Chocko's Story...
Chocko is a very handsome 8-year old, 17-pound long hair red with black overlay doxie boy. He is calm, gentle, loving; a very sweet boy, a bit timid at first. He's very quiet for a doxie! Chocko does not feel the need to bark in his foster home. Chocko got a bum rap, which found him surrendered to a kill shelter because he nipped a 9-year old child when the child fell on top of Chocko, startled and hurt him. His surrendering family told the shelter that the incident was an accident and not Chocko's fault. Those of us who know our doxies realize that doxies and kids sometimes are not a good match; and, even if they can happily live together, doxies are not labs and should not be treated as if they are. Chocko seems fine with children, but it's probably best he go to a home without them. Chocko is a very upbeat guy who enjoys chilling on the sofa with his person, sunning on the patio, running in the yard with the other dogs -- a very well-rounded furboy! He greets you in such a happy manner and takes no time at all to be on his back asking for a belly rub. He's so gentle. And he sure does have the softest fur! Chocko really is a great dog who sure deserves a family to cherish him. He'll be devoted in return. Chocko's adoption fee is $275 to help with his vetting and support rescue.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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