    ***URGENT*** Need foster anywhere in new england area (East Coast) Courtesy Post.....I am trying to help keep these two fur-babies together. Please read their story and if able to foster or adopt please call me or send me a text to this number 401-316-4865. Cooper - about 3 years old. Neutered. Dachshund-mix. Very smart dog. Housetrained. Knows sit and can shake paws both left and right. Will go into his kennel at the command 'go to bed.' Protective. Will let you know if anyone is outside the house and watches over the yard. Cooper is a very chill dog. Listens very well. Always comes when called. Gets along with other dogs and cats. He's ... (Read More)always so very eager to please! He's a handsome boy. We were told his mother is a dachshund, so he's short and long but that's the only part of him that looks dachshund. He's short and muscular. A big small dog. 26 lbs. Sometimes his the tip of his tongue sticks out when he's asleep. Loves to wrestle. He does not chew furniture at all. Does not potty in the house at all. Saved from the pound about 2 years ago. Not good with small children. Food aggressive. Chico - about 3 years old, chihuahua-mix. Rescued from the road in the middle of nowhere, a popular dumping place for unwanted pets. Was almost hit by a truck, but my husband stopped and saved him. Owners were never located. His back leg is crooked but it does not slow him down at all! He is a little lovebug. About 11 lbs. He loves to snuggle and be loved on. Very submissive except when it comes to his food. Best with children over age of 8 Both of these dogs are the absolute best of friends. They sleep together. They play, play, play together!!! They are so cute to watch chase each other and wrestle each other! Chico grooms his 'big brother' Cooper. They look like they could actually be brothers because their fur matches so well! They find comfort in each other. They just cannot eat food from the same bowl. They must be fed in different bowls. Otherwise, these two are the best of friends! The best of both worlds with Cooper being the smart, alert one who listens well and loves to be petted, and Chico being the silly little cuddlebug who just loves to squirm his way into your arms.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dachshund in Rhode Island
    Dachshund Dogs can make good pets in Rhode Island 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.

    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.
