And now a few words from me:
Hi, my name is Chase and people tell me that I’m quite the handsome boy. I am currently living in a foster home with my five foster siblings, made up of 2 dachshunds, 2 cats and a shepherd mix. I get along very well with my two dachshund foster siblings, but that big dog and I have had some words. Since the two dachshunds here are older than me, I have taken to playing with the cats. I enjoy going for walks with my foster siblings and have also taken some car rides to the cottage, where my foster parents were surprised to see how much I enjoyed the water! When it is bedtime I will sleep in an x-pen with my comfy pillow, blanket and stuffed toy, however my preference is to sleep on the dog beds with my dachshund foster siblings.
And now a few words from my foster family:
Chase is a great guy who has fit into the family quite well, however, he is not comfortable with our larger dog. We are careful not to leave them alone together and would not recommend that he be in a family with a larger dog, as he tends to bark and growl at them. Chase was surrendered by his owner because he nipped at their toddler, and because of this, we would recommend that he not be in a home with young children. He has always been with another dog and would do well to have a canine companion. He has very good listening skills. Chase will sleep in an x-pen, however we do let him hang out with the resident dachshunds overnight. When we do this we make sure that a pee pad is available for him, and he does use it. Chase is a very sweet boy who will be a wonderful addition to his new family.
