Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund (short coat)
Weight: 5.75 lbs and growing - we expect Roxanne will be between 25-35 pounds when full grown
Height: 6 in
Estimated Birthdate: 4/19/2022
Fence Needed: No
Location: Foster Home in Charleston, SC
Reason for being in rescue: Born into rescue
Special Needs: Roxanne is a young, small puppy that is current on vaccines for her age. Roxanne is not spayed and will not be spayed prior to adoption. You will be required to sign a contract confirming your commitment to spaying her at your expense within 12 months. Roxanne's mom Marci is a dachshund/chihuahua/pit bull mix. Dad is completely unknown. We did DNA testing on one puppy and the results confirmed chihuahua, dachshund and pit bull. Roxanne will be available for adoption on June 22, 2022. We are accepting applications to adopt now.
What kind of home would be best for me: Roxanne is a young puppy looking for an active home. She requires a home with another active dog for socialization and play. She requires a home where someone is either home during the day (work from home, home school, etc.) or can provide breaks throughout the day. She is a baby and needs breaks and frequent, consistent potty times.
Thank you for carefully considering the addition of a puppy to your family. Puppies can be a joyous experience, but they can also be a tremendous amount of work. Since our goal is to place each of our dogs in forever homes, we are especially cautious with puppies. We like to stress 3 major things when considering a puppy vs. an adult dog: 1) many adult dogs are well bred, well trained dogs who find themselves in rescue through no fault of their own, 2) adult dogs are eager to share their love and bond with their new family, and 3) puppies will always require far more time, energy, and training than an adult dog.
Our ideal puppy adopters are:
-experienced dog owners with a solid record of excellent vet care of their previous pets
-scheduled away from home for no more than 4 hours per day OR have another canine companion already in the home
-stay at home type of people (work at home, home schoolers, retired, etc)
What is my personality like: Roxanne was born into rescue. Mama Darci was welcomed into rescue heavily pregnant. She is a dachshund/chihuahua/pit bull mix. Dad is completely unknown, but DNA testing confirmed these puppies are a mix of chihuahua, dachshund, and pit bull.
Roxanne - what a girl! Feisty, fun, bouncy, pouncy, she’s all that and more! Roxanne will keep you on your toes for sure! Currently 5.75 pounds, she’s longish hair and so much fun! She needs a fur buddy to show her the way.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
Tips and Tidbits: Roxanne was born on 4/19/2022
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.
