Patches and Storm are two young dachshund puppies who were born into rescue as their mama was being transported from Texas. They will need to be adopted together so that they can have a companion their age and size. Both are very small. They are very sweet, playful and highly energetic. Patches is deaf so having his sister around is a big plus. Adopters should willing to work on all the basics including housetraining, general house manners and walking on a leash and understand that doxies are not pocket pooches but rather big dogs in a little package! Because they are so young, they need an "at-home" adopter so they can grow up feeling secure. These puppies cannot be left for long hours. They will need a large fenced in yard because we all know doxies are hounds who love to investigate, dig holes and chase bunnies, birds, squirrels, mice and Mr. Groundhog if he is around! Absolutely no invisible or electric fences or tethers. Adopters must be willing to take them to puppy obedience class and provide daily walks and stimulation so they can continue to be properly socialized. No children or bigger dogs, please. They could easily be hurt because they are so small. Applicants must be close enough for a home visit. ****Applicant must be willing to drive to Ellicott City, Maryland (10 miles south of Baltimore) to meet and adopt Patches and Storm. Their total adoption fee is $550.****
