Champ (Dachshund - Terrier Mix)

Champ is 10 months old. Based on his vet's opinion, he is part Dachshund and part Terrier. I believe he is part Hound, and part trouble-maker! After having just lost my beloved pit bull, Jada, to a reckless van driver, I went around to shelters to make donations in her memory. No way did I want another another animal because I could not bear to love a dog that much and lose it.


It was when we went to North Shore Animal League, that I saw in the distance, this tiny nothing tossing a ball in the air that was 3 times his size. I began to cry uncontrollably, and blurted out "I want him." As it was, we were one person too late (all the while I'm standing in front of his cage like a protective mother, telling those onlookers I'm adopting him). I guess my beloved Jada was looking down on me, because the first person was denied, and so began my new journey with Champ.

He's such an amazingly, happy little guy. He loves soft toys and playing with his big brother, Titan. He loves to snuggle beside you and follow you every where - even in the shower. If a door closes behind you, 10 to 1 he will be on the other side of the door sitting patiently waiting for you to let him in.


Champ loves burying himself so deep under my covers, that unless you know that's where you left him, you can't see him. I don't know how he does it. He'll come up with his tongue hanging out of his mouth, panting. Then two seconds later, back under he goes! Champ especially loves my heating blanket. More times than not, I'm left to sleep, with my you know what hanging out in the cold, while he is all snuggled up in my blanket. Closeup of Champ sitting.

He is adorable! Sorry to hear about your loss, I understand how you feel. Lost my beautiful lab mix girl, Suzie, two years ago to cancer and I still miss her a lot. Thanks for adopting that cute little guy!

Champ is so cute, and I know he'll make you feel a lot better for having adopted him to fill up the empty space left by your Jada. You know that Jada is smiling in approval.

Thank you for sharing Champ.

Thank You for your kind posts. It was very difficult, but Jada is in my heart and Champ is a (spastic) bundle of joy =0]. As all my animals are rescues..this little guy rescued me. Enjoy & thanks again.
