Emma is super adorable and super friendly. She often put her front paws on our legs, either so we would pet her or just give her some encouragement. Whenever we knelt down to her level, she would climb into our lap and give us doggy kisses. When we were climbing over the fallen tree trunk, she put her paws on our legs to “help” and make sure we got over safely. It was too cute. Emma wanted to go exploring off the trail in the woodland preserve. When we started to steer her back, she looked up at us like, “Excuse me, we’re missing out on a lot of interesting smells over here.” Emma gets along with dogs of all sizes and is currently sharing her kennel with a large Shepherd mix, so she could go to a home with or without another dog. Be sure to say hello to Emma on your next visit! Dachshunds are curious and adventuresome. They like to hunt and dig because they are scent hounds. Although very independent, they love to be part of the family`s activities. They are good in their own family, but are reserved with strangers. Get acquainted with this dog off leash in one of our family run areas. Most dogs will need to run off some energy before they settle down and get acquainted with you. Thanks!
