Jeff the Standard Dachshund
Jeff is a 3 year old standard smooth haired Dachshund. He is a beautiful big strong boy currently weighing 12Kg. We are currently trying him walking with a number of different methods. His walking is improving and he will need a calm and confident owner. Jeff is currently in foster with lots of other dogs but can be nervous meeting new dogs and new people so will need time and patience. Jeff cannot be homed with children or visiting children, as when he is nervous he can growl and bark. In the right environment Jeff can be a very loving dog who loves attention and cuddles on the sofa.
Colour – Black and Tan
Microchip number and company – Jeff is chipped and this will be transferred to the new owner
Known medical conditions – none
Neutered – Jeff is castrated
Good with cats – Not tested
Good with kids – Jeff cannot be homed with children or visiting children due to his nervous nature. We don’t routinely rehome with young children (under 16) as most of the dogs who come to us have health or behavioural issues. We will rehome with children if the dog is a puppy.
Travelling in the car – travels fine in a car
Housetrained – Jeff may need reminding in his new home
Lead walking – Jeff is a very strong boy and will drag and pull, much sgronger than a 12Kg dog might be. We have been working on this with some success but he is not for the faint hearted. He needs a firm confident owner to work with him.
Recall – Not tested
Crate trained – Jeff is happy in his crate overnight and for short periods during the day.
Current diet – twice a day; no observed allergies
Meal routine – twice a day
