Ginger Gladiola's Story...
Miss Ginger Gladiola recently became a new DREAM Dachsie. She was originally adopted from a local shelter two to three years ago, but when the family who adopted her had a new baby last year, they decided they could not keep Ginger any longer. Because no one was home during the day, Ginger was either crated most of the time or left in the backyard and although Ginger was fabulous with their older children, they didn\'t feel comfortable with her around a little one crawling and toddling around. As a result, they found that Ginger was being kept separate from the family most of the time, and this made her very sad and lonely.

A kind and caring neighbor convinced the owners to let Ginger spend the day with her three times a week, where she learned to enjoy using a doggy door and discovered how much she loves to play ball. According to the neighbor, Ginger is very loving and gives gentle kisses to whoever wants them and she is friendly with people who come to visit. Having mastered the doggy door, she will go in and out quite happily, without any accidents, but she’s frightened to be left alone outside. Ginger gets along fine with cats and other dogs too. She loves her dog bed, and if someone isn\'t tossing the ball to her, she will go lay in it with her ball right next to her!

This 4 1/2 year old girl is a special dog who loves to be held and she only weighs 11 pounds. Her foster says Ginger is the sweetest thing, but she needs a lot of human contact right now, and would do best in a home without very young children.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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