Are you looking for the perfect Dachshund? Look no further! MARLEY is a 4 year old, smooth black and tan, slightly underweight tweenie (17 lbs) male Dachshund (akc with no papers) who is looking for a forever family of his very own. MARLEY is a healthy, happy and very handsome little man. He loves to give kisses, cuddle and crawl in your lap under a blanket while you read or watch a movie and loves to lay in the sunshine (what Doxie doesn't?). His favorite game? FETCH! FETCH! and yep, you guessed it, more FETCH! MARLEY also likes to go for rides in the car. If you have a seat for him to see sit and see out the window, all the better. He is quiet and well mannered. MARLEY loves his people and will dote on you He is truly a loyal friend.
MARLEY will do best as the one and only child in a family with a stay at home parent (work from home or retired) - no kids or grandkids- that way he can give you all his love and affection. Like all Dachshunds, MARLEY is high energy and enjoys playing and warming his little bones in the sunshine, so along with regular walks around his neighborhood, MARLEY needs a secure fenced yard to run around and explore safely. While small in stature, doxies are big on personality and don't generally do well in apartments, with all of the noises and traffic that come with multiple dwellings in a confined space. To best set up our doxies and their new families for success, ODR, Inc., adopt to families who live in single family homes with secure fenced yards.
OUR CRITERIA (aka The Fine Print):
Based on 30 years of experience with rescue doxies, we have pretty strict criteria. Do you work from home/stay at home/work part time? Have a securely fenced yard? We do not place same gender dogs in a home unless they were raised together. We prefer non smokers and a home with no other small animals (ferrets, hamsters, etc). Remember, these are rescues; many were surrendered because of these issues.
WHAT YOU GET IN RETURN WITH YOUR LITTLE RESCUE:
All our dogs are fully vetted, including spay/neuter, rabies, DHPP, Bordetella, Pyrantyl, nails trimmed, and dental when needed. They'll come with a basket of goodies, food, toys and a custom made harness. The adoption fee is $495, sorry no exceptions, as this covers the cost to rescue them, vet them and take care of them while in our rescue. It also helps towards the care of other doxies that come with huge vet or dental bills or need extensive behavioral training.
Can you give MARLEY a happy, carefree life again? If interested, please complete the adoption questionnaire at www.odr-inc.org and email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The adoption committee will attempt to be in contact with you within 48-72 hours. Please be patient as we are solely volunteer run.
