Rex's Story...
Rex is a beautiful, shy 7 yrs dachshund and about 10 lbs. He is a total love bug once he knows you, but is very anxious and afraid of people he doesn’t know, loud noises, other unfamiliar animals, etc. He needs a quiet home without a lot of distractions. When calm, he is sweet, affectionate dog, aching for attention. He loves to go for rides, He plays some ball. He gets along with other animals that he’s been introduced to. He will bark at strangers passing by. He will make a wonderful pet for someone that has time to bond with him and give him the attention he craves. Uses doggy door for outdoor needs. Eats calmly but will shy away from food if another animal approaches or any loud noises. He knows his name and responds if not intent on something more interesting.

He would do very well with a similar size alpha dog that likes to play.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Pinellas Park 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 Pinellas Park 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!
