Petey's Story...
The only thing Petey wants for Christmas is a forever place of his very own. He lost the only home he's ever known when his guardians moved and didn't take him with them. Of course, we rescued this Dachsund Mix cutie. Now he is searching for his new buddy at ITVRescue.org. Petey is 6 years young and weighs a whopping 11 pounds! Just look how cute his photo shoot turned out! The brown spot on his left eye will remind you of the sweet dog in The Little Rascals TV series with a gang of friends who loved him. Petey can be that special somebody in your life as you sit on the couch and snuggle. Petey loves play time and has a special squeaky chicken that keeps him very busy. He was in a foster home where he is being well cared for. Soft and sweet, Petey is good with children and cats. He needs an introduction to other dogs and is learning to walk on a leash with a harness. Petey does well in his crate and will walk in circles to signal he needs to go outside and do his business. Petey has a few quirks so will be best with an experienced adopter. For example, he has some fears, such as baths, so he needs someone willing to work with his fears and help him overcome them. He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and heartworm tested. Petey hit an unexpected sad speed bump in his life, but we are ready to match him with his forever person. If you think our amazing and adorable rescue could be your next best friend, hurry and submit your adoption application. Guys like Petey are popular and never hang around very long!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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