Tux's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Tux's Story...
My name is Tux. I'm approximately 6 years old, and I weigh 27 lbs. I live in a wonderful foster home in Texas. I'm a perfectly normal dog from the waist up but from the waist down, I have just a little difficulty. You see I'm an IVDD boy but I can from time to time walk just a little when I don't get in a big hurry which isn't very often.

Because I've IVDD, I must have my bladder expressed at least twice a day and I'm on a special diet to keep from forming crystals in my bladder that could form stones. I also have medication that I take twice a day to help with this also that I will have to take for the rest of my life. Now as I stated before I'm a perfectly normal boy for the most part. I would love a home with other doggies and kids over the age of 10 years.

I love to play fetch with my foster mom and play tug-a-war with my foster bother Little Johnny. And going outside is my favorite thing to do as I love to dig holes. My foster mom laughs at me cause I can dig a hole to China in 2.3 seconds because I'm a very strong boy from the waist up. And I'm so fast!!!! I have a cart that I use sometimes but not all the time. My foster mom covers my back feet up so I won't scrap them and I really love to get around like that the best. I chase my foster brothers and sisters around the yard, bark at the horses in the pasture and generally just have a great time.

And then there is the snuggling!!!!! I love to snuggle on the couch with my foster mom and get lots of belly rubs. But you will need to put my belly band on me when we do this and make sure I have done the other business as I don't have a lot of control over those 2 things. I will follow you everywhere you go and that includes the bathroom. Yes you will have no privacy what so ever whether you are in the shower, dressing, etc. My foster mom says I'm such a good boy and when I really like you I'll give you a kiss or two every once in a while.

I'm looking for my forever home with some one that has time for me with my special needs. I'm not broke but special so if you are looking for a 'Special' boy you won't be disappointed. So please call to get more information about me becoming your 'Forever Boy’.

Hope to hear from you soon, Tux

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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