This is Pliny! We think he is a Chihuahua/ Dachshund mix, he weighs about 16 pounds and is about 6 years old. He’s a sweet little guy with a lot of personality! He is clever, brave, and a little bit mischievous. He’s an independent dog, who doesn’t really like to be held but always wants to be close by. As a champion napper he is always down for a nice snooze and scratches on the couch with his person. He can be a little shy with new people at first, so slow introductions are best for him. Once he knows you’re his friend, he is very sweet and silly!
Pliny enjoys his daily walks and is usually interested in meeting other doggy friends while out and about. He tends to offer quick sniffs and tail wags then carries on his way, but he does have a few regular pals with whom he gets playful.
Crowded settings and kids tend to be a little overwhelming for Pliny, so he’s looking for a fairly quiet home without kids or older dog-savvy kids who will be respectful of him. A home with other pets would also be okay as long as the others are not too high energy or overly rough players. He doesn’t seem interested in cats when he sees them on walks, so he may do well in a home with dog-savvy cats as well.
Pliny is ready for his forever home and cannot wait to be your adventure buddy to explore the world. If you are interested in Pliny please fill out an application here. A volunteer will be in touch! (KM)
