And now a few words from us:
We are Benjamin & Barrett, dachshund pair extraordinaire! We are two very friendly boys who like to snuggle with our humans. We like to stay together as much as possible, but Barrett is much more the explorer than Ben. We are great guard dogs; no one will ever get in without you knowing about it! We like to walk and play together, and also like running with our foster friends. Can we snuggle with you?
And now a few words from our foster mom:
Ben & Barrett are sweet dogs that like to snuggle. Barrett is very outgoing, has lots of energy and loves to play with other dogs. Ben is a bit mellower, and is happy to lounge on the couch while you watch TV. Ben has had some extensive dental work and needs to have soft/soaked food and treats. Housetraining is a work in progress, though they have definitely been improving. B&B have slowly been learning rules of the house (not to jump on furniture, pee outside, etc), and will definitely need further encouragement. They do bark at strange noises or when the other dogs bark, so wouldn’t do well in an apartment. They have been great with meeting new people, but have been a bit shy meeting larger dogs. They get anxious when separated for long periods, so we have crated them together when they are left alone and at night. If you are looking for sweet snugglers, these are your guys!
