Quincey's Story...
Quincy, Long Haired Multi Colored Dachshund, is a gorgeous neutered 18 month old Tweeny who weighs about 11 pounds. He loves other dogs but would probably do best with one other dog to share your attention with. He loves to swim (not at all like the typical dachshund) and taking hikes in the woods. He walks beautifully with or without a leash, he stays with you. He is Mr. Social Butterfly; he is really super with other dogs and loves to play all day long. He would rather play with dogs than toys. Great in the car, loves it, he is a very good traveler, and he actually came here from Texas. He is a really good watch dog and takes care of his people. Loves to cuddle up and snuggle with you once he gets to know you! We think Quincy would probably be good with children. He also likes to curl up and snooze with the kitties. He also absolutely loves the crate also makes not one peep.The FASTEST way to reach us about this animal is by email:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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