And now a few words from me:
Hi! I’m Bandit an adorable Dachshund cross. I love to run, play with toys and play with my foster dog buddies. I can be shy when I first meet you, but I come out of my shell quite quickly as I love attention! I suffer from separation anxiety, so I do cry and whine when I’m left alone and sometimes when I can’t see you. I’m improving though, and have come to realize that my crate is a great place to sleep! I’m excited to find my forever home… would you like to meet me?
And now a few words from my foster family:
Bandit is a fun little dog. We are working on his separation anxiety issues and he is slowly improving. He will need a firm owner to keep him on track with his progress. He has been growly a couple of times when he was testing the boundaries, which is why he will need someone who will continue to be firm with him. He is nervous when first meeting new people, but loves to be petted and loves food, so it’s easy to get him to come out of his shell. He loves to run, play and generally be silly, which means he’ll be a great addition to his new home!!
