Gertie's Info...

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

Gertie's Story...
Gertie is a sweet 3 year old red standard girl. She is spayed, up-to-date on her vaccinations and ready to go!
Gertie came to CDR from a puppy mill but the scars of her previous life are barely visible! She is still shy with strangers and strange situations but very curious and willing to check things out. She is still learning about walking on a leash but loves the dog park and the other dogs! She loves her people and cuddling on the couch with us and the other dogs. No fear of men that we have seen, just a bit wary of strangers. she will get over this, I think, with more socializing.

She is a very sweet girl, and sleeps the night in her crate with the door locked, since she can get out of almost anything. Lately she no longer tries to get out at night, so I think she was just afraid of being alone, apart from us. She loves her crate and takes prize possessions there, like toys from her foster brother's toy box and big biscuits that will take awhile to eat! She eats well, now all at one go, after finding out it would be gone if she didn't.
Gertie does not like to be left alone, so a bit of separation anxiety will have to be worked on. Gertie will need continued work on her housetraining as this is somewhat of a new concept to her.
All in all I think she will be a wonderful companion to someone, hopefully with another dog for a friend as she is used to doggy companionship.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gertie, 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.
