I just want to set the record straight! I have 1 tooth and I'm the toughest dog on the block! My foster mom thinks I shouldn't tell people I'm a street dog because she says I'm sweet and so silly! I guess I should also mention I don't see or hear very well. But that doesn't stop me from being a guard dog with the other dachshunds in the house!
My foster mom is pretty cool but my favorite human is my foster dad! There aren't kids in the house but I think I'd get along with older kids who understand my hearing and sight aren't great. And I really do only have one tooth! However, eating kibble is no trouble for me and I can eat crunchy cookies as long as they get broken into smaller pieces!
I love, love, LOVE sleeping in my dog bed. I do ok in my kennel at night but I'd be happier in the big bed with you or in my bed on the floor. With my limited sight, I can't always find the door to tell you when I need to potty. So at first I may have some accidents. But if you have patience and allow me to learn my surroundings, I'm actually a really good senior ween!!!
So if you're ready for the definition of "lap dog" then come and take me home!!!
