Norman's Story...
Norman is an older Dachshund (approx. 7 yrs old) that is a real little sweetheart. He gets around like a trooper and follows you everywhere. He is friendly with everyone and everything. He has few teeth missing in the front but has no problem eating. We would like to find him a nice home where he will be loved and cherished for the little dear that he is.

Norman would make a wonderful companion for an older single or a couple that would like to get out and take leisurely, short walks. He doesn’t really need to be walked other than for some change of scenery as he gets enough exercise just following his person around.

He has won the hearts of everyone at the shelter and now with Ugly Mutts as well. Norman still has life to live and we would like to see someone get the enjoyment this little guy has to offer.

Here is what his foster family had to say about Norman:

Norman is sweet and hilarious – everyone loves him! He is always up for a good tummy rub and a yummy meal. He has met people of all ages but seems to prefer adult companionship. He is fine with other dogs and cats in the home. He is fully leash trained. He doesn’t have much interest in going out because of the cold weather so we take him for walks in the apartment hallway and he loves that. I think once the weather is warmer he will really enjoy going out for walks. He is fully house trained as long as he gets out on time.

Norman would be great in an apartment. He doesn’t play with toys but just lies around with you and loves to cuddle. It would be nice if Norman found a home where someone is home most of the time and just wants a little companion. Someone that was loving and who would enjoy this little guy.

If you are interested in Norman please go to our website at and submit an application and we would be happy to discuss any questions you may have about him. He is totally up to date on all his vetting and has had a healthy vet check.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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