Zelda's Story...
Posted 01/15/16. Beautiful black and tan Zelda is a 17 lb. tweenie Doxie girl. She is 1 year old and still much like a puppy - she loves to chew up paper towels and tends to get into trouble when unsupervised. Much of this behavior will certainly go away once Zelda matures. Her foster mom has been working on potty training her and Zelda is making great progress and getting the idea. She most likely will still have to be worked with on that. Zelda also was not well socialized when she was a baby so she is leery of strangers and hides initially. But once you offer her a treat and she learns that there is no threat, she is your friend, very loving and affectionate. Zelda gets along great with other dogs and in fact, we would like a home for her where there is another dog her size that she could become friends with. Zelda Loves going for walks as much as she likes snuggling with her human. For Zelda we would like a home with active people who will take her for walks, give her a lot of individual attention and understand her needs of an initially rather timid pup who has not been exposed to a lot of activities and needs lots of socialization. We also are looking for a home with a securely fenced in yard. Zelda is current on vaccinations including Rabies, she is spayed, she tested negative for heartworm, she is on heartworm/flea prevention and she is micro chipped. If you are interested in adopting this beautiful girl, please fill out an adoption application on our web site (an application has to be filled out prior to setting up a meeting). Zelda's adoption fee is $300. No children under 12 please.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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