ABBIGAIL is a very sweet approximately 6.5 year old black and tan smooth 11 lb. female doxie. She was born with angular deformities in both front limbs which are most likely breed related and congenital. The exact cause of her abnormal gait and stance are unknown. If you have followed Kramer and his page Krazy for Kramer you will notice she has a similar condition. Although, it might slow her down a bit, she has no trouble getting around and is in no pain.
ABBIGAIL will do best in a family with a stay at home parent (work from home or retired) and only older children (over age 12), who are familiar with the special needs of Dachshunds. ABBY loves sitting on your lap, burrowing in blankets, loves to stay warm and will attack your vacuum with great vigor! She is just a sweet easy going fantastic little dog looking for that forever family to love. She may be placed with a gentlemanly male dog and older kids are o.k. too.
Like all Dachshunds, ABBIGAIL is high energy and enjoys playing and warming her little bones in the sunshine, so along with regular walks around her neighborhood, ABBIGAIL needs a secure fenced yard to run around and explore safely. While small in stature, doxies are big on personality and don't generally do well in apartments, with all of the noises and traffic that come with multiple dwellings in a confined space. To best set up our doxies and their new families for success, ODR, Inc., adopt to families who live in single family homes with secure fenced yards.
OUR CRITERIA (aka The Fine Print):
Based on 30 years of experience with rescue doxies, we have pretty strict criteria. Do you work from home/stay at home/work part time? Have a securely fenced yard? We do not place same gender dogs in a home unless they were raised together, and children need to be 12 or older (some exceptions IF the dog is a puppy or the child has been raised with a doxie). We prefer non smokers and a home with no other small animals (ferrets, hamsters, etc). Cats are on a case by case basis depending on the dog. Remember, these are rescues; many were surrendered because of these issues.
WHAT YOU GET IN RETURN WITH YOUR LITTLE RESCUE:
All our dogs are fully vetted, including spay/neuter, rabies, DHPP, Bordetella, Pyrantyl, nails trimmed, and dental when needed. They'll come with a basket of goodies, food, toys and a custom made harness. The adoption fee is $275, sorry no exceptions, as this covers the cost to rescue them, vet them and take care of them while in our rescue. It also helps towards the care of other doxies that come with huge vet or dental bills or need extensive behavioral training.
Can you give ABBIGAIL a happy, carefree life that she deserves? If interested, please complete the adoption questionnaire at www.odr-inc.org and email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The adoption committee will attempt to be in touch with you within 48 -72 hours. Please be patient as we are solely volunteer run.
