3 ½ months old
Retriever/dachshund mix
Tot is oh so sweet! He LOVES attention and pets and will happily let you snuggle him! He is always alway SO happy to see you and his tail never stops wagging. Don't let him being mixed with a smaller breed (or his short legs) fool you, this boy is athletic and will need regular exercise. He is currently just over 10lbs at 2.5 months old so he won't be a small small dog. He is an energetic boy who loves to play with other dogs smaller and larger than him. Tot can be vocal when he's left alone and doesn't want to be so he would not be a good fit for apartment living where he is left alone often or for long periods of time. Tot also demonstrates his athleticism by showing you that a baby gate will not stop him from getting to where he wants to go - so he will be a good candidate to continue crate training to keep him where you want him to be while you're gone. He has done well in a 3ft tall puppy pen though. He settles down in his puppy pen with his other siblings and sleeps quietly through the night, it only takes a little bit for him to calm down. He is being free fed right now and is good at grazing when he wants food. He shares toys well with all of his foster siblings. He is working on his potty training and like any puppy will need positive reinforcement and consistency to master this skill. If you want a little shadow to follow you around and brighten your day - Tot is your man!
