Colonel's Story...
Colonel's adoption fee is $350.

Colonel is a 6 year old Miniature Dachshund that weighs about 8 pounds. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, micro chipped and recently had a dental. He loves people and enjoys cuddling and playing with the other dogs in his foster home. Colonel had back surgery about two years ago; however, sadly, it was not completely successful. He can walk, but his back legs are weak, and he does not have complete control of his bowel and bladder. You can predict his need to eliminate shortly after meal times. His lack of control of bodily functions can also be managed by sending him outside, putting him on a pee pad every 4-5 hours or use a belly band. His foster mom has seen some improvement in Colonel`s control of his back legs and believes that he could improve even more with physical therapy to strengthen his leg muscles. We feel that Colonel needs a doggie companion in his new home. Colonel`s voice is surprisingly sharp and loud (it’s a wonder that such a tiny little guy can make have such a big bark), and he can be a bit vocal, especially at meal times or when he would like to be cuddled.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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