Heidi's Story...
This is precious little Heidi. We believe she is a Dachshund mix. She is approximately 9 or 10 months old, weighs around 9 lbs and probably won't get much larger. We do not know this baby’s background as Heidi was abandoned at a spay/neuter clinic and taken in by the staff there who cared for her a couple of days. She was then brought to her foster home and has very quickly become a part of the family. She is very sweet and gentle and an absolute cuddle bug and lap dog. She is very playful and likes to wrestle and play with other dogs and especially loves to just lie in your lap and sleeps in the bed with her foster mommy all night without a peep. Heidi is crate trained; leash trained and almost completely housetrained. She goes outside very well when given plenty of opportunity but sometimes forgets so still does have an occasional accident but she is learning. She is such a love bug and would do well in a home with other pets and/or children. She can be a bit shy sometimes but loves everyone and everyone falls in love with her. Heidi is vaccinated, heartworm negative and spayed. Anyone would be so very blessed and lucky to have this precious little girl in their life. Consider snatching this baby up as she is the perfect family or companion dog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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