My name is Van and I am (not to be immodest, mind you) the most handsome and distinguished looking nine year old long haired boy imaginable. My colors and markings are quite something and I have one blue eye so maybe a wee bit of dapple! I am nervous and shy at first in a new environment but I am so smart and so loving I quickly (okay after a bark fest adjustment period LOL) warm up and go into exploratory mode. I LOVE my new foster home and foster mom, and I get along well with her other dogs but I chase the cats to kingdom come and back so no cats for me. Since I was an only dog and since I now have several doggie siblings Foster Mom thinks that one dog buddy would be just right and in fact a good requirement. No babies or toddlers they make me nervous, but older gentle kids who understand dachshunds are fine. I like to cuddle and I have no toy or food aggression. I love to play fetch and tug of war. I am potty trained and I will sleep in a crate if forced to do so but hey, I like the big bed..I have a fenced in yard at Foster Mom's but I also good on a leash and I love long walks where I can fantasize about chasing bugs, birds and squirrels! In short I am spunky for my age! Just got a dental so I am good to go. In conclusion, Foster Mom says I am very intelligent and she can tell when she looks into my eyes and calls my name and gives me a command I understand what she is saying and I obey which is pretty doggone great since I just got here! Adopters should be wiling to meet me and Foster Mom prior to adoption; we are in Richmond VA. Please send us an email and fill out an application if it sounds like my forever home could be with you. Woof and I love you already!
