Gertrude's Story...
Charming 8.5 lb, 5 yr old Gertrude came as the bonus dog when we were pulling another dog from the shelter. She was a stray no one ever claimed. Poor Gertie was terrified at being in the shelter and was in a kennel room with many big, loud dogs. The cold chain link kennels and the non-stop barking were too much for her. She spent all her time hiding under a blanket. When the shelter opened the kennel door just slightly to try and get her for us, she immediately tried to escape, high tailing it down the hall, desperate to get away. It was clear she needed to get out and into a home environment.

Cuddle bug Gertrude appears to have a dash of Chihuahua but that makes her better equipped for a home with stairs. She is good with older kids and adults and has even visited a senior home where she excelled in lap sitting.

When treats come out, Gertrude will sit up and beg. (We call this ‘sitting pretty”) We are not sure if this just came naturally to her or if someone taught her this.

Although she is smaller than most cats, she will chase them so she needs a home without cats or a home with a bad ass cat. (Nothing like a cat smack down to put a small dog in her place).
Gertrude has been great with all the other dogs in her foster home. She loves to snuggle on the sofa with her people. She also enjoys chewies.

Gertrude is a snorer but we promise she is not very loud.

Gertrude is spayed, micro chipped and current on her vaccinations. She has also had her teeth cleaned.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gertrude, 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.
