Mabel Marigold's Info...

Mabel Marigold's Story...
A Good Samaritan found Mabel lying in the street in front of his home. It became apparent that she wasn’t moving because her claws were overgrown into the pads of her paws and she was completely exhausted and dehydrated from the summer heat. She was taken inside, had her claws clipped, was fed, and was allowed to nap, all of which did her a world of good. She now runs to you with her tail wagging when she wants food or petting.
The vet estimates Mabel to be around 10+ years of age and she weighs about 11 lbs. She has a few missing teeth, but eats wet food heartily. We don’t know what her previous home life was like, but she is definitely a lap dog and well trained. She loves to have her face and ears stroked. She sits patiently in front of the door when she wants to go potty and makes it all the way through the night with no accidents. Mabel had no difficulties getting along with the 3 cats and 2 large dogs in our home. Each animal that came through the door was greeted with a quick sniff. She has not barked at anyone (even the mailman!) or nipped at anyone (even when we clipped her claws and she got nicked) and overall has a very sweet, calm disposition. She would be great for someone wanting a low energy dog to be a companion and snuggler.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mabel Marigold, 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.
