And now a few words from me:
Hi! I’m Freckles, an older dappled girl. I am the perfect mix of a quiet well-behaved senior, with a bit of sass that keeps my foster mom entertained. I’m not very tall, but I’ve got a very sturdy build! I’m very easy going, my foster mom says I could even be someone’s first dog – I’m that nice. I like to greet new people with an excited bark, a wiggle, and a cuddle. I’m very well behaved and have excellent leash manners. I’m still learning not to jump on the human furniture though! Don’t let my age fool you – I can take on a squeaky toy, and a walk like a youngster. I require exercise every day so I don’t chew things around the house. After my walk, I’m happy to hang out sunning myself, or in my crate while my foster mom is at work. I am insecure around large dogs, so I would prefer a home with a calm dog my size. New to my breed? Or looking for a low maintenance senior companion? I’m your girl!
And now a few words from my foster family:
Freckles is one of the sweetest Dachshunds I have met. She is very quiet and easy going. Her gentle disposition makes her easy to handle, and she has great leash manners. She is in very good health, and the vet says she has many good years ahead of her. Her exact age is unknown, but the vet estimates she is between 11-13 years. She has a streak of sass in her that keeps her young, and us entertained. She loves to take the stuffing out of toys and dog beds so she needs to be crated when unattended. She is very comfortable, and quiet in her crate. Freckles requires slow introduction to dogs. She dislikes large dogs, and will growl, and bark at them unless corrected. She prefers to have a canine companion that is her size. She will greet new people with a bark, but is very easily corrected. She will then proceed to become their best friend!
