Dachshunds are one of Americans favorite breeds. With their long bodies, short little legs and tenacious personalities we totally understand the obsession. It’s not often we have a pure bread Doxie in rescue. We often have adorable Doxie mixes that are always snapped right up by happy adopters but Stevie absolutely appears to be a full bred standard dachshund! This fun girl is ALL Doxie!!! Incredibly smart and super duper sweet Stevie is a lover of life. Whatever she is doing she’s going to do it 100%. There’s no halfway she’s going to give it her all and she’s a persistent little girl. She plays hard and then she sleeps hard there’s no inbetween. With her “all in or nothing” personality she loves big too! She loves people! Old, young, big, small she loves them all. She loves dogs of all shapes and sizes and she really hopes they all love her too. If they don’t she just might pester them in hopes they do.
Can you believe Stevie found herself with her two puppies at our city shelter? It always amazes us what people abandon and yes full bred dogs are often included in those sitting in our shelters. One of her puppies was adopted while at the shelter but she and her other puppy Nick lingered. We knew we could find both their perfect families so they joined our foster crew.
Stevie has been living it up in her foster home. She’s a very happy good girl who needs just the right home. Her perfect adoptive home would have a love of the breed. It would understand that most doxies have some prey drive, remember they were bred to hunt badgers and similarly sized animals, so small critters including cats should not be in the home or should be kept completely separate. It should be a fun and active home that doesn’t mind doggie play antics. Stevie’s perfect canine pals will share her love of play and be tolerant of her persistence to generate those play sessions. She’d totally love some human kiddos to call her own and last but not least it should have all the warm comfy spots she can curl up in once playtime is done. If you love doxies and love their happy pushy energy Stevie just might be the pup for you.
Here’s what you need to know about adopting a cat or dog from Marley's Mutts:
Each adoptable pet will be introduced on Facebook
Each pet will have its own profile here on the website
All pets will be spayed or neutered
All pets will be micro-chipped and shots will be up-to-date
Each pet has their own application to complete—make sure you use the right one (linked from their bio)
It’s important to us that each pet goes not just to a great home but to the “right” home. Our foster parents work with each pet to get to know them and their needs.
We try hard to list all of the pertinent info about each pet on the site so you can choose the pet that will fit with your family/lifestyle. If you don’t see a specific pet on the site, he/she is not ready for adoption. Please be patient and wait until the bio is listed. We don’t decide on a “first come, first served” basis but rather on a “who’s the very best fit.” So, don’t panic.
It’s not a quick process. We receive dozens of applications for each pet so please be patient. If you’re shortlisted you’ll be contacted as soon as possible.
If selected to meet one of our pets and you currently have pets, you’ll be asked to do an in-person pet intro; we don’t do the long-distance adoption thing. If you live out of town, plan a fun road trip to meet the pet in person.
Don’t be discouraged if your application is not selected. Remember, we get a lot of them! Trust us, the best fit for you is coming.
If you’re lucky and you do adopt a super amazing pet from Marley’s Mutts, don’t ever hesitate to reach out to us for training, medication, or behavior questions. We’re here for you, and your pet.
