Atom's Story...
An atom can be defined as a tiny particle but it is also considered a source of vast potential energy. Potential energy which our Atom uses for typical little boy capers. He is the resident pee pad destroyer and quite the mischief maker, but this little 12 pound, 6.5 month old Chiweenie also takes after his dad and is a complete sweetheart. Atom's parents, Mama and Gustavo, lost their home when their human went into hospice and members of the family weren't willing to take them in. Both were on their way to a high kill shelter until one of our amazing foster families reached out to us and together we were able to rescue them. Only a couple weeks later, Atom and his siblings were born. Four of Atom's siblings - Nova, Darwin, Newton, and Vega - have been adopted, but he and his brother, Einstein, and their fantastic ears, are still looking for their forever homes. They have not only been incredibly loved ever since, but they have been extremely well socialized and introduced to kiddos, other dogs, cats and lots of visitors. Atom is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and ready for his forever home. If you are interested in adopting our little bit, please fill out an application at omdrescue.org

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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