SEX: Neutered Male
BREED: Dachshund mix
WEIGHT: 16.5 lbs
CAME TO ARF: Rescued from a puppy mill.
PERSONALITY: Wally spent all of his life living in a cage in a puppy mill. In his time here at ARF he has become an affectionate and loving dog who loves to cuddle and give kisses to his care givers who has become bonded with. He gets along very well with other dogs his size but can be a bit fearful with larger dogs. He is very active and can sometimes play a little roughly with other dogs. He would do best in a stable adult only home where he can have a chance to acclimate to his new life. Wally also has a bit of resource guarding and anyone wanting to adopt will need to work with our behaviorist on how best to acclimate Wally. With a bit of guidance and time, Wally will make a wonderful companion.
