Rosco's Story...
Meet Rosco...the world's best smiler. Yep - this little guy not only smiles at you, but he's guaranteed to put a smile on you as well. He's ~5 years old, weighs ~16 lbs, and is a mix of chi-chi & doxie. He's Mr Personality for sure!!! He's pretty new to us, so stay tuned for more updates. For now, we know he never meets a stranger, is doing great with his house training, loves to explore the backyard, and most definitely enjoys a nice warm lap.

If you are interested in adopting Rosco, you can fill out an application right on our website! Go to dreamhappytails.org/adoptform.shtml . Rosco 's adoption fee is $350. All adoption fees go directly to veterinary care for DREAM dachshunds. 17-013 will go to his/her 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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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