found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
UPDATE 2/12/09 After being in my foster home just over a week, I am doing very well! I am completely crate trained, and will go in the crate at my leisure, especially after breakfast. I bark now to tell my foster parents to feed me, let me outside, or take me for a car ride! I have also learned to eat near the other dogs in my foster home, and to go outside and do my business with them. I will eat dry food now too. I wag my whole back end along with my tail, and my foster Mom says I am quite a snuggling lover.
Hi, my name is BOGEY and I am a 5 year old, 17 lb, black and tan smooth tweenie dachshund. My CKC papers say my name is Whiskey Beauregard but that is too long to remember so everyone just calls me Bogey. I was separated from my doggy wife & 2 sons when my human mom and dad had to send 3 of us away. They were moving into a small apartment that only allowed one dog. I was so sad when I had to leave them but my foster mom and dad made me feel very welcome. I was shy and nervous at first but have since warmed up to them, my foster dad is my favorite so far. For the most part, I get along with my two foster brothers (also Dachshunds). I used to be very protective of my food, treats and rawhide strips with my dog family in my previous home, but I have recently learned to mellow out and can even eat my meals just a few feet away from my foster brothers. I am a slow and picky eater and I prefer the canned and wet food over the dry chow. I might be convinced to eat chow mixed in with the wet stuff in the future though. Even though I am an in between%9D dachshund, at 16 lbs I could really use a slim down so I do not hurt my back or get diabetes. I am fully house broken but have a little trouble with the cold weather since I am a Florida native. I absolutely LOVE car rides, burrowing under blankets, having my belly rubbed and snuggling with my foster mom and dad. I used to sleep with my human mom and dad in their bed when I lived in Florida but my foster mom and dad have been teaching me how to get comfortable in a crate for bedtime. At first I complained about the crate but now I will go into it without any coaxing, sometimes in the middle of the day!
I am not very tolerant of children since the only kids I have ever met - in Florida - used to throw stuff at me over the fence. I think I would do best in a family with grownup kids or just adults and I am not sure how I feel about living with dogs that are bigger than I am. Once you meet me you will find out how loveable and easy going I am and I am sure you will get hooked on the Bogster%9D in no time. My adoption fee is $225. I am in a foster home in Cherry Hill, NJ.
