Beegee, a happy Dachshund mix, was returned to us 8 years after his adoption because the owner could no longer care for him and his “brother". He and Smokey are a bonded pair but do not need to be adopted together. His birthdate is 9/1/08.
This guy is a charming senior with the heart of a pup and the enthusiasm to match. He is very people oriented, and wants nothing more than to hang out getting belly rubs and giving kisses, unless there is an open door and nothing but the horizon in view, ha ha. Because his recall isn’t reliable “in the wild” we do not recommend leash free walks without recall training unless in a contained area. He is ok on a leash and will pull, but it is controllable and our volunteers continue to work with him on this. He also likes to jump and was once found on top of the office desk! Needless to say, his person will want to consider how to “jump proof” his environment as jumping down from such a height is not good for his back or small legs. He likes respectful dogs and children, but not cats. That prey drive is too much for Beegee so his ideal home will be cat free, but he be fine sharing it with another respectful dog.
Despite his quirks, Beegee seems to be an easy keeper. He is people oriented, house trained, mostly polite and good in a car. Despite his young age of 10 this guy has lots of spirit in him and is looking for the right person to share his life. Once you meet him you will be in love.
All pets arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and vaccinated. Adoption fee for Beegee is a suggested minimum of $50 (more gratefully accepted), or SENIOR FOR SENIOR - adopters over 65 may name their own adoption fee. All pets are placed with a 30-day money-back trial period, to give pet and family enough time to discover any unknown allergies or other conflicts. Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your donation to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!
