This dachshund is being fostered in Central California.

Timber is one happy, happy, happy little guy.  It usually takes owner-surrender dogs a few days or more to stop mourning the loss of their previous people, not Timber.  Timber made lemons into lemonade and settled immediately into his foster home.  And look at his big, beautiful eyes! They just do not get any cuter than Timber.

Timber’s story is a common one in dachshund rescue.  He is very afraid of children and his owner is getting ready to have a baby, so it was time for him to find a new home.

Timber LOVES his people, and he is very friendly with strangers. However, he is afraid of young children,  so a home with teenagers and up is the right home for Timber. He is a cuddler, and he loves to sleep nestled under an arm right next to you.  His foster parents feel his name should have been Roo or Joey, because he loves to snuggle into his foster dad’s sweatshirt.

Timber is also great with other dogs. He is currently living with three female dachshunds in his foster home.  He is a non-alpha personality and has wonderful dog to dog communication.  He is good at reading other dogs and is really good at conflict resolution.  He is the self-appointed referee.

Timber LOVES going for walks so much that when he arrived back to his foster home after receiving dental surgery to fix an oral/nasal fistula*, he was begging his foster dad to take him on a walk.

Timber is housetrained, and he would love to have a home with another dachshund for play and companionship, especially for those times when they must stay home alone.

Timber is neutered, fully vaccinated, and microchipped.  If you are interested in providing Timber a wonderful home, please contact Jenaveve at creative.veve@comcast.net and complete our online application.

*An oral/nasal fistula is the hole that is left when a major tooth is extracted in the upper jaw.  It is repaired by stitching it closed.  If left open, food, fur, and debris can enter the nasal cavity through the mouth and cause serious infection.
