Ariel's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Ariel's Story...
Ariel is a 1 to 1 1/2 year old Doxie/Shepherd mix. She came to us from a high kill pound in Northwest IN with her 8 puppies. All her pups have found homes and now it is Ariel's turn!

Ariel came to us heartworm positive. After 3 months of medical care, Ariel is healthy, but will need to be retested on 4/20/12 to be sure she is still heartworm free. If her test is negative, she will then be spayed. Ariel is microchipped, current on vaccines, and deworming.

Ariel is GREAT with other dogs big or small, great with kids of all ages, and has no food aggression issues. She walks nicely on a leash and is learning some commands such as sit, stay, and off. She is completely potty trained a crate trained and loves to snuggle.

If you are interested in Ariel, please contact our Canine Adoption Coordinator, at dogadoptions@rornfp.org for more info. Please note, we do not have a building, so there are no "viewing hours". Please email for an application as our volunteers may not be able to return your call promptly. Thank you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ariel, a Oak Lawn Dachshund/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund/Shepherd (Unknown Type) for sale in Oak Lawn, or seeking a Dachshund/Shepherd (Unknown Type) dog from a breeder in Oak Lawn.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oak Lawn 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 Lawn 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/Shepherd (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Dachshund/Shepherd (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oak Lawn paves the way for another one to be saved.
