Hello, my name is Dahlia and I have come to stay in a family with two Dachshund foster sisters and a Dachshund-Pit mix foster niece, and I have loved getting to know them.​ There are no cats or young kids, so I don’t know how I would be around them. I have felt quite timid around my new family to begin with, but did feel brave enough to explore and wag my tail lots after a couple of days – I think they call that slow-to-warm-up. I just call it being a bit on the cautious side and needing to know people will be kind before I let my guard down too much. I am not one to play with toys, but I watch my foster siblings play, and we are treating one another kindly, with no arguments. I have let my foster parents know that I love belly rubs and sitting on laps for cuddles. I am very ready and happy to climb into my crate at night and I have only woken up in the night once when I needed to potty outside. Talking of which, I am getting into the potty break, feeding and nighttime toothbrush routines very well. I have very good manners in the house, have had no accidents and I do not bark inside or outside for that matter. I do have a charming, warm, under-my-breath sort of sound when I need to attract someone’s attention. My foster mum says it sounds like a very cute, muted Chewbacca! We go for walks around the lake near our house, and I walk well on the leash, though I do like to bound around when I smell exciting things. As I let my fosters get to see more of who I am, I’ll let them tell you more……..
