HIS STORY: Ferrante, along with his buddy Teicher, was found tied to a fence along with a bag of dog food. Clearly, the two dogs had been abandoned.Ferrante is a 1 year old black and tan standard smooth male. He is a sweet, playful and fun dog. He will need a home where there is another dog playmate and also where there is a family willing to play with him and walk him regularly. He was basically healthy when he arrived and needed only routine vet work. From what we have seen, we thank Ferrante will do well with families with younger children, provided that the families follow common-sense dog/child supervision rules and do not leave a young children and a dog along together. Ferrante would also be fine in an all adult home. Whoever ends up with Ferrante as a family member will be most fortunate. Maybe it's your family! <br/><br/> Can you give Ferrante a loving, permanent home with lots of attention? If so, read the rest of the information below and then contact us for an adoption application. Please be aware that our adoption applications are sent out by postal mail only, and are not sent by e-mail nor are they available on-line. Before you contact us for an application, please be sure you take some time to read and learn about this breed. Dachshunds are personable and intelligent; however they take extra time and patience to housetrain and it is important to know this before you apply to adopt. There are many good books about Dachshunds currently available. Time spent reading one or two of them is well worth it.
ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS: In order to be considered for adoption through DFW Dachshund Rescue Foundation, you must: Be over 21 years of age and have verifiable identification to that effect. Be able to verify that you may have a pet where you live. Live within the immediate Dallas/Fort Worth area. We appreciate your understanding and hope that, if you live outside this area, you will consider adopting a pet from a rescue group that services your particular geographic area. Be prepared to make a donation to our rescue efforts of $250. Be willing to fill out an adoption application, the entire contents of which will be verified upon receipt. Be aware that vet references will be verified to confirm current pets are altered, up to date on vaccinations as well as being annually tested for heartworms and regularly taking heartworm preventative. Have a complete, secure, and safely fenced yard. Be prepared to have a home visit from one of the rescue foundation members as part of the screening process to adopt this dog. During the home visit, our representative will do a brief temperament evaluation of all current dogs in the household. We are unable to adopt to homes where any current dogs exhibit "people-aggressive" or "dog-aggressive" behaviors during the home visit. In addition, while we do not preclude adopters who currently own large breed dogs, due to size differential and a dachshund's predisposition to spinal injuries, we are also not able to adopt to homes when the board determines there may be potential for injury to the dachshund. This is to ensure a safe match for our rescued dachshunds. Understand that DFW Dachshund Rescue Foundation has the right to deny any application.
