Belle is a four-year-old, 9.4 lb., red Dachshund/Yorkshire Terrier mix, also known as the designer dog “Dorkie.” Initially shy when meeting new people, she soon warms up within days. She is well-behaved and very sweet and can also be a bit of a clown, due to cute little antics such as running off with a toy in her mouth after telling the other dogs off (like she is really going to do something about it - she’s not, or when she tries to play referee to the other dogs’ play). Belle is potty-trained and uses the doggie door (but potty reinforcement is needed in any new environment). She is crate-trained, but is so well trusted during the night, and so she prefers to sleep burrowed under the covers in the human bed, in typical Dachshund fashion. (Belle was always quite potty-trained and always seemed to know inherently that she must go outside to do her business, so a home with either an open door or a dog door seems to work ideally). Belle loves toys, and enjoys carrying one toy or another around in her mouth from time to time. Though definitely a mix, Belle is Dachshund in her personality as well as looks. Aside from her funky and unique coat, she looks, walks, talks, and acts Dachshund (if you’re looking for a Yorkie type dog, Belle is not it). Belle has no real issues; occasionally, she flips on her back to show submission. She loves all other dogs, big or small, boy or girl. She often cuddles with the other dogs on the same pet bed. She enjoys taking leashed walks, and LOVES car rides.
Belle’s story is a very sad one. Originally my rescue dog one and a half years ago, she was adopted, but returned one and half years later along with her sister Trixie when the owner came upon a hardship (Trixie was the already existing dog in the home when Belle’s adopter adopted Belle, so Belle and Trixie became a bonded pair). Fast forward to today. When we took in Trixie for routine shots and a dental cleaning, Trixie developed such a rare and unexpected complication from either the anesthesia or the shots that resulted in her passing away, leaving all of us devastated, and leaving Belle behind without her beloved sister. So at this point, we are only seeking a home for Belle where she can have another sister (or even a brother). Belle will not be adopted as the only dog in the home so please don’t ask (thank you!).
Belle is spayed, de-wormed, micro-chipped, and fully vaccinated. If you are interested in Belle, please contact Angel’s Heart Dog Rescue at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
