Jack's Story...


Jack just turned 12-years-old last weekend and has been a wonderful pet for our family for the most part. We bought him from a breeder in Strafford, Mo. after his original breeder passed away from cancer. He was a small puppy at the time and we were told he would be a miniature, however he has grown to be a full size standard dachshund. He enjoys chasing tennis balls endlessly, swimming in the lake and going for jeep rides. Unfortunately, since our youngest son came home 2 years ago, he has also made it his practice to swipe food out of little hands, which is cause for much yelling in the house. We have been putting him in his kennel or outside for much of the past 2 years in order to keep the peace but recently Jack has showed his displeasure in this situation by peeing on the rugs inside repeatedly. He is housebroken so we are troubled by the recent behavior and feel rehoming may be his best option. We hope he can find a quiet home with someone who will snuggle on the sofa.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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