ALEXIS, N.C. – Tri-County Animal Rescue Pet of the Week is this 4-year-old Dachshund mix named Trevor. He weighs about 13 pounds. Trevor plays well with other dogs, snuggles under the blankets, and has the typical Dachshund stubborn streak. He has short hair so a bath and brushing will keep him looking fresh all the time. Trevor has been neutered, is current on vaccines and micro-chipped. He will be looking for you this weekend!
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.
BIG DOG Pet of the Week
Tri-County Animal Rescue BIG DOG Pet of the Week is this beautiful Boxer/Great Dane mix named Percy Sledge. Percy is 1-year-old and weighs about 65 pounds. He is still growing and may top out around 75-80 pounds (look at those feet). He plays well with dogs he knows. Percy is anxious at first with new people but LOVES you once he accepts you as his. He has had lots of training. Percy is house trained, crate trained, command trained, walks lovely on the leash, and much more. He has short hair so a bath and brushing will keep him looking fresh all the time. Percy is neutered, current on vaccines, microchipped and heartworm negative. He will be looking for you this weekend!
Anyone who wants a Great Dane must be willing to accommodate this dog's great size. A Great Dane will eat far larger quantities of food than a small dog, so feeding is going to cost a lot more for a Great Dane than, say, for a tiny Chihuahua. A Great Dane must have room to move around and exercise, especially when he is young. Anyone wanting to keep a Great Dane in the city must be prepared to take the dog out for long, daily walks. Great Danes are considered gentle giants. They are moderately playful, affectionate and good with children. They will guard their home. Great Danes generally get along with other animals, particularly if raised with them.
Please come out to our adoption event this weekend. If you are looking for an addition to your family, come out and meet our pets. We have many available pets at the Gastonia PetSmart located at 3698 East Franklin Boulevard this Saturday noon to 6 p.m.
