Hi! My name is Yumi (meaning ‘beautiful’ in Japanese) and I am a beautiful red, standard girl, with a touch of dapple on my ears. I am 8 years old, and I was surrendered by my owner to a animal shelter until the nice folks at CDR rescued me. Don’t let my age fool you! I am a perfect mix of a grown up dog with the spunk of a puppy when it’s time to play! l love to chase balls, play with squeaky toys, and go walks (especially when it is warm outside); in fact, I regularly walk an hour + with my foster parents and would make an ideal exercise partner.
I am a high energy and independent girl that is housetrained. I also bond with humans and love men; I will follow you around the house if given the opportunity! I love the car and going for rides with my ears flapping in the wind. I know a lot of commands, like sit, stay, come, and of course the dreaded command “leave it”.
My foster mom says I am a friendly, fun loving pup; sometimes strangers make me nervous and I will bark but I am working on this insecurity and when this happens my foster mom reminds me of my manners and I am able to calm down and sit. Having never lived with another canine and never being properly socialized with other dogs, I am in training presently and doing extremely well. I am looking for a child-free home with humans who will give me structure, confidence and a lot of exercise.
I do have a lot to offer to the experienced dachshund owner – let’s meet and see how quickly I can melt your heart!
