Trinity's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Trinity's Story...
available for adoption.
Trinity is a very sweet and loving 2 year old 20 lb Dachshund mix. Her face and colour resemble a Dachshund, but her body and legs resemble either a Miniature Pinscher or Whippet.

She loves to cuddle on the couch and snuggle where ever you are.

She is loving and gentle with young children, and playful with other dogs.

She walks well in suburban/park like settings, but is anxious and skittish in busy city settings.

She isn't a "barker", but has been known to bark from time to time while playing with another dog, or in excitement when her person comes home.

She is completely house broken, and doesn't require a kennel, although appreciates having a quiet place to sleep with her bed with the door left open.

She loves to play, and enjoys chewing on chew toys, as she is still quite young.

She would do best in a home where she isn't left alone for long periods of time. Ideal would be a home with a stay at home mom, a retiree or someone that works from home.

She has been spayed, but had a litter of puppies earlier in her life. Not much is known about her past, but she was rescued from a shelter in the U.S.A.

Much about Trinity's past is unclear. I do believe she was kept in a cage most of her life due to various experiences we've had with her, which is why we are looking for her new home to be with someone that is around to give her the love, patience and attention she's never had.

She is a sweet and gentle dog, especially with children 5 and up. I have not observed her with younger children.

She gets along great with our 3 year old male shitzu mix and is friendly to other dogs when we pass by them going for a walk. She showed fear of bigger dogs when when we went to a dog park and actually whimpered and ran away from them. She is submissive because of her past, so I would like to see her go to a home where she can come out of her shell and feel trust again.

She is a playful pooch, and loves to play fetch. She is a chewer, so not leaving anything soft on the floor is a must.
She is good in cars.
She has been observed not go to the bathroom while on the leash. So a fenced backyard is a must. She has never had an accident in the house.

She can display some anxious behaviour at times...pacing around and whimpering, but I've discovered it's usually because she is asking for a bathroom break, needs water/food, or if we are in a new environment.

She is petrified walking down busy city streets. So a home in a suburban or rural area is also a must. She walks perfectly in a suburban and park-like setting

Because of Trinity's needs and behaviour, she would do best in the following type of home:
- someone who is at home (retiree, work from home, homemaker)
- lives in a suburban area NOT a busy city
- has a fenced backyard
- has experience with animals
- no children under the age of 5
- doesn't have other aggressive animals
- has proper finances to pay for food, vet bills etc.
- is physically able to walk her
- adopting for themselves and not for a family member or friend

If you think you can provide Trinity with this type of home, please contact me and we can discuss next steps.

If you are looking for a sweet companion, then Trinity just might be the friend for you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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