Finn's Story...
*** please note that Finn has epilepsy but is not currently requiring treatment***
 
Hi: I'm Finn and I'm a 7-year old red short haired dachshund. My full name in Finnean but foster mom sometimes calls me Finnigan and I like that too. I came into rescue through no fault of our own with my sister, Haddie. I weigh 13 pounds and foster mom says my weight is about right. I am very sweet but I am shy when I first meet new people and will back away from your hand. However, I warm  up to you quickly. I love to cuddle. If foster mom is working on the computer, I ask her to pick me up and I sleep in her arms like a baby. I sleep in my crate when foster mom is out but I bark when she comes home. I will also sleep in my crate at night but I would much rather be in the big bed with you and cuddle right up beside you. When it is a bit cool, I like to go under the covers. When we had the cool days in early August, I was shivering so foster mom found a sweater for me to wear and I stopped shivering. Foster mom is really happy that I am 100% house trained. I walk fairly well on a leash and I love to explore at the dog park.

I know sit and come and have learned some of foster mom's special commands. I like to go for a car ride because it usually means we are going for a walk. I LOVE small respectful children and foster mom has had to come after me because I started to follow them. I will go up to a small child and give them kisses. I bark when people go by so an apartment is not a good place for me. Foster mom has 5 cats (yes, I said 5) and I tend to ignore them. I'm not quite sure what to do when some of the cats head butt me.

I like to play with my sister but will tell off a big dog if they are bothering me. 

I'm looking for a home to call my own with another canine friend. It would be great if it could be my sister but I know adopting 2 dogs is difficult. I would love it if you had young respectful children.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Finn, 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.
