In shelter Dog

Dallas, Dallas County, Texas, United ...
Pet name:
Dachshund, Mixed
Are you up for a pup fitness challenge to start off the year? If so, then we have the dog for you! Meet Schnitzel. At 28 pounds on his 20 pound frame he is just a wee bit overweight. Are you the person that could turn Schnitzel into a slim Jim? Read more to find out about this funny, resilient, people-loving pup.

Schnitzel is a happy little Dachshund that loves dogs, cats and people and is not afraid of anything. Schnitzel was adopted from a shelter, but was returned six months later. In that 6-month time frame he had been pretty neglected. He had put on 9 pounds, which was tough on his 20-pound frame. He had not had his toenails trimmed and had become heartworm positive. Basically, he was adopted, then neglected, then returned back to the shelter. That is when Paws in The City stepped in.

PITC saw something in this charming pup. Regardless of the neglect he suffered he is happy, friendly and affectionate. He is potty trained, walks on a leash and is kid and pet friendly. With the help of his foster, walks and the proper food, he has already lost 2 pounds. He is learning some basic training commands. He knows how to sit, and he's trying to master down, which shouldn't be that hard because he's super close to the ground. Disclaimer: he is a food stealer. Yep, he does love to steal a treat or morsel if the opportunity arises!
