Pippin's Story...
Pippin is such a baby--he loves to snuggle and be held. He is almost solid black--just a touch of white on his chest and the very tips of two feet. He is 5 months old and currently 11 lbs. When he is full grown, he will probably be no more than 20-25 lbs. He has had his first puppy vaccines and rabies shot.. The stress and poor diet from over three weeks in the county shelter probably caused Pippin to develop demodectic mange. This is the NON-contagious skin condition that often surfaces when the immune system of a puppy is suppressed, causing hair loss. We caught it early though, and we expect a full recovery! (You can look it up at www.peteducation.com for more information.) His brother Merry is also available, and they would make a great pair if you are interested in adopting two! Both were rescued from the shelter by the HSOW just before they would have been put down. Due to circumstances at his foster home, he is not yet housetrained; however, his new owners must be willing to make him an indoor or indoor/outdoor pet. If you are interested, please email blairhancock@aol.com for more information or to arrange a visit. The $90 adoption fee includes vaccines, rabies shot, health care, and cost of neuter when he is ready.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in North Wilkesboro 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 North Wilkesboro 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/Beagle breeders who help with Dachshund/Beagle rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in North Wilkesboro paves the way for another one to be saved.
