Rocky, dachshund and poodle mix
Rocky is a male dachshund and poodle mix being kept at Central Texas Dachshund Rescue.
Rocky is a social animal, and he'll get along great with other dogs. He is neutered, and he has had all his shots. Good news: He is already house-trained.
Rocky's current caretakers say:
Rocky was found as a stray in the North Texas area and was taken to a local shelter where he waited for his family to come and get to take him back home. When that did not happen, CTDR was contacted and there was no way we were going to let a senior gentleman spend one more night on a cold shelter floor. He is a super sweet, very smart dog. He is always ready for his meals and has learned treat time very quickly. He adapted to sleeping in the crate overnight and found a chair to call his own.
