Sebastien's Story...
Meet Sebastian! Sebastian is a male who is approximately 5 - 6 years old, 16.6 pounds, black, tan and white dapple doxie. Sebastian came into the rescue via a puppy mill in Quebec, but you'd never know it. This handsome fellow really enjoys the company of humans. He has encountered men, women, the young and the old and seems equally happy to snuggle with any of the aforementioned! We call Sebastian our shadow at a distance - he likes to follow the humans in his house around, but keep a good foot back just in case there are any sudden movements. He is happiest snuggled on the couch next to his foster parents or (spoiled boy!) sleeping in the cozy big bed. We are working on Sebastian being just as comfortable at our feet in a dog bed and in his crate. He's learning the command 'down' and is growing quite happy in his crate.
Since Sebastian has so much love to give he's not fond of being on his own. He suffers from a bit of separation anxiety which we find is controlled well by leaving him in his crate while we're out and occasionally roaming free in the house if we're just outside. Sebastian would do incredibly well in a home with other dogs or even a cat. He really enjoys the companionship he has found in his foster brother, Ben. We think the extra K9 might bring him a bit of comfort. Sebastian is learning to walk like a good man on his lead and other than a little bit of marking has the idea of going to the back door when he needs 'to go.' Sebastian is adjusting to being in the car and enjoys going to work with his foster mom. He does not bark at new people, door bells or any noises really. Everyone at the office says they would never know he's there other than a bit of click clacking when he stretches about. The only time we hear this polite man is if he'd like to come in from the backyard. Sebastian still isn't sure what to do with dog treats and does not really understand 'play.' He's been offered toys, but he simply doesn't know what to do with them. We hope he develops his sense of play as he grows accustom to life in a home.
This little man would do really well in any home that is looking for a lap dog and with a family who has the patience to help work with his separation anxiety. Sebastian would love a family who is willing to teach him the pleasures of being in a home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sebastien, 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.
