I am looking for a new home for my female dachshund.
My family and I will be moving and can not take her with us, because the home we are moving into already has 3 dogs and they dont get along with other dogs.
She is UTD on shots, Not fixed or micro chipped, Comes with papers from CKC. Leash, collar, treats, toys, and crate. mostly house trained, knows how to use a puppy pad.
we are asking 300 for her, but we are willing to neg. a little bit on that price. if you are interested you can comment here or send a message to me.
and please serious inquiries only. and i dont need the comments from people about how getting a dog is a life time thing. We dont want to get rid of her but we dont really have a choice, i would rather see her go to a family that can take care of her, then end up in shelter and never find a home.
that is one of the other options that we have thought about but that is one of the last things we want to do, we are trying to find her a new forever home before we send her to any type of shelter or rescue group. we would really love to keep her but we just cant take her with us to my in-laws home. their dogs act like a wolf pack and will not except any new dogs into the home.
^^^ agreed. Someone posted not to long ago about how they gave their puppy away for free and then the person went around and put the puppy on pys for cash. I think if, God forbid you have to rehome your pet, for whatever reason, a rehoming fee is justified but I personally think that 300 as a rehoming fee is too high.
Just because you ask for a rehoming fee doesn't mean the person isn't going to try and sell it for more or be a good home for the dog. Also just because you don't ask for a rehoming fee doesn't mean the person will turn around and sell the dog. Not every person is shady.
If you want her to go to a good home, don't charge people money! Thats outrageous! It's not something you should make a profit off of...
I can't believe you'd take an animal to a shelter, I'd change my living situation to keep my two dogs, they're like my children!
I would love to keep her and i understand that changing our situation would be great if that was something that we could do but we cant. so until you know the persons situation i would say dont give me any type of shit for trying to find her a new home. and we are not looking to make a profit! go to puppyfinder.com and type in miniature dachshund, then go and look up ones that have papers and have champion blood line, and then you go ahead and pay less then 500 or more with getting them shipped to you, i am not looking to get a profit from trying to find my dog a new home, i am looking for someone who is willing to put the investment out there for a puppy and for someone who understands the breed, I have meet every single one of the families that are interested in her and have asked a ton of questions, i am not looking to just give her to any person. and the price of 300 is NOT the final price we are will to go lower but that is what we started out asking for her.
and we did finally find a family for her.
and i want to say thank you to shixxlemydixxle cause they had to say was spot on with how we were thinking and all that she came with in long run would most likely be more then that if u were to go out on ur own to get one from a breeder and then go to the store to get everything.
I am glad you were able to find her a new home. It's reassuring to know you care so much about your dog that you would interview multiple families before choosing who to sell her to. I can understand being forced into a less than ideal living situation where you have to give up your pets. Sometimes situations out of your control forces you to do things you'd never thought you would have to do. (A good example would be my neighbors were transferred to Okinawa. They couldn't take their dog Miss Piggy because she is a French Bulldog and that breed is one that is not allowed on planes. Luckily they had a family member to look after her till they get back in 3 years.) At least now you can rest easy knowing you did everything in your power to make sure she went to a good home.
Don't a lot of breeders take back there digs if the owners can't keep them for whatever reason. I know my breeders and my friends that are breeders have a contract with all their puppy owners that if they can't keep the dog they have to return the dog to them.
we tried to get in touch with the breeder, she is an elderly lady and have not heard back from her, we never had to sign a contract, i know that when we got our puppy it was the last litter she was going to ever have cause she was getting older and she was going to be giving the stud and the female to her children and they didnt want to cont. with the breeding of the dogs. I dont know if she is still alive or if something happened i have sent several emails and left a couple messages. so i am waiting on hearing back from her but at the same time, i am going to give all that information to the new family as well. it was one of the first things that we did was call and email the breeder but it has been weeks since we have heard anything back, so this was the next option
