Biography
Van here and not for nothing I have a brand new story...well it's OLD to me but I think it's new to my wonderful and loving DRNA foster folks. First off, I was surrendered to them because I had been the "baby" at my former owners' home my entire life from puppyhood but then they had a human baby of their own and things went downhill from there. Well let me tell you I am the sweetest most adorable lovable but until now SUPREMELY MISUNDERSTOOD part dachshund part Australian shepherd mix. I am intelligent, I am handsome, I love my person, I do NOT care for most other dogs especially if they are on my turf, I have a high prey instinct and I love to chase cats and squirrels. I despise being crated and I have some food and toy aggression...right now I am in a home with other dogs and a cat and a foster mom I love...I am needy and I cling to her. We tried introducing me to some potential adopters but I sort of lost control with another much smaller dog they were adopting so that was the end of that. WHAT DO I NEED? I need to be on a farm...I am a herding/hunter dog! Dogs like me go after other animals if not trained properly and obviously I have not been. I am going to be working with a trainer this week but the environment I am in is SO WRONG for me... I look more like a dachshund but act more like an Aussie. I need a strong pack leader human to train me and love me in that order and NO CHILDREN. I am told that shelters are FULL of Aussies just because we can be so tough but Foster Mom can tell you how great the rewards are. Let us hear from you soon...Woof and I love being in your pack already!!!
