Dougie's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Dougie's Story...
Dougie might be small at 12 pounds but he has a big, big heart and loves everyone—dogs, cats, kids, people. He has never met a stranger, although he can sometimes be a little bit shy. He currently lives with two other dogs and three cats and will romp and play with anyone who will let him. He is precious. Dougie has energy like a smaller dog but is eager to get in your lap if he is invited. No destructive habits—he is an easy dog. He is recovering from a bad case of Demodex (non-contagious) and his hair is growing back beautifully. He isn’t any the worse for wear and it doesn’t slow him down at all. Dougie is a snuggle bug and loves to be close by his person and will follow his person from room to room unless he is snoozing—under the cover please. He is submissive but his personality really shines when he is feeling the love and he really wins everyone over who meets him. He is that special. He is crate trained and is fully vetted.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Knoxville 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 Knoxville 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/Chihuahua breeders who help with Dachshund/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Knoxville paves the way for another one to be saved.
