Gia's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Gia's Story...
Gia is the sweetest little girl. She is mellow, and plays well with her liter-mate. However, when it is quiet time, she doesn't mind just cuddling up and relaxing. She loves to be a lap dog, but also likes to get down on the floor and wrestle with her sister. She is a great kisser and a fantastic snuggler. She is a slow mover due to her short little legs, but she puts the effort in when trying to keep up with her sister. Gia is 10 weeks and 5 pounds. Since we don't know at all what doggy genes are in the dogs make up (we don't know who mom & dad are!), we are just guessing on breed.

All dogs are spayed/neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. They have all had a vet exam, are up to date on vaccinations, have been given a dewormer, are treated for fleas, have a heartworm test if over 6 months old and are up to date on a heartworm preventative.

Please note that because we require a home visit at the time of adoption we can only place animals in homes within a 60 mile radius of Minneapolis. If you are interested in meeting this dog please fill out the pre-adoption application on our website at www.safehandsrescue.org under Adopt and we will get back to you to arrange a meeting in the foster home.

We also have an Adoptable Dog Meet & Greet on Saturday, May 31 at Fetch Delivers 783 Harding St NE, Suite 100 in Minneapolis from noon - 2 pm. Please email safehandsapp@gmail.com to verify they will be attending.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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