Eli's Story...
Say hello to Eli! Eli is an adorable Chihuahua/Dachshund mix, otherwise known as a Chiweenie! He weighs approx. 10 pounds fully grown and he is approx. 2.5 to 3 years old. (He still has a lot of puppy spirit in him!) Eli will be vetted, neutered and fully vaccinated before adoption, with all paperwork transferred to his new owner. Eli has the personality of a true charmer! This little prince is happy-go-lucky, curious and smart. He is sometimes spunky and vivacious, and always a true lover! Eli will follow you to the ends of the earth, tail wagging the whole time! He is over the moon for gentle back rubs and quality time with his owner. Eli lights up with happiness when you talk to him, take him for a walk or just give him some TLC. His love for people is evident. He loves to be given attention, treats and kisses! Eli is an excellent snuggler and you couldn't even imagine a more perfect lapdog! Eli wins the award for most personality in such a little pup! He brings a smile to everyone's face, and he's a real favorite amongst the volunteers! Eli is super friendly and sweet. He would do well in a home with pretty much anyone who can be mindful of a pint-sized pup. Just like with any dog in a new home environment, Eli will need some training from his future family, but we think he will pick up on training quickly. Anyone would be lucky to have this pooch as a loving addition to their family! To adopt, please email with a brief description of who Eli will be living with and the home he'll be living in, plus any additional info! We will reply with an adoption application to get to know you better. Our adoption process is simple and easy. We look forward to hearing from you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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