Ruby Red's Story...
They say diamonds are a girl's best friend, but really, who needs diamonds when you have a rare and precious ruby. Meet Ruby Red. This little gem is about 5 years old, and she's everyone's best friend. "Lil Red", as we often call her, loves people, especially kids. She is a certified jewel...well certified lap dog, either way she's a treasure :). There isn't a place she loves more than being in your lap, by your side or snuggled up under the covers with you on these cool fall nights.

Don't think because she likes to snuggle she's needy, Lil Red is definitely an independent girl. She gets along great with other dogs but doesn't care to be "bossed" around by them. This girl can think for herself and she thinks exploring the back yard with her furry friends, or chasing the occasionaly butterfly is a great way to spend the afternoon. Lil Red also thinks cats are pretty cool.

Lil Red will make someone the perfect little companion. She's well mannered, smart and extremely loving. She is also house trained and crate trained. If you would like to make Ruby Red part of your family, please apply online at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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