Sophie – Female Dachshund Mix
Congratulations to Sophie who has been adopted!
Sophie is an absolute doll who is excited to find her forever home! She had a rough beginning but still maintains a positive attitude and has so much love for those around her.
She’s fine with other dogs and older children who are “dog friendly”, but as a Dachshund, she definitely has some

Please enjoy some information on the fascinating Dachshund breed.
The Dachshund is curious, clever, lively, affectionate, proud, brave and amusing. Devoted to its family, it can be slightly difficult to train and housebreak, but not impossible. Dachshunds travel well. This little dog needs an owner who understands how to be his pack leader or he will take over the house, and begin to try and tell the owner what to do.
If the dog is allowed to take over, many behavior problems will arise, such as, but not limited to, guarding furniture, separation anxiety, guarding food, toys or other objects, snapping, biting and obsessive barking. It will become unpredictable with children and adults they do not know.
If it gets really bad, it may become unpredictable with its owner. Dachshunds are usually recommended for older, considerate children, simply because most owners do not display proper pack leadership to small dogs, causing moderate to severe protectiveness, a behavior that can change if the humans start being their pack leader. If they do get the proper leadership, they can get along well with children.
