Dachshund / Terrier Mix
Age: approx. 3 years
Adoption Fee: $125 (includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations)
Terrence was dumped at the Oakland Shelter by a family that supposedly loved him, but not enough to keep him, we guess. He struggled with the shelter environment, able to only connect with the other dogs and eventually a couple of the staff members. He didn't trust strangers and seemed particularly apprehensive with men. After 3 weeks with only moderate progress, the shelter reached out to Nobody's Perfekt Dogs for rescue. He ended up in an all male foster home, where he needed to overcome his distrust of men.
The foster family reports that he is coming around very nicely. He is excellent on a leash and in public settings - interested in strangers, doesn't react to other dogs. He loves riding in the car, sitting next to his people. He is a lap dog at heart. He initially displayed some behaviors associated with insecurity, but within a few days those disappeared as he settled into his new foster home.
Terrence would be fine as the only dog as long as he has human companionship most of the time. If he is left alone for long periods of time, he needs a doggy companion. He is great on a leash and good with strangers. He would be a great dog to take to work.
