Cookie is an active, young Dachshund who lacks in confidence. Although he's only 8-months old, he has already gained some insecurities, including a fear of unfamiliar people and crowded places. He'll need adopters who will offer him a gentle approach and plenty of patience to begin building up his friendship. It will take multiple visits to our rehoming centre to get to know him, but if you give Cookie the time and space he needs, he'll reward you with his interactive character, and affectionate ways.
Cookie will need an adult-only family, living with multiple people so there is always someone to keep him company. He must be the only pet in the household as he struggles to share affection, and wants all the cuddles to be saved just for him! However, he does enjoy some social interactions with other dogs so would benefit from having a regular walking buddy. As a typical, spritely youngster, Cookie is keen to be out and about exploring. It is essential that he goes for his walks in less-populated areas, and at quieter times of the day so that he can avoid bumping into unknown people or dogs. Busy roadsides should also be avoided initially until he builds in confidence. Due to his reactivity around all that is 'unfamiliar', Cookie will be unsuitable to live in a block of flats. His ideal home would be somewhere quiet and peaceful, with a garden of his own and minimal visitors. Adopters who can offer him plenty of their time to support with his training and a consistent routine would be perfect.
