Duck's Story...
Duck’s foster human “found” him when Duck ran into her house in mid-December. While Duck’s early life will remain a mystery, it is no secret that Duck is one amazing dog!
Tell me about Duck. I’m glad you asked! Duck is friendly, likes to please, is enthusiastic, outgoing, and calm. Duck is fantastic on jogs, loves hugs, and enjoys meeting new people. He is energetic around people, but extremely calm when outside or inside by himself. Duck loves a good nap!
What does Duck like? Duck likes just about everything, except for his kennel and grooming sometimes. Duck likes other dogs, children of all shapes and sizes, adults, strangers, car rides, cats and new places. Duck is not a dog that is afraid of the occasional loud noise. Duck is not a barker, but may sometimes howl and gulp food.
Is Duck trained? Duck is working on becoming house and crate trained. He is used to a collar and leash and enjoys walks. Duck is an intelligent dog that knows the commands sit, leave it, down/off, come, and lay down.
Duck will be a wonderful addition to your home and family. He is the complete package. Please take the time to meet Duck, and you will soon find out for yourself!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Duck, a Houston Dachshund/Jack Russell Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund/Jack Russell Terrier for sale in Houston, or seeking a Dachshund/Jack Russell Terrier dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston 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 Houston 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/Jack Russell Terrier breeders who help with Dachshund/Jack Russell Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
