Sparkles's Info...

Sparkles's Story...
Sparkles and her sister "Kona" were surrendered to our group by a woman who is very ill with cancer. She wanted to be sure her pets could be loved and cared for, and with the help of her daughter began searching for rescue groups who could accept the dogs. Most groups either did not respond to their e-mails or told them that they did not accept owner surrender dogs. We were glad to be able to help these dogs, and offer their owner--who dearly loved them--the assurance that the dogs would be safe, cared for and re-homed in a carefully selected home.

Sparkles is a little plump, but with exercise and an adjusted diet, she will slim down. She is sweet, but timid girl and already is becoming more confident around people. Sparkles would make someone a loving, devoted companion.

UPDATE: 5/23/08 Sparkles is blossoming in her foster home, and comes up to people now and wags her tail. She loves all the interesting new experiences she is having with her foster family and has discovered TOYS! She thinks they are great!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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