Winston's Story...
Winston is a lover not a fighter. Unfortunately he has had quite a rough past, he lived outdoors most of his life from a terrible breeding situation. He lost all but two teeth during his dental but does just fine with them. Actually makes quite a cute Elvis face! He also has many scars and lost some of his hair but he's still super soft! He does need some work with men. He can become fearful of men at times (which can be mistaken for aggression) The issue is quite odd. He is fine with men and actually becomes quite loving and cuddly with them at times but barks and growls at men if he is near a women (almost as if he goes into protective mode) He is currently at a foster home that is diligently working on helping him become more comfortable around men. He would do best in a women only home but would do fine in a home with both women and men as long as they are patient and willing to continue to help him build trust. Winston is very sweet and would love to have a home with another furry friend or two.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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