My story

*Please read through the full bio. Instructions on how to visit are included at the end*
My name is HARLEY! Allow me to share a bit about myself. I'm a 6-year-old, 18 lb, tan dachshund mix. I am a good companion, and I love to be by your side. I love naps, my other half, Lady, food, and treats! I love being around people and giving them lots of love. I was diagnosed with a grade three heart murmur, so I am on medication for life. I need to find a home that will keep me on my medicine and allow my best friend, Lady, to come along. We have never been apart and it is obvious that we do not want to be. I have a hard time hearing because of my chronic ear infections. I need to go to the vet for regular checkups. I like other dogs but haven't been around cats. The Ark has a cage-free cat room, so they can test me with cats if needed. My previous owner could not keep me any longer due to her schedule. I am house and crate trained. I have received comprehensive vetting: Veterinary Physical and Dental examinations; Veterinarian administered vaccinations, fecal analysis, flea/tick/heartworm prevention, and neutering. I have an adoption fee of $150 to help offset vetting costs. Wonderful people from the community donated so I could have my adoption fee at this price to give me a better chance to go to a home with my Lady. Hope to see you soon!

Why adoption is a great option

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

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