Chrissy's Story...
Why Choose me?
I liked Chrissy right away. I was inside when a couple brought her in. They said she had followed some children home in the neighborhood. I asked to hold her, and she came to me right away. She is so sweet and was happy to be held. While we were in an interaction pen, I learned that Chrissy loves playing ball. She wasted no time in chasing it down. The tennis ball was a little big for her, so when she couldn’t pick it up, she pushed it forward, watched it roll, and was after it again. She actually managed to pick it up a few times, but I’ll have to look for one that’s more her size for the next time we play. After pictures and playing fetch, I enjoyed holding and petting Chrissy. She is a loving little girl. Come meet Chrissy today. She’d love to be in your arms or playing ball. It’s up to you!

Act quickly to adopt Chrissy. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chrissy, 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.
