Hello! My name is Axel. If you are looking for a sweet 8-10 year old, 11-pound male Dachshund who loves to snuggle, I’m your boy. I love people and do well with other dogs, but I don’t yet know how I feel about cats. I’m a little smaller than some Dachshunds and I am just adorable — or at least that is what my foster mom says! I have no known health issues, other than dental disease, but that will be resolved after my dental this week. I’m great on a leash, so I do not require a fenced yard. And though I can sleep all night in a crate with no complaints, I’d be happy as a lark to crawl in bed with you.

I like to take short walks and at times play with toys; but because I’m an older, low-key dog, I mostly want to cuddle. I’d like it too if you had another dog around my age, size and temperament so I could snuggle with them when you are away, but I’d be just as happy if it were just us. I’m mainly looking for someone to show me the kind of love I didn’t always get in my life before. I hope that person is you.

I’ve been neutered, microchipped, and I’m up-to-date on heartworm, flea protection and had all appropriate vaccines. My adoption fee is $100.
