My name is Oscar, my mom says that I am a handsome young man who for the most part minds my manners! I just want to sit on your lap or next to you so I can feel your love and warmth.
When my foster mom first picked me up, I had a horrific skin infection and it made me miserable, so miserable, that I bit my previous owners, which is why they decided to give me away. My foster mom and dad got me all tuned up and I am looking quite handsome if I do say so myself!
I am looking for a home that has only 1 other dog or no dogs. While the home I am in has a whole herd, I do not like to share the attention and am sometimes mean to the other boys in the house when they are getting more attention than me. My foster said that I needed to give you a list of pro’s and con’s about having me as your forever pup.
Pros: I love to snuggle and will want to sleep with you in the big bed. I love to play with toys and also know how to entertain myself I do my business outside, but if I am going to be left alone for long periods of time, I will use a piddle pad I do get along with other dogs (I have not been around cats)
Cons: ***I do have a bite history*** I will warn with a low grumble, huff at you, then growl, then show my teeth and if you do not stop, I will bite you. Please respect that I am sometimes not comfortable with being messed with because of my previous skin issues. Because of this, my new vet will need to know that I will need to be muzzled for any care including nail trims. Sometimes I am okay with taking a bath, other times, I am not at all okay with taking a bath and will try to bite you – again, I will warn you and give you a chance to let me have my space.
Please do not let my bite history scare you away from me, I am a cuddle bug with lots of love to give, but I need you to respect my space. I would like to go to a home where the people are dachshund savvy, understand that I can be temperamental and work with me to overcome my fears. I have come a long way since I have been at my foster home, and am willing to continue to learn what my people are asking of me.
Because my history – I must have a home without young children. Only families with no children or children junior high or older( who can respect his space and listen for his ques).
If you think I'm the boy for you, please apply today or let us know if you already have an application on file!
