Pilgrim's Story...
Tiny 8.5 lb Pilgrim is one of seven shelter dogs we squeezed in during Thanksgiving. This little guy was picked up as a stray. His owner actually came in to the shelter to claim him. After finding out the various redemption fees, he said he was going to look into neuter options and would get back to the shelter. The shelter never heard from him again.

Pilgrim had a rough time in the kennel environment. He didn't like the chaos and noise. He spent almost a whole month in the shelter because of his owner hold and because there is very little adoption traffic. Finally he made it on a rescue transport.

Pilgrim is a sweet, tiny boy. He is a little shy at first but as he decompressed, he is got braver and bolder. He really wants to be with people. He loves sitting on laps and would be thrilled to get to cuddle in the big bed.

Pilgrim would like a home with a small canine buddy (the bigger doxies intimidate him) and older or no children. He wants someone to take him on daily walks to make up for all his missed socialization as a puppy.

We've had Pilgrim neutered, micro chipped and vaccinated. He is crate trained.
His tax deductible adoption fee is $300.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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