Mr. Darcy came to us when his elderly owner could no longer care for him. Unfortunately, he recently had to have bladder stone surgery and the stone analysis showed that the stone type he had will recur. So he will need to be kept on a prescription urinary care dog food (including extra water) and two different medications to keep his urinary tract healthy. Also, he will need regular x-rays and urinalysis done in order to detect the stones. If they are caught when they are small then they can be flushed out rather than require surgery. Mr. Darcy needs help with housetraining. He needs a very patient adopter who is experienced with dachshunds and willing to deal with him like you would train a puppy. Mr. Darcy loves food and weighed 28lbs when he lived with his elderly owner. He has been on a diet and exercise program at his foster home and has reached his goal weight..16.2lbs! Adopters will need to have a history of keeping their dogs slim and trim!

Mr. Darcy prefers women so we are seeking a female adopter for him. He enjoys car rides and walks well on a leash. He is energetic and happy and his weight loss has given him new pep! He really needs an at-home-adopter and good-sized fenced yard. He would do best as an only pet as he can be protective/possessive of his person and his toys, He takes time to warm up but is a sweet snuggly guy, to his person, once he lets his guard down. He really needs an adopter with a big heart to give him a chance. *** Mr. Darcy is being fostered in Maryland. All things considered, local adopters will be given preference to facilitate a home visit. Applicants must be willing to drive to Ellicott City, Maryland (10 miles south of Baltimore) to meet and adopt him.***.
