WHMP Dakin Pet Of The Week

Norton – Neutered Male – 5 months old – about 8 lbs. Chihuahua/ Dachshund mix – Suggested kids age range: 13 and up – Dogs: Yes, dependent on meet – Cats: Confident cats possible – Exercise: High

It’s still Adopt-a-Dog month so let’s talk PUPPY!  I’m a happy and sociable pup who enjoys meeting all sorts of folks. I love playing and love it even more when I get to play with another young dog like me. I’m still a young pup so will need a lot of help learning about crate training, housetraining, chew toy training, and a whole lot more.  I’m hoping to find an adopter who has had some previous experience, as I can sometimes be a bit possessive of my food.  If you’d like to know more about me, come visit me at Dakin in Springfield.
