Adoptable dachshund Winnie is a very sweet and loveable girl that wants to be with her persons as much as possible. Her previous owners took very good care of her and she just wants the love and attention that she deserves.
Winnie loves her food but isn’t food or toy aggressive. Keeping her weight under control will be important for her spine and joints.
Although she has mobility issues, it doesn’t slow her down in the least. She can slide across the room to greet visitors before the other dogs get there. She loves to sit and watch Survivor with her foster mom and enjoys walks around the neighborhood in her stroller. She doesn’t mind having fur siblings but would be perfectly OK with being an only child that gets all the scratches and naps to herself.
Due to mobility issues, Winnie should not be around small children that could accidentally hurt her. Older tweens and teens who have been trained to watch out for her spine would be fine.
Winnie loves to ride in the car with her human, especially if there are stops for pup-cups. She’s super friendly when meeting new people and is social with other dogs. She has been around lots of dogs and hasn’t had an issue with any of them.
Although she doesn’t like to be left alone, Winnie is not destructive. She will use a crate, but doesn’t like it much. We recommend only using one when needed. She prefers to be right next to her person in the big bed but also will sleep in her own bed if needed.
Adoptable Dachshund Winnie – 5 yrs – 12 lbs
Winnie is house trained and very much enjoys her walks. It’s important to use a harness and take short walks with her. She especially likes getting out in the stroller to enjoy the fresh air and greet other dogs. A yard would be nice for her to spend time in with her human. Winnie doesn’t mind other dogs but could just as easily enjoy the single life as long as her person is around most of the time.
Winnie underwent back surgery in Oct 2022 and has been slow to regain mobility. She requires stretching, strengthening, and patients with getting back on her feet but can walk short distances that look like she’s a drunken sailor!
If you believe you could provide a safe and loving forever home for this dog, please fill out an application with the dogs’ name on it.
*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.
The adoption fee helps to cover costs, as each dog is fully vetted, and treated, as needed to prepare them to move forward in their new life. You pay no fee unless you are chosen to adopt.
