Shane's Info...

I am purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Shane's Story...
Shane joined the DREAM Team back in August of this year. He is a 3-4 year old red smooth male dachshund who was rescued from Barrow County Animal Control. He was picked up after being hit by a car. Shane recovered from a fractured pelvis in a foster home for 3 months as his condition did not require surgery. To see him now you would never know he experienced any trauma whatsoever.
Shane embraces life head-on with enthusiasm and joy. His tail only stops wagging when he's snoozing! He is now chowing down to gain a bit more weight in order to get clearance from the vet to have his neuter surgery. Shane loves playing with other dogs and enjoys spending time outside. A home without cats is best for Shane because of his playful and active nature, however, he would love to have another dog to play with. He is a sweet, affectionate, and gentle little guy that does not know a stranger. Shane is high-energy and would love an active family to play with, but at nighttime he is happiest burrowing under the covers and snuggling up. He also enjoys going on field trips to the pet store and hanging out on restaurant patios. Shane is a true social butterfly!
Although Shane is not available for adoption until he has been neutered in the next few weeks, please fill out an application on him if you feel he would be the perfect fit for your family.

If you are interested in adopting Shane, you can fill out an application right on our website! Go to dreamhappytails.org/adoptform.shtml . Shane 's adoption fee is $400. All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds. Shane will go to his/her new home microchipped, altered, heartworm tested, and up to date on vaccinations. Most dogs' veterinary expenses are greater than our adoption fees.

DREAM is an all-volunteer rescue group, and we focus on the Atlanta, North Georgia and Savannah area. Because we are all volunteers, we can consider applications only within an hour of these areas. DREAM does not recommend purebred dachshunds for families with children under 5, or families planning to have children during the dog's lifetime. Dachshunds are often not patient with little kids, and kids can accidentally hurt a doxie's back.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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