My name is Tristan! I am a small purebred and weigh about 12-13lbs and although DRLA at first thought I was about 7 yrs old because of some grey whiskers on my chin, I might be younger (more like 4-5yrs old). Still waiting to hear back on that one. I'm also neutered and had a full dental - so my teeth are now pearly whites!
I have adorable platypus paws. They are giant, much bigger than my little legs, which gives me an adorable saunter as I walk. Think of me as the Fred Astaire of dachshunds. You know, Fred Astaire, the famous dancer of the 1930's who had famously big feet? I also have lovely short, red, chestnut fur. Foster mom says I'm quite handsome.
My foster calls a little "wiggle worm." I prance around, flop down on my back and wiggle around until I get a belly rub. It's the best! I was a bit unsure of this new place but with patience and love I warmed quickly. I'm definitely a snuggler. I also love to hang out in my crate (with the door open). It feels like my own personal den!
I also LOVE going for car rides. I'm great in the passenger seat as long as I'm belted in. I'm also great on walks and I'm also potty trained. I like to play hard and sleep hard. I'm all boy! I love to run around in the backyard. But I also like being near you. I'm also good at staying home while you are at work... so as long as you can come take me out for a mid day potty break, I will patiently wait for your return so we can go on a walk together! I will also be your faithful guard dog. I will let you know when another dog or person is out and about but I do settle down quickly.
I am waiting for my best friend! Won't you consider taking me, my floppy ears and adorable platypus/elephant paws home with you?
I need to let you in on a little secret.... I don't do well at adoption events. Foster dad said we should schedule a private meet and greet at my foster home or a mutually convenient place. Hope this works for you since I want you to see me at my finest!
If you are interested in meeting Tristan please complete an adoption application and schedule your home safety check so you are pre-approved.
