Find a pet to adopt
Hello, *nnn…nnn….nnn*, I'm Carl and I'm looking for a Mommy or Daddy. I'm a neutered Dachshund/ Chihuahua mix and I'm just a little guy, I'm already 5 months old and I'm only 11lbs. The world is so big and it's a little overwhelming here at times, but I do my best to keep up with the big pups. I'm so glad that I am not lost anymore. It was scary out on my own…I was cold & hungry. The nice person that found me was so kind, but they were afraid that their big doggies would not play fair with me cause I'm so little. I love people! They are so nice to me here and they say that one day soon I will go home and have my very own family. I'm very excited about this because there is nothing better than snoozing on a lap after playing time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option
Carl, a Murphysboro Chihuahua/Dachshund puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Dachshund for sale in Murphysboro, or seeking a Chihuahua/Dachshund puppy from a breeder in Murphysboro.
Rescues and shelter volunteers in Murphysboro 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.
On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Murphysboro 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
You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home.
In fact, there are even Chihuahua/Dachshund breeders who
help with Chihuahua/Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten
adopted in Murphysboro paves the way for another one to be saved.
