Artemis's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and not good with cats.

Artemis's Story...
Artemis is a 4 year old chiweenie boy. He is super sweet, very spunky, and as loyal as can be - so easy to love! Arty is a first rate snuggler and loves to give you delicate little kisses. Arty also loves spending time in the backyard showing the neighborhood squirrels how fierce he is and chewing up all the sweet gum balls. When he's inside, his first choice spot is in your lap, but he's equally happy spending time at the window watching for critters and in his doggy bed in front of the heater vent (in the winter of course!). He is a little wary when introduced to new people (men in particular), but with patience and treats he makes fast friends!

If you are interested in adopting Artemis, you can fill out an application right on our website! Go to dreamhappytails.org/adoptform.shtml. Artemis 's adoption fee is $250. All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds. Artemis 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 doxie's back.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Artemis, a Decatur Dachshund/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund/Chihuahua for sale in Decatur, or seeking a Dachshund/Chihuahua 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/Chihuahua breeders who help with Dachshund/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Decatur paves the way for another one to be saved.
