Penny is the sweetest three year old, wired hair, designer dachshund around! She is the size of a standard dachshund with a little longer legs, and weighs about 18 pounds. She seems to shed very little.
Penny came to DREAM because her previous owners had some family medical reasons arise, and they didn’t have the time needed for her. Penny is very smart and knows a lot of commands already such as: “No”, “Go lay down,” and “come” and she will also go into her kennel if you tell her to lay down.
She is fully potty trained and will go to the door and make a crying sound if she needs to go out. Right now Penny has four sisters to lay in the sun with, but she would rather be inside, and she doesn’t like to stay outside for very long, but she loves if you go outside with her! Penny’s favorite past time is sitting on the couch with you, and if you are busy she might go to her bed (kennel) and wait on you, or find a comfortable place on the couch. Penny would love to have someone who is mostly at home. She does well in the kennel while you are out, or I think Penny would be a good candidate to leave out in the house while you are gone during the day too. She sleeps all night in her kennel, but would love to sleep in your bed.
Penny loves to go on walks! She walks a little over a mile a day and could go longer. She loves people and other dogs and does not have a mean bone in her body. Penny does have a little anxiety when riding in the car. Penny has lots of love to give! And if you are looking for a friendly, smart family pet, she is the one for you!
