Adoptable dachshund Pixel has been ADOPTED! She’s a loving, sweet dog. Her life on the street had been rough. She was skin and bones, covered in fleas, and suffering neglect when the Low Rider team jumped in over the 4th of July weekend to bring her to safety.
Adoptable Dachshund Pixel
Her foster mom has nurtured her and she’s gotten terrific veterinary care. Guess what? Pixel is ready for her forever home!
Inside she likes to sit on your lap, but outside she is looking/chasing/barking at lizards and squirrels. Pixel will get along with other dogs, however, she would be fine as an only dog getting all the attention. Pixel will bring much joy to any home with her adorable personality. She is also super cute with having only dapple on her ears and top of head.
Pixel has two foster siblings, both small and one who is 11 months old loves to play; Pixel does play with her, just not as much as her new friend would like. Although she hasn’t been around any big dogs since coming to Low Rider, her foster mom thinks she’d do well.
She has been friendly with the neighbors cat. Well, friendly may be too strong of a word, but she sniffs the cat, ignores the cat, and does not chase it!
Pixel is such a friendly dog, her foster mom believes she’d do fine with children as long as they were taught to be very gentle and properly trained to handle dachshunds. This is important for children and adults alike as we have seen all too often what can happen when their long backs don’t get the support and care required.
With frequent bathroom breaks outside, Pixel will do best as she sometimes has accidents in the house, mostly at night because she doesn’t wake her foster mom up to go out at night. During the day, she usually doesn’t have that problem. She is crate-trained, but prefers to sleep in her dog bed.
Pixel has spent a little bit of time sleeping on the bed with her fosters, but it isn’t something she begs to do. This may be due to the fact that her little foster sibling isn’t keen on the idea of her being on the bed! It’s likely she would take to it if her new family wanted her to, but she’s also happy in her dog bed.
This sweet and gently dog is not food or toy aggressive. Pixel does not go after other dog’s food while they are there eating, although she will not tolerate them coming to her food bowl and may lunge at them with a growl. With time to adjust in her new home, most likely she wouldn’t even do that. Because she had gone without needed food, it makes sense that she would be protective of her meals!
Pixel is a loving dog who enjoys meeting new people. She may bark in greeting a new dog, but is just talking to them. She adjusted very well to her foster siblings. Barking is obviously how she communicates, and she does bark at appropriate times. She does not however, bark excessively!
Anxiety and being timid are not really a part of her doxie makeup! Once she had a chance to adjust to her foster home, she fit right in without issue. She showed a little bit of anxiousness when her foster mom would leave her initially but has again adjusted very quickly.
Pixel enjoys napping in your lap when inside and when outside on lizard and squirrel alert. She is a loving, sweet dog who is eager to please. Pixel is smart and learned her new name in no time. Her face is pretty with sweet eyes and dapple markings on top of her head and ears. Pixel will no doubt add joy in her forever home!
