Groot's Story...
Hi! I am Groot!
I am an 11 week old, 7 pound firecracker. 😊 My foster mom swears that I'm part billy goat because I don't run, I hop like a little goat when I play and boy oh boy, do I love to play!.. You wouldn't know it to look at me, but I was really sick, really really sick... I couldn't walk and had ouchie sores all over. I am one tough cookie and fought to stay here. I'm all better now and ready for my own family. I am kid tested and doggy approved. I'm good with kitty cats too, but sometimes I annoy them to the point that they don't like me very much... teeheehee. I am crate trained, 90% house broken and walk on a leash like a big boy. My foster family will let me stay loose in the house for short periods of time when they aren't home. I behave and don't potty or chew on anything. Come meet me. Maybe we'll fall in love and I can take you home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Groot, a Smithfield Dachshund/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Smithfield, or seeking a Dachshund/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) puppy from a breeder in Smithfield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Smithfield 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 Smithfield 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/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Dachshund/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Smithfield paves the way for another one to be saved.
