Agnes the Dachshund

Agnes the Dachshund

Lovely little Agnes is a part wire haired Miniature Dachshund who has been surrendered from a breeder to find her retirement home. Aggie is very petite and naturally stays on the slim side, she weighs only 3.5kg but we are hoping she will gain some weight post spay surgery and when she’s settled in her new home. Agnes is naturally a busy little dog, she loves being around people and her tail doesn’t stop wagging. Agnes has been spayed, had a booster vaccination and a full dental where her teeth were given a scale and polish (no extractions). Agnes has a lovely scruffy coat which needs only minimal attention, she carries the wire haired coat and has a lovely little beard. She is good at being handled and brushed and has just discovered toys and wanting to play.

We are currently very busy and rescue spaces are extremely limited – PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF YOU HAVE HOLIDAYS BOOKED OR ARE NOT IN A POSITION TO FINALISE THE ADOPTION IN GOOD TIME – we have a huge waiting list which we are constantly juggling as we hate turning away dogs in need. Please tell us about and breed experience on your application form.
