Ryder Redshirt's Story...
This little man is Ryder Redshirt. He is 8 - 10 months old, red, smooth and as mini as they come at just 10 lbs. He's an adorable "dachs-huahua," that is, a dachshund/chihuahua mix but looks mostly dachshund until his ears perk up and they stand straight up from the sides of his head! Ryder was an owner surrender to a shelter west of Houston. The local rescues were all full so when they reached out to DREAM, of course we said yes. He is a tad skittish but each day he settles down more and is understanding that he doesn’t need to be afraid of things like sounds or people coming in the room. Ryder loves other dogs and is very playful. He doesn’t mark and uses the doggie door. He really likes my husband, and will take any and all opportunities to crawl into his lap, especially on the couch! His favorite spot is draped around your neck on the back of the couch pillow. Ryder is a sweetheart, and very friendly. He doesn't act aggressively over toys, food or anything. A busy home with alot of young children would not be a choice environment for Ryder because the commotion would probably frighten him. He definitely needs a yard to run and play in and a dog buddy to hang with too.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ryder Redshirt, a Houston Dachshund puppy 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 puppy 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.
