Cricket's Story...
Have you ever seen anything cuter? This is six month old Cricket, a standard dachshund. She was brought into a Central California shelter in October and immediately went home with her foster mom. Her foster mom named her Cricket, because she leaps about like a cricket would to.

Cricket is a typical puppy and loves to play. Her favorite past times are playing tug-o-war or wrestling with either of the two willing doxies in her foster home. Cricket is in a foster home with seven other doxies, and she does great with all of them. Another favorite past time is lying in someone’s lap while they watch TV. Cricket also loves the attention of the three teenagers that live in her foster home.

Cricket is a puppy which means that she has tons of energy. It also means she will chew whatever is in her path whether appropriate or not. Cricket is crate trained, and is getting a crash course in potty training, but because she is a puppy she will need her adoptive people to keep her on a schedule to reinforce her new good potty habits. Cricket is safe with children over 8 years old, but she has a very strong prey-drive and will not be safe with cats or other small critters, i.e. bunnies, rodents, birds, or reptiles.

Cricket is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on her vaccinations.
The ideal home for Cricket will have the following qualifications:
• Someone at home most of the day, stay-at-home moms, or folks who work from home.
• Another comparable-sized dog for play and companionship.
• A very secure INDOOR place for the puppy to be when no one is at home.
• Applicants must be between 25 and 65 years of age.
• No infants or toddlers, please, but we will consider families with children over 8 years old.
• Previous dachshund experience is a plus but not absolutely essential.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cricket, a San Jose Dachshund puppy 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 puppy 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.
