ADOPTED ON 08-23-14 – Cayenne’s rescue story starts from the day he was dropped off at the front door of a vet’s office, the vet’s heart went out to sweet Cayenne and took him into her care. We can only wonder if it was the owner that dropped him off or if it was a kind soul that found him and could not walk away. He was left in a wire cage and covered with fleas; we do know that he has been suffering from that for a long time. He was diagnosed with flea-induced dermatitis, which is a flea allergy skin irritation caused by fleabites. He has been treated and he is doing well now.
Cayenne is a longhaired dachshund and known to be a real clown; he is happy when he is with a group of people. He is a very special character; he knows he has been rescued and understands that life is good. He is charming, sociable, and has a much quieter personality than the other dachshund breeds. His southern foster tells us that he is a very laid-back and an easy going dog that has not barked—being a vet she has lots of experience.
Cayenne seems to be house broken, however, his new family will need to give him time to adjust to his new schedule and work with him just to be sure. He does well with the cat at the vets office, has a moderate energy level, he is well adjusted to his new foster family routine, does not have any fears but we don’t know how he would be with young children. His quiet personality would be great for an older family or a family with children over the age of seven. If your family has children under seven, you would need to supervise the children around the dog but in time, as your children get older and he gets more confortable, we are confident that he would do well. Rescue Dog Village Guardian, Inc. would help the family with any questions or evaluation training.
Cayenne loves to play games and has a great sense of humor. He is a loyal little dog, is very attached to his family, and he firmly believes that sleeping under the bedcovers is in the Dachshund Bill of Rights. He would make a great family dog with tons of love to give! He has an amazing dog inside of him and just needs a family. This special little boy definitely deserves a fabulous forever home and RDV is committed to making sure that his family is as fabulous as he is.
ABOUT THE BREED
Longhaired dachshunds are much like the other two dachshund types except their coat is longer and thicker. They have colors and patterns including; dapple, brindle, chocolate, cream, chocolate and black, and red. The coat’s texture is soft, silky, and slightly wavy; much like that of an Irish setter.
Compared to the other types, the longhaired dachshund is typically easier to train. This is because they are more gentle and willing to obey. Consistency and balance are two factors to take into consideration when training a longhaired dachshund.
It is important to keep longhaired dachshunds on a routine exercise program. Although longhaired dachshunds are naturally energetic and active dogs, they will need encouragement once in a while. Daily walks combined with a fun game should be sufficient to keep your doxy at a healthy weight.
The longhaired dachshunds are curious, lively, charming, brave, and are friendly outgoing dogs. They are energetic and eager to work or play. The breeding gives them keen senses, and makes them brave and bold. The longhaired dachshund is smart and calmer or easier going than other dachshunds.
Though the Dachshund makes a great housedog, he does need his daily and plenty of companionship. Most Dachshunds are alert watchdogs that do not take kindly to strangers intruding on their domain.
