PJ (short for Pepper Jack) is a 5 mo. tricolor puppy Dachshund/terrier mix we estimate to be about 15-17lbs when full grown. He came from a hoarding/backyard breeder case from a rural shelter along with his brother (Pippy) and mom (Emma) (also available). When he was first rescued and brought to his foster home, he was incredibly shy and ran away if a person moved towards him. He was terrified of leashes and had no clue how to go on a walk. After a few days of building trust and coming out of his shell, he is now a super excited and playful lil’ guy! He still needs time to build trust, but once he does, he does not want to let his human go. He gets better walking on a leash every day and is completely crate trained. He knows to potty outside but needs to be let out frequently, since he is still young. He also needs lots of toys and bones since he is still teething. He LOVES being outside, playing, running around, and sun bathing. After playing outside, he gets tired and will just tucker out in the sun or on the couch for a few hours. He is such a sweetheart and needs that someone who will be patient with him. Once he is shown patience and love, he will be bonded to you forever.
