Eli's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Eli's Story...
Hello there, I am Eli!
I am a 23 pound Dachshund mix. We are not sure what I am mixed with, the breeder said I was a standard Dachshund but I was useless. Why? Because I did not like the mini Dachshunds he tried to breed me to. So he put me in a tiny cage and sold me at the Flea Market.

I have been in foster care for almost 2 years to teach me how to be a dog. Yes, that is right. I had to be taught to walk on grass. Taught how to drink water out of a bowl and stop hiding in the corner.
Now I am a confident young man that wants to move to a home of his own. I am still shy and need a home with experience. I am not the kind of dog a first time dog owner should adopt. I like toys and I love to lay in the back of the couch and watch TV! One of my new favorite things is to walk on a leash in the park. It took some time but I love going for walks now.
Most dogs and I get along. I am good with both large and small dogs. I can be a little bossy with some dogs. But I am not aggressive or bite them.
My perfect home would be a mature home without small children. A home with a dog my size that likes to chill and sniff with me in the yard. I can be in a small home or a large farm. As long as you love me and care for me I am yours!
Loyalty to me is giving you kisses and letting you cry on my soft shoulders during a movie. If you want a partner that will lovingly stay by your side I am your man.
A lot of hard work has gone into my recovery so my new parents need to have a serious dedication to my continued care and love. I am a puppy mill survivor and I now deserve the best life has to offer.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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