Bruiser

Dachshund/Chihuahua

Available for adoption!

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!
