Benny's Story...
Benny is a 5 year old, active and happy Dachshund. We rescued him from a shelter. He gets along with other dogs just great, plays and runs around all day long with them. He has learned about using a doggy door in his foster home and is doing pretty good about it. He is thin right now and we are trying to get some weight on him. He should weigh about 12-13 pounds when in good weight. Benny has a grade 2 heart murmur. Do not let that concern you, if one is going to have a heart murmur best to have a grade 1 or 2. He needs no medication or special diet for it. If he were a pup with a grade 2 the concerns would be there that it would worsen but Benny is 5 years old and two vets have agreed there is no concerns. He doesn't seem to have gotten much training in his original home but he also seems anxious to be with his human and probably would love some training classes. Great opportunity for bonding with your new canine best friend.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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