POTENTIAL ADOPTERS WILL BE EXPECTED TO TRAVEL TO MEET GEORGE
TO BE AN ONLY DOG
NO CATS OR SMALL FURRIES
SAUSAGE DOG EXPERIENCE WOULD BE OF BENEFIT
HE NEEDS AN OWNER WHO IS AROUND MOST OF THE TIME WHO WILL SPEND TIME HELPING HIM ADJUST TO A LOVING HOME AND HELP HIM WITH HIS QUERKS
George is a 2 year old mini cross standard smooth haired Dachshund described by his foster mum as a complex little man who adores his people. He can initially be nervous when he meets you but once he knows you are there for him, he is fine. He doesn’t seem to have seen much of the outside world and can be nervous and barky when unsure. This is being worked on but will need to continue in his forever home.
George once settled loves attention and to cuddle on the sofa and being a larger sausage just means there is more of him to adore. He is showing signs of being protective of his human and things but this is being worked on and will need to continue in his forever home.
George is unsure of children and they make him anxious so we would recommend and adult only home.
No cats not small furry tested but would not recommend
House training is a work in progress as are basic commands and luckily he loves treats so these are being used to help him understand what is needed of him
George is cage trained and uses his cage as his safe space. He is a dog who likes a routine and needs one to feel safe or he can become anxious.
George does not appear to have had much lead training or be out and about in the big wide world so is finding this all very new. When on the lead he can be a typical daxie and can be barkie and will try to nip if people or dogs come into his space uninvited. This is due to being nervous rather than aggression so he will need to be carefully introduced to people and dogs outside the home and make every contact a positive one. George off lead in a secure field has been mixing with other dogs.
George needs a home where he is the only dog and where someone is home the majority of the time who is willing to work on his nervousness and guarding issues so they don’t become a problem. He has just never been loved enough before to have had the time spent with him so a lot of things he is seeing now are new and we need every encounter to be a positive one. Once he has settled and trusts he will be an active little dog and will love adventures with his human. His foster mum says that despite his quirks he is a pleasure to have around.
