GUEST DOG - Stripe's Story...
Stripe is a guest dog for DREAM, meaning we are assisting his current home in finding him a forever home. A good Samaritan, Karen, took Stripe in after learning of some pretty rough living conditions including untreated IVDD, & ongoing crate confinement for months on end. Karen took him in not b/c she needed another dog, but b/c he was facing being taken to animal control & she couldn't bare that thought, especially with his needs at the time. Karen has treated his medical needs & nursed him back to the best of health. This therapy included chiropractic care while he recovered from the IVDD consequences. She's also had him neutered & brought up to date on all his shots. Now her goal is to find him the home he so rightfully deserves, where he will be treasured for the rest of his life.

She says this about him...."Stripe is estimated to be ~7 yrs old and is a wire haired dachshund. He has just a hint of his injury left as he sometimes prefers bunny-hopping versus walking. He does have some incontinence due to his IVDD injury and poop occasionally falls out of him unexpectedly. He can control his urine but does pee in my house, because I have dogs that are pad-trained. I was told that he was house-broken before his injury and am sure that he can be retrained. He is a happy, loving boy that loves walks and car rides. He tries to play with my other dogs, but they are a bit too old for that now. He is a hunter of chipmunks but does not dig. His attitude toward cats is unknown but he is friendly toward dogs and humans. Stripe is beautiful and gets attention everywhere he goes. He even won "Best in Show" at GA Dachshund races this year. "

If you are interested in adopting Stripe, please contact Karen at There is a rehoming fee, but Stripe 's adoption fee is less than his significant veterinary costs incurred. Stripe will go to his new home neutered, heartworm tested, and up to date on vaccinations.

DREAM is an all-volunteer rescue group, and we focus on the Atlanta, North Georgia and Savannah area. Because we are all volunteers, we can consider applications only within an hour of these areas. DREAM does not recommend purebred dachshunds for families with children under 5, or families planning to have children during the dog's lifetime. Dachshunds are often not patient with little kids, and kids can accidentally hurt a doxies's back.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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