Tank's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and not good with kids.

Tank's Story...
Tank was hit by a car and laid in an animal control facility for several days before arriving at Animal Lifeline. He had sustained a broken pelvis and his leg was broken in two spots. He underwent surgery and is recovering well but still has about 7 weeks of recovery left (until about the end of March). He was born in January 2008 and can be shy when you first meet him but once he gets to know he, all he wants is attention. He would probably to best in a home without young children as lots of activity makes him nervous.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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