Hi, my name is Russell!

Adult Medium Male
Dachshund / Mixed

Hi, my name is Russell, but my friends call me Rusty! I'm probably the cutest and longest Dachshund mix you've ever seen! Some people have asked if I was part Lab, because I look a bit like a miniature chocolate Lab – but who knows!? I’m definitely 100% cuteness, that’s for sure!

I haven’t been told how old I am, but they think I’m about 5 years old. My favorite things include going for walks, running around in the back yard (aka Zoomies!), and snuggling on the couch. I’m up for playing with tennis balls, too! I currently live with 6 other dogs, of all sizes, and meet new dogs on a daily basis. I don’t really like being alone, so if you leave please let me have a canine companion to hang out with while you’re gone. Who likes being alone anyway??

I LOVE little dogs, but I’m not a fan of those puppies. But if you have another little breed dog, he or she would be my new best friend! If you have children, it would be great if they were a little older. Like my dogs, I prefer my human friends to not be puppies either!

Let’s meet, and I’ll look at you with my adorable puppy eyes. I guarantee you’ll want to take me home right away! So go ahead, hit the apply to adopt button – and apply to adopt me, Russell!
