Jackie is an absolute stunner! She’s a voluptuous strawberry blonde pin up model with eyes that break hearts. This super soft Velcro dog loves car rides, going for walks at the park, belly rubs and snuggles. She is a diva who sleeps in the big bed with her people and likes to have her dinner in bed too if you’ll let her. She is very mellow and calm, not a barker, and timid when encountering new sights and sounds. Jackie walks well on leash and isn’t dog reactive but was very cat reactive when she came upon a lanky stray on the other side of the street! She is doing well with her foster sibling dachshunds as well as bigger dogs at the park – but if they get too excited or jumpy, she will tell them to settle the heck down!
Jackie has not been in foster care long, so she is still learning the rules of the house as she reveals her personality. Her foster mom is working on getting her weight down with walkies and carrots for treats. She does go potty outside when brought out, but so far she’ll only go out to the yard with her foster mom at her side. She has not ASKED to go out herself yet. She’s had one accident in the house, and it was obvious she knew it was naughty to do so. Her foster mom thinks she’s probably house trained and is just unsure of the new home’s rules…working on this!
Jackie was given up for adoption when her beloved person went into an elderly care home. Her idea of a perfect life would be spending all day on a couch or easy chair, with a loving lap to snuggle partially on - as a full size standard, she doesn’t completely fit on a lap! Basically, Jackie is a sweet old lady trapped inside a beautiful young dachshund body, so a calm home, without younger kids to deal with, would be best for this precious girl.
If you’re looking for a best friend and companion to share all good things in life with and you’re an adult home with someone who stays at home a lot, please submit an adoption application for Jackie. She’s longing to have her own gentle person to love again…
