Melvin's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Melvin's Story...
Melvin is seriously my FAVORITE foster that I have had in awhile. He is one of those dogs that makes me half consider adopting out one of my personal dogs & keeping him instead! Totally kidding, I would never... BUT I don't know how else to describe how amazing he is!! I got Melvin & his brothers as owner surrenders. I was told he was part of an accidental litter. Mom was a Jack Russel Mix, no clue on dad (we spayed mom for the owner so no more accidents!). Melvin looks different than his siblings. He looks like a dachshund/beagle mix (& howls like one too!). Melvin was my favorite out of the litter... I mean besides his AWESOME personality, how many dogs do you know with a perfect HEART imprinted on the side! :D

Melvin sleeps in bed with me every night (don't tell the trainers you know!). He cuddles into my neck & it is just heart melting!! What can I say, I love a cuddly dog :) However, there are some nights he does have to sleep in his crate & minus a little crying for a few mins he is quiet & sleeps through the night.

Melvin is great with kids, other dogs & cats! He is pretty mellow for a puppy but can still have his crazy moments! LOVES to play & LOVES to be cuddled.

We ALMOST have the house training down. When I can't watch him or when I have to leave he goes in his crate. Never has accidents in there. When I take him out we go outside right away & he does his business. He does great as long as I take him out every few hours. If I let him roam he will have accidents. So as far as house training goes I'd say get him on a schedule & use crate training & he gets it.

Melvin was born Jan 21st. He is currently 8 lbs. I would expect him to get around 30 lbs when grown. Maybe he will stay smaller it is really hard to tell right now.

Melvin's adoption fee should be a million dollars because he's really THAT special :) But his adoption fee is only 300. This covers all medical including neuter, vaccines & microchip. Let us know if interested!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Melvin, a Phoenix Beagle/Dachshund puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Beagle/Dachshund for sale in Phoenix, or seeking a Beagle/Dachshund puppy from a breeder in Phoenix.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Phoenix 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 Phoenix 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 Beagle/Dachshund breeders who help with Beagle/Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Phoenix paves the way for another one to be saved.
