Adoptable Dachshund Nugget is a very sweet boy and he loves to be around people. He has a big dachshund personality, he’s super smart, and learns quickly. Nugget will let you know what he wants, and when he wants it.
Nugget will not let his people get out of his sight. He loves his toys and the more he has the happier he is. Nugget plays hard and sleeps hard. He would benefit from a fenced-in yard so he can sniff all over, chase lizards, and sun bathe. He would be happiest with someone who is home most of the time.
Adoptable Dachshund Nugget walks better with a harness as he will pull too much with a leash alone. He hasn’t had any accidents at his foster’s home. Nugget does NOT like to be crated. He prefers to sleep next to his foster.
Nugget does get over excited at times, but he doesn’t show any aggression. He has growled a couple times when his foster tried to take a toy from him, but he was playing. This is important to understand as he is not being aggressive. Nugget will chew his toys up and pull the stuffing out when he is bored; but as his pictures show, he loves them. Toy destruction is a “not so secret” pass-time of the dachshund breed.
Adoptable Dachshund Nugget should be secured on car rides so that he doesn’t try to jump on the driver. Nugget enjoys his car rides, and puts his head out the window when the car is stopped. He does have separation anxiety when he is left alone.
Adoptable Dachshund Nugget – 10 years – 23 lbs
Nugget was bad about chewing things but that was when he was locked in a room. He was allowed to run free with his foster, and the chewing stopped. He has not been around children younger than 5. Nugget tries using his dominance when he is first introduced to other dogs, but will calm down very quickly and gets along with them well.
Adoptable Dachshund Nugget is not exactly afraid of storms and fireworks, but he doesn’t like them. Sometime he will bark at them on and off, but it isn’t excessive.
Like many dachshunds (or possibly all) he is a lover of food. Good food, bad food, weird food, he’s a FOODIE. He would benefit greatly by an owner who paid attention to his diet and helped him stay active. Yes, he could stand to loose a little bit of extra weight. As a matter of fact, as he moves into the next few years, a healthy lifestyle would go a long way in assuring he enjoys many more years.
Nugget had his Senior Vet Check, 1 or more Vaccines, Dental Exam, Medication (temporary – like for acute infection), Minor Surgery (such as removal of benign cyst), Nail Trim, Heart Worm testing and medication, and Major Dental (cleaning and removal).
Nugget has a big dachshund personality, and once he gets comfortable, he will never leave your side! If you are looking for a dachshund to love, it’s hard to go wrong with a boy like Nugget. He’s all doxie, all the time.

*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.
