Old Peko is an adorable double dapple long haired guy who was turned over to a high kill shelter with a lot of other dachshunds. The reason for the turn over was not given. We can assume it was a breeder seizure but we cannot say for sure. Needless to say, the dogs got a second chance at life the day that rescue came into their lives.
Old Peko is a double dapple dachshund. It is a genetic flaw in the breeding and happens when two dapples or pie balds breed. The puppies that are born have a high chance of being born with special needs issues. Some are born without eyes, ears, tails or even vital organs. Others are born deaf, blind or with medical issues. When animals are born with issues, they know no different and have amazing ways of adaption.
Old Peko is one of those double dapples who have issues with his eyes. His eyes are malformed and we do not know how well he can see but he can definitely see well enough to get around. He can navigate his surroundings very well and once he gets to know his new home will do the same. We believe his hearing is fine.
Old Peko is neutered and up to date on all his shots.
Old Peko is one of the most mellow laid back little guys we have ever met. He is so loving and trusting. He is perfectly happy laying next to you, on your lap, at your feet or following in your footsteps. Don’t get us wrong…he has his moments of activity where he likes to run and play…especially when there are treats involved…
We believe that Old Peko would do well with children with dachshund experience (above the age of 12). We believe that he needs a dachshund experienced home and if someone has experience with blind or hard of seeing dogs, it would be a plus. It takes a special home for a special dog...
Any dachshunds that have longhaired or wirehaired coats will need to be groomed on a regular basis, otherwise things can get caught in their coat and lack of grooming can cause hair matting, which can be painful for the dogs if not properly taken care of. Many local groom shops should have knowledge on how to properly groom your longhaired or wirehaired dachshunds.
Most dogs especially the older ones (12 months and older) are house trained and can either use a doggie door or have a door left open for them; however most of the time there WILL be a few accidents in the beginning as all of the dogs are nervous and uncomfortable. But with the proper discipline this behavior should stop within a few weeks.
Tax deductible adoption fees for Old Peko are to be announced.
