Flora's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Flora's Story...
Flora and her son Chip belonged to an elderly couple, one of whom had to go into a nursing home so the other turned them in to the local pound. A lady on welfare with four rowdy kids took them from pound and kept them 6 months without ever letting them go outside and not feeding them much. This lady apparently got tired of them and offered them to her neighbor who jumped at the chance to get these two to a better place. She contacted Granddogs and we agreed to take them. When they arrived, they were so thin you could count every vertebrae. So sad!They have been in rescue two weeks now and are doing great, getting fat and sassy and now available for adoption as a bonded pair. Flora is 5 years old and Chip is about a year old

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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