Duncan's Story...
Duncan (DOB 11-17-10) came into rescue having never been out of his house before. He had received no socialization or medical care. We immediately started Duncan in Dachshund Boot Camp. We quickly vaccinated and neutered him and then began teaching him about the outside world. Because he is young, we decided not to coddle him along and instead basically threw him into the deep end of the pool. Within two week s of arriving in rescue Duncan attended two adoption events, one with thousands of visitors. By the end of the second event, Duncan was the favorite of all the visitors and would even approach strangers for a treat. This is great progress from a dog that was so scared his first day in rescue, we couldn’t catch him!

Duncan is a very sweet, friendly dog and very loving. He still is worried about strangers but he is getting better. He needs a home that will continue to expose him to the world by taking him on walks to new and different places. Duncan loves to play with other dogs so his ideal home would have a playful canine companion. Duncan is a tiny guy (8.5 lbs) so we think he could learn to be safe with cats.

We will admit to spoiling Duncan. He was so worried when he first came into rescue that we let him sleep in the big bed. Needless to say, that is where he has been sleeping ever since.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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