Facts about Pia Pidove

  • Breed: Dachshund
  • Color: White - With Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 848
UPDATE from Pia's Foster Mom:

Pia is doing so well. Her background clearly involved a kind household where she was handled gently and often, despite the apparent neglect of her teeth. Perhaps an elderly owner passed and a family member took her over but wasn't able to care for her. She is happy to be handled, not at all needy and enjoys sitting in an open crate on her own. She doesn't whine and seems to enjoy exploring the backyard on her own (even tho I am secretly just a couple of yards away shadowing her.) She's confident and gets along with the other dogs. Despite her blindness, she is very adoptable and will make a sweet and loving companion for the right forever family!

*****************************

This lovely lady is Miss Pia Pidove. Pia was found by a Good Samaritan in a office complex parking lot. Our Samaritan recognized immediatly that Pia was frightened and vision impaired. Her first concern was getting little Pia off the street and into a safe place, then she reached out to DREAM for help. She knew becoming a DREAM Dachsie would be Pia's best hope for a healthy and satisfying life. Once we got Pia into our veterinary clinic, it was determined that she's only 6 - 7 years old. Sadly, her teeth are in horrible shape which will require some costly dental work; but DREAM is committed to providing this sweet girl the care she needs and deserves. Pia is (light) HW positive, but we know she'll easily beat that with time and great care . Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done about her vision impairment, the result of her double dapple breeding, but you can be sure, it doesn't impede her ability to love or be loved at all. Pia is settling in to her foster home where her foster parents will be learning more about her precious personality.

Our Adoption Process...

Our Adoption Criteria

~ You must be at least 21 years old.
~ We prefer that you live in the greater Houston area, but we will consider your application under certain circumstances. If you live more than 2 hours from Houston, you will need to provide photos of your home and yard (or be able to Skype with us), and you must be willing to travel to Houston to meet the dogs.
~ If you live in a house, you must have a fenced yard.
~ All companion animals must be spayed/neutered, and current on vaccinations and heartworm preventative.
~ You must have the time and money necessary to provide medical treatment, training and proper care.
~ With few exceptions, you must not have children younger than three (3) years old living in your home.

Our Adoption Process

1. You submit an Adoption Application.
2. Our Application Committee will review your Application, and call your vet and your landlord (if applicable).
3. A volunteer will interview you on the phone.
4. A Home Visit will be scheduled to see where your new Dachshund will sleep, eat and play.
5. We all work together to find the right Dachshund for your family. Usually, the dog's Foster Person will bring the dog you're interested to your home for a "Meet and Greet".
6. When you're ready to adopt, you will sign an Adoption Contract and pay the Adoption Fee.

Please Note

~ If your Application is not approved, you will not be able to adopt from us.
~ A submitted application does not guarantee adoption of a Dachshund, nor does it guarantee that the dog you want is available.
~ Adoptive families must agree to periodic follow-up phone calls and visits from us during the first year following the adoption.
~ We are committed to our dogs and REQUIRE that they be returned to us if they cannot remain in your home.
~ Our Adoption Fees are $350 for Puppies, $250 for Young/Adults, and $150 for Seniors.
~ Submission of your application confirms that you have read and understand our Adoption Criteria and Adoption Process.
