Hi! I'm Charlie. Foster Mom is speaking for me, but she wishes I could really talk. You see, I was surrendered to a kill shelter by my former owner. And I came with a frayed muzzle because they said that I nip when I'm scared. Luckily,
DRNA took me in. Since they busted me out, I've been hanging out at a house of chaos, and I am totally chill. You see, there are two giant dogs and two little dogs at this house. I think they are all fine. I play with the little ones. And there is a small person here whom I adore, although I did growl at her once when she got a little in my face, but that's what I'm supposed to do. Growls are warnings. I did not nip. And I met a dozen other little people on the street and I thought they were all cool. So, I can't tell you about my past, but my future is looking bright! I like to cuddle. If you've got a couch where I can perch on your shoulders behind you, that would be ideal. And the big bed is the place for me at night! I seem okay with being crated. I seem to be at least mostly housebroken. I'm happy to wander in a fenced-in yard but leash walks would be fine as long as I get enough exercise. I'm young and spry and have a decent amount of energy. Oh--I do have one bad habit. I jump off of high things. Foster mom
says that will ruin my back. So, that needs to be discouraged. I also like to climb on furniture. Foster mom already caught me checking out the kitchen table. I haven't been here long enough to show if I'm a barker, but foster mom has an inkling that since I'm a dachshund, I will at least go nuts at things like doorbells. Of you're interested in some serious cuddles and serious fun, let's chat!
