    Oscar is a one year old, 11 pound Chiweenie (Chihuahua/Dachshund). He is a typical pup who loves to play and cuddle. Oscar loves toys and he loves to fetch. He can often be found wandering around with a ball in his mouth and can chew on them for hours. Oscar loves to spend his quiet time cuddling on your lap and wants to be near his people. At bedtime he likes to snuggle close to his human and sleeps all night. Oscar didn't have much life experience as a baby. He is shy and needs a little time to get comfortable in new surroundings with new people. If you are patient and will give him the time to settle in (with lots of treats) he will be ...

Oscar would probably like a home with older children who understand him and can give him space when he needs, but also someone who will spend time playing fetch. Oscar would be happy to be an only dog or would do well in a home with a sister. Oscar wants to play with cats but, can be redirected easily. A fenced yard for him to safely run and play would be ideal. Oscar came into rescue as an owner surrender. His family ditched him for a new puppy.

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.

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. Dachshunds are often referred to as wiener dogs because of their shape. Queen Victoria was fond of Dachshunds.
