Default Free to a good home (Dachsund mix)

The people who rent the house next to my office moved out and LEFT this little guy along with a pit bull both chained up in the front yard to starve. Not exactly sure how anyone could do something so cruel, but that's the world we live in. After three days of watching for the owners to return (we did take them food and water) and a phone call to the landlord which confirmed they had indeed moved, I decided the little one should come home with us so we c could try and find him a good home. The pitbull bit the owner of the house and tried to bite me when I went to give him food so he was taken to the humane society I guess. I am guessing this dog is longhaired dachsund mixed with something. He is as tall and long as our shorty jack but just a little bit narrower. We have been calling him Cuby (short for Cuba Libre).

My fiancee is a professional dog trainer and has offered to do a little obedience training with him until we can find him a home. He seems to be pretty smart. Also if it helps rehome him I will pay for his boosters. He is terrific with all of our dogs and our cat. If this needs to be moved to the classifieds will a mod please move it for me.

LOCATED IN BEAUMONT, TX

I forgot to add that my fiancee and I travel quite often for work. Also my brother is working in Victoria so I'm sure we could arrange transportation between Beaumont and Victoria. My Fiancee will be going to Athens area for a hunt test the first weekend of May also.

Let me know if he does well in the house with other dogs. I have little dogs inside. Is he altered? He is a cutie.... What do you call him?

God bless you and your fiancÚ for doing this. I just cannot understand how some people can be so cruel and heartless. We just got a puppy at Christmas time, otherwise we'd be all over this. Cute little puppy - I'm sure someone will want him, and he'll have a good home soon.

Thanks to both of you for doing this.

Regards,

Dave

He is not neutered. He loves playing outside with all of our labs and our Jack Russell. I don't think he has a mean bone in his body. We haven't brought him in our house yet because we already have 4 that live inside and don't need another. We call him Cuby (short for Cuba Libre ). If anyone who takes him does not think it will work out then I will be happy to take him back and try to find him another home.

I will say the only problem we have had with him is that he whines and yips/barks if you put him in a kennel. He usually does it for about 15 minutes to an hour but will stop after that. I think with enough time in the kennel though he will eventually give it up completely. When he is out of the kennel free to roam he doesn't make a peep.

If we hadn't got another JRT this past September I would definitely keep this little guy. We are at our limit of 3 labs and 1 jack russell though .

Yeah, I know what you mean. We now have 2 dogs (both Schnauzers), and 2 cats - 1 a geriatric, the other one is quite ill and needs a lot of care and attention. I already checked with the Boss Mama, and she said "NO" about adding your little Cuby to our household. I doubt it will take long to find him a good home.

Best of luck,

Dave

I bet he would also be very versatile being an inside and outside pup since that is how he was raised... any life is better THAN ON A CHAIN.........

I am still looking at him. What does he weigh if you had to guess and how is he doing in the house with "marking", etc....?

I bet he weighs 13-15 lbs. The only time he is in our house he is in a kennel. He does like to hike his leg though when he is outside but that is obviously what any male dog would do. If someone wanted to make him an inside dog I don't think it would take much. He has been in a kennel for 10 hours overnight and never had an accident.

I wanted to say thank you to JP for meeting up with me Friday night to pick up Cubby. It was a pleasure to meet with you and thank you for saving this little guy. He has integrated well into the family and spends most of his time with my 110 pound shepard. He never really sits still when he's awake but I'll try and post some pics of him with the other dogs. When we play fetch with our shepard Cubby steals the tennis ball and runs away with it so my wife named him Bandit.
