Buzz's Story...
Buzz (black and tan piebald) and Woody (red) are approximately 7-8 year old dachshunds that landed in rescue after being abandoned in an apartment vacated by their owner. When the landlord discovered them, they were transferred to a shelter and rescue was called! Just like their names imply from the Toy Story series — they were left behind when their owner was done loving them, but it is our hope that now we can rehome them with an owner that will never be done loving them! And it is no doubt that in both of these boys their new owner will have a forever-after-friend as they are hopelessly devoted to their humans!

These boys have obviously been loved by someone at some point as they are incredibly sweet — given the award of “the sweetest dachshunds ever” at the vet’s office. They have blended in well to their foster home — getting along with all of the other dachshunds as well as the human children (even sleeping with one of the human kids in his bed). Buzz and Woody walk well on leashes, are crate trained and working on remember their house training (although they will need some diligence in this department). We do believe that at one point they were house trained but adjusting to a new environment after your entire world has been turned upside down is tough — and we know that! So currently they wear belly bands inside (which they do not bother) and love to be outside with their foster family in the back yard on beautiful days. The only species they seem adverse to sharing their space with are cats. They seem to prefer to bark at them instead — so a feline-less home would be best! Both boys love to play with toys and snuggle together under the blankets. Truly big time pals — they stay piled on top of one another at any opportunity to snuggle. They are most willing to have siblings (either other dogs or humans) so long as they have laps to sit in and people to love! These boys are silly and sure to fill your home and hearts with lots of joy. Woody will lean on you until you acknowledge his attempt to get your attention and Buzz snuggles right in to give kisses. And while we know that at some point in their little lives Buzz and Woody had an owner that cared — in recent years it appears that either their owner could not afford proper vetting or did not bother. These boys won another “award” at the vet being the most tooth extractions in one day. The duo went in with 84 teeth and came out with only 10 between them! The good news is it has not slowed either one down one bit and no more big dentals to have to worry with in their future (a huge savings to their new owners). Now healthy and happy — and learning all about second chances — this duo is ready to go to a new home.

Buzz and Woody are ready to go to infinity and beyond with their new family — neutered, heartworm negative, current on vaccinations and microchipped — along with complete dentals! Applicants in or near North Carolina are preferred. Transports will not be allowed — any interested adopters should be prepared to travel to North Carolina to adopt. If you are interested in adopting this duo, please complete an adoption application and email their foster mom.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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