Shorty's Story...
Happy Shorty is a 14.3 pound, black & tan longhair, 14 year old boy looking for a happy home to call his very own.

Shorty is a sweet boy and gets along well with the cats and dogs he shares his foster home with in Florida. Crate trained, Shorty will bark when you first leave the house and bark with excitement when you come home.

Shorty would like a home where he could have a furry brother or sister and a person that was home often. Shorty has some very small cataracts on his eyes but they do not slow him down for one moment.

A cuddly boy, Shorty loves to lay beside his foster mom in the big bed and couch but is also happy in his doggy bed. Shorty knows how to use a ramp and is leash trained. He loves to roll in the grass and likes to play with toys.

Shorty is house trained but does need to be encouraged to go outside to potty on a regular basis. Like all dachshunds he will need to be confident in his environment to have good potty habits. All rescue dogs go thru a period of adjustment so understanding and patience is important.

This handsome boy is just waiting for his happy home. Apply to adopt Shorty today !

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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