Squirt the Honorary Dachshund is now Adopted! He is the cutest little bundle of puppy love . . . as long as you are female! Squirt is an adorable male long haired terrier mix, about 6 years old and weighs only 7 pounds.
So far, he isn’t so good with men. BUT, if he claims you, you are his…forever and he will let others know it. He will also let YOU know it by not letting you out of his sight. Like a good little dachshund wanna-be, he will follow you faithfully around the house – to the kitchen, to the bathroom, to the laundry room, and back.
His nails will need constant attention for a while as they are so very long. He also has allergies and will need to be on allergy meds daily or as suggested by the vet. When he was brought to his foster home it took him a few days to eat, but now that he is acclimated he is doing great!
He is protective over his foster mom even though he is also friendly but may attempt to nip (not a bite) if he feels others are a “threat” to his beloved. This is a behavior that can be fixed with lots of discipline, love and providing squirt with a safe environment to thrive.
Squirt is an all around good boy! He likes dogs and cats as well. He’s house trained and likes to walk on a leash. He usually potties on a leash, so we can only assume he is not used to a free yard. He will stand by the door and let you know he needs to go outside, looking at you!
Recently, we discovered he is not too fond of younger children when hyper or too playful. He may be suited best for a home with older children 12+m Squirt is good with older children. He likes car rides and he is treat motivated, so he learns quickly.
