My story

Mr. Fredricksen is ready to be your new work from home buddy! He loves sitting in your lap and being near you while you work, especially if you give him scritch scratches and belly rubs. He’ll also let you know when he wants attention and when he hears outside noises. He’s very well house trained and doesn’t chew or bite on anything (such as cables, socks, plants, etc). Mr. Fredricksen loves to nap on the couch and in the sun.

Mr. Fredricksen loves to take leisurely walks where he can sniff around and mark his territory. When he’s ready for you to play with him, he enjoys playing tug, rolling in the grass, and chasing after squeaky balls (his favorite toy!) in short bursts. With recall training, he’s good off leash.

Mr. Fredricksen would do best in a home without children or other animals. He likes to be near his humans all the time, and will excitedly follow you from room to room. He has separation anxiety, but has been rapidly improving with training.

Why adoption is a great option

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

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