Blackie's Story...

Hello there! My name is Blackie and I’m an 8 year old mini girl! I came into rescue with my sisters, Daisy and Brownie. I weigh 10 pounds and foster mom says my weight is about right – gold star for me! I am very sweet but I’m pretty shy so I usually back away from strangers until I get used to them – it just takes me a little bit longer to learn that people can be trusted.

I sleep in my crate when foster mom is out and will also sleep in my crate at night…but naturally I would MUCH rather be snuggled up in the big bed next to you! I walk fairly well on a leash and love to explore at the dog park – who doesn’t? Foster mom says I'm making progress on my house training but it is hard to remember to go outside when you have always been able to go anywhere! I love car rides (hey – we usually end up at the dog park so I’ve got it alllll figured out!), and I do well with both dogs and cats – in fact because I love company so much, I’d pretty please love a home with another canine. Foster ma even thinks I’d do well with small children providing that they’re respectful of me and my size. I’m also not much of a barker, so if you call your condo/apartment home, that works for me too!

Do I sound like the doxie of your dreams? I’m just a lovely little gal looking for love. Will it be with you?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Blackie, 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.
