Adoptable Dachshund LilBit – Pending

Adoptable Dachshund LilBit

Adoptable Dachshund LilBit is a small, female dachshund who enjoys the companionship of other dogs. She has some separation anxiety when separated from her furry friends. It is unclear if she likes big dogs or cats, but she’s a very good natured, mellow, senior who would probably do well with older children that understand proper handling.

This sweet girl is leash savvy and loves to go for walks outside. Though she likes the activity, and spending time with furry friends, she also wants plenty of attention from her humans, and lap time to go along with it. She’s shown some separation anxiety when her humans are not in sight, however this has decreased as she has gotten used to her new foster environment. Even though she doesn’t like to be confined to a crate, she’s become adjusted and settles down now after only a few minutes. It’s been easier for her to adjust when the fur siblings are around, as she seems to take her cues from them.

House training hasn’t been an issue for this mature doxie. She loves dog beds and blankets, laps and couches (with supervision, of course) as it’s important for all dachshunds to have around furniture. There is no doubt she would happily sleep in the big bed, if allowed.

Lil’Bit has enjoyed short car rides with her foster family and likes to ride in the lap of her foster mom. She has had limited exposure to new dogs, due to recuperation from surgery, but is very attached to the pack at her foster home. She isn’t shy or timid, but is a good natured, friendly dog.

She is a minimal barker, who usually only barks outside when bikes or golf carts go by. Does not join in when her foster brothers bark at real and imaginary things in the house.

While she has been in a state of transition, Lil’Bit shows signs of separation anxiety. The anxiety has decreased as she has recovered and settled into trusting her foster family, but would not do well if left alone for long periods. She needs a home where people are home most of the time.

Summary

In short, Lil’Bit is a very sweet and friendly senior dog. She just loves to be around her humans and doggie siblings. You can feel her smiling with pure joy and pleasure in your company. This little girl appears to be smart and has picked up very quickly on potty times, meal times, meal stations, snack times, etc. She will herd you to the door when she needs to go outside, but is on a routine at her foster home. Lil’Bit sleeps through the night like a champ, especially now that her incision is healed. She has had some tooth loss but is not any special diet and tolerates both wet food and kibble without issue.

Lil’Bit is a 10 year old, 11 pound, Female dachshund. If you believe you could provide the safe and loving forever home for this dog, please fill out an application with the dogs name on it.


*Be advised, we have a couple of volunteers processing hundreds of applications. We are unable to call everyone back as we do not have ANY employees. Our dedicated volunteers and foster parents will check references of the applications that appear to be a good match. At that time, if you are chosen, we will contact you to arrange a home visit.

The adoption fee helps to cover costs, as each dog is fully vetted, and treated, as needed to prepare them to move forward in their new life. You pay no fee unless you are chosen to adopt.
