This is Carl, and he’s in a bit of a predicament. He was supposed to be euthanized last week, but the staff at Dallas Animal Services fell in love with him, so he’s getting a second chance. That’s the good news. Here’s the predicament: the shelter, which holds over 800 animals, is full, and with as many as 100 animals coming in daily, there’s simply no room for Carl. The adoption center staff could try and send him to a rescue group, but they really don’t want Carl to take up a space in rescue that could go to a dog that needs the special TLC only rescue can provide. So Carl’s only option is to get himself adopted, and quickly.
Carl is a 6 year old Dachshund/Chihuahua mix. He’s got a truly unique coloring, amazing ears, and so much charisma you can see it in his photo. It’s that charisma – the inner beauty - that caught the eye of the adoption center staff, and they’re not about to give up on Carl. They are convinced he’ll make a loyal companion for someone who needs a friend, or a devoted companion for a growing family. He’s great with other dogs, a bit timid, but super sweet and he loves to be held.
What more could you ask for? Well, how about a great dog AND a discount on the adoption fee? Carl’s adoption fee would normally be $85, but DAS is offering half-price adoptions during July so this adorable little guy can join you or your family for only $42 – which includes his neuter, vaccinations, and a microchip – if you act fast.
