Rocco Rockabilly's Story...
Say hello to Rocco Rockabilly. Rocco is an adorable long haired boy with a super long body! He was rescued from a shelter outside of Houston, and was very timid when he first arrived, but is now starting to come out of his shell. He likes being outside where he runs as fast as he can around the yard. We believe he's a little over a year old as he acts very puppy-ish and is generally submissive. He gets along great with all the other dogs!

He's just now discovering toys and will happily chase anything if it's thrown. He's not a foodie at all and has no food aggression. In fact, he will leave his bowl if an intruder steps in!! He's showing some separation anxiety right now, but even that is improving. He's not crate trained and does not like it at all but he is a great little car rider, provided he can rest his head on your lap where he lays like a perfect angel.

He's working on house training. The good news is that he does not lift his leg to mark inside! His temporary foster mom says she's never seen a Dachshund that can hold it as long as he does. He is a sweet, sweet boy who needs someone to love him unconditionally and provide him with the forever security he so rightly deserves. If that is you... you will have an incredible lifetime companion with Rocco!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocco Rockabilly, 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.
