PICKLES's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

PICKLES's Story...
Pickles is a 4 year old purebred Dachshund that was surrendered to our rescue through no fault of his own. Such a happy gentleman, loves to be outside and roll in the grass. Very healthy, friendly and the perfect size at 15 lbs

A Dachshunds life span is 14-17 years, so Pickles is still a young man with lots of love to give.

He is neutered, UTD on shots including bordetella, on flea/tick prevention along with heart worm prevention. The only thing Pickles needs is a person to love him.

Our adoption application can also be found on our web site

Pickle's adoption donation is $495 which helps to cover the neutering, shots, bordetella (kennel cough), vet examination, heart worm prevention, flea / tick prevention, certificate of health and transport fee.

Pickles lives with a foster family in Memphis, TN. He will travel to his new family once he has been adopted. We use a weekly transport to the northeast and a twice monthly transport to the Chicago / Milwaukee / Minneapolis areas.

Our primary source of funding comes from this adoption fee. This fee allows us to rescue other dogs in danger of being put to sleep, injured or sick dogs and dogs that have never known the comfort of a home.

Thank you for considering one of our rescue dogs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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