And now a few words from me:
Hi! My name is Tony, better known as Tony the Tank. Okay, so I`m a little overweight, but I`m working on it. I love to play fetch with my foster family. I usually end up wearing them out and then we all get to flop on the couch together for a nap. I share the house with another dachshund. We didn`t get along at first, but now we are laying on foster moms lap together. I would love to go out for a walk, but this cold weather is not for me. I prefer to get into the big bed and cuddle up with foster mom. All and all I like to think of myself as a pretty good doxie that`s just looking for a family to love me.
And now a few words from my foster mom:
Tony is adjusting to his life with his foster family very well. He is a really smart and obviously a good looking guy. Tony knows his commands and listens very well. He will sit and only take his food when told. Tony would play fetch all day, which is great for his weight loss program. He is 100% housetrained. Tony is fairly vocal, he likes to let me know when anyone walks by or comes to the house. He is very nervous and timid around men but is slowly starting to warm up to foster dad. Tony is great with older kids, but does not like smaller children. Tony does not like his crate, but doesn`t mind his bath, he will go upstairs, but not down, and he enjoys a good car ride. I believe anyone will be very lucky to add Tony to their family.
