Stretch's Story...
Hiya, Stretch is my name and cuddles are my game! I bet you haven't seen a wiener quite like me before. Don't worry, you aren't the first one. I'm what they call a shorthair, wirehair dachshund. I weigh 12 lbs. The vets guesses I am around 2 years old - maybe 3 years old. That sounds good to me! I certainly feel young.
 
I love people, especially people who love to play. I like other dogs but I'm not sure about cats. I've seen them on TV but never in real life. I feel the same way about the little humans - I think you call them kids. I think the safest thing is for me to be in home with another dog (as long as they love to play as much as me) and older children. I should also go to a house instead of an apartment or condo. What can I say - I like to bark!
 
My foster home is working on my housetraining. It is coming along if I do say so myself. I'm not foolproof but I am sure trying to learn. Walking on a leash doesn't seem so hard either. I had a family before but I don't think I tried these things with them. One thing is for certain though, if there was an award for best snuggler, I would win!
 
There is only one catch. I need an owner who knows how to be the leader of the pack. I just can't help it, if my life is lacking leadership, I try to take over. I don't want though so please, for me, don't let it happen.
 
If you are looking for a happy-go-lucky snugglebug, I am your man! Can't wait to meet you,
 
Love Stretch

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Stretch, 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.
