More about me

I am a goofy, happy-go-lucky dachshund mix looking for a best friend who likes to snuggle and has plenty of time to care for me. I am paralyzed from the waist down, so I come with a nice set of wheels that I LOVE to roll around in. I am a handicapable guy who doesn't let anything slow me down!

You will need to set me up with your regular vet as soon as possible to establish care, as I will require monthly checkups.

My needs include getting my bladder expressed four to six times a day, which is really easy and only takes a few minutes. I also need to be closely monitored to ensure I am going potty regularly and do not develop bed sores. I also need to be on a special diet for my long-term health!

I am going to physical therapy twice a week so my guardian will need to take me to my appointments as well as perform special exercises to stretch my muscles (I promise they are fun!).

I will be available to adopt through the SPCA of Northern Nevada's Foster-to-Adopt program, which means we'll get lots of support while you adjust and learn more about my routine!

Apply today and an adoption counselor will call you to tell you more about me!

From: Lassen County Animal Control
Exercise: Low energy. I only need short walks. My friends in clinic will share the exercises you'll need to do with me daily to keep me strong.
Dogs: I may do best with a female, meet and greet required.
Children: I may do best with kids aged 8 and up, meet and greet required.
Cats: Unknown to SPCA.

Dog Care Basics

Please be patient while your dog adjusts to you and its new home. Please take your new dog directly home on a secure leash, collar or harness and try to keep it a calm environment while s/he investigates and acclimates. The transition may be somewhat stressful on your dog, and it’s best not to take it to a friend’s house, dog park, school or other busy, crowded place right away. A pet who displays a happy, playful attitude at the Adoption Center may act wary and fearful in a new environment. Please follow our Adoption Counselor’s advice during your adoption process!

Consider Getting Pet Insurance

In your adoption packet, there is information about signing up for a free trial for pet insurance. Please take advantage of this offer! It can help you save your dog’s life in the event of an unexpected accident. Additionally, you can research additional pet insurance options.

We’re Here to Help!

If you’ve viewed our Pet Behavioral Support page and still have questions, contact our Pet Help Line: (775) 324-7773, 200

Visit a Local Vet

Please take your dog to a veterinarian within two weeks of adoption to create a trusted relationship for emergencies, annual checkups, vaccinations, and on-going care.

Vaccinate Your Dog

Your new dog leaves our Adoption Center up to date on vaccinations, but you’ll need to continue its vaccinations and you may want additional ones (example: Canine Flu).

Dog Behavior

Watch for cues about how your pet is feeling. If your pet seems timid, try to move slowly, or just sit in the same room reading a book and let your pet come to you. If your pet is full of energy and ready to play, get out the toys right away. But be cautious. Pets can be both scared and full of energy. Modify your actions to make your new pet feel welcome. The care you take with your own behavior in early days will pay off in the future as your pet learns that you are someone to trust.
