CHARITY is a beautiful girl with long flowing hair! She is approximately 3 yrs of age, weighs about 20lbs and is believed to be a Long Haired Dachshund mix. CHARITY was dumped in a farm field with her 10 month old puppy. Animal services was called and she was captured and brought to the shelter where she was terrified so we pulled her from the shelter (and reunited her with her puppy that we caught because he ran away when Animal control captured and took his Mom away) A few weeks after getting CHARITY out of the shelter, it became apparent she was pregnant, and she gave birth to puppies in December. She was a great Mom and very protective of her pups! Now that her pups are gone CHARITY'S personality is shining through and she is ready to find the perfect home of her own! CHARITY is somewhat untrusting of strangers and needs slow introductions. Once she feels comfortable with you she is quite friendly and affectionate. She is a happy girl that has the cutest wiggle when she walks and watching her run through the grass can only bring a smile to your face! Her long locks make her look like she is a show dog, so she requires daily brushing and regular visits to the groomer. She is good in the bath. She does shed, so she is NOT hypoallergenic. CHARITY is fine with other dogs. She is fostered with both small and large dogs and loves running and chasing with the other dogs. She does not like the cats in her foster home and will give chase to them, so she is not suitable for a home with cats. CHARITY is housetrained but we believe she may have been pee pad trained previously because she will go potty on throw rugs or carpet. Her foster home has Luxury Vinyl and she is good on that surface. She also knows how to use a doggie door. CHARITY is crate trained but will also sleep quietly on a doggie bed....she does get warm easily so prefers not to have a lot of blankets. CHARITY is good on leash and rides well in the car. She would make a great companion for someone who enjoys outings like trail walking, beach trips or even some short hiking adventures. She is always up for fun activities and has the energy to go! She is definitely not a couch potato! CHARITY has no experience with children, and due to her fearful nature and some sensitivity to touch in certain areas, she is not suitable for a home with children. She will be best in a home with adults only. NO OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS.
