Dachshund Mix
Small (6-20 lbs)
Status: Available from another shelter

Fidelito is a 6 year old Dachshund mix who weighs 20-22 lbs. He’s a very smart and generally well behaved dog. Fidelito is most at ease when he knows his routine. He will need a loving home that understands his need to go slowly with new people, and can give him all the love he needs.

Fidelito does well in a household where he gets lots of love and attention, he enjoys outdoor time and is just as comfortable exploring the trails as he is chilling in the sun on his bed. While he is used to being the only dog in a childless household, he has spent plenty of time in households with other dogs as well as on pack walks, and gets along well with them. He is an old soul and is not necessarily very social with all other dogs, but doesn’t mind their company. He will engage in a game of chase every now and then, but on his own terms.

He’s very food/treat motivated (did someone say cheese?) and very smart, which makes training pretty easy. He’s an agile dog, and loves jumping onto objects and chasing after his ball. Fidelito is used to being walked off leash on the trails, and loves falling behind and then sprinting to catch up (he will never let his human out of sight). He is fully house trained, and goes out for a short “bathroom break” walk twice a day (morning and evening) and a longer one in the middle of the day.

Fidelito spends most of the rest of the day cuddled up, ideally as close as possible to his human on the couch, but he’s also perfectly fine on a dog bed next to someone. He generally follows his human from room to room around the house. While he’s gotten used to having people around most of the time, he adjusted well to being left alone at home for longer stretches of 4-5 hours.

Fidelito is best suited for a home with prior experience with dogs. If there are any children in the home they should be a little older.

Fidelito is fully up to date on rabies, bordatella, DHPP, and flea/tick prevention. He is neutered.
