Lincoln's Story...
Well hello there! My name is Lincoln! You may have noticed my copper fur coat – it looks a lot like a shiny penny. Don’t worry, there’s more to me than good looks!

I’m only a year old, and I came into NBS as a very shy stray in need of some love and care. Luckily, the volunteers at NBS were pretty gratuitous with the kindness and the treats. Food is the way to one’s heart ya know! Since then, I’ve gotten much more confident . Oh – and I’m also doing very well with potty training. (I did say I love treats, right?)

Did I mention I’m also a gentleman? I’m very polite when I meet new people, other dogs and I don’t bother my foster mom’s cat either. Actually, my favorite toy is this stuffed kitten, because it doesn’t hiss when I play with him. Most importantly – I’m an excellent snuggler. A guy like me loves nothing more than to be close to you, and nose dive into the blankets for some cuddling. I like to make myself comfortable, and sometimes sleep with my legs in the air. My foster parents say I’m a very funny and expressive guy. I’m really hoping to find a home where I can be myself, learn new things and be loved for the very sweet boy I am.

Could your home be that for me? I’d sure like to meet you!

.Abraham Lincoln once said “"Whatever you are, be a good one.”

So I’m going to be a GOOD dog – actually, a GREAT DOG.

While I hope that you have fallen in love with me and will fill out an adoption application right away, I understand if I might not be the perfect pup for your family. Would you please help me by sharing my picture and information on your Facebook page, or e-mail to your friends and family members? I'm a great pup and I really deserve a loving family to give all of my love and puppy kisses to! Thank-you for your help!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lincoln, a Troy 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 Troy, or seeking a Chihuahua/Dachshund dog from a breeder in Troy.

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