Rosie's Story...
Rosie is a 1-2 year old, 12lb, Dachshund/terrier Mix. She has the BEAUTIFUL dapple coloring of a dachshund, and the soft fur and floppy ears of a dachshund, but she has long springy legs like a terrier.

Rosie was dumped at shelter in TX because her family was moving and they didn't want to take her with them. It was no fault of hers. We knew Rosie would find a wonderful home in CO where she could use those long legs to explore the CO mountains, and where she would find a family who would love her unconditionally, and never leave her behind. Rosie has now been in foster care for a while, and here is what her foster has to say:

"Rosie is a sweet, shy girl, who just wants to spend time with you. She loves belly rubs and tasty treats. Kibble is not always her favorite, but when mixed with a bit of canned food, she will eat her regular meals.
Rosie is house trained after getting used to her new schedule. She walks easily on a leash and must have done so in a previous life. She can be scared at first, rolling on her back when you approach, but she will warm up after a few days and then just wants her belly rubbed. Rosie loves to run in the yard and takes her walks seriously. She has not discovered toys yet, but she will once she feels more secure. She likes to hang out on the couch with you or on your lap. Our girl is good with other dogs in the house.
Rosie stays in her crate, she will whine initially, but settle down after a short while. She clearly prefers life without crate and after an adjustment period will do well outside the crate as she is house trained, neither chewing on anything nor picking toys herself."

Unfortunately, it seems Rosie's last owners didn't take the best care of her. Because of this, Rosie is Heart Worm positive. LUCKILY heart worm is 100% treatable and Rosie will make a full recovery once her treatment is done. She will need an adopter who can go through the treatment with her, BUT WE WILL PAY FOR THE WHOLE TREATMENT THROUGH OUR VET. about 50% of the dogs we get from TX are unfortunately HW positive, so we know exactly how to handle it. There has never been a dog in our rescue that has had long term issues or did not recover 100%. Since we are covering the costs, there is really nothing to worry about, other than loving the little girl who will have a long, happy, healthy life!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rosie, a Boulder Dachshund/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Boulder, or seeking a Dachshund/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog from a breeder in Boulder.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Boulder 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 Boulder 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/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Dachshund/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Boulder paves the way for another one to be saved.
