And now a few words from me:

Hi! My name is Charlie and my foster mom says I am a VERY cute dachshund. Sometimes I think she gets confused because she also calls me a chicken and a scaredy-cat, whatever those are. I am very shy around strangers and it takes me awhile to trust you, but once I do, watch out! I love to cuddle and give kisses, but I have a lot of energy so I also need to play and go for long walks. I am still working on my leash manners, but I am getting better every day.

My stubbornness comes out when I don’t want to go for a walk or when I am scared on the walk, I’ll just lie down and refuse to move. I am very young so I need humans who have the time to work with me and teach me how to be a great doggy citizen. They will also need to help me be more consistent with my commands. I know what most of them mean, like off and sit, but I can be a little stubborn.

I am completely crate trained and that is where I sleep and stay when you are away. Though I have to say I’d much rather sleep in the big bed with my humans. I would also love the run of the house, but my previous owner said I use to get into everything. Though, my foster family has not seen my curiosity get me into trouble. I am also housetrained and pee-pad trained, but hey I’m a dachshund so accidents happen. I have a lot of love and smiles to give and I cannot wait to have a family of my very own!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Charlie, 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.
