ALEXIS, N.C. – Tri-County Animal Rescue has this 7-month-old Dachshund mix named Winnie as our Pet of the Week. This little girl weighs about 30 pounds. Winnie is still a puppy so she is overflowing with energy. She would be ideal with another active dog. Winnie is good with people. She is working on the house-training thing but still needs some help. Winnie is spayed, current on vaccines and micro-chipped. Please come meet this little girl this Friday and Saturday.
Dachshunds are wonderful dogs and make terrific companions, but they are not for everyone. As with all dog breeds, individual dogs have their own personalities, but there some traits that are very common throughout the breed. Many have a stubborn, independent nature. Effective training is a must for all dogs, including dachshunds.
Dachshunds love to burrow - they like to tunnel under bed covers and pillows. They love the company of other dachshunds, which is why you see so many dachshund pairs. They like to curl up and sleep together, with their heads on each other’s backs. They are usually very physically affectionate dogs - they like to snuggle and kiss and be scratched and have their bellies rubbed.
The Tri-County Animal Rescue BIG DOG Pet of the Week is this beautiful American Pit Bull Terrier named Maggie Adira. She is about 7-years-old and weighs 50+ pounds. Maggie Adira is great with all people. She loves other dogs too. She is good inside and loves to cuddle on the couch. She is spayed, current on vaccines and micro-chipped. Please give this sweet girl a chance to become part of your family! She will be looking for you this weekend.
If you are looking for an addition to your family, please come out and meet our pets this weekend. We have many available pets at the Gastonia PetSmart located at 3698 East Franklin Boulevard this Friday from 6-9 p.m. and Saturday noon to 6 p.m. About Tri-County Animal Rescue --- Tri-County Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization serving Lincoln, Gaston and other surrounding counties.
