Dachshund / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat) : : Male (neutered) : : Young : : Medium
Meet Poe! This adorable low-rider boy is all love! He loves everyone he meets, gets along fabulously with kids and toddlers, other dogs and even cats! He is a perfect medium size and he absolutely thinks he is a lap dog, and he is small enough (33 lbs) that he doesn't have trouble fitting on your lap. We aren't really sure of his breed - our vet thinks he is a dachshund /lab mix, or "dachsador". He has the short legs, long body and coloring of a dachshund, the ears and head of a lab. What we are sure of is that he is sweet as pie! He wiggles his whole body when he sees you and wants nothing more than to give you kisses and have you pet him. He is calm and easy going, and he does not bark much at all despite his breeds tendency to do so! He loves car rides and going for walks and walks well on a leash. He and Finn were rescued locally from a family who was evicted from their house and went to a homeless shelter, leaving these boys tied to a tree in the bitter cold with no food or water and left to fend for themselves. Thankfully some kind neighbors contacted us and we were happy to take them in to our program. Poe and Finn get along well, but definitely do not need to be adopted together. They are scheduled to be neutered on Jan 15th and will be ready for adoption shortly afterwards! They will be up to date on all vaccinations, microchipped, on heart worm preventative, flea/tick preventative and neutered. If you are interested in adopting, we ask that you submit an application at www.DelawarePetRescue.org/forms
Adoption Fee: $200.
*This website is updated daily. If the animal you are interested in is listed as "available for adoption", that means they are still in DPR's care.
