Vessi's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Vessi's Story...
Vessi is another statistic but we are hoping she will get a 2nd chance and add to the happy ending stats as well. Dumped at the vet office, she is a little scared but sweet as pie. She is good with kids and is fosterd with a toddler, her foster mom says she LOVES to cuddle on the couch. She is only about 10 lbs and will be the best little dog you ever had! Please email adopt@thisisthedog.com to meet her and for an application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Vessi, a Homestead 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 Homestead, or seeking a Chihuahua/Dachshund dog from a breeder in Homestead.

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