Gertie & Twiggy – RESERVED


17 Month Old Female


12 Month Old Female

Miniature Dachshund (Pair)

They are a truly delightful, loving and entertaining pair that will have you captivated all day long. Initially it was thought they may be best separated but they have made such an amazing come-back that they now need to maintain their relationship as a Laurel and Hardy type couple. Gertie is a larger sized  Miniature Dachshund while Twiggy is a  very small miniature.

Gertie arrived in foster care quite overweight  and Twiggy the reverse – hence the names. They were quite nervous and reluctant to go out as they had lived quite a sheltered life before coming into rescue.  They have made great progress and they LOVE life – play all day, love balls and toys (tiny ones), squeaky things and most of all going out for walks in pretty much all weathers.

Gertie is making really good progress with her weight loss and new owners would need to be very strict on this matter for a sustained period of time. They are in good robust health and will need to be re-homed on a neutering contract due to their ages and the contra indications of early neutering in relation to IVDD.

Whilst they are now pretty much house trained, Gertie still has the odd accident but both are good overnight. If Daxxies are your thing – you will LOVE these two. A home with older respectful children could be considered, with new owners who are around for most of the day.   Exercise is a must for these outward bound beach and woodland girls. They could be re homed with other dogs as they are social girls.  Best in a cat free home.

They have been vaccinated and micro chipped and are up to date with flea and worming treatment.  They will need to be neutered at the correct time as part of the Adoption Contract (proof of neutering will be required and followed up) Reduced cost neutering is available on request.  They are in foster care near Hastings in East Sussex (TN35).
