Laverne's Info...

I am already spayed, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and not good with dogs.

Laverne's Story...
Hi, my name is Laverne, and I’m a 5 yr. old, black and tan long-haired wiener.  My dapple pattern makes me extra cute.  I weigh about 10 lb.
Ok, so I have to be honest with you. No good relationship starts with a lie. I can be a little stand-offish, but only at first! Once I get to know my “person”, I love them to pieces.  I’m very afraid of pretty much everything, and it takes me a few days to trust someone new.  But once I realize that you can be trusted, and that you won’t hurt me,  watch out –I am a love machine!
Ok, a little more honestly. I am an attention hog. So I’m best in a one-dog house.  And I am terribly afraid of men, although, with time, I can learn to love them too.   No kids for me, they move too quickly.
But some of my quirks are understandable. My life started off in a puppy mill so I haven’t learned all the things I should know, like being house-trained, but I’m getting better at using the pee pad.  And how to walk properly...but I’m so small,I don’t like to walk far.   This might change once I learn to be more trusting.
I’m really a very good couch potato.   I can jump up onto your lap, but I can’t jump off. Well, ok, I could jump off if I really wanted to. But why would I want to that?! I just really need a lap to sit on and a person to love.
Is there a retired couple, or a lady out there who will love to have me as badly as I want to be with them?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Laverne, 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.
