Dash is a VERY sweet, small standard dachshund at a little over 18 lbs. He is 11 years old, but you wouldn’t know it by the way he races around with his toys. When he is not playing with toys, he is a mellow, laid-back dude. He is fully potty trained and walks well on a leash. He really enjoys having several short walks a day, as well as sunning himself in the back yard. He has no food aggression whatsoever, and he likes respectful kids. He is good with other dogs of all sizes, and he might be okay with a dog-savvy cat who shows him who is boss right away – but otherwise cats are not a good idea.
Dash loves, loves, LOVES, his stuffed squeaky toys, but he destroys them easily. He must have super strong ones and be supervised with them so they can be removed once he rips them open. He will sometimes try to eat the pieces he rips off. He gets very sad about losing his ripped toys, but he cheers up when he gets a new one.
He does have separation anxiety, so he will do best with someone who is home all day. He likes a crate, but he prefers to be in bed with you at night. He tends to snuggle next to you, rather than on you, but he will sleep on your lap if you put him there.
If you are looking for a dog who will treat you like you are his whole world, then Mr. Dash is the dog for you!
