I am good with kids.

Dovahkiin's Story...
Dovahkiin (Dova-keen) is an approximately 9 to 11month old bearded dragon. He's a little small for his age due to poor previous husbandry, but his name is mighty. We do not know at this time if Dovahkiin is indeed male or female and as such he/she will need to be a single beardie. His adoption fee is $50 and this does not include his tank or other equipment.

Dovahiin is very animated little beardie though and when you talk to him he cocks his head sideways at you as if he is listening very intently. He also really enjoys cuddling, being petted and riding around on your shoulders or chest.

His favorite thing though is breakfast & dinner time! He is a very good eater and loves a variety of fresh leafy greens and veggies as well as crickets, cockroaches, and phoenix worms. He can easily be fed by hand as well. Overall, he's a chill little guy that is quiet and easy to care for.

Because we don't know Dovahkiin's sex at this time he/she will need to be the only beardie in his/her tank for the time being and can not be adopted as a bond mate as we do not advocate breeding.

RCHS bearded dragons live in loving foster homes where they are socialized and fed an appropriate age based diet of crickets, phoenix worms, and dark leafy green vegetables. They are kept in appropriate sized aquariums for their length and age and provided with UVB and basking bulbs as well as appropriate cage accessories. Bearded dragons do require a vet trained in exotic animal medicine and have special housing and dietary needs. We encourage you to please research bearded dragons thoroughly before adopting.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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