Shorty's Story...
Shorty
1 year old
Shorty was signed over to our shelter when he didn’t do great with the children in the home. His previous owners did let us know that shorty has been housebroken, would be best in a home without other dogs, likes cats, knows several basic commands and needs to be in a home without children. Shorty is a mellow little guy who would be happy in a quiet home where gets to be a little lap dog. Shorty is a big time sweetheart ready for his forever family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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