Sebastian is a 4 year old soon to be 5, rare blue Long hair Standard Dachshund born right here in Texas! He is a silly 19 pounds of energy and attention just waiting for the next new thing to chase or play with. His cleverness and curiosity will always get him into new places or even score him human treats!
Sebastian is a fun and loving dog who will always be attached to your hip with a ball! He has boundless energy when it comes to playing. He was born with alopecia which gives him an interestingly soft blue coat. He has thus far been nicknamed “Danny Devito”, for when the hair on his ears get long and stand up straight. He grew up in a household with a Pomeranian, whom couldn’t handle his playfulness, and prompted his need for brother and sister dachshunds! They soon grew out of their playful era, and have since left Sebastian to play by himself. He enjoys long walks, running around outside, searching for treats, and cuddling with his owners! He is a bit scared of staying in the kennel, however he usually adjusts when given enough time, so he would prefer to be able to go anywhere his human can go.
Sebastian grew up in an apartment environment, so he knows how to use a pee pad, however he can not always tell what is a pee pad and what is a carpet. Allowing him to go outside in the yard to do his business is his preference. He can sit, he can stay (Until you disappear), use a treadmill, find his ball or toy, and find rabbits if you prefer, (he can sniff very very well). Because he loves to chase rabbits, he would not do good with a cat or a dog smaller than him, as this may prompt his instinct to hunt. he loves to get attention from passing people and children, but has never played with a child before. He would probably do best with children over 7 years old. Because Sebastian is so playful and his current siblings are not, he has been separated as to not introduce future conflicts. He regards his owner so highly and protects them with all his heart.
Sebastian is a very loyal and active companion that would love a structured house with plenty of room to play, a warm place to cuddle, and a human to snuggle on.
