M | 3 Y | Dachshund Mix | Texas | Low energy | Afraid of men | Apprehensive/Protective | Good apartment dog | Ok with other dogs | Not cat or kid tested
Meet FONZI – another member of our Dachshund gang from Texas! FONZI loves the ladies. He’s very comfortable with his female foster and seems completely at ease when it’s the two of them. He is however very afraid of men and is a totally different dog. He’ll definitely need a home with a female that he can bond with as he works to overcome his insecurities. FONZI is timid but is opening up more and more every day and will need a patient owner to build his confidence. He would do best with experienced owners who can help him realize what a little stud he is! He’s pretty low energy and goes for a 20 minute walk in the morning, short walk mid-day and then another 20 minute walk before bed. He’s good on leash and is actually much more confident outside. He is currently being treated for fleas/mange and for this reason has not had experience meeting other pets. He’s super friendly and interested in meeting new people on walks and seems pretty indifferent to other dogs. He is completely fascinated by squirrels and birds though! Inside he’s more hesitant to meet new people and is very protective of his female foster and his space. He’d be a great apartment dog as he’s super chill and pretty quiet. He’s crate trained and potty trained but will need help with basic commands. FONZI hasn’t been tested with cats or kids but due to his timid nature might not good in a home with young kids.
