Shorty's Story...
Shorty is too sweet to even describe. Her owner passed away and Shorty needed someone to take her in and help her find her forever home. Shorty was loved very, very much and it has led her to being very over weight at the present time. We have had her on a weight loss program since the day she arrived. She gets around very well for having the excess weight to carry around and she loves taking walks. We would want her kept on her diet when she goes into her new home. Losing the excess weight will add years to her life. She is 9-10 yrs old. Dachshunds are known for long life spans, commonly living 16 and more years. Once Shorty loses her additional pounds, she is a very good candidate to live that long! Other than needing to have her amount of food supervised, she is ready to find a new human to give all her love to. Shorty is a black and tan longhair. I recently clipped her coat to get rid if some tangles and to make her feel a little cooler.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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