Mannheim Needs a New Family!

Friends here in Phoenix have a sweet little Dachsie that needs a new family. Due to family circumstances beyond their control they feel that they can no longer give Mannheim the attention he deserves, so with much sadness they are searching for a wonderful person/persons to adopt this little guy. Because we are doggy people and we have lots of doggy friends, I offered to spread the word.

Mannheim is a miniature weighing in at about 12 lbs. Below is the description from his current family so that you will be aware of his particular needs.

If you are interested in adopting Mannheim, leave a comment so that I can forward your contact info or send me an email from my profile page, and I will see that his family gets it.


"He is a very sweet 6 year old boy. He is a cuddler—affectionate, happy, and spoiled rotten. He needs a home without children or other animals. He does not do well with other dogs, because he doesn’t know he is a dog! He was neutered as a puppy. Also he was born with congenital cataracts in the right eye, which were repaired surgically. He will need to be on one eye drop a day for the rest of his life, but his vision is now quite good. The drops are inexpensive and I have a 4 month supply of drops that I will give to his new owner.

The ideal home will offer him companionship of an adult couple or a single animal lover. He needs to be taken in and out every few hours. He is housebroken if taken out to potty frequently. He is also trained to go into his kennel when the owner leaves the home. He does best if left alone for only 4-5 hours at a time. He likes to travel and is good in the car.

Here is a picture. Thanks so much…Can’t stand the thought of giving him up, but also realize our schedules are not ideal for the home he deserves!"

Oh my goodness...What a gorgeous little guy! If I were closer, I would give him serious consideration!

What a sweetheart. Doxies are the most wonderful of dogs. We have one, also spoined, and if he was willing to be part of a family, we would have loved to take him in. Both of our dogs (one dixie and one shih tzu), both taken when their owners couldn't keep them. Hope you can find a really good home for him.
