Nellie's Story...
I’m a sweet cuddle bug once we get to know each other. I am quiet and don’t demand a lot of activity. I do enjoy being around other dogs, mostly smaller ones, cats and I like children (all ages) as well. I am housetrained, crate trained, but prefer snuggling in a lap or in the bed rather than going for a walk. Please contact HPPL to make arrangements to meet me.. My edob is 12/08.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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