Precious with her Doggles – see below how active this girl is and what activities she does, but also what she will try next!!!!

Precious is an adorable black and tan Mini Dachshund. She is very active, loves to be with her humans and wants to get involved in anything you might be doing. If you have a riding lawn mower and she’s outside, she wants to ride on your lap which is why she has Doggles. She will get to try Kayaking too, so also has a Life Jacket. Precious loves to be kissed on the side of her face and she LOVES sleeping in. Since her foster mom doesn’t do mornings, sometimes they have to go in and get Precious up. This cute girl will thrive in an active home and love it if her new family has fun activities where she may stay active.

NOTES (any other pertinent information that will help you decide if you might be the safe, loving forever home):

“Precious loves to play! Our other dogs won’t play no matter how hard she tries. She enjoys fetching any ball and chewing on a Nylabone. When we are not home, she wears her Pro Collar and goes into our closet where we put a bed for her. Apparently she did this at her other home. At night she sleeps in bed with us wearing the Pro Collar. She is a “communicator”. When she wants something, she will let you know but you have to figure out what it is. Hungry? Go outside? Want to play? Pick me up? Etc. She does not bark when left alone. If you have a riding lawn mower and she’s outside, she wants to ride on your lap. Therefore, she has Doggles. We’re going to try Kayaking too and she has a Life Jacket! We just have to make sure she doesn’t get overheated. Precious loves to be kissed on the side of her face.

You will need to take her to the groomer or vet to have her nails trimmed. She does well with a Dremmel. Only habit she has is licking. With enough interaction and activity, this should stop.”
