Bonjour! My name is Frippon. I’m a very shy short haired mini. I was a former puppy mill dog from Quebec, but am slowly learning how to be a regular happy guy.
I am quite good at going outside to pee, but not so sure about the pooping part. It’s pretty chilly out there for a little guy like me, so I still have a few accidents in the house. I am very shy around new people, but once I warm up to you I’m full of snuggles. My favourite spot is in your lap, under a blanket, on the couch.
I sleep in the big bed, because I get pretty cold when I sleep in my crate. I am used to my crate though, and will settle down in there sometimes, and I stay in there when you go out for long periods of time. I am happy to be around other dachshunds, but am very scared of larger dogs. I would like a home where I am the only dog or there are other small dogs around.
I like to snuggle on the couch, I travel in the car well, I’m still learning how to play with toys and I’m not sure yet how to walk on a leash. I need lots of practice still, but am learning a lot by hanging out with my foster buddies.
I need to put on a little weight, but I do enjoy my kibble, so that shouldn’t be a problem. I am a super snuggly, very sweet little guy. If you’re looking for snuggles, I’m your boy!
