Facts about Mouse

  • Breed: Chihuahua/Dachshund Mix

Mouse is a 5 or 6 year old dachshund/chihuahua (?) mix, around 10 pounds. His name really does suit him, he is extremely timid and scared of almost everyone when he first meets them. He has probably not been treated kindly in the past. It will take him a while, but he will warm up eventually, especially if you have treats to offer. He wants to trust people, but just isn't sure. He likes to play with stuffed toys. Mouse will need a kind and patient adopter to help him learn that not all people are out to hurt him. He would do best in a quiet adults only home. He has been waiting for over three years for a home of his own, and in that time has bonded closely with Creed (another shy guy) 18661931, to the point that they really need to be adopted together.
