  Star, 5 1/2 years Female Long-haired Dachshund
Star Star

Star is a 5 and a half year old spayed female long-haired Dachshund (purebred) who was turned in because her owners work long hours and are starting to travel more frequently. She was raised with a Labradoodle and got along fabulously with him. She weighs around 30 lbs, so she needs to lose some weight. She was on a corn-based diet so the weight should come off quickly with a grain-free food and some exercise. She's a sweet dog. Her tail never stops wagging and everyone is her best friend. She's a quiet dog, not a barker. She likes sleeping on the end of the bed or on the couch and she can be a lap dog. She can be the boss of the other dog dog (which is typical for female dogs ), but has been very sweet and submissive with dogs she's met at Save A Dog. She has never been exposed to cats. She can last all day in the house, but no more than 6 hours without being let out. She was raised with teens. She is trained on the invisible fence. She loves to chase a ball and never tires of playing fetch. She was groomed regularly and sometimes wears little bows in her hair. The groomer said she was easy to handle and has a warm personality. She has been kept up to date on vaccines with annual vet visits. She is not on any medications. She was raised with teenaged boys. Please apply online if you would like to meet her as the likelihood of her being in a foster home is high. She would be a great dog for someone with teens or for an adult household with a male dog as that would closely match her current enviornment. She comes from a working family home so that would be alright as well.
