found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Hi: My legal name is NoNo but my foster mom calls me Scarlett. She didn't think NoNo would work very well for training purposes because sometimes she has to tell me no and then I would get confused. I like my new name and I come if you call me.
I am a long-haired red female with black highlights. I'm 6 years old and lived in a puppy mill before I discovered the good life in a home. I'm sweet but timid, however I’m gaining more and more confidence everyday! Most of the time I just submit by rolling over for a belly rub when foster mom goes to pick me up. I weigh 6.5 pounds and likely need to gain about half a pound. Foster mom says it might be because I let the resident dog share my food bowl – but what can I say, I am just a nice gal!
I like to run and play, even in the snow. I know come, sit and stay and I walk well on a leash. My house training is a work in progress. I live with another foster doxie and the resident dog plus 5 cats. I just ignore the cats. One of them even tried to head butt me and I still just ignored her. Sometimes I'll share my crate with the resident doggie. At the dog park I tell off big dogs that are being too friendly and I try to hide behind my foster mom. Sometimes I am so close to my foster mom that she can't see me.
I'm learning what toys are but haven't played with them much yet. I like to give kisses and I'm learning to cuddle. I prefer to sleep in the big bed but I'll also sleep in my crate. I sleep in my crate while my foster mom is out. I tend to bark when she comes home. I'll bark at strangers in the house but I stop before the resident dog stops. Sometimes I bark at strangers going by.
I have had some troubles with my back, like most doxies do, but after crate rest, some laser acupuncture and medication, I am back to my normal self! This may re-occur in the future so my forever home needs to be mindful of this! Remember, this could happen to any dachshund at any time, so please don’t let that deter you from considering me as your new forever friend!
