Schnitzel the Dashing Dachshund! He is a 10 year old grey and black dapple senior who is looking for his retirement home.
In the words of his foster: He loves his humans and likes nothing better than falling asleep beside his human on the couch or chair. He does not have to be crated, although will get into the garbage or Kleenex if available. Wonderful personality, happy, loving, good natured, he talks in “Dashound” noises, little squeaks apparently particular to this breed when they want something. It sounds like a dog whimper and a gerbil noise all together.
He loves his walks but only slowly and not very far. He will play with his ball for hours and really loves his toys. He is deaf and is learning hand signals so someone with experience with deaf dogs would be an asset. Schnitzel gets along with other dogs but has not been cat tested. He is also good with children and doesn’t jump up.
Schnitzel does have separation anxiety so we will be looking for a home for him where his people are home more often than not and who are in detached housing. He has been neutered, has received his vaccines and a dental.
His adoption fee is $300.
