A - ROCKIE's Info...

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

A - ROCKIE's Story...
Hi! My name is Rockie! What’s yours? I’m a good boy. Those funny-looking creatures named humans say that I am a Doxie/Pomeranian mix and I am 8 months old and I weigh 12 pounds. I am up to date on all of my shots and I’ve been neutered! YIKES!

Before you fall in love with my handsome face, you should know that I am still in Houston, TX. I would be transported to you when you decide to adopt me. Who wouldn’t want a great doggie like me?


May I tell you all about ME? Those humans also tell me that I am “sweet as can be” and I’m friendly, once I know you are a good doggie person and want to love on me. Once I’m in your arms, I am a real sweetie. I know all these good things are true because they love on me and smile at me a lot and give me pats and cuddles. I love my peeps and get along with other dogs too! I’m living with 3 other foster dogs.


I am just a baby so I’ve got lots to learn. I DO know about doggie doors and I go outside to do my personal business. I walk pretty well on a leash and I LOVE being with people. I’m not a loner. My peeps are very important to me! The only thing I like to do alone is eat. If you come back into the area where I am eating, I jump out of the doggie door. When you leave the room, I come back to my dinner! Hey, don’t we all have our idiosyncrasies? I’m trying to decide which I love more – car rides or belly rubs! Well, hey! Can you love me enough to give me both? I will love you even more in return.

For adoption information on me, please email mpringle001@comcast.net. My adoption fee is $650 which includes my vetting, neutering, microchip, a Health Certificate, a travel crate and the airline fee on United Airlines from Houston, TX to areas in the Northeast U. S., Northcentral U. S., the Northwest U. S. and anywhere in Canada that United flies to! What a deal, huh? Transportation will be arranged by the rescue group. (This is a courtesy posting.)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

A - ROCKIE, a Burlington Dachshund/Pomeranian puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund/Pomeranian for sale in Burlington, or seeking a Dachshund/Pomeranian puppy from a breeder in Burlington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Burlington 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 Burlington 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/Pomeranian breeders who help with Dachshund/Pomeranian rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Burlington paves the way for another one to be saved.
