Tennyson is a very sweet, out-going Papillon/Daschund mix with maybe a splash of Chihuahua in there somewhere. He's roughly 8lbs and we estimate him to be about 10 months old now. Tennyson has a beautiful, medium-length silky coat that is so soft. Although he's still a puppy, Tennyson is well behaved and doesn't get too rowdy. In fact, one of Tennyson's favorite pasti mes is nap time! His foster mom calls him "Tired Tenny" because he always seems to be dozing off. He plays nicely with both big and small dogs, and even cats too! Tennyson is very close with the other dogs in his foster home so we want him to make sure he goes to a home with another dog who is also social. Tennyson also loves people and really enjoys making new friends, especially if they're willing to hand out belly rubs. Those are his favorite!
Tennyson is looking for the perfect forever home because he hasn't had the best start to life. You see, this sweet, gentle little boy was picked up as a stray on the streets of Houston with a broken hip. There's no telling what would have happened to him if the wonderful people at Harris County and K-9 Angels hadn't stepped in to help him. Tennyson has already had surgery to repair his broken hip and he's on the road to recovery. He's getting around just fine and will likely be completely normal once he's fully recovered.
Tennyson does well in his crate when his foster mom is at work, but he probably won't need to be crated once he's a little bit older. He's not much of a trouble maker at all. Tennyson is also doing really well with his potty training. He's only had a few accidents in the house, and most of those were during his first few days out of the shelter, so who can blame him? Tennyson already sleeps all night in the big kids' bed without ever needing to go outside. If you're looking for a sweet, lovable, happy pup then Tennyson might be the perfect guy for you! :)
Tennyson is a Male Papillon / Dachshund mix that we estimate to be born around July 15, 2016 and weighs 8 lbs.
PUPPIES: Young puppies that have not had their second round of puppy shots will not be at the Adoption Center for our weekend adoption events. If you are interested in adopting a puppy, please fill out an application on our website http://www.k-9angelsrescue.
OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS: We do allow out-of-state adoptions for dogs, however, the adopter MUST come to Houston to get the dog and take the dog home with them. We do not allow our dogs to be shipped. However, we only adopt young puppies locally, due to the 4 month timeframe it takes to get them fully vetted and altered.
SPAY/NEUTER: As we believe proper healthcare of one’s pet is a requirement of good ownership K-9 Angels Rescue only adopts out dogs that have been fully vetted. If the dog being adopted is not already altered at the time of their adoption, the dog will be altered within 2 weeks of adoption at our vet at our cost, with the exception of puppies which will be altered as soon as the puppy is ready.
NOTE: All dogs are officially the property of K-9 Angels Rescue until they are altered by our veterinarian.
