Sammy is a special case that requires a special FEMALE ONLY owner. Sammy needs an owner with lots of dog experience—someone who is willing to work on a real “challenge” of a dog. Sammy is still dealing with the extreme grief that some dogs experience when their owners tragically pass away—he has been angry about his past for a while now and is slowly getting better but is ready for the next step—a home. He hates all men, as he was abused by one, and can be aggressively protective. He is a very small dachshund who is distrustful—however, once he get comfortable with you, he WILL be a dream. Sammy deserves to be given a chance to learn what love is. If you are a STRONG female with many years of dog experience and are willing to accept a challenge like Sammy, please submit an application and DDRTX will contact you and discuss how we can work together, with a Rehabilitation Dog Trainer, to help him learn accept love.
