Bonez's Story...
Hi there. My name is Bonez. I got that name because when I came to Valley Dogs I was all bones.
I was picked up by Maricopa County Animal Care and Control as a stray, and my time there was just about up. I was lucky and Valley Dogs came and rescued me and I am so excited to get a second chance at a happy and healthy life.

I can be a bit shy and reserved at first, but don’t let me fool you – I am full of personality and love and will make you laugh at how silly I can be at times. I enjoy spending time cuddling and loving on my humans, but I also have times I like to be bit independent and do my own thing.

Because I am so small (from my shoulder I am the same height as a short street curb) I cannot jump up onto furniture. I can jump down off of furniture, but it is not good for me because it will cause spinal injuries. Steps and/or ramps are a necessity in my new home.

I love to be with my humans and am curious about everything so I will try to jump onto and will jump down off of furniture. You will have to be mindful of where I am so I don’t hurt myself trying to stay with you, so be prepared to lift me up and down as you move around the house (unless there are steps/ramps readily available to me). The human sized steps in my foster mommy’s home are hard for me to navigate because of my short legs. I have made it up and down a few, but it is difficult.

Don’t let my little legs fool you though – I love my walks and outside time with my humans. I may be little – but I do my best to keep up with the big dogs, although if we go for a long walk mommy has to carry me part of the way because I get winded.

Mommy says I am very good about going potty outside and I know how to use the doggie door. I have three other bigger dogs I am living with and although I don’t let them boss me around, we all do well together. I think I would like a little doggie companion to keep me company when my new humans aren’t around.

Can you give me the special loving home I need? If so, please contact my foster mommy to make arrangements to meet me. I am anxiously awaiting my new family and hope to meet them very soon.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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