Ben's Story...
Ben is a 3 year old leggy Daschund mix. Ben is a super sweet and VERY mellow little guy (13 lbs). He loves to sleep on the top of the couch cushion backs or on your lap. At night he voluntarily snuggles into his crate or would be happy to join you on the bed. He is great with kids and very tolerant of little kid play. Not yappy or nippy at all. He is sometimes ok with other pets depending on the animal. He loves to be out with you and is a well behaved young man, though interactions with other dogs need to be closely observed. He's not a barker or a chewer. Just a sweet guy looking for a lap and love. He is a good listener, but would benefit from some basic training.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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