Luke is a precious little 1 and 1/2 year old male longhair Dachshund mix. He weighs 13 lbs. His current owners are suffering family health issues and must move from their home into an apartment that does not allow dogs. Please read about Luke's past in order to understand how rough this little guy has had it and how he needs an owner to understand where he is coming from and how to help him leave his past far behind and get on with having a wonderful life. Here is what current owner has said about Luke's past and about how Luke is doing today.

Luke needs a new home. Please read the whole ad before calling ! We adopted Luke in August of 2013 from a local pet adoption agency. His first year was quite traumatic for him as we learned (From the adoption agency that followed him through this time) that he first was removed from an abusive home that used to kick him with their feet whenever they fed him food or treats (He does not like feet/shoes) as he feels defensive, after that the family dumped him and he ended up in another animal shelter, which the next family adopted him and they insued to lock him in a cage and tease and beat him through the cage. After that he was given back to the agency, that's when we got him he was extremely skidish and timid but as time has gone on he has improved by leaps and bounds. But now, due to family health, we must find another family to care for our boy Luke. He is loved and we want to make sure he never suffers abuse of any kind again. Here is more about his personality.

He is good with strangers only if he is being held up to them when they meet as he was kicked in the face and still does not like people's feet right next to him. He is great with our 9 year old daughter and our friends he loves also. He does bark when he is outside watching through the fence or if someone knocks on the door. He is neutered and was up to date on shots as far as what the agency said. He is housebroken no accidents lately. He has wonderful house manners and he loves treats and chew toys. Lots of energy and loves to run laps around the house !! He weighs about 14 lbs. We have a little under 3 weeks until we move to an apartment.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Luke-"saved from abuse", a Los Angeles Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund for sale in Los Angeles, or seeking a Dachshund dog from a breeder in Los Angeles.

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