Rehoming – Profile
Gigi was signed over to us due to her previous owner no longer being able to keep her. Gigi lived with a French Bulldog who she loved but sadly she died due to illness.
Behaviour observations on site:
Gigi loves people and enjoys a good lap to sit on or play games! She can be a little shy with new people so will need to meet them at her own pace. When she first came to the centre, she was very scared and worried but she has gradually come out of her shell and is a funny little lady. She is eager to go out on a walk but gets quite overwhelmed and will stop walking, while she takes her surroundings in. She can be worried about things flapping in the wind, loud noises and can be tentative to go to the unknown. Her new owners would need to be patient and take things at her pace and allow her to do her thing until she feels safe. With time and patient her confidence will grow.
Gigi is happily handled by people she knows and is happy to have a harness put on.
Gigi loves to do zoomies and play with toys, her favourite is a squeaky pheasant. She likes to make a nest in her bed and roll around getting fuss from her trusted friends.
Gigi is a little concerned when she sees other dogs and will want to go in the opposite direction. Her new owners will need to help her build her confidence around dogs.
We reserve the right to remove a reserve at any stage of the adoption process if we believe it is in the best interest of the dog.
Gigi has no medical concerns that we are aware of. She will be spayed before she goes home. Adopters should be aware that Dachshunds can commonly suffer from leg and backs issues due to their short legs and long body. It is important that new owners take the potential vet costs into consideration before putting in an application. Pet insurance is essential with this breed.
Adopters should consider that previous medical conditions will now not be covered by insurance. Adopters are responsible for the on-going medical costs once the animal has been adopted.
