Ericka Esperanza's Story...
Ericka is 3 to 4 year old mini. She came to DREAM in very bad shape. In fact, it's hard to even go back and look at her original pictures! Ericka is a toy collector and will bring all her toys into her bed or crate and happily lay with them. She is completely house trained and uses the doggie door easily. She can be crated for short periods of time, as long as she has her toys and a chewy in there to keep her occupied. Ericka’s sweet personality would likely shine a bit brighter if she was in a home with only a couple dogs. She will play with other dogs outside, chasing, etc. but inside she prefers to run to her bed and lay with her toys. She needs and will thrive in a forever home that will provide her lots of human interaction and affection.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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