D.J.'s Story...
DJ is a ‘chiweenie’ — a Chihuahua and Dachshund mix with a gorgeous, soft brown coat and a piglet’s curlicue tail who we think of as our resident jokester. You can tell when you look at him that he’s up for a good time, and it’s why we love him. Born 9/16/2009, DJ shows no signs of slowing down. He's playful and gets along with all his fellow canines.

DJ’s low-maintenance vibe stands out as soon as you get to know him. Healthy and happy, he’s really just a big dog in a little dog’s body. He might bark at strangers from time to time, but he’s charming, too. Don’t expect him to lay around all day — DJ is a busybody at heart. He’d do well in the city or the country and gets along best in the warmer months, as he was born in the South. He likes to be bundled up come winter, and looks dashing in his coat and boots.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

D.J., a New York Chihuahua/Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Dachshund for sale in New York, or seeking a Chihuahua/Dachshund dog from a breeder in New York.

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