Do you love food and napping? Me too! I am a very sweet Dachshund / Terrier mix looking for a quiet home where I will be cherished. I am just 10 years young, and have been spayed. I am up to date on my shots. I weigh 19 pounds.
I can be adopted on my own, but why not double the devotion and offer my sister, Babs, a home along with me? We’re good friends and a perfectly matched set!
I am really good at offering quiet devotion to my owners. I may not be the most energetic dog, but I have a way of making my owners feel very special. I am a great companion, particularly if sedentary activities are your thing. I have been known to surprise my owners by chasing the odd squirrel, but mostly I am content to play with my stuffed animals, enjoy cheese snacks, and nap in a quiet, comfortable corner of the room.
I would be the perfect match for senior or disabled dog lovers with mobility issues. I am good with kids, so I would welcome visits from your grandchildren!
My owners are a young couple who recently began growing their family. With a 2 year old toddler, a baby on the way, and my Mom working long hours and travelling for work, it’s just not a very dog-friendly life. I would much prefer a quiet home with folks who have lots of time to spend with me. I’m getting a little older, and being around the noise and commotion of raising small children is not for me.
I have some minor health issues that are well controlled with medication. My owners are willing to help bear the costs of my treatment and provide all veterinary records. I have been lovingly raised and very well cared for.
If you are missing that special kind of devotion that only a sweet dog like me can provide, please offer me a loving home today. I can’t wait to meet you and charm my way into your heart and home.
Love and licks,
