Adoptable dachshund Zander is a sweet, super handsome boy! He loves to play with other dogs and go on long walks. He is very well behaved in the car, and the pet store is his favorite destination.
Zander loves toys and never chews on things in the house that he shouldn’t. He is the perfect mix of energy and calm. He is just as happy cuddling on the couch all day as he is running around at the dog park.
He goes to the barn to help on the farm every day with his foster mommy. As long as he burns off plenty of energy, he doesn’t pull to much on the leash. He’s young and still learning these things but he is good on the leash.
Children under 5 are not a good fit for him. He’s terrified of them! He responded better with kids over 7 but needed to be carefully watched, coached, and awarded with treats.
Zander shows signs of anxiety and is afraid of new people, places and things. Paces and barks when he feels unsafe. Hides when he is scared. He hates being in busy or loud places. Tries to run away when he feels threatened. If I leave my house and my dogs are not with him, he shows severe separation anxiety. He will urinate/defecate, bark, scream and bite his crate. Now that he is comfortable in my home, his anxiety has improved dramatically.
He loves to go on walks BUT he will eat anything and everything he can find but he is a puppy like that! He is growing and improving every day in that department.
Friendly when meeting new dogs big and small, if a big dog ignores him, he doesn’t pay them any attention. Zander loves other dogs. He loves to play but respects “social cues” when the other dog does not want to play. It is unknown as to how he would respond to cats.
He is timid when meeting new people but he is quickly learning to enjoy attention from new friends. Now, Zander is almost completely housebroken, and will run to the door when he needs to go out. After a lot of work and positive reinforcement, he has not had one accident in almost 2 weeks! He has also stopped peeing in his crate. Oh, and did I mention how cute he is?
In our care he has received: Vet Check, Spay or Neuter, Nails Trimmed, Flea Treatments, Heart Worm testing and medication
Adoptable Dachshund Zander – 6 mos, 11 lbs.
Zander is a very young dogs who is full of energy. He needs someone, or a couple, who can match his zest for life and want to spend time with him outdoors. Young children are not a good fit, but he will adjust to older ones. He needs a dog friend or two to keep him calm when his people are away. Additional training will be needed to keep him progressing but he is learning quickly to be the best little dog! This cutie pie is a love who wants to cuddle, run, and play. Adoption fee $400
