He gets along with other dogs and kids but kitties are a no. He wants to eat everyone else's food so he needs to fed separately! He loves to hunt and enjoys being outside and snuggling with his people is his favorite pastime.
He doesn't mind being in a crate but behaves perfectly when left outside of his crate while you are away. He has long outgrown the chewing puppy stage. He is house trained but can have an accident if he is not kept on a schedule. A true perfect gentleman.
He would enjoy a family who is somewhat active and likes to go for adventures, whether it is sniffing around the neighborhood or walks in the park.
This sweet guy needs a forever family who will give him a lap or two, a couch and bed to call his own.
If you are interested in adopting Rusty, you can fill out an application right on our website! Go to title="Online Application" href="http://dreamhappytails.org/adoptform.shtml" target="_blank"> dreamhappytails.org/adoptform.shtml . Rusty 's adoption fee is $380.00. All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds. Rusty will go to his new home microchipped, altered, heartworm tested, and up to date on vaccinations. Most dogs' veterinary expenses are greater than our adoption fees.
DREAM is an all-volunteer rescue group, and we focus on the Atlanta, North Georgia and Savannah area. Because we are all volunteers, we can consider applications only within an hour of these areas. DREAM does not recommend purebred dachshunds for families with children under 5, or families planning to have children during the dog's lifetime. Dachshunds are often not patient with little kids, and kids can accidentally hurt a doxie's back.
