Abby's Info...

Abby's Story...
Abby is a 1 year old, pure bred piebald female dachshund. She is new to DREAM, but has settled into her foster home just fine with 3 dogs and five children. Abby is very friendly to adults and children of all ages and just wants someone to curl up with in a nice chair or throw a few toys to her. She even goes outside on her own to potty and sleeps all night in her crate with no accidents! Her foster mom is working on no jumping but once you tell her no jump and turn away she will sit and wait for you to pet her. She is a sweet, loving little bundle of cuteness! Would you like to meet Abby?

If you are interested in adopting Abby, you can fill out an application right on our website! Go to dreamhappytails.org/adoptform.shtml. Abby 's adoption fee is $450. All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds. Abby 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

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