Merle's Story...
Magical Merle is looking for love! Merle is a 9 year old, 12 pound gorgeous dapple & tan boy who is very loving.

Merle is a calm submissive boy who is a bit fearful with new people. He would do very well in a home where he could be an only dog, and ideally in a home where his people are home most of the time. He gets along well with other dogs, cats and children over the age of 10 years and Merle would thrive in a home where he would receive a lot of attention and love. Merle quickly becomes attached to ‘his person’.

Merle is house trained but like all dachshunds he will need to be confident in his environment to have good potty habits. All rescue dogs go thru a period of adjustment so understanding and patience is important. Merle is crate trained.

Merle has IVDD and does sometimes walk with a hunched back. He should never be permitted to jump off and on furniture or use any stairs. IVDD dogs live wonderful love filled lives! Merle also takes a daily thyroid medication and is doing very well.

Merle LOVES to cuddle and that includes special times in the 'big bed' in his foster home in Alabama. He would love a home where he can continue his big bed sleepathons!

Magical Merle is waiting for someone who is looking for snuggles, cuddles and loving. Look into those eyes..... why not apply to adopt this wonderful boy and make your dream and HIS come true!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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