Meet Gilligan! Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue's Available 13 year old Dog 2017

Looking to adopt a great Senior Dachshund? 
Gillian may be 13 years old, but he's got a lot of life in him.  Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue has just taken in this sweet boy, as his family moved into a place that doesn't allow dogs.
Meet Gilligan, a very active senior boy who wants to be your snuggle buddy.  Gilligan does not act his age.  He loves to go on walks, meander in the yard and play with toys.  Gilligan is a talker; he will let you know when he wants attention and a belly rub.  He has lived with other dachshunds and is friendly to other small dogs he meets on his walks.  Gilligan is not so sure about the big dogs, and we don’t know how he reacts to cats.  He’s happy to meet new humans and he grew up with teenagers.

Gilligan is housebroken, but he does mark inside so he’s being retrained with a belly band.  He’s heart worm negative, up-to-date on his shots and he will soon be neutered and receive a much needed dental cleaning.  Gilligan is in great shape.  He’s a trim 12.5 pounds and has no trouble getting around or jumping onto the couch to be next to you – not that we encourage that!  Gilligan isn’t crate trained and prefers to sleep on the couch at night.  We are training him to sleep in a cozy dog bed instead.

Gilligan’s family lost their home and could not keep him.  He has many years of love and play left to give.  Gilligan would love to be your forever companion.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
