found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, and good with dogs.
Meet Jack! He’s an incredibly handsome and dapper 9.5 year old senior gentleman. He has a beautiful black and tan coat with a subtle dapple pattern! Jack weighs in at a whopping 6.2 kg and has an absolutely adorable stocky stature!
Jack was dumped at a shelter by his previous owners when they thought he had a slipped disc. If it wasn’t for rescue, Jack would have had a very minimal chance of being adopted. He has since been seen by a CDR vet where he was neutered, got his chompers polished (even at almost 10 years of age, didn’t lose a single tooth) and had his back examined. It was the vet’s opinion that Jack does not have a slipped disc although he is weak in the rear. This will require ongoing monitoring and it is therefore extra important for Jack that he is not jumping off furniture or going up and down steps (but of course this applies to all doxies, right!)! His foster ma is working with him to build up his back end strength with daily walks and boy does he sure love it!
Dogs don’t come any sweeter than our dear Jack! At the mention of his name his tail takes flight and is constantly wagging. Jack is great with other dogs – big or small, he does well with cats, kids, rodents, men, woman…etc. He has yet to meet a stranger and while out on walks is eager to greet everyone who passes by. Jack is housetrained, leash trained and crate trained (although the crate is not needed for training purposes and Jack would much rather curl up on his doggy bed in the living room with his foster siblings while we’re out). He rarely barks, except when it’s eating time and like any typical dachshund gets so excited he can’t help but let one or two of his ‘old man’ barks out! He has shown no form of aggression except a tad bit of resource guarding over his favourite bone but is happy to share his food or toys with humans and doggy friends. He thoroughly enjoys his walks and keeps up with the best of them. Jack sleeps through the night on his own dog bed in his foster parent’s room and spends the day chilling with his foster sibs while the humans are at work. He has settled into our routine wonderfully – for the first couple of days he would whine and bark minimally when we left in the morning, this has almost completely stopped.
I can’t say enough about senior dogs – they are so cool! Jack is as nice, handsome, smart and funny as they come! Could you provide a loving home for him to retire in?
