Rusty's Info...

Rusty's Story...
"Rusty" is a handsome 5-year old male Dachshund who arrived at the HSOV on January 18, 2017 after he was picked up on Sand Hill/Sheets Run Road by the Washington County (Ohio) Dog Warden. He was wearing a collar when he entered our shelter but, unfortunately, there was neither an id tag nor a dog tag to enable us to locate his owner. "Rusty" has a red long-haired coat with black highlights, short legs, a long body, a long tail, and an adorable Dachshund face with a long muzzle and long floppy ears which are covered with wavy hair. This little guy has the sweetest disposition and gives great doggy kisses :) "Rusty" weighs just 11.4 lbs. We hope that his family sees his photos on our petfinder/facebook pages and comes to take him home asap. If that happy reunion should not take place, "Rusty" will be available for adoption on January 21, 2017.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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