Grandpa's Story...
Everyone loves grandpas and you will definitely love this one too. He's a senior Dachshund mix that was found as a stray by the Avon Police Department. Grandpa went into foster care so he wouldn't have to be at the shelter during his waiting period to see if anyone would claim him. Here's what his loving foster mom had to say about him..."Grandpa can make himself at home in any heart. He is great company for an afternoon or evening nap. He needs frequent potty breaks to avoid accidents. If kept on a schedule he's fine. Grandpa does not like to be crated. This sweet senior enjoys hiding under blankets, but don't worry, he's easy to spot because his wagging tail never quite makes it under the blanket." Grandpa is still in foster care but is now available for adoption. If you are interested in meeting this gentle soul please email Mary at to set up an appointment.

All dogs receive one or more vaccinations, a basic veterinary examination, are wormed, heartworm tested and spayed or neutered. Dogs 3 months and older are micro-chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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