Hello there, my name is Zuni Sun! I'm an 11 month old dachshund mix with a ton of love to share. While I'm nervous at first with new people, given some time I will become your best friend ever. I'm looking for a family, preferably with a dog for me to play with, who isn't looking for a dog to take places.... since I'm shy, I'm a bit of a homebody. I will say that while I am not a big fan of kids, older, consideration kids who are patient with me could be very fun. I have been working on going places, but I have to take it slow because it can be really scary for me. My foster mom loves to watch me play with toys by myself because I'll hop around and flip them in the air and chase them. She say s I'm silly. I LOVE to play rough with other dogs and really enjoy wrestling and running. I don't chew up toys, but I love to chew on chewies. I'm working hard on my house training and making progress, though I'll need reenforcement. I DO know how to use a doggie door! I don't love the crate, but I quiet down after a few minutes... I'm very polite if I get to sleep in the big bed, though. I enjoy following my foster mom around the house and cuddling with her and other dogs, every chance I get. I have a strange bark for a dachshund, but it just makes me more unique! I'm very clumsy but pretty smart, so I keep my foster family on their toes. You should see me get excited and bounce around clumsily--- I am a laugh a minute. Submit your application at and we can be best friends!
