While we do not always have puppies available for adoption, from time to time we do take in an abandoned litter or a pregnant mother. DDRTX maintains strict provisions regarding the adoption of puppies. We DO NOT allow puppies to go to adopters until they are 3 months old OR have had 3 sets of their first puppy shots. In addition, we require a stringent Puppy Provisions Contract be signed and the adoption fee paid in full before a puppy goes to the home.
Our Puppy Provisions are:
1.) The puppy still belongs to Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas (DDRTX) until the puppy has been spayed/neutered
2.) At 5-6 months old the puppy will be returned to DDRTX to be spayed/neutered by a DDRTX veterinarian
3.) The puppy will receive all vaccinations required by DDRTX by a DDRTX-approved veterinarian
4.) The adopter will provide a safe, enriching, and loving environment
5.) ANY exceptions to this agreement must be in writing and approved by the Executive Director
Please Note: puppies take a lot of time and effort. They demand a lot of attention during their first year of life in order to develop a happy, well-balanced dog and an equally-pleased owner—including house training, learning good manners, basic obedience skills, and mind-enriching playtime and activities. Puppies provide many laughs and lots of fun, but they also require a LOT of patience and energy. PLEASE be sure that you have the extra time, energy, patience, toys, and cleaning supplies necessary before you bring a puppy into your life. If you do feel you have what it takes to bring a puppy into your home, please indicate that you are interested in a puppy when filling out the adoption application form.
