Tristan can not go to a home with children - their quick movements frighten him too much and he will unintentionally snap out of fear. He needs a calm home that provides him guidance and boundaries without anger.
If you are interested in adopting Tristan, you can fill out an application right on our website! Go to dreamhappytails.org/adoptform.shtml . Tristan 's adoption fee is $400. All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds. Tristan will go to his/her new home microchipped, altered, heartworm tested, and up to date on vaccinations. Most dogs' veterinary expenses are greater than our adoption fees.
DREAM is an all-volunteer rescue group, and we focus on the Atlanta, North Georgia and Savannah area. Because we are all volunteers, we can consider applications only within an hour of these areas. DREAM does not recommend purebred dachshunds for families with children under 5, or families planning to have children during the dog's lifetime. Dachshunds are often not patient with little kids, and kids can accidentally hurt a doxie's back.
