Chance is a 6-8 month old Dachshund mix puppy that was a found stray whereby the owner could not be located. Chance weighs about 11 lbs. and is a short-haired long bodied Dachshund mix with a reddish blond coat and soulful eyes. He is truly your typical happy puppy who loves life and everything that breaths. Chance lives to play - his life’s joy is to play with other dogs; he has played with larger dogs, but he really gets going with dogs his own size. He is also very people-oriented, enjoying human contact for loving and cuddle time. Chance is being crate-trained at the rescue and he is doing well. He is also doing well with potty training, but we walk him out regularly. One nice thing is that he always handles his business quickly.
Typical to many puppies, Chance is cautious when first meeting new people, but as soon as he recognizes kindness, he is right there. He enjoys car rides but is squirmy. A transport carrier is probably best. He walks pretty well on the leash considering he has had no formal training; he is directional, only pulling a little bit. He can benefit from more practice.
The home we seek for Chance MUST HAVE another dog in the home who enjoys playing, maybe not to the degree that Chance does, but enough for things to be a dog/dog match. It is so fun to watch him play with an array of dogs and see the joy he feels while doing so, only for him to completely crash, asleep, neck to neck with another dog that minutes before he was having a blast with. He seems fine with kids, so kids or no kids is fine, but truth be told, his interest is not really in playing with kids, but in wrestling with, running around with, and chasing other dogs. As I am writing this, the play has stopped, and he is chilling on a pet bed near me very peacefully and calmly, so he can definitely settle down, and the fact that he is near me shows that he truly likes to be where the people are.
Chance is neutered, microchipped, dewormed, and is current on shots including rabies. If you are interested in Chance, please contact Angel’s Heart Dog Rescue at: email@example.com.
