Parker's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Parker's Story...
From Parker's foster dad: Parker is a sweet little man. He immediately bonded with me and his foster sibling, Chester. Those guys play with such enthusiasm! Parker is very well behaved, and shows no signs of aggressiveness when it comes to food, toys or his foster sib. He is just so happy to be loved and gives it right back. He is house trained and loves exploring the outdoors. He knows sit, stay and shake paws! Besides playing with Chester, he loves to play tug with his rope and settles down for a relaxing evening with a rawhide toy to chew. He is a great bed buddy, too…settles in and lays his head next to mine. He would make a great companion for any loving household.

If you are interested in adopting Parker, you can fill out an application right on our website! Go to dreamhappytails.org/adoptform.shtml. Parker 's adoption fee is $300. All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds. Parker 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

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