Adoptable Dachshund Halo is the ultimate sofa dog. She loves to sleep the day away curled up on her blanket. Halo absolutely loves dinner time and is constantly wagging her tail for joy. She would love nothing more than someone to give her all the love she truly deserves.
A dog attacked poor Halo a few years ago and unfortunately she lost the use of one of her eyes. She is fine with her foster dogs ages 16 weeks to 7 years. She shows no signs of aggression at all other than just a few warning grumbles to leave her alone when play gets a bit rough. As for larger dogs, her foster has a retriever mix named Lilly who pretty much ignores Halo. She is not scared of Lilly and quite happily sits next to her. Additionally, Halo’s foster has 2 cats and she acts like she doesn’t even realize she is living with cats! She is such an easygoing gentle soul.
Adoptable Dachshund Halo
Halo does have an occasional accident in the house, so she would prefer to go out to do her duty on a regular schedule. Halo does not like being in a crate at all, so that will not be an option. She will warn pups to stay away from her bowl at dinner time, but will not not be aggressive. Halo’s previous owner noted she had separation anxiety as she was the only dog in her previous home. Possibly Halo’s foster dogs and cats have helped her overcome anxiety with their companionship.
Halo may benefit having a forever home with an older quieter dog, or maybe being an only dog. Movement around Halo should be slow, as she is blind in one eye and gets startled easily. She suffers from IVDD, so she is a little unsteady on her back legs.
She should be picked up and placed on the couch, and helped off. Halo doesn’t seem to bark according to her foster which is unusual for doxies! She had her Vet check and has received 1 or more vaccines, Dental Exam, Nail Trim, Flea Treatment, Heartworm test as well as appropriate medication.

*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.
