Sammy the Chiweenie

Sammy the Chiweenie

Sammy has been successfully rehomed and is a Dachshund mix, possible Chiweenie who was surrendered from a home with a young baby where he was unhappy with the changing dynamics of the new family member . He is very petite at only 2.5Kg but big in personality. Sammy can be quite vocal and stubborn. He would need a confident owner with similar breed experience. If Sammy is unhappy with something he will sometimes show his teeth. When he is moody his foster mum gives him his space, however it doesn’t last long and he will soon be back wagging his tails for cuddles. Sammy loves to sleep under a fleecy blanket and doesn’t like mornings. He would happily sleep under your duvet if you let him. Sammy loves to fetch a toy and play, but is easily upset by baby and young children noise. As a result he can only be rehomed where there are not any children or visiting children.
