Thrift's Story...
Hi, they call me Thrift. I'm ~8-9 yrs old & weigh about 15 lbs. I have all the wonderful dachshund personality you could ever wish for. I love to be with my humans as much as possible! I love to be petted, rubbed and generally loved on. I AM the softest dachshund you’ve ever petted. I don’t bark when strangers arrive……..I cry when they leave! (Please come back & pet me some more.) My foster mom hasn’t had me around cats or young children, but if they let me have my way, I guess I’m ok with them too. I LOVE to go on long walks….foster mom is finding out that I am on my best behavior at home when I get walked regularly. If you watch my video, you'll see how excited I get every afternoon when it's walk time. ;D

If you are interested in adopting Thrift, you can fill out an application right on our website! Go to dreamhappytails.org/adoptform.shtml. Thrift 's adoption fee is $325. All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds. Thrift will go to his/her new home microchipped, neutered, 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

Thrift, 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.
