Looking for a spunky little love bug to bring joy into your life? Look no further than Felipe! Felipe is a sweet little fella that was found as a stray. He loves everyone he meets and also interacts beautifully with an array of dogs, including those much larger than himself. Felipe is an active guy that would do best in a home environment where he can be kept busy to ensure his exercise requirements are met. A home with a more active family, children and/or another dog or dogs would be ideal.

Upon intake, an old scar on his head that contained cysts was noted. Surgical intervention was necessary, which was addressed when he was neutered. We are happy to report he has recovered beautifully. Felipe is now ready for his happily ever after. Can you make that happen for him? If so, please submit your application today!

Felipe is available for adoption through K-9 Rescue of the Eastern Shore. An adoption process is required to include filling out an online adoption application available at the following link:, veterinary and personal reference checks and a home visit are required prior to being approved to adopt.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Essex 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 Essex 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/Chihuahua breeders who help with Dachshund/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Essex paves the way for another one to be saved.
