Barney's Story...
For being a homeless dog, Barney was a lucky one. He shared his life on the streets with his homeless human dad. He was well behaved and well loved. So well loved that his dad decided to hard him over to rescue so that Barney could have a safe home with a family. We know it was a tough decision but a decision that we respect and feel honored that he has entrusted us to find the perfect home for Barney.

Barney is extremely friendly and happy all of the time. He is interested in meeting everyone that crosses his path – men, women, kids, other dogs large & small, cats, he doesn’t care. His favorite toy is a bouquet of flowers that comes apart, and he’s always carrying a flowers wherever he goes, he takes it to bed with him and even outside to potty, and then carries it back . Barney is housetrained and will also use a crate but doesn’t really need one. He is not destructive when left alone and very well behaved. Barney walks perfectly on a leash and loves to take car rides. He is small enough (8 pounds) to travel on a plane if his adopter wishes to travel with him along. Barney is a fun-loving and perky little dog that charms his way into everyone’s heart. He will certainly make his future adopter very happy. Thanks for choosing to ADOPT your next pet.
Barney is fully vetted, neutered, UTD on vaccines, heartworm negative & microchipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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