Meet Marvelous Maura! She's a very sweet 10 year old Dachshund who weighs 14.5 lbs and is heartworm negative. She came to us from a shelter in New Orleans but we don't know how she came to be there. We just know she is very thankful we rescued her when we did. She is currently in a foster home with several other dogs and she gets along well with them all, especially her other 'Doxie' friend. That said, we don't feel she needs to be in a home with another dog and would do just fine as the only dog in the house. Maura is a 'People Person'!! She loves human company whether she is curled up in your lap or on a blanket beside you. In short, she is just a total Love Bug! She doesn't show any preference about being outside playing with other dogs but she does love to find a sunny spot to relax in. Maura is just very laid back and quiet and would probably do best in a quieter house with somebody that's going to be around to give her a lot of love and attention. We think she would be ok with older children but not smaller children because of her age and temperament. She has not been tested with bigger dogs but we think she would be fine as long as they're not real hyper. She hasn't been tested with cats either. Dachshunds usually like to chase cats in our experience but, given her age and temperament, she would probably be OK with them. Maura is doing very well with her potty training and as long as she's taken out on a regular basis, she is fine. Being a typical Dachshund, she loves food! She is very treat motivated, which is a good thing if you want her to learn new things! Maura likes the simple life. A warm sunny spot to lay out in, a soft blanky, some food and plenty of love and she'll your friend for life! Come see if this is the girl for you!
