Adoptable Dachshund Mix Sophia is a loving and sweet girl who was never given the chance to be a puppy. At currently 1-years-old she has already had two adorable babies before she was really ready.
Adoptable Dachshund Mix Sophia
She likes to snuggle and will pick her human and love them to the moon and back. Although Sophia likes other dogs, she takes time to warm up and can be snippy when cuddling with her human,
Sophia likes sunbathing by the pool but prefers a quiet, loving home. She will tell you when she needs attention and requires it often. Due to moderate anxiety, her human needs to have patience while settling in. However, she does not have separation anxiety.
Small children would not likely be the best fit for this sweet little pup. At only 13 pounds, she could be easily injured and younger children have been known to trigger her anxiety.
A smart little girl, though new to the leash, she’s learned quickly and most definitely enjoys her walks. As a matter of fact, she gets pretty excited when it’s time to go out. The area where she walks is a quiet neighborhood, and it’s probable that a busier area would cause her to be anxious.
Her anxiety will require patience and understanding but once she works through that, you will see a beautiful, amazing lil girl that you won’t be able to help falling in love with.
She is still working on her potty habits and will go outside on her own to use the bathroom, but she has a nervous bladder and will flatten out and piddle when threatened or scared. Time and loving encouragement should help, but it’s important to remember that she is still an immature dog who didn’t get proper training early on.
Sophia sleeps with her fosters and does very well as long as she is the only dog in the bed. She also sleeps well in her dog bed and is crate trained. She love her toys and has no shame in stealing from other dogs. Sophia likes to chew so needs appropriate toys to keep her busy. Believe it or not, this little one does well and enjoys car rides. She needs to be strapped in safely, but settles in with little anxiety for the ride.
Large groups are not a good fit for her. Sophia does best getting to know people with a quiet introduction and time to trust. She does better when meeting new dogs, as long as they respect her space.
Adoptable Dachshund Mix Sophia is a loving and sweet dog who likes to snuggle and will pick her human and love them to the moon and back. With patience and a calm atmosphere, she will make a loving companion.
