DOOBIE

Dachshund, Mix

An adotable dog in Millerstown, PA

  • Adult
  • Small
  • Male



HI. I am Doobie, a 6 year old miniature dachshund, weighing about 8lbs.

I arrived here about a week ago because my previous owners stated that I was peeing everywhere and biting people. I will admit, when I first arrived here, I WAS grumpy and growled and did not act very nicely. But the folks here have been very nice and patient with me and they did a GREAT, but simple thing for me; they treated me for fleas, which I was infested with. Now that those horrible, nasty bugs have stopped biting me all the time, my mood changed significantly. I no longer growl and try to bite at people! HOWEVER, I am not happy to share my food and treats! The wonderful people here take me for walks and that is very nice! Regarding the "peeing on everything" statement, I have not peed anywhere inappropriate since being here. I get along well with the other dogs here and I would probably get along well with older children. I will bark and howl with the other dogs, but for the most part I am quiet. I am scared of storms and will bark out of fear during those. I enjoy rolling around in the grass. I like that I am a happy man now! I may need you to give me patience so I can get to know you and feel safe with you, but given time I will be your lap warmer and we can take strolls together! Have a nice day and call about me soon!
