Scrappy Doo's Story...
Scrappy Doo is a 6 and 1/2 month old smooth male dachshund puppy who is a very active, affectionate, high energy little fellow. He has two speeds: "Asleep" and "Full Speed Ahead"! Scrappy is absolutely adorable with ears that stick out to the side (picture Sally Field in "The Flying Nun") and a tail that makes a couple of small zig-zags. Don't worry, despite the kinks, Scrappy's tail wags JUST FINE! He's a bundle of energy and will bound over to you, jump in your lap without warning, wrap his front paws around your neck and lick your face. Sometimes Scrappy gets a little overly zealous and his kisses turn into little nibbles, which his foster family tries to discourage.

Scrappy gets along with his foster sibling dachshunds. He also entertains himself well by playing with toys and chewing on cow hooves. He loves the Bobo stuffed toys -- fortunately dogs are color-blind so Scrappy's not aware that his favorite Bobo is *PINK*! (Don't tell him, please!!) He's a good watchdog, alerting the family to strange sounds and people approaching, but he doesn't bark unless there's something to bark at. Scrappy likes to explore his foster family's back yard and is quite interested in their koi pond. He frequently stands at the edge of the pond to watch the fish swimming.

In the evenings, Scrappy likes to relax on the couch and watch TV with his foster family. Scrappy sleeps through the night in his crate with no fuss. He's a good eater, and is learning to "sit" for treats.

He was abandoned by his original owner, who purchased him as a tiny puppy for her 4 year old daughter. She told the vet "I can't handle a puppy, a 4 year old and a baby". Unfortunately, like many people, she failed to think ahead to the long term responsibilities of pet ownership and when the care of the dog required effort, she got rid of him. Thankfully, a wonderful vet tech at the clinic took Scrappy Doo in to her home, and made sure he got all his shots, and other needed vet care along with neutering. Then she contacted us for help. We were glad to take this darling little dog, and so appreciate the vet tech's outstanding care for him. He will have some minimal vet work to finish up, and will be microchipped. Scrappy Doo will be ready for his new home around May 18th. Because of his high energy level, he will require owners who have had past experience in owning dachshunds or other small breeds of dogs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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