Clark is a submissive boy who is blind and mostly deaf. He would like a home that will give him love and assurance. Clark loves to sleep in his own dog bed but also likes a good snuggle too. Despite his vision loss, Clark is an independent boy and does very in most situations.
When Clark came into rescue he was emaciated and his health had been neglected. His teeth were in terrible condition, and he has had to have most of them removed. He also has a fistula (hole) in his mouth that should be monitored for food stuck in tit. Surprisingly, Clark still seems to be able to eat anything his little heart desires with no problems.
Clark is house trained and will ask to go outside when he needs to 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.
Clark likes other dogs and would do well in home with children 13 years or older who understand the need to be gentle with him.
Clark is a talker! Little moans and and grunts to let his foster mom know he needs help or wants some love! Clark knows how to get what he needs.
This happy senior fellow is searching for a home to spend his retirement years in. Wouldn’t you love to have this charming dachshund join your family? He’s waiting for you!
