Wayne the Dachshund

Wayne the Dachshund

Wayne is a very handsome Isabella coloured Miniature Dachshund who has come via a breeder to find his retirement home. Wayne was previously used as a stud dog, he is still very young and only 2 years old. Wayne has previously lived in kennels but now in foster with multiple other dogs and mainly Dachshunds, he loves his friends and will need a kind resident dog(s) in his new home. Wayne is a happy boy who has adjusted to home life well, he is mild mannered and friendly and can’t wait to find his forever home. He is fully vaccinated, flea and worm treated, been castrated and had a scale and polish on his teeth with our vet.
