time of application.

While I hope that you have fallen in love with me and will fill out an adoption application right away, I understand if I might not be the perfect pup for your family. Would you please help me by sharing my picture and information on your Facebook page, or e-mail to your friends and family members? I'm a great pup and I really deserve a loving family to give all of my love and puppy kisses to! Thank-you for your help!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gretta, a Troy Dachshund/Miniature Pinscher puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund/Miniature Pinscher for sale in Troy, or seeking a Dachshund/Miniature Pinscher puppy from a breeder in Troy.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Troy 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 Troy 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/Miniature Pinscher breeders who help with Dachshund/Miniature Pinscher rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Troy paves the way for another one to be saved.
