Morty SR* Dachshund Adult Male in Hartford, Connecticut

My story
Morty is a sassy, protective, and loving dachshund- very typical of the breed.

He enjoys long naps and is generally very calm and a perfect Netflix binging reading buddy.

Morty gets along well with other dogs, both medium and small and is looking for someone to provide love and comfort as he is an older dog (only 4 yrs old) who needs a loving home.

Morty is nervous/aggressive when he first meets people and can bite when he's scared, but its mostly because he is extremely loving and protective of his owners- which means, as all dachshunds do- he needs a family that are strong leaders.

It may take some time for him to trust his new owners and let them cuddle him. He does not like to be picked up but I believe that's a trust issue that will go away with time.

We do not recommend him being adopted by someone with young kids, better for everyone.

Morty is already neutered as he was previously adopted from ACS but when he was found his owners did not want him returned to them- cause they suck. But that is beside the point, he is a great great dog and very typical for his breed. He would love a family who is COMMITTED to him, who will socialize him slowly and give him the leadership so he knows he is safe and is not in charge ;)

He is about 15# full grown.

Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX)

Local adoption only as he needs more socialization work before being considered for out of state adoption.

If you have any questions or would like to adopt Morty SR*, please reach out to the adoption group directly. PetSmart Charities does not facilitate the adoption process. Thank you.
