Missy's Story...
Would you just look at this precious girl? Check out the 2nd picture...she actually rolls over and waves to you when she wants attention.

Missy's story is so very sad. She is a purebred black/tan Doxie that's only 7 pounds. She's 10 years old but acts like she's 5, with plenty of energy and excellent health. She lived with an elderly woman for most of her life and, sadly, the woman died last year. Missy is now living with a family member, but she and her husband travel with their jobs and Missy ends up being crated 18-20 hours a day most days. That is no kind of life for any dog, and they want to find another home for her where she will be loved and cherished like she deserves.

Poor Missy has lost quite a few teeth and her little tongue sticks out ever so slightly...which is really quite cute, we swear. She's been paper trained, but enjoys "going" outside as well. She has a bit of a weak bladder and needs to "tinkle" every 3-4 hours, so someone who is home most of the day and night would be ideal for her.

Missy is extremely sweet and shy, very submissive. She is already spayed, current on all of her vaccines, hw negative, and on monthly hw prevention. She's a real doll baby.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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