Widget is a very active standard Dachshund boy who got his coloring by being a double-dapple. Like many with that genetic combo, though, Widget is deaf. He has got some vision, but not very clear, and he is sensitive to bright sunlight so he should not be exposed to it for long periods of time. Widget is a high-energy boy who likes to play and run. He is a bit jumpy if he doesn't see someone coming, which is natural considering he can't hear anyone approach. Widget has a sweet nature- he likes to give doggie kisses and cuddle when he is in one of his relaxed moments. Widget is a large boy and is also vocal (he can't hear himself bark) so he is not a good choice for young children or apartments. Widget's foster is working with him on sign language. He is a smart boy and learns fast, but he is a youngster so it will take time and consistency for him to master them. In short, Widget is a good boy, a happy, energetic pet, and needs an adopter who will understand and appreciate him for what he is!
