Hi! I’m Gerry. I’m just about one of the cutest puppies you will ever meet. I have a long body and short legs just like my Dachshund mom did. I think I will grow up to be a small dog. But, there are no guarantees because Mom never told me who my dad is. I love people, other dogs, and cats. I also love to eat, nap, snuggle, and play…typical puppy stuff. I have a moderate amount of energy so I think that I could live in a house with a fenced backyard, a townhouse, or an apartment. I have not been walked on a leash yet, but I am sure that with you at my side, I’ll love exploring the big new world. I am still very young and not house trained. I know what I should do when I am let outside, but if I have to go, inside is as good as out. I sleep in a crate with my siblings. I know when it is bedtime and I curl up in the blankets without any complaints. I am a bit of a rascal. I do naughty things like run off with a slipper just to get my people, the other dogs in the house, and the cat who thinks he is a dog to chase me. I love to lounge in the sun outside and when I come inside, I like to be lifted onto the couch for snuggles and tummy rubs. I know I have a lot to learn and I will make mistakes. In return, I will make you laugh and give you kisses and cuddles.
For additional information please contact my foster mom Sue (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Adoption Fee: $350.00 + $45.00 for a health certificate if going over state lines (required by law). Dogs adopted in New England are subject to additional rules and regulations by the state departments of agriculture. Complying with these regulations is expensive for our rescue, and all dogs adopted in New England states are subject to an additional $135 fee to help cover a portion of these expenses.
If you see a furbaby that is a match for your family, don’t let distance stand in the way of your adoption. LPDR can work with you to have a volunteer transport to assist with transportation or refer you to a paid transport.
