We are Dachshund/Terrier/Spaniel mix puppies (from our mom’s side) and don’t know who dad was. We will be ready for separate forever homes beginning July 1st and are taking applications. There are 3 girls and 1 boy (the only boy is Galileo one of the black fluffies). Our mom is a wonderful Doxie mix who weighs 12 lbs (see her photo below). We think we’ll be between 10-20 lbs when fully grown. We have been fostered with other dogs and cats and are healthy and a happy bunch!
Though Mama Ida has been adopted, we’ve enclosed the photos for reference.
We would love a home who’s committed to being with us most of the time, especially when we’re so young. We have so much learning and bonding to do! We do super-well with human toddlers, kids and other dogs. We’d love a doggie buddy at home to play with and learn from.
Before you submit your application for one of our cute, button faces please take a moment to read and think about the following: Training your puppy: When it comes to any puppy, think about what the dog is being encouraged to do now and ask yourself if this will be wanted behavior when the puppy is bigger and stronger. So while it may be adorable when a tiny puppy jumps up on people for attention, climbs up onto the couch and gnaws on people’s hands, that behavior isn’t so cute when the puppy is adult size, with adult teeth. Plan to take basic training classes with your new dog. A class builds the skills for the dog and creates lasting bonds with his or her new family. Socializing: Have puppies meet as many nice people and other animals as possible to learn and keep great social skills. Protect them from bad experiences. Fear causes many dogs to become defensive, and defensive behavior is seen as aggression.
Are you ready for a full time job with one of us? Are you committed to cleaning, training and socializing us for the rest of our lives? If you are ready for puppyhood (being home every 2-3 hours), we would love to meet you. Please fill out an application and a volunteer will contact you. (BS)
