Handsome Eleven is a loyal and affectionate dachshund who adores his family members. He shadows his owners throughout the day, eager to be included in their daily activities. Eleven has grown up with a resident toddler, showing patience and tolerance with not so gentle interactions. Eleven enjoys an active lifestyle that includes regular walks and swimming in the backyard pool. 

However, Eleven is a highly anxious boy who presents with fear aggression towards strangers and a need for constant companionship. Eleven’s owners limit the number of visitors as he constantly barks at them.  Although Eleven has received training with some improvements made, there has been little follow through in recent times. Trazadone is used to treat anxiety, and is given intermittently before certain events/activities (e.g. visitors, vet, etc.) 

Eleven’s life has been further compromised by a Grade 5 IVDD incident in March 2021. This was treated conservatively and successfully with chiropractic intervention. Eleven regained his mobility but when over exercised begins to show soreness in his back by limping. This seems to be exacerbated by jumping up and running up and down stairs in his current, two storied home.
