Hazelnut  the Docker (Dachshund + Cocker Spaniel) looks like a mini Golden Retriever.  She's

  • An affectionate lapdog

  • Good-natured

  • Happy-go-lucky

  • Energetic

  • Enthusiastic

  • Very treat motivated

  • Gets along well with other small dogs and loves to play with them

  • Loves to chase balls

  • Loves stuffed toys

  • Walks well on a leash

  • Fine sleeping in a crate but we bet she'd prefer sleeping in your bed

  • Timid of new people but warms up when they give her treats 

  • Will take some training to overcome her fear of strangers

  • Not suitable for apartment living or a situation where she'd have to be walked in a high pedestrian activity area since because of her fear of strangers she barks at them.

  • Not suitable for first time dog owners

  • Adult only home is preferred

  • Spayed female

  • 1 year old

  • 13.7 lbs

  • Up-to-date on vaccinations

  • Microchipped

  • Lives in a foster home with parrots and doesn't pay attention to them

  • Has not been with cats under our care so we don't know how she is with them

  • Housetrained and uses a doggie door to go potty.  Since she uses a doggie door to go potty we don't know if she'll ask to go out so adopters should be prepared to take her out frequently at first.

  • Adopters must reside in San Diego County

  • All medical and shelter paperwork provided to adopter
