Chewie is an adorable 3 yr old smooth male chocolate and tan piebald dachshund. Chewie is a joyful little guy who can be energetic at times, running, barking and rolling in stuff outside, but at other times, he just wants to curl up in your lap for a nap. He often wears his ears in "sport mode" so they will need frequent factory resets. He's equal parts silly, fun and snuggly.
Unfortunately, Chewie has some intense fear issues of people he doesn't know. He will need time and patience to get to know new people and learn to trust them, but when he does trust someone, he's an absolute love that follows you everywhere and wants to snuggle in your lap all the time. Due to his fearful reaction to new people, Chewie will need a fairly quiet home with no kids.
Chewie is doing well with potty training as long as you get him outside regularly. He does great in the crate and will jump right in when you ask him to.
Chewie is very treat, food and praise motivated and is a quick learner. He's a bright dog that is curious and attentive. He listens well, comes when you call him and really just wants to make you happy. However, loud, stern voices scare him, so calm, patient voices will be needed in his forever home.
Chewie can be an escape artist and is very fast, so he will need a securely fenced yard for his safety.
Chewie loves to be around other dachshunds and will need a resident dog in his home. He seems to prefer the company of other dachshunds as he has shown a dislike for neighbor dogs (both large and small) that are not dachshunds. He's just learning how to play and would enjoy a companion that would continue to teach him how to play, hang out in the yard with him and keep him company.
If you are looking for a cheerful, loving companion, and don't mind resetting those ears, apply to adopt Chewie today!
