Buddy's Story...
My name is Buddy and I'm a dachshund mix. I weigh around 17 pounds but could stand to lose a few. I am around 6 years old and love, love, love my ball. I am never without my ball and will always bring it to you to play fetch. My mom says I am a very sweet dog. I can be afraid of men though and can bark and growl at them. Once I get to know them, I'm fine. I can get a little worked up when someone knocks on the door, especially strangers. I think if someone could work with me on those fears, I could get over them. I love belly rubs and hugs and hope someone will adopt me who is kind and patient. I am good with other dogs but can't be around a dog that is aggressive as I am not real assertive if confronted by that kind of dog. I would prefer being the only dog if possible. I need someone who can spend lots of time with me. I do have a heart murmur that can be easily managed by medication and regular vet care. I am housebroken, neutered, up to date on shots. My adoption fee is $200. Apply to adopt me here:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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