Petey and will stay in a crate during the day for shorter periods for shopping and doctor appointments.
Adoptable Dachshund Petey is very much a family dog and would do fine with children who understand basic pet treatment. He loves to walk and is very well-behaved on a leash as he heels like a champ. Petey doesn’t react to moving vehicles or other dogs. He drinks a lot of water and does well with regular bathroom breaks.
Petey has been working hard on his crate training and with some special accommodations is much improved. He would do best in a home where he was not left alone for longer periods of time or a home with multiple people so someone is always around. Petey has responded best to behavior modification strategies like a noise bark collar, TV or radio on when no one is home, and the company of other dogs.
