And now a few words from me:

I’m a pretty 5-year-old redhead named Jenny, with an easy-going, curious disposition. I’m an outdoorsy girl, and love going for walks. Once I'm back inside, I’m happy curled up beside my person, sleeping in my crate and watching the world go by. I’m trying so hard to be the perfect girl, but I become tense and nervous if there is movement around my food. I’m working on this and I’m told that I’m improving, but it would be best if there were no children under the age of 10 in my new family. And speaking of my new family, I’m hoping to have one really soon. If you like the outdoors, and are looking for a sweet companion, I just might be your new best friend!


And now a few words from my foster family:

Jenny is a beautiful redhead with a dark stripe down her back. She’s quite friendly and likes to snuggle beside you. With each passing day in her foster home, she has become more outgoing and she just loves walking outside, even in the cold and snow! Summer should see her in her glory. Jenny hasn’t interacted with any toys or the other dogs in her foster home yet. She was respectful of a friend’s confident cat and has become more sure of herself around the dogs. She has shown some resource guarding with her food, although it has improved significantly in the two weeks she has been with us, and if handled with calm assurance, it should disappear entirely. Jenny loves to get into the car but cries once the vehicle is moving. Helping her to gain confidence during short trips should go a long way to helping her overcome this fear. This little ray of sunshine is trying so hard to adjust to her new world, and will be nice companion in her new family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jenny, 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.
