Dale is a 4-year-old male Dachshund mix. He has a sleek black and tan coat with a long body and short legs. Dale is small/medium weighing 20 pounds. HSWA pulled him from the local animal shelter. Dale was from a hoarding group of 13 dogs that were surrendered by the owner. He has recovered from a skin issue and looks and feels so much better now.
Dale is a very sweet, loving dog that is a little shy at first – but he warms up quickly. He has a calm, submissive personality and will make a wonderful companion dog. He likes to be with his person and to be loved on.
Dale should be fine in an apartment as long as he gets daily walks. He must be an inside dog but will required a fenced-in yard if left unattended at all outside. He seems to be fine with other dogs and should do well in a home with children 12 and older, but not younger, due to his size and his preference for a quieter environment.
He has started on his crate training. Dale is up-to-date on his vet care, is neutered, is heartworm negative, and is microchipped. He is on heartworm and flea/tick prevention.
After being with so many other dogs all his life, Dale will be happy to get more one-on-one attention in his new home!
