Slim is an adorable and very playful, 18-week-old 'Chiweenie' puppy... a Dachshund and Chihuahua mix. He's a little guy, only weighing 7.5-lbs. (on 5/31/16) and small in stature with a long body and build of a dachshund. His ears and face are like that of a Chihuahua. His coat is short and glossy, with some brown on his legs.

Slim is an affectionate and playful little pup who loves to play 'fetch'. When introduced to a new environment he a little shy, but warm up quickly.

Slim is at first cautious around larger dogs, and very people-oriented. He is a strong and athletic pup, and a fast, agile runner and jumper for being such a little guy. Slim is crate trained, and is working on his house training, walking on a leash and clicker training.

Slim has been neutered and microchipped, had his Rabies vaccine and 3 rounds of DHP/Parvo vaccine, has been dewormed, and started on Heartworm prevention.

Slim's adoption fee is $200.00.

Forever Home Canine Rescue offers a 3-week trial period with all our adoptions, just to be sure that the pet is a good match for the adoptive family. The adoption fee is refunded if the adoption does not work out within the trial period. We want to be sure that each of our pets will have the perfect 'forever' home!

Forever Home Canine Rescue adopts out-of-state, but we never 'ship' or 'transport' our pets. An approved adopter must come to North Carolina to meet their new canine companion and then take him/her back home with them.

If you are interested in Slim and think he may be your ideal canine companion, please visit our website at for information on our adoption process and to download an application, or you may e-mail us at for additional information, or to request an application.
