Van H ADOPTED LA's Story...

Meet Van Halen!

Van Halen is a 1.5 year old male black and tan Dachshund. He weighs 10 pounds. 10/17/08 Van Halen visited the vet clinic and received his fecal and heartworm test both were negative. 10/21/08 Van Halen visted the vet clinic and received his neuter, shots with rabies and dental check up. Van Halen started Interceptor for heartworm prevention and is having frontline placed on him for flea control.

Van Halen was rescued 10/17/08 from the Humane Society of Northeast Texas in Longview, Texas. He was rescued with a apricot male poodle named Barry Manalow. Van Halen was picked up as a stay and held for 5 days. JTR was listed in an email asking for assistance in helping any of the animals.

Van Halen is a very playful guy. He loves to run after squeaky toys and bring them back to you. Van Halen enjoys sitting in your arms and loves making new friends to both humans and other dogs. He loves to ride in the van and see everything. Van Halen is leash and potty trained. He would be a perfect addition to anyone who enjoys the weenie dog breed.

Special thank you to HSNT staff and especially Darcell C. with Got Paws? Kilgore, Texas.

Never adopted before?

Everyone wishing to adopt an animal from JTR must complete an adoption application. This application asks for general information about the adopter, adopter’s family, other current and prior pets and previous veterinary care. If you have never had a family pet before, follow up veterinary calls will be made during the year to insure the animal is being well cared for. Home visits are required unless the distance is too far for JTR or JTR’s contacts. Pictures of the home and common ground are required. Once the application is approved the adopter may meet and or adopt any of JTR's animals. A signed adoption contract is required. Adopters with approved applications are top priority to JTR.

For any questions or concerns not answered in the bio’s or to receive a adoption application, please email or call Jeff at 903-490-2959.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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