Cricket & Dino's Story...

Dino is a Black and Tan and Cricket is a Silver Dapple. They are 7 years old and must be re-homed together because Cricket gets very sad without Dino by his side. Cricket wants to tell you a little about himself and Dino.

Hi, my name is Cricket! My pal, Dino, and I would love for you to take us BOTH home with you because we're a package deal! We do almost everything together. Both Dino and I LOVE LOVE LOVE to sit and snuggle with our foster mama—especially under a blanket. She thinks we’re silly because we try to climb up her chest so that we can gently lick her face and it makes her laugh and laugh. We enjoy playing with squeaky toys, chewing pizzles, and monitoring the yard through the front window.

Our foster mama has ramps in her house for us to use to get up and down off the couch, the back stairs, and the back deck. This is important for us because we’re dachshunds and we’re prone to back injuries, but even more important for me because I have arthritis and recently had a pinched nerve in my back that has now healed. If you don't have ramps, that's ok! You'll just need to make sure we don't jump on and off furniture. My brother and I get Flexadin once a day in our food to protect our joint cartilage. I have to be really careful that I don’t exercise too much or I might get hurt. Which I don’t mind, because I’d rather sleep anyway! Foster mama says that regular acupuncture and chiropractic will go a long way towards preventing me from ever having to get back surgery.

Another thing we love to do is eat. My foster mama says that I’m almost at a healthy weight and that Dino is already at a healthy weight. We’ve had a lot of changes lately. We came from a situation where we were neglected so we needed a bit of work with our house training. We now remember that we're not supposed to go in the house! We get along really well with foster mama’s dogs and other dogs, too. When we’re on walks, we need to learn not to bark at other dogs or other people, though, which we are working on. We are excellent walkers, though, and we don't pull on our leash at all!

Our vet says we're pretty healthy boys. He just gave us a tooth cleaning! We also had blood work and urinalyses that came back normal. All we need now is someone who knows how to take care of miniature dachshunds that can love us until the very end. Foster mama says we are very sweet souls who are laid back, well behaved, and ready to find true love.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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