Harvey's Story...
Why Choose me?

Harvey is a great dog! I could tell he was unsure of all of the barking around him, so I sat with him in his kennel, and he came to me. He let me pet and hold him, and after a while, he was ready for a walk. He has a note on his gate stating, “I’m still a little shy and don’t like leashes very much, but I’m sooo sweet.” He really is super sweet. He was okay on a leash, but not being used to one, he would stop and start. Once we were in an interaction pen, he did the usual exploring, but every time I called him, he ran to me. Harvey is adorable. He has a soft coat, and I loved holding him. Surely, someone is looking for this sweet boy. Come meet Harvey today. He’s such a cutie!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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