Gustavo's Story...
If you look up the definition of Gustavo in Urban Dictionary (it is what all the kids are referencing these days after all) you are likely to find a picture of this charming bachelor. Gustavo means handsome and sweet; the one everyone wants to date. Just look at him. Seems accurate to us! A very pregnant Mama and Gustavo, lost their home last year when their human went into hospice and members of the family weren't willing to take them in. Both were on their way to a high kill shelter until one of our amazing foster families reached out to us and together we were able to rescue them. Now that Gustavo's kiddos, Nova, Vega, Newton, Darwin, Einstein, and Atom have been adopted, it's Mr. Suave's turn to find his forever home. This looker is the total package. Not only is he the trifecta...dog (large and small), cat and kid friendly (dog-savvy kids only please), but at 14 pounds and 5 year old, Gustavo is also polite, quiet, full of cuddles and exudes debonair charm. He is all for a snuggle session (and sleeping in bed) but also loves a good hike or a walk in the neighborhood to pickup his human foster siblings from the bus. After all he has been through (or maybe because a gentleman has to play a little hard to get), G can be shy with new people initially but once he gets to know you, he is your best friend and one heck of a handsome date. Gustavo is just near perfect when it comes to house breaking and crate training, he is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative, and microchipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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