Danny and Lenny are a delightful duo who love their human family and each other. They may be  miniature dachshunds but have big personalities and even bigger hearts. They are happiest when they have human companionship throughout the day. So someone home most of the time would be ideal.

Penny is a family focussed girl who will lap up attention and all the cuddles you can give. And when its time to sleep she loves to burrow and snuggle into her blanket. Unlike Lenny, who will happily bowl up to greet strangers, Penny shows initial reserve. Lenny loves a good pat but can’t live his life without Penny. He shadows her every movement. Therefore this bonded pair must be re-homed together.

Currently Penny and Lenny live in a household with two other dogs. While they are friendly towards the resident mini poodle, they are becoming increasingly aggressive towards the aging kelpie. These tiny terrorists bark, snap and chase the kelpie until she retreats into her kennel. Penny and Lenny also bark at the next door neighbours dog. Sadly daily walks have been curtailed as Lenny lunges and barks at other dogs while on the lead.  In contrast, both dachshunds welcome small dogs who visit, and Lenny will roll over submissively when approached.

Penny and Lenny require commitment to obedience training and calm, assertive human pack leaders who set clear behavioural boundaries. As Penny and Lenny have a strong prey drive, they are cannot be homed with cats, birds or other small pets. However they are child friendly but are best suited to school age children.

If you can offer love, companionship, a home with indoor/outdoor access and a garden for sun baking, Lenny and Penny could be your perfect match.

They have been de-sexed and are up to date with their vaccinations.

Budd – Albury Wodonga – approx 9 kilos although has put on a little bit of weight! **ADOPTED**

Budd is a handsome three year old dachshund who desperately needs a special someone to help him to be the best boy on the block. Currently Budd’s reputation is tarnished after experiencing major changes in his life. Budd has become anxious, confused and is displaying undesirable behaviours. This includes three episodes of biting children and killing the family chook.

Budd’s barking has become problematic for both his family and neighbours. Budd does not like being left alone and protests by barking intermittently. Budd also cannot inhibit barking when triggered by loud sounds such the motor mower and when people or birds enter the back yard, an area he considers to be his own. After an incident where Budd discovered a snake he now barks in a frenzy at the garden hose.

Budd is not an easy dog to walk. He pulls on the lead while lunging and barking at people passing by. This escalates if he sees a dog. Budd loves his tucker, guards his dinner ferociously and steals his brothers food. It is not surprising he is now slightly overweight.

Despite all that is written, Budd is a loveable and loving dog. He enjoys receiving attention in the form of pats, belly rubs and scratches behind the ear. He loves a cuddle on the couch and sun baking in the backyard.

Are the person who could help Budd develop positive doggy behaviours? He will need an abundance of love, endless patience, and calm,assertive guidance during training across several months.
