Skippy's Story...

Hi there, my name is Skippy! I'm a 2 year old tweenie doxie, black and tan with really gorgeous fur! Just look at my wavy furry ears! Aren't I a looker?? Foster mom says I will be neutered on February 21 and then I can go to my forever home! 


I'm a very sweet boy and I like everyone -- children, men and women. This gives me more cuddling options! I love to cuddle up with you and will even sleep on the sofa if you give me the chance. Cuddling is so great, don't you think so? 

At night, I love the chance to get under the blankets and sleep with you,  if given the chance. After all, I'm a doxie and that's what we love! You can leave me alone in the house too, I have great manners and I'm a very good house guest, I'd just like to find a forever house of my own. I'm so polite that I even make sure to do my business outside. 


When it comes to my canine friends, the bigger dogs make me a bit nervous to be around in the beginning, but after a few days I'll come around and can learn to live with them. I don't have any fears of smaller canine friends though, but I haven't met any cats so foster mom isn't sure if I'd like them or not. 


Don't I sound like a dream?! Foster Mom certainly thinks so and keeps telling me I will make someone a very sweet, cuddly companion. Will it be you?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Skippy, 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.
