Kids, here is Oliver. Mr. Oliver is a thoughtful and cheerful pup. He is a Dachshund.
He is crazy about tummy rubs. He has a favorite treat: birdseed.
Oliver is a devoted sidekick to humans (even though he sometimes can be just a little noisy).
But sadly, Oliver's human did not have enough money to take care of him. His human had no other choice than to put Oliver up for adoption.
The courageous Oliver never gives up hope, and is 100% convinced today is the day he'll be adopted. Oliver is a sporty, high energy dog. Oliver's crazily obedient nature makes him the ultimate family pup for a home with lots of action. Oliver is often "overly affectionate" and he is recommended for a home where he'll get lots of active playtime and tons of exercise.
He is already house broken and knows tons of tricks!
Things You Should Know Before Adopting Oliver
Oliver is a sporty, high energy Dachshund. Be ready for lots of action. Also, each dog breed has certain traits. Knowing a little bit about your dog's individual personality and breed personality will give you some clues about how to care for your dog.
There's a whole lot of Dachshund in this Shelter Pup!
Friendliness: Dachshunds are very lively, outgoing, courageous, and often times stubborn. They make excellent companion dogs and want to spend most of their time at your side, both indoors and out. Friendly, charming, and curious, Dachshunds are known for their affectionate nature and make great "lap dogs". Despite their small size, a loud bark makes them good watch dogs.
Grooming: Dachshunds are generally low maintaince and only require occasional soft brushing with a "hound mitt" and a bath every few weeks. If your pup has long hair, more regular brushing and grooming will be needed. You may even want to take your long hair pup to a professional groomer to get the right "look."
Health: Your Dachshund is prone to stomach aches, also known as bloat. Make sure your pup rests after eating or drinking and he'll feel great. Because of a dachshund's small size and long back, they need to be careful when jumping and playing. Make sure to teach your pup how to jump off the couch and go up and down the stairs safely.
