Tucker's Story...
Tucker was one of three that came to rescue due to a change in the families situation. Tucker has never been an only dog and suffers separation anxiety if left alone. He will howl until his family returns. If he had the company of another dog, he may be just fine, he does fine in his foster home. He is 6 1/2 years old, still relatively young for a Dachshund since they commonly live to age 16 and older. He uses a doggy door. He is outgoing and friendly but has just a tad of alpha in him. He usually gets along great with all the other fosters but will become a little protective of a toy or food that he has. He may have difficulty with another alpha male, probably not a female. He is a very sweet dog that just loves attention and will give you kisses and loves to be next to you or in your lap if you allow it. He is a very active boy and would love walks or just playing with another dog or you in the back yard. He says he is not ready to be just a couch potato. We only adopt out in the state of Arizona. He is ready for a home as soon as the right one comes along!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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