Velvet's Info...

I am already spayed, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Velvet's Story...
Velvet is a 2 year old black and tan female longhair dachshund. She is a cuddly, sweet girl who loves people and loves attention.

Velvet, along with 14 other dogs, was turned into a small town animal shelter by a breeder who was ill and "going out of business". Thanks to her neglectful puppy mill breeder, Velvet is heartworm positive and has started treatment, which requires her to be confined to a crate for up to 8 weeks in order to restrict her mobility. In addition to heartworms, due to the filthy conditions in which she lived, Velvet also has round worms, whip worms and hookworms. She is being treated for all these as well. When Velvet is fully recovered she will be spayed and microchipped.

We estimate that Velvet will be ready for adoption around the middle of September.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Velvet, 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.
