Schnauzer, Basset Hound Mix
Unsure but probably ok
Hi there! My name is Dandie and I’m one daper gentleman looking for the perfect home that will embrace me for the unique fellow that I am.
To the people I know and trust I am the most loving, silly, joyful boy. I love nothing more than to cuddle for hours, receive belly rubs, and just be close to you. I also walk great on leash, am fully house trained, don’t bark much, don’t seem to have any separation anxiety, and have never been destructive. My foster mom says I have enough personality to fill any room, and between my tiny legs, oversized body, and all my funny antics I’m bound to make you laugh every single day.
Speaking of those tiny legs of mine, they are great for cruising under the coffee table, but after about 20-30 mins of walking I’m all tuckered out. I really do love my walks, but long hikes and strenuous activities are just not my thing. I am very content taking a few leisurely walks a day and then napping next to you for hours. I love going to the park and I am very dog friendly. Sometimes I get a little over excited on leash when I see new dog friends walking by, but I’ve gotten a lot better already and I am very treat motivated and trainable. I am a very easy going guy and could happily live with other dogs big or small, but also would be just fine living on my own.
Unfortunately, I have not had the easiest life, and people have not always been kind to me. Because of this I do come with a few quirks. One of those is while I love all the pets and cuddles from my people, I do have some very strong feelings about places I do not want to be touched, like my feet. I’m also not one to shy away from new people and don't even mind them coming over, but I do not appreciate them trying to touch me before I am ready. Like most other things in my life, I do best when everyone is aware of and respects my boundaries. I am very clear about what these are, and will always give you plenty of warning if you are crossing one, however I am looking for a family who will be very respectful of my limits so children are not a good match for me.
It’s true I do have a few quirks, but basically if you can respect where I liked to be touched and help me meet new people in a way I feel comfortable I really am the chilest, most low maintenance dog around. My foster mom says I'm one of the easiest fosters she's ever had because I'm so jolly and able to just go with the flow. I am looking for a family who will commit to my ongoing socialization and training, and one where someone will be home with me most of the day. So if you are looking for your ride-or-die, nap partner extraordinaire, lowrider best friend then look no farther than me!
