Dachshund / Terrier Mix
Age: approx 6 months
Adoption Fee: $150 (includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations)
Marco was brought to the Hayward Shelter as a stray with another dog. Marco was very scared and shy. Shelter staff were unable to extract him from his kennel. They put a carrier in his kennel where he would hide out. If someone approached the kennel door, he would leave the carrier, bark for a while then retreat back into the carrier. This went on for a couple weeks before the shelter asked us to pull him into foster care.
Once Marco left the shelter, he calmed down and bonded quickly with our rescue volunteers and his foster family, including their small dog. Marco has a little bit of separation anxiety issues, but being a young puppy, he may grow out of it.
He is a sweet dog, that needs to go to a home with another friendly, confident dog his size.
