My story

*Please read through the full bio. Instructions on how to visit are included at the end*
My name is LADY! Allow me to share a bit about myself. I'm a 5-year-old, 16 lb, tan dachshund mix. I want all the attention in the world, and I love lap time! I would love to stay by you and my other half, Harley. I also love food, treats, and going outside! I love being around people and giving them lots of love. I am scared of storms and like to have a nice dark place to hide during them. I will lick you all over so you feel extra loved! I need to find a home that will allow my best friend, Harley, to come along and accept and treat his special needs. He has a grade three heart murmur and he is hard of hearing. He will need to go to the vet for regular checkups and will be on medication for life. 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; five dental extractions, dental cleaning, Veterinarian administered vaccinations, fecal analysis, flea/tick/heartworm prevention, and I was previously spayed. I have an adoption fee of $150 to help offset vetting costs. Hope to see you soon!

Why adoption is a great option

LADY, 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.
