Randee is a sweet fellow!! He came to DRNA after living all of his 5 years on a puppy mill farm, where he stayed in a wire crate like the other 249 dogs at the mill. As you would expect, everything is new to him, but he is doing very well at adjusting after just over a week in his foster home. He has a great temperament and gets along with other small dogs. He walks pretty well on a leash, and his housetraining skills are improving. He really wants to be with people, and follows his new foster family members through the house quite happily. He likes to explore, and his new home will need to be doggie-proofed for everyone's protection. Randee likes everyone and everything and though he does sometimes still get scared, he is doing a great job of learning to be a dog and companion! Randee's adoption fee is $275.00
Update-----Randee clearly has not had love and attention and is tending to get possessive of the person who offers it to him. He will need an experienced dachshund human leader who can provide love but still give structure so Randee's possessiveness doesn't get out of control.
Update 8/28== Randee and Pixie seem to be good friends. They came from the same mill and probably were a breeding pair. They would enjoy being adopted together, though it is not mandatory.
Update 10/4-----Randee and Pixie need to stay together. They are continuously choosing to be near each other and it would not be fair to separate them. They are making good progress with their housetraining and other socialization skills and are a very nice pair. Temperaments are good though Randee is protective of Pixie with some people.
