Say hello to Mama! She is 12 years old and weighs about 15 pounds. Mama is sweet, playful and a true cuddle bug! She is crate trained and when it is time to go in her crate she gets right in because she knows she's getting a treat! Like many dachshunds she can be a bit stubborn when it comes to leash walking. She doesn't like to go far but loves to sniff all the new smells! Mama is 99% house trained butå%A0will have anå%A0occasional potty accident when she hasn't spent enough time outside. Like all dachshunds she will need to be confident in her environment to have good potty habits. All rescue dogs go thru a period of adjustment so understanding and patience is important. She does not bark or go to door to be let out so it is important her new family helps her become in the habit of going outside every 2 hours or so. Mama does well with children of all ages and small dogs. Mama seems a bit uncomfortable with large dogs getting too close to her so she would do best in a home with dogs close to her own size. Mama has not been cat tested, however, her foster mom believes that doesn't have a high prey drive and this would likely mean she would do well with a kitty. Like most seniors she gets an A+ in sleeping. When she's not taking a snooze she enjoys chasing after squeaky toys and chewing onå%A0elk horns and being a happy girl in her foster home in Maryland. Mama doesn't seem once particularly submissive or dominate but has let å%A0her foster fursister know she doesn't want to play by barking at her. Like many dachshunds she is pretty independent but will occasionally cuddle with her fursister.å%A0 Mama loves to be covered in blankets and sleeping in the big bed. She would love a forever home where she can continue with her big bed privileges. She does very well on car rides and would make a great travel buddy!å%A0 Mama came to GetALong Dachshund Rescue with dry eyes and/or allergies. She has been taking medication which å%A0helps with her runny eyes and itching. She has a slight thyroid problem and takes a small dose of medication daily. Mama is a charming lady and is looking for someone special to love. Apply to adopt Mama today!
