Rusty's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Rusty's Story...
Rusty is a 7 year old, 16lb red boy and he is sweet as the day is long. He is a true southern gentleman.

HIs favorite past time is watching the world from the window, basking in the sunshine and snuggling with his people. He gets along with other dogs and kids but he likes to chase kitties.

He doesn't mind being in a crate and behaves perfectly when he waits for you to come back from your errands. This little guy is a ball of fun by day and a sweet cuddly lap dog by night.

He would enjoy a family who will take him for walks to sniff around the neighborhood or park. He loves to ride in the car and go on adventures to the pet store or to your favorite coffee shop for a yummy puppacino.

This sweet guy is looking for a forever family to call his own. A family he can spend the rest of his life with being the best friend he is meant to be.

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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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