Dave is a 6-month old Miniature Dachshund, who is being fostered in Crewe, Cheshire. He is a typical, full-on puppy and is looking for an experienced home where he will learn boundaries and get plenty of further training and socialisation.
People – Dave is great with people. He can be unsure initially but soon makes friends and loves everyone he meets. Due to his size and breed Dave will only be rehomed where any children are older.
Dogs – Dave can live with or without other dogs. He exhibits typical puppy behaviour and can be a pain so any resident dogs must be able to cope with this. We will not rehome him with a dog who is wanting a peaceful retirement. When out he wants to speak to every dog he meets.
Cats – Dave is very full on with the cat in his foster home so we are looking to rehome him without cats and small furries.
In the home – Dave is an energetic puppy who loves having a garden to play in. His house training is a work in progress and he will need further training in this area so he is aware of what are acceptable toileting areas. He is crate trained but will bark initially before settling. Being a puppy he may get into trouble if left alone for more than a few seconds and will need to be watched so he doesn’t chew anything he shouldn’t.
Out and about – Walks are the most exciting thing ever but like his legs, his attention span is somewhat limited 😊 He will need further recall training so he actually remembers to come back to his owners! He does walk well with a lead and harness. He travels well in the car and has been fine at the vets.
Type of home – Dave is looking for a home where his humans are home for most of the day. He does need further work with his housetraining, and training in general, so would not be suitable for full time workers. Dave is a bundle of energy and any children in the home will have to be older. Underneath that cute exterior he is a Dachshund, and these dogs are known for having certain health problems and personality traits, so a Dachshund-experienced home is desirable.
Dave is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with her flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet him in his foster home in Crewe, Cheshire.
