Hi there, my name is Vanessa and I am an 8 year old smooth black and tan female Dachshund. I am one half of the ‘Baby and Vanessa’ duo and I would love to tell you a little more about us! My sis and I were surrendered into CDR’s care approximately 5 months ago when our elderly owners were unable to care for us. Unfortunately we were adopted once but have been returned to CDR and we’re hoping that our quest for a real forever home starts and ends with you!
Sadly, Baby and I have had a rough go in life! We were never properly socialized and therefore are quite shy. Although foster mom claims we’ve made tremendous progress in the short time we’ve been with her; patience and lots of love will go a long way with us gals. We hate to be picky but our forever home must be a house as, like most doxies, we tend to let out a few barks every now and again, especially when we’re left alone PLUS we really enjoy the luxury of our own backyard. If kept on a schedule and routinely let outside we never have accidents in the house.
Once we’re comfortable, we love to snuggle, especially in the big bed! We’re real lazy gals and would lounge around all day if foster mom let us. Don’t get me wrong, Baby and I enjoy a good play session with each other every now and again too! We also don’t mind hanging out in a crate when the mood strikes!
I’m much more independent and laid back whereas Baby requires more re-assurance. She loves to follow our foster mom around and settles best in her presence. She doesn’t really like it when we’re left alone but calms eventually, hey – I’m not that bad of a companion!
Double the love, double the cuteness and double the cuddles – that’s what you’ll get if you open up your home and heart to Baby and Vanessa!
