I have perfect manners because I am housebroken and crate trained. My foster family does not have to crate me when they are gone. I get to have free reign in the house because nothing is ever amiss when they return.
I like dogs and I do ok with cats. I am curious about those fast cats and would do fine in a home that has cats that are used to having a dog as a pet.
I love going on walks and playing with toys. I am an excellent hunter of all things that go squeak!
I am not sure of my age, I think around 8 or 9. That means I am well versed on being the best pet ever! I weigh in at 20lbs but the doc says I look pretty good. I have been getting spa treatments from my foster family to help try and fill in some fur loss. I LOVE spa days!
My foster family says I am a mellow, sweet boy who is going to make the perfect addition to your family.
If you are interested in adopting Bowie, you can fill out an application right on our website! Go to dreamhappytails.org/adoptform.shtml . Bowie 's adoption fee is $300.00. All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds. Bowie will go to his new home microchipped, altered, heartworm tested, and up to date on vaccinations. Most dogs' veterinary expenses are greater than our adoption fees.
DREAM is an all-volunteer rescue group, and we focus on the Atlanta, North Georgia and Savannah area. Because we are all volunteers, we can consider applications only within an hour of these areas. DREAM does not recommend purebred dachshunds for families with children under 5, or families planning to have children during the dog's lifetime. Dachshunds are often not patient with little kids, and kids can accidentally hurt a doxie's back.
