Sonny's Info...

Sonny's Story...
Sonny is a beautiful two year old purebred doxi who had a broken leg after being hit by a car and was never claimed by his owner. While at the animal hospital it was determined that Sonny has detached retinae and will eventually go blind. He has no idea he is a special needs boy - he loves everyone and frolics around like the rest of his foster friends (although he has made his way into the pool once or twice - well, three times). As of now his sight is limited but it doesn't stop him from being happy and playful. We are always amazed at the compassionate people who adopt special needs animals, especially dogs who are sight impaired, as they have a remarkable way of compensating with their remaining senses when they lose their sight. We have no doubt Sonny will find his forever home. Homeless Paws would continue to sponsor Sonny in a permanent foster situation, and we would assume his medical needs in exchange for a home where he can live a happy, healthy life being loved as he deserves. Sonny is neutered and UTD. If you would consider making a home for Sonny, please contact us

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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