Downie's Story...
What a cutie pie! This little man has been living in a loving home but now finds himself in need of a Forever Home. He gets along well with people and dogs and is full of kisses and joyful dancing. He's house trained and crate trained and knows some basic commands. As he has a bit of a tendency towards stubbornness, we feel a home without small children would be best and we certainly feel he would benefit from some training that would remind him of his rightful place in the home! He's smart and eager to learn and to please, he just needs someone to help smooth out his "ruff" edges! He's handsome, young, and has the potential to be the canine companion of your dreams. Please come meet him and look into his chocolate eyes -- you'll be smitten!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hendersonville 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 Hendersonville 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/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Dachshund/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hendersonville paves the way for another one to be saved.
