Duchess's Story...
Duke, Duchess and Sassy were rescued from a breeder by another shelter and then brought to Friendship in the hopes of finding new homes. They are sweet but timid dogs that may have never been in a traditional home. They are not nippy. Duchess is a one year old purebred Miniature Long Haired Dachshund. All will need lots of patience, training and love. They are finally experiencing attention and human contact at Friendship and are realizing life could be much better. Once in a loving home they will thrive. It's probably best if children in the family are a little older because of the timidness of the dogs.

If you have kids and/or another dog in your family and are interested in adopting a Friendship dog please bring them with you for a meet and greet. No appointment is necessary. Stop by anytime during regular business hours

All dogs receive one or more vaccinations, a basic veterinary examination, are wormed, heartworm tested and spayed or neutered. Dogs 3 months and older are micro-chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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