Shane D20254-05

  • Needs a resident dog
  • Brave dog savvy cat ot no cat
  • Children 8 and over
  • Owners who are around most of the time

Shane is a 5 and a half year old mini Dachshund described by his foster mum as a lovely little man who can initially be quite shy but he loves being picked up and cuddled. He loves nothing more than cwtching in as close as possible. So if you’re looking for a snuggle buddy Shane is your man.

He will play with a ball if you throw it for him but hasn’t worked out that playing with other dogs is just as much fun yet. Being a sausage in new surroundings he will bark at people passing the house but if someone comes to door will hide. He does eventually put his head around the door of the room the person is in and decide if it safe to come and say hello.

He hasn’t been out on a walk yet due to not having full jabs and needing time to adjust to his new surroundings.

He is okay with the resident cat but does like to bark at him so unless you have a strong willed dog savvy cat its probably best not to have a cuddly Shane in your home.

He is okay with children 8 and over.

Like all daxis Shane likes to sleep as close to his human as possible. As he is still decompressing, he is currently sleeping a lot and is slowly coming out of his shell. He also loves cuddling up with doggy friends.

Toilet training is a work in progress he knows what to do but doesn’t like the cold or wet.

Shane eats quite fast and is good with treats but is a little submissive when you approach him with them. We would recommend he has a slow feeder in his forever home so he tastes his food rather than inhaling it.

Shane needs a quieter home as he can get a little startled. He would be fine with an older family where he can be properly adored and will reward you with total adoration, love and kisses. He would love pawrents who maybe work from home and he can be their PA. He needs a home with a resident dog who can help him come out of his shell and show him the way of the squirrel.
