Oliver's Story...
Oliver is a one to one-and-a-half year-old, eight pound chihuahua/dachshund mix who was severely neglected and found himself in danger of being euthanized at a very deadly Southern CA shelter. When he was rescued on 11/24/12, he had lost about 90% of his hair and had little to no chance of being adopted. We've had him examined and treated by our vet, neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. All he needs now is his forever home!

Oliver is outgoing, energetic, and absolutely loves playing fetch and tug-of-war. In addition, he seems to be fine with other dogs and we think his playful nature makes him a natural for kids. With his oversized ears and friendly, happy personality, Oliver will make the perfect addition to your family!

Oliver's adoption donation is $200. While the adoption donation does not come close to reimbursing us for his veterinary treatment, it does provide a promise that the adopter is capable of caring for him and all proceeds go directly toward helping our rescued dogs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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