Barnacle (POM-CR)'s Story...
Are you looking for a cuddly companion? This little guy is smaller than his pictures make him appear! (picture sleeping on my lap is in the drivers seat the morning he was rescued) Barnacle was found running down a lonely country road. I thought that he was a puppy because of his small size. He weighs 17.5 lbs. I pulled the car to a stop and he ran right over whining like he was upset so I put him into my car. He instantly started kisses and snuggles and he fell asleep on my lap within 10 minutes on our way to the vet. I was surprised to learn that he was about a year old already! We decided to name him Barnacle because he loves to stay closeby. He has a long curly tail and a slender body like a wippet but also has some dachsund characteristics with longer legs. He loves other dogs, is fine with cats and is great with kids. Barnacle can't wait for a forever home of his own. He's vetted and microchipped and wants to be with you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Barnacle (POM-CR), a Allentown Dachshund/Whippet dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund/Whippet for sale in Allentown, or seeking a Dachshund/Whippet dog from a breeder in Allentown.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Allentown 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 Allentown 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/Whippet breeders who help with Dachshund/Whippet rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Allentown paves the way for another one to be saved.
