Dachshund/Chihuahua

Adoption pending!

Why haven’t you adopted me yet? I’m awesome and you don’t know what you are missing out on!

I am a sweet Dachshund/Chihuahua double merle puppy. I was born on January 7, 2022 and am both blind (but can tell when a bright light is shined at me) and mostly deaf (but can hear very loud high pitched sounds – like my annoying foster sister!). I love to play with toys (the bigger the better) and other pups of all sizes. I can play for hours and have you laughing the whole time! I like to grab anything within my reach and hide it under the bed so you better put your shoes away! I really love to chew on bones so my foster mom tries to make sure that one is near me at all times! I will use wee pads if I have to go and you don’t get me out there fast enough. I live with a bunch of other dogs that need wee pads so I am spoiled that way. I promise to do my best to tell you when I want to go out. I just recently learned that I can bark when I’m not in my crate and that means a person will take me out. I don’t like being put in a crate, a small pen would be a better option of keeping me safe when nobody is home with me. I’m going to cry constantly when in a crate until I fall asleep. I will also scrape at my bed and the crate trying to escape.  My foster mom tells me that I would not make a good apartment puppy for that reason.

I don’t need a big yard but I do like being able to run around and explore. I have all my shots and next week my foster mom said that I’m getting snipped. I don’t know what that means but I’m not sure if I will like it.

I think that I would do well with children of all ages but younger children should be supervised because little fingers and toes taste even better than bones!

My favorite thing to do is snuggle. I like to have my neck and my foster mom’s neck touching. I just climb up on her shoulders or chest when she is sitting and nuzzle right up. I love sleeping in the big bed with her and all of my foster siblings too. The more the merrier but you had better make sure I have a blanket to burrow under! I also love to get and give kisses!

The only thing that I am missing is a forever home. If you adopt me you will never regret it! I’m cute, cuddly and I can make every day better just by being with you!

5/6/22: Bruiser is now fully vaccinated and ready to meet the world! He has been microchipped and has a clean bill of health.

Bruiser is a sweet Dachshund/Chihuahua double merle puppy. He is the brother to Beaker, another BDRA foster that will be available for adoption. He was born on January 7, 2022 and is both blind and mostly deaf (can hear very loud high pitched sounds). He loves to play with toys and other pups and can be a little rough with the dogs, but he is starting to learn to be a little more gentle. Bruiser likes to grab anything within his reach and hide it under the bed. He loves to chew on his bones so we try to make sure that one is near him at all times! He is working on being housebroken. He will use wee pads if he has to go inside. Bruiser does not like being put in a crate, a small pen would be a better option of keeping him safe when nobody is home with him. He will cry constantly when in a crate until he falls asleep. He would not make a good apartment puppy for that reason. Bruiser does not need a big yard but he does like to romp around. He will be getting his next round of puppy shots on 5/6/22 and then he will start to be leash trained and socialized with dogs outside of his foster home. I believe that he will do well with children of all ages but younger children should be supervised because little fingers taste even better than bones!

Bruiser is currently pending adoption!
