Heyo! I am Fredi and I am here to teach you about life, kids. I am 10 years old, a male Dachshund mix, and just about 8 lbs. I was hanging around, wondering about my sad existence in a banged up state in an even more banged up box when my life took a turn. TAP rescued me! I have been getting a lot of TLC from my foster family and the amazing vets, becaus eyou know, these ol’ bones need healin’. I was found quite bald and have been receiving medication to improve my doggo pattern baldness. My joints creak with arthritis and monthly adequan shots and pain meds do the trick. Gabapentin and meloxicam are a relief(approx $65-70 for both together, a month). My heart also murmurs with love, and a monitoring will help. My neuter and dental is pending.

I am a good doggo and have picked up bathroom training and leash walking real quick. I need regular outside breaks, because the bladder shrinks with age or som’thin! You see my picture with a smile and being held? Yep, that’s my favorite thing! I make a great coffee date and my mellowness helps me go out and see the best cafes around. I get along great with other dogs, cats and kiddos. This ol’ boy wont play, but happy to connect emotionally through cuddles!

My ideal home is with a couple or a single person without children. I would do best with someone that works from home and has a calm lifestyle. I don’t mind me having senior or calm dog siblings too. If you think we can watch the sunsets together and be at peace, let’s meet up! My adoption fee is $250 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.
