Barney Bigbend's Story...
This handsome fellow is Barney Bigbend. Barney and his buddy Carlos Carlsbad became DREAM Dachsies recently when a caring passer-by noticed a young man standing in the parking lot of a gas station with the two pups sweltering inside two carrier crates. He was basically shouting out to anyone within ear shot that he had free dogs he needed to get rid of, or he'd be facing eviction.

Our Good Samaritan started chatting with the young man and could see the poor dogs were covered in fleas. She offered to take them off his hands, as she feared where they might end up. He wouldn't give her the (nasty) crates, so she ended up paying him $40 for them. She kept the boys over night and reached out to DREAM the next day. Delighted that we could help, she transported Barney and Carlos to our vet and made a nice donation toward their vetting expenses. Both boys are very friendly and their foster dad is getting to know more about their habits and traits. Each of them would make a great addition to loving forever families!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Barney Bigbend, a Houston Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund for sale in Houston, or seeking a Dachshund dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston 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 Houston 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 Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
