    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] Kobe is a long haired miniature dachshund that weights 8-9 pounds. Kobe has been diagnosed with epilepsy and is on 2 different medications for it. Kobe still has a few seizures a week. Our schedules have changed and Kobe now spends most of the day in a kennel and has separation anxiety. Kobe will poop and pee in the kennel. When we are home with Kobe he mostly lays around and prefers to be on my lap or the couch next to me. Kobe sleeps in bed with me and likes to lay next to my body under the blankets. Kobe enjoys going for walks and playing in short bursts but is very happy just laying on my lap all day.

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-11-00538Gulliver aka Gully (male)

Dachshund    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Seizures,

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] We have had Gully since 8 weeks old, he's now 12 years old. He has always been very well cared for & for whatever reason he has always been agressive towards men especially. He has nipped at several people & now that we have a baby we cannot take the chance that he may nip her. Gully's dream would be to sit on your lap all day. He is the cutest thing ever & was our first 'baby' but we can't take the risk of him nipping the baby. He's very loyal & protective of his masters but will take a while to warm up. He is approx. 10 lbs & in great physical health.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dachshund in Iowa
    Dachshund Dogs can make good pets in Iowa if they match your IifestyIe. The Dachshund is a long, short-legged dog with a temperament similar to that of a terrier. Dachshunds are cheeky, playful, mischievous, and resistant to training or discipline. Dachshunds do well with older children. Dachshunds are well suited to apartment life but need exercise, and it is important that they not be overfed as this breed is prone to weight gain.

lnteresting Dachshund Trivia Low-Cost Iowa Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Dachshunds are good travel companions. Dachshunds are named for Dachs, the German term for Badger, which these dogs were bred to hunt. The short legs of a Dachshund are well suited for digging and getting inside badger burrows. Dachshunds are often referred to as wiener dogs because of their shape. Queen Victoria was fond of Dachshunds.
