Benny is a 5 year old, active and happy Dachshund. We rescued him from a shelter. He gets along with other dogs just great, plays and runs around all day long with them. He has learned about using a doggy door in his foster home and is doing pretty good about it. He is thin right now and we are trying to get some weight on him. He should weigh about 12-13 pounds when in good weight. Benny has a grade 2 heart murmur. Do not let that concern you, if one is going to have a heart murmur best to have a grade 1 or 2. He needs no medication or special diet for it. If he were a pup with a grade 2 the concerns would be there that it would worsen but Benny is 5 years old and two vets have agreed there is no concerns. He doesn't seem to have gotten much training in his original home but he also seems anxious to be with his human and probably would love some training classes. Great opportunity for bonding with your new canine best friend.
