What kind of home would be best for me? We are seeking a home with an experienced dog owner and someone who is home more than they're away.
What is my personality like? Unlike your other typical Dachshunds I'm pretty laid back and quiet. I can keep myself busy all day sniffing every corner of space there is! I'm not very athletic but I love to go for slow strolls through new places so I can sniff everything out. What can I say? I'm curious! I can be affectionate and love a good back scratch here and there but I'm not needy at all. I get along just fine with all dogs and even cats. I don't know any basic commands but I do know how to give sad puppy eyes for my favorite soft treats. I'm just an easy going old man looking for a family to live the rest of my life with.
How do I act when I meet new people? Friendly.
Tips and Tidbits: One day my owner had to make the decision to take me to the shelter because they just could not care for me any longer.. I'm looking forward to someone that can give me a family that won't let me go.
House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
