Jay's Story...
My name is Jay and I am a 4-5 year old male Dachshund. I love squeaky toys and playing with my foster sister and brother. And I absolutely LOVE going on walks on the leash! I am doing a great job with going potty outside and I have already learned to sit for a treat and for my breakfast and dinner bowl. I am very quiet at night and can sleep all night with no accidents. I love to cuddle with anyone who will take the time to sit down with me -- in fact I insist on it!. Are you looking for a handsome boy with very perky ears? Then look no further and start filling out my application so we can meet each other. I am a little nervous about people that I don't know well, especially men, so tend to bark until I get to know them and trust them a little more. In my foster home, that just took a couple of days (although I still sometimes bark at Foster Dad if he startles me.) If you show me guidance I will not leave your side (I was a stray after all so I have not had much contact with humans until Dream came along).

If you are interested in adopting Jay, you can fill out an application right on our website! Go to dreamhappytails.org/adoptform.shtml. Jay 's adoption fee is $400. All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds. Jay will go to his/her new home microchipped, altered, heartworm tested, and up to date on vaccinations. Most dogs' veterinary expenses are greater than our adoption fees.

DREAM is an all-volunteer rescue group, and we focus on the Atlanta, North Georgia and Savannah area. Because we are all volunteers, we can consider applications only within an hour of these areas. DREAM does not recommend purebred dachshunds for families with children under 5, or families planning to have children during the dog's lifetime. Dachshunds are often not patient with little kids, and kids can accidentally hurt a doxie's back.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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