Slick's Info...

Slick's Story...

Personality

I am an affectionate cuddly pup who is frisky and fun!  I enjoy sitting in laps and I love to burrow in and under blankets.  I fetch, tug, wrestle and enjoy making everyone smile with my silly antics.  I am an expert at face-cleaning and wearing stylish clothes.

Socialization

Does the dog like other pets?

One of my favorite pastimes is to rough house with my foster brother, a Pekinese.  I get along really well with my large and small foster sibilings, as well as with the normally dog-hating cat that lives in my foster home too.  I also live with two Umbrella Cockatoos and pretty much ignore them unless they are throwing me food!

Does the dog like children?

I do best with older children and teens since I’m a little guy.  I would not like to be picked up and squeezed by little kids.  

General Socialization Notes

Once I get to know someone, you can’t keep me off their lap!  But, I am fearful of strangers (especially men) when they first come into my house or my space, and I let you know I’m afraid by barking at them.  However, I’m pretty easily won over by treats from strangers, and can make friends quickly if someone is patient and understanding of my fears…and of course, feeds me yumminess...

Favorite Toys

I love to play with all sorts of toys:  stuffed animals, tug toys, balls, and I LOVE stuffed Kongs and any other sort of project food/puzzle toys.

Forever Home

I am looking for a good buddy or family that has an empty lap and an open heart.  I’d love to have one or more canine or feline siblings.  I have lots of energy to romp and play, but also want exclusive cuddle time.  I love to go on car rides and can be loose or crated in a car, since I am crate trained as well.

Special Considerations

I have a very sensitive tummy and very sensitive skin.  I do need to be on a special diet and have specific considerations for my skin allergies as well.  My foster family will be happy to discuss all of the intricate details with you when you apply on me!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Slick, a Colorado Springs Dachshund/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund/Chihuahua for sale in Colorado Springs, or seeking a Dachshund/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Colorado Springs.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Colorado Springs already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Colorado Springs breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dachshund/Chihuahua breeders who help with Dachshund/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Colorado Springs paves the way for another one to be saved.
