Adoption Update!  This two were adopted and have a new family go play with in Port St. John, Florida!  Congrats!

This is courtesy post by TDL’s Canine Connect.  Becky, who lives in the Atlanta area is trying to find a home for her Dachshunds.  Here’s what she shared with me:

Dear Gisele,
I was given your name by my student Steven’s mom, Terri .
I am the mom of two little dachshunds. The one on the left is Cowboy (6yr), the one on the right is his little and younger sister Beatrix (5 yr). I moved out of my big suburbia house in January of 2012. I took the doxies with me, and they kept me very good company.  The doggies are dear, but it turns out that after a year of living on my own, and almost a year of being officially divorced, I am not making ends meet. These little guys are cuties, but because I travel so much, I have come to the realization that I should try to find them a new family. Maybe someone with little children who will want to pet and brush them.  Or a retired couple like my parents who could have fun teaching them tricks and establishing some routines. Beatrix is also not opposed to being pushed around in a dolly carriage or wearing hair bows. Neither mind being carried around by children, but Cowboy is too heavy for it.

Beatrice and Cowboy

They are all up to date on vet stuff, heartworm med, and flea prevention. Cowboy (20 lbs, I think) is relaxed and friendly, wags his tail when meeting new people and dogs in the neighborhood, generally likes other dogs at dog park. He will jump on the couch (as you can see) but does not attempt to jump on beds because they are too high. I think that tells a little about his relaxed personality. He is content to go under the bed. He likes chewing stuffed animals, but shreds them up and fluff gets everywhere (my mom’s doxie knows how to chew without destroying them.) He doesn’t chew up shoes or other valuables. He likes to sleep in the bed with me and Beatrix, but you have to lift him up there. Cowboy will protect his treasured bones, and does not like it when someone tries to take them away from him.   He isn’t territorial that way about other things, like his food or his human family members. He is well house trained.

Beatrix is the one everyone gravitates toward, because she is so little, 12 pounds. She looks like a little fox or deer. She is named after Beatrix Potter who painted little animals. She is more shy. When seeing other dogs, she is the first to bark. She acts like she’s defending us, and then hides behind my legs if we stop to talk. She is more adventuresome about climbing-once jumped up from the back of the couch onto the counter!  Beatrix is generally more cuddly. She will come sit on you or near you on the couch and jumps in bed with me every nite. In cold weather, she likes to go under covers and keep my feet warm. Cowboy will go too. It’s cute. Beatrix is not as consistent on house training. If she is left to wander the house when I’m gone, she often pees on carpet. Sometimes poos, but that is easy to clean up. If I leave them in my room, she is much better about it. I think she views it as her crate. But not 100% guaranteed. That is another problem with keeping them. If I move, I do not want to have to pay pet deposit. If they are on hardwood or linoleum (no carpet) no problem. 
They have to go together, because Beatrix goes nutty if left alone and Cowboy isnt’ there (scratch paint off of door, figure a way to break out of dog gate). Another thing they do that is cute is groom each other, licking each other’s face.  I know doxies aren’t your usual. Just got your name and thought I’d give you a holler. I can keep them until the right spot is found, and if it doesn’t work out, I’ll take back until another possible fit comes along. thanks for your time. ~ Becky
