Hercules – 5 years 4 months, Southern NSW * GOING ON A MEET AND GREET – APPLICATIONS CLOSED*

Hercules has a big personality radiating from his miniature dachshund body. He likes to be ‘boss man’ and takes his duties a little too seriously. As protector of the property and of the family, Hercules will bark loudly to deter passers by, perceived intruders and even guests. If people continue to approach him while ignoring warnings, Hercules may nip. He has done this twice. However once visitors have been  given the seal of approval, Hercules will very quickly want to be their new best friend.


This young boy has a heart full of love for his special human. Hercules enjoys cuddles and a morning snuggle in the bed. He is a smart boy who knows how to sit, shake hands and can almost complete a sausage roll. Hercules loves his toys, swimming in a dam and river and sadly, hunting lizards. An active person or couple who enjoy walks and outside adventures would suit him perfectly.


If you are looking for a loyal, loving companion, can commit to further training, and are home most of the day, Hercules might be just be the dachshund for you.


Please note that Hercules is only suitable for a quiet household with mature adults and no other dogs or pets.


If you are interested in Hercules please complete an application form available on our website or if you are already on our waiting list, please email yvette@dachshundrescue.com.au
