Izzy-LONGHAIR's Story...
Izzy is an adorable 10 year old mini doxie who loves attention and gets along great with other dogs. She is a longhair doxie...well, sort of... She has color dilution alopecia, a genetic condition common in blue/fawn doxies and other breeds with these unique colors that causes them to go mostly bald. Other than needing a coat in the winter and protection from sunburn in the summer, she doesn't need any special care and there is no treatment. We hope someone will overlook her condition and open their heart and home to this darling little girl.

3/7/14- We are getting 9 more little senior doxies from the horrible hoarding situation today! Over 100 dogs were found living in filth including 40+ purebred doxies, mostly seniors. We took in 10 last month and all but wire-hairs Harry and Hannah have been adopted, so we were able to offer to help with even more! These special little guys and gals have survived unimaginable horror but remain sweet and love attention, and get along great with other dogs especially other doxies! Please email us if you would like to foster or adopt one of them... we also have several other purebred doxies rescued from local shelters/surrenders including a few younger ones. Any doxie lover is sure to find one or two to fall in love with!

We do not have a shelter- all our pets are in foster homes and can be seen by appointment only during the week, or at our weekly pet adoptions every Sunday at the Animal Clinic of Morris Plains from 12:30 to 3PM at 3009 Route 10 East next to 5 Star Car Wash (formerly Boulder Car Wash) in Morris Plains (Denville on GPS). To help us better match a pet to your household, we request you fill out an application on our homepage and copy and paste it into an email, or print it and bring it to our adoption day when you come. Local inquiries only please- we do not do long distance adoptions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Izzy-LONGHAIR, a Oak Ridge Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund for sale in Oak Ridge, or seeking a Dachshund dog from a breeder in Oak Ridge.

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