Grandiose Gus Gus's Story...
Gus Gus is a neutered male Dachshund about 10 years of age. He is missing patches of hair at the moment due to a flea infestation when he was first surrendered to us. He has some alopecia because of it, despite his fleas being completely gone . Gus was also severely overweight when he came and weighed almost 18 pounds, barely able to walk and quite uncomfortable. The doctor suggest he weigh between 12-14 pounds, so he is on a very strict diet and has dropped several poiunds. He is not an agile dog by any means, even after significant weight loss, and needs a one level home. In his foster home there is a step leading out to the backyard that is only about a 6 inch rise. He finds it difficult to get up that height without a ramp or we have paving stones set up like two stair steps. He had a dental and a blood check and is ready for his new home.
Gus can sometimes be grumpy if he is told to do something he doesn't want to do or if you grab his collar. He is easily motivated with treats and likes the attention of people, but doesn't like to be forced to do anything. Because of this he will not be adopted into a home with young children. He loves his pillows and blankets and enjoys burying himself in them. Gus is very low activity and really wants to lounge around. He is not going to be a hiking buddy for you! He is somewhat housebroken, but will use a puppy pad. He doesn't like going out in the cold or in the rain. We feed him outside under the patio and that has helped him so that he is not using the pads as often. He is unable to use a doggy door. He is not crate trained but stays in a small babygated area while his foster owner is at work and does well.

Gus's adoption fee is $50 plus a $17.99 microchip registration fee. He is microchipped, neutered and vaccinated.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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