Whitney's Story...
Whitney is approx 1 year old and 10lbs. She looks like a wire haired dachshund/chihuahua mix/ She is just precious. She is a really sweet and quiet little girl, but does have some separation anxiety. She likes to be wherever you are or will cry, she likes to sleep right next to you at night on the bed. We find that these dogs do better with a buddy and once they know they are safe and secure, they do much better being alone. But for now she probably needs someone who is going to be home quite a lot that can work with her. She seems to be pretty well leash and house trained and has a really nice disposition. She tested positive for heart arms and has been treated with the required series of injections, and she has also been started on a monthly heart worm preventive.

The total adoption donation of $475 and includes the required interstate health certificate and transport , spay/neuter, shots including rabies, bordatella, parvo, lepto, distemper and canine influenza, and micro chip with a lifetime pre paid registration. The total amount is payable to Shaggy Dog Rescue which is a 501c3. .

Just as a note, if you are in Massachusetts and are adopting directly from Texas rather than from a local foster, there are new quarantine laws in effect. All rescues must be quarantined 48 hours at a state run facility, and in addition, a second interstate health certificate is required to be issued by a Massachusetts vet. This new law adds an additional cost of $125.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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