Nickers's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Nickers's Story... -- They call me Nickers. There has been a lot of debate about “what” I may be, but the consensus is long haired dachshund and basset mix. What I can tell you is I am a very good dog.

I was found running with a canine pal about a month ago. Surprisingly, no one has come looking for me despite postings, so here I am looking for a new family to call my own. I was originally in a home with two young boys and did great with them, but they had too many dogs so my foster mom took me in.

I am housebroken; know how to use a doggie door and good with other dogs. I currently live with 9 others from 6.5 lbs to 55 lbs. I am a pretty mellow boy, I haven’t been too demanding of attention, but love to be close by and will soak in all the love you can give me. I like to sleep on the cool floor next to my foster mom’s bed. I love to go for walks and explore the world. I don’t bark much, but when I do I sound like a much bigger dog than what I am.

I would love to meet you and see if you may be the right new family for me.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Gilbert 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 Gilbert 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/Basset Hound breeders who help with Dachshund/Basset Hound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Gilbert paves the way for another one to be saved.
