Tessa, dachshund and smooth fox terrier mix
Tessa is a winsome female dachshund and smooth fox terrier mix being cared for at Bella Vita Rescue.
Tessa's ideal forever home would be a dog-free environment. Bella Vita Rescue recommends Tessa be placed in a home without small children. She's vaccinated, spayed and house-trained.

Tessa is a little pistol! She's loving and a loyal companion when she's with her human. She's very slow to warm up and gets highly agitated by commotion and loud noises (barking, fireworks). Her ideal home would be quiet, with calm adults, no children and no other pets.
