Skippy's Story...
Skippy is a happy, hardy girl who loves going for walks with her person. She's a little older, quiet and loves being with her foster mom. Skippy likes going out in the back yard, watching the birds and listening to everything that is going on. She really likes to snuggle and - if you let her sleep with you - she'll keep you nice and warm. Skippy was found running down Hwy 290 one morning and was lucky to be rescued. Skippy is early middle age (6-7 years) and dream of the day when she has her very own family. Do you already have a dog or cat? Not a problem. Skippy is a team player.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Skippy, 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.
