Breed: Dachshund Chihuahua
Apple is almost 6 months old. She is a beautiful little dog, very affectionate and loving. When she arrived at 12 weeks old, she was terrified of people. She is still that way. She loves who she knows, but new people are not in her good books, until she gets to know them on her own time - and gets to know she can trust them. She is not a dog who can be grabbed, or a dog who would allow people to maul her cause she is so cute. Humans must respect her space, and let her come to them when she is ready. She needs proper patient socialization with lots of people.
A home that forces her to interact with them will destroy her already shaky confidence, and can create greater problems in regards to her fear. Apple loves dogs and cats, she does not like pushy dogs that are too bounce off the walls, she has the confidence to put those dogs in their places. Apple would not be good with children of any age, an adult home only will be chosen.
Apple is almost fully house broken, and is very good with using peepads if I am out too long. Her adoption fee is $495.00 an adoption application and home visit is required. We will not be making quick decisions for her, and would like to explore all home options to choose the best for Apple. She is fully vaccinated, dewormed, and will be spayed and microchipped prior to placement in her forever home.
