Terrier / Dachshund Mix
Age: approx 6 months
Adoption Fee: $150 (includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations)
Stuart was turned in to the Hayward Shelter by a family that took him from another family that lived in Sacramento. The shelter said that he needed to go to the Sacramento shelter, but the family threatened to turn him loose, so the Hayward shelter took him. He was one of those puppies that we call “hot potato puppies” because they are passed around from one home to another until someone dumps them at the shelter. They never learn to bond with or trust people, so at the shelter they are very difficult to handle. The shelter called Nobody’s Perfekt Dogs to pull him into foster care.
He quickly bonded with his foster dad, then the rest of the family as time went on. He still has some “stranger danger” tendencies, but is responding well to socialization efforts. Otherwise, he is a very energetic, playful, curious puppy who is always underfoot. He gets along well with other dogs.
He would do well in a home with another young, playful dog(s) his size. He is a puppy, so training will be important.
