Seth's Info...

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

Seth's Story...
Hi there! I am a very clever boy. Through circumstances beyond my control, I found myself out in the cold when my family suddenly left their rental house -- and didn't take me with them! What the heck!? But I was smart. Even though I only weigh about 17 pounds, I was able to forage for myself for a few days while I made a plan. Then I started hanging out at the back door when I saw new people were there, and they were nice. They said they would help me, and they did! They found DREAM! DREAM got me to a docdoc and made sure I had all my shots and didn't have any heartworms -- whew! (Someone must have loved me, because almost all dogs in Georgia get heartworms if they don't get the preventative medicine.)

Now I'm in a foster home with even more nice people, and their dachshunds. I have a yard to play in with them, and plenty of comfy places to nap. These people say that one day I will have a home of my own -- a forever home. That sounds really good to me, but in the meantime I'm a happy guy.

My foster dads say I'm a great little guy with a lot of love to give. They are right -- I am very eager to please and I love to hang around the peoples.... whether they are on the couch where I can snuggle with them, or on a long walks. They are teaching me to to walk on the leash and I am doing well with all their praise for when I do it right. They laugh whenever they see me carrying around my favorite duck toy throughout the house, but I don't know why that is funny. I have a pretty high need for exercise and activity, so I need a home that will have plenty of chances for me to work off my energy. I love running around in the fenced in backyard, and I come when I am called. I try to do a good job listening to the people, because it is important to me to be part of a family.
I also enjoy playing with my foster brothers and sister at the dog park. I hope my new forever home will have another doggie for me to play with.
I am housetrained, but in a new place I will mark my territory. They are working with me on that and we are all trying hard to be patient with each other. I let the people know when I need to go for a walk or outside to use the bathroom. Like most doxies, I have a great appetite and love a treat here and there, so my new family will need to be careful that I do not beg and end up chubby, which could be bad for a dachshund's back. I can also jump really high! So don't plan on containing me with a baby gate! (That's why my foster dad said he thought I was part min pin -- or maybe jackrabbit or kangaroo!)
My foster dads have seen me get along well with kids, dogs, and adults, but we haven't tried me out with a cat yet.
I am as sweet and loving as can be and I really want to get myself settled down forever. Are you the kind, patient, loving people for me?

If you are interested in adopting Seth, you can fill out an application right on our website! Go to dreamhappytails.org/adoptform.shtml. Seth 's adoption fee is $300. All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds. Seth will go to his/her new home microchipped, altered, heartworm tested, and up to date on vaccinations. Most dogs' veterinary expenses are greater than our adoption fees.

DREAM is an all-volunteer rescue group, and we focus on the Atlanta, North Georgia and Savannah area. Because we are all volunteers, we can consider applications only within an hour of these areas. DREAM does not recommend purebred dachshunds for families with children under 5, or families planning to have children during the dog's lifetime. Dachshunds are often not patient with little kids, and kids can accidentally hurt a doxie's back.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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