Wynnie's Story...
Wynnie was sadly surrendered by her family due to issues that had nothing to do with this precious girl. She had been with the family since she was a puppy and will need someone that will love her as much as they did. She is an adorable little dog that would do best in an adult only home or in a home with older children only as she was never socialized around young children. She is great with cats and is fine with other dogs although she can get jealous of other dogs wanting the attention for herself.


Wynnie is used to living in a home and getting her exercise from running in the backyard chasing the squirrels. She never bothers with birds or rabbits or cats, just has a thing for squirrels. She grew up with cats in the home and loves to play with them. Unfortunately a family member was willing to take the Wynnie's best friend, the family cat, but didn't have the space or inclination to own a dog.


Wynnie is a pretty typical little dog. She is attentive, loyal and loving. She enjoys going for walks but doesn't need too much in the way of exercise as she is fairly active in the home. She has a lovely coat that will require some regular grooming to keep her looking beautiful but overall she is an easy to care for pet.


Wynnie could tell there was something going on with her family and has recently started crying when her family left the home. For most of her life this had not been a problem however and we are sure that once she gets settled into a new home she will be fine once again however, we think placing her in a home rather than an apartment would be best. As well, she is used to living in a house where she was allowed to run and play in the backyard and would probably appreciate having that same advantage in her new home.


Wynnie is 5 years old and weighs just under 15 lbs. She has the size and build of a Dachshund, with the coat of a Schnauzer. She is actually a very cute dog with a sweet disposition. She would be a wonderful pet for someone that likes to go for walks and who would enjoy having a little companion to keep them company during the day. We would not like to see Wynnie in a home where she is left for any real length of time but rather with someone who either works from home or who spends little time away from the home. She would be excellent with a retired couple, a single person or a stay at home mom with older children.


Wynnie is used to being part of the family and likes to sleep at the foot of your bed. She will follow her people and wants to be with them wherever they go. She is an affectionate dog and loves attention. She is great with other pets and has no problem with strangers, making friends easily wherever she goes. She is afraid of thunder storms and is not a fan of water.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Wynnie, a Hamilton Dachshund/Schnauzer (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund/Schnauzer (Miniature) for sale in Hamilton, or seeking a Dachshund/Schnauzer (Miniature) 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/Schnauzer (Miniature) breeders who help with Dachshund/Schnauzer (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hamilton paves the way for another one to be saved.
