I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.

MAX's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

MAX's Story...
We would love to find a new home that is best for Max's needs. He is a 6 year old male Doxy that's weighs about 12 pounds...total lover!!! I would like to emphasize that his ideal home would probably be with a retired older couple or single person who could cherish him and give him the special attention he needs. He does love kids and other animals, but due to his anxiety it takes extra tlc initially. My daughter and I adopted him about a year and 5 months ago from a family that let's just say was not very good to him and did not like the breed. He loves our other Doxy Lance, myself, and my daughter...due to his rehoming I think he developed anxiety from what I have read. He is house trained, but started to develop a severe marking problem that I am not equipped to deal with. I work many hours during the week and have had to resort to crating him and diapering him which makes things worse. I think this further makes him want to mark and causes him to feel sad. I think he needs to roam freely with more care and attention than I can give. He really is the sweetest doggy, but I just don't think he was socialized well early on. Max loves cuddles and will sit with you all day if you let him...walks and the outdoors...playing with other dogs of his own breed primarily. He can be a best friend to someone who loves his breed and can care for a special needs animal!!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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