Matty's Story...
8 year old, long haired tweenie

Hi! I’m Matty! Look at my handsome face – can you imagine that someone decided they no longer wanted ME!? I’m 8 years old and have a beautiful long coat. I’m tweenie sized; meaning not too big, not too small but just right! I am neutered, up-to-date on my shots and ready to go!
 
As a mature gentleman, I’ve come to appreciate the finer things in life! For example, cuddling on the couch or snoozing in bed! I mean really, what’s better than a stroll around the block and then a long nap in a comfy blanket!? You got it – nothing! Sometimes I get into a pretty deep sleep and don’t want to be startled, moved or disturbed but if you let me wake up on my own time I’ll come and find you when I’m ready for some love and attention! I also enjoy playing with my toys and am quite content to amuse myself with a good squeaker! Cats are alright by me, but I can’t be bothered with other dogs! Don’t get me wrong, I could stand to live with one other doxie bud who has the same calm, laid back energy as I do but I’d also be A-OK as an only child! I like riding in the car but when it’s time to get out, you have to take things slow with me – I’m like one of those grumpy old men! If you have a nice quiet house, some extra patience, are experienced with us stubborn old doxie men and would like to offer me a loving home to retire in, well, I think I would be just fine with that! – Matty
 
Matty definitely is a looker! And true to that doxie reputation, can have a bit of an attitude if you try and move him from the car or a bed! He is getting much better though – he’ll just need a patient and loving, doxie experienced home! He really is a sweetheart who would do wonderfully in a quiet household with no young children. He’ll become your trusty sidekick in no time, just give him the chance!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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