Merle is a calm submissive boy who is a bit fearful with new people. He would do very well in a home where he could be an only dog, and ideally in a home where his people are home most of the time. He gets along well with other dogs, cats and children over the age of 10 years and Merle would thrive in a home where he would receive a lot of attention and love. Merle quickly becomes attached to ‘his person’.
Merle is house trained but like all dachshunds he will need to be confident in his environment to have good potty habits. All rescue dogs go thru a period of adjustment so understanding and patience is important. Merle is crate trained.
Merle has IVDD and does sometimes walk with a hunched back. He should never be permitted to jump off and on furniture or use any stairs. IVDD dogs live wonderful love filled lives! Merle also takes a daily thyroid medication and is doing very well.
Merle LOVES to cuddle and that includes special times in the 'big bed' in his foster home in Alabama. He would love a home where he can continue his big bed sleepathons!
Magical Merle is waiting for someone who is looking for snuggles, cuddles and loving. Look into those eyes..... why not apply to adopt this wonderful boy and make your dream and HIS come true!
