Gatsby is a 2 year old Dachshund mix that is extremely active! He plays with everything and everybody. He is also very vocal and lets you know when he wants attention. Gatsby came from Louisiana and is heartworm positive, but he is on medication and will be just fine. He will need to be retested in 6 months, just as standard procedure. Gatsby is good with other dogs and children but is pretty curious about cats, so a home without cats will be best. Gatsby will need puppy training classes and learn to walk properly on leash, as he obviously never had a good home to teach him the basics. He will make someone who is patient and loving a very good companion.
