SLIM's Story...
Slim is an adorable and very playful, 18-week-old 'Chiweenie' puppy... a Dachshund and Chihuahua mix. He's a little guy, only weighing 7.5-lbs. (on 5/31/16) and small in stature with a long body and build of a dachshund. His ears and face are like that of a Chihuahua. His coat is short and glossy, with some brown on his legs.

Slim is an affectionate and playful little pup who loves to play 'fetch'. When introduced to a new environment he a little shy, but warm up quickly.

Slim is at first cautious around larger dogs, and very people-oriented. He is a strong and athletic pup, and a fast, agile runner and jumper for being such a little guy. Slim is crate trained, and is working on his house training, walking on a leash and clicker training.

Slim has been neutered and microchipped, had his Rabies vaccine and 3 rounds of DHP/Parvo vaccine, has been dewormed, and started on Heartworm prevention.

Slim's adoption fee is $200.00.

Forever Home Canine Rescue offers a 3-week trial period with all our adoptions, just to be sure that the pet is a good match for the adoptive family. The adoption fee is refunded if the adoption does not work out within the trial period. We want to be sure that each of our pets will have the perfect 'forever' home!

Forever Home Canine Rescue adopts out-of-state, but we never 'ship' or 'transport' our pets. An approved adopter must come to North Carolina to meet their new canine companion and then take him/her back home with them.

If you are interested in Slim and think he may be your ideal canine companion, please visit our website at for information on our adoption process and to download an application, or you may e-mail us at for additional information, or to request an application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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