This is a great dog so please give Charlie a chance and read his bio through before passing him over! Charlie is a great dog that is easy to manage and well-trained. He is a five-year-old Chihuahua/Dachshund mix (Chiweenie) rescued from the community (and since little dogs can easily live to be 15-16, or in some cases even older, we still consider him to be a young dog). He has beautiful soulful eyes typical of most Dachshunds, a beautiful brindle coat, and a very curled tail and a cute under-bite. He weighs 12.5 lbs. Charlie adapts very quickly to any new environment. He is friendly to all new people he meets. He is loving and sweet, good natured and a well-balanced dog with no issues, phobias or separation anxiety. Charlie is good with all dogs, big and small and lived in a home with cats. He has also been around smaller kids and is fine. Charlie is crate-trained, potty-trained, and knows how to use the dog door. He walks very well on leash and rides well in the car. He is not nippy or barky and does not destroy things in the house. He can be playful with other dogs if other dogs are playful. A plus is that he really does not shed much.
Charlie was given up by his owner because of a downward spiral in her life that left Charlie without anyone to care for him. We paid for him to have a costly dental cleaning under anesthesia, so his teeth are great and he will not need another dental for a while. Charlie is up-to-date on all shots, including rabies, treated for fleas with Nexguard, had his toenails trimmed, is micro-chipped, and was already neutered when we acquired him.
