Potato Chip's Story...
This adorable senior longhair tweenie doxie was dumped outside a local shelter the day after Hurricane Irene. He's a sweet older guy who is obviously very confused by his abandonment and hoping to find a home that will appreciate him. Any doxie lover knows doxies are like potato chips- you can't have just one! Please submit an application if you would like to add our Potato Chip to your family. UPDATE: Potato Chip had a much needed dental and had a lot of rotted teeth extracted- he feels so much better and is eating great now! His bloodwork did show some kidney disease so he will need to be on a prescription kidney diet to help him, and is looking for a home that will make sure he gets proper vet care and enjoys whatever time he has left. He is a very cheerful spunky friendly little guy, fine with other dogs. He is well-mannered and housebroken, and loves a soft fuzzy bed to sleep in.

We do not have a shelter- all our pets are in foster homes and can be seen by appointment only during the week, or at our weekly pet adoptions every Sunday at the Animal Clinic of Morris Plains from 12:30 to 3PM at 3009 Route 10 East next to 5 Star Car Wash (formerly Boulder Car Wash) in Morris Plains (Denville on GPS). To help us better match a pet to your household, we request you fill out an application on our homepage www.secondchance.petfinder.com and copy and paste it into an email, or print it and bring it to our adoption day when you come. Local inquiries only please- we do not do long distance adoptions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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