Baxter's Info...

I am housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Baxter's Story...
Baxter came from a high kill shelter in Texas. He is about five to six months old.

Baxter is a little timid and shy at first and can be a little skittish in new situations that he is unsure of. He just needs time to settle in,

After settling into his loving home, he is feeling better and coming out of his shell. A home with older kids would be better for Baxter and having another dog in the home would benefit him greatly to help him build confidence and make him feel secure.

He does great going potty outside, He didn't like his harness and leash at first, but now he is doing great and enjoying walks. He loves to play with toys and get all of the toys out of the toy bin, :)

He loves his furry foster brother Wally and follows him everywhere. His favorite human in the home is his 13 year old foster sister Audrey. He was extremely anxious at night alone in his pen, but sleeps like a log in Audrey's bed with her. He is a good bed sleeper and holds his pee all night. Just wants to be near his person, Does not make a peep or move around much. :)

He is a sweet and sensitive guy looking for love and to feel secure.

Adoption Fee is $325 with Spay/Neuter Contract. A separate $100 deposit will be collected but will be returned after we receive the spay/neuter certificate for your puppy at 6 months of age.

Applications are required prior to meeting the puppy. Please go to and click on Adopt.. Calling or emailing may delay your consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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