Thumper is an adorable little chiweenie/choxie (half chihuahua and half dachshund) mixed girl who was turned over to a high kill shelter with a lot of other dachshunds. The reason for the turn over was not given. Thumper is a highly active/playful little girl. She loves to play wrestlemania and other games with her humans and her other four legged brothers/sisters. She is a loving little girl who can be a bit shy at first but once she gets to know you she loves to cuddle for a time, but then she likes to get down and play some more.
Thumper is crate trained and she has been tested with small children and large dogs and was fine around them before, however each situation is different. She shows no fear of anything other than loud noises. When she is afraid she will hide in her crate and shake for a few minutes and then will come out when all has calmed down and she is comfortable. She is spayed and up to date on her shots.
Thumper needs a forever home who has some dog experience. Someone who will be patient and understand that they need to play with her and understands her little personality quirks and loving little personality. Once she is comfortable and settled in her new home, she will loosen up and once she knows she is safe, she will romp and play with her new family.
Thumper would do well with children with dog experience (above the age of 5) a family who will pay alot of attention to her and play with her alot. She needs someone who knows dachshunds and their quirks but also understand chihuhuahuas and their personalities (the shaking/the nervousness of loud noises etc).
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 Thumper are to be announced.
