*** Please be patient, we are a very small organization and we all sadly have to work and have families just like you. We also know the excitement of finding a pet that could be your furever family member and we receive numerous inquiries
from other families who feel the same way. Our primary goal is matching the perfect family with our pups and do not practice first come, first serve". We are setting up many meet and greets with our pups and the family could be found prior to you even getting to meet them. We will make sure all potential adopters who inquired are updated if the pup has been adopted. We do not want to waste anyone's time and recommend you keep looking while you wait to hear from us and as always Thank You for adopting and not shopping. ***
Adoption applications will be sent via email only, we do not have them posted online anywhere or on a website.
My name is Lily and I am a lovable female Dachshund that is looking or my new furever home. Now don't pay attention to the fact I am 14yrs young because I am in excellent health and act like a young dog not a senior!! I am very friendly and have live with my mom all my life but sadly she is going to a nursing home and I need to find a home because I am not allowed to go with. My mom is looking to find me one before she goes because she loves me and wants me to find the best home. I do get along with other dogs just fine esp if they are my size but a puppy may be something different because they may want to play with me and be too rough,put it this way I would be a great companion for another dog my age so we can hang out together and play at our speed. I also would prefer a home with adult children or no children since I have not lived with small and young children my entire life and 14yrs later I would prefer it stays that way, we don't want anyone hurt. I can't tell you how I would be with cats, it was just me and my mommy and no kitties to take any of her time away from me.
I am housebroken and fully vetted and always have been very well taken care of, I was my mommies baby.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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