Meet Bam Bam and Skipper! Bam Bam is said to be a “Dorgi”-a dachshund/corgi mix? He weighs 28 pounds and is between 8-9 years old. Skipper is an 18 pound Chiweenie (chihuahua/dachshund mix) who is also about 8-9 years old.
Bam Bam and Skipper were rescued from different horrendous circumstances and taken in by a young man with a big heart. He gave them a second chance at life and loved them so much. Then he passed away.
Without Bam Bam, Skipper would have been out of his mind with anxiety and worry but Bam Bam keeps him calm. It’s almost like having one dog in some ways as they care for one another and are each other’s companion and support “animal”. Recently Skipper, the Chiweenie with the least amount of confidence, jumped up into his foster mom’s lap and sat for hours. This was all his idea. Since it was the first time he showed so much trust, his foster could barely breathe and didn’t want to move him! It was very encouraging and so sweet imagining the joy and comfort he felt so near to her. It’s so rewarding when a dog makes progress like this!
They are funny and loving little dogs once they become comfortable and trusting. They are spooked easily so need a quiet and peaceful environment. An owner will have to be vigilant with them as they WILL escape if frightened and given the chance.
Letting them take their time, watching them blossom, as their past slowly fades, is an incredible thing. Their foster mom has had them for 6 months and worked her usual dog magic with them. Now they are ready for their own forever home.
They are considered “young” in senior years. They are in excellent health and will be rewarding little fellows for the right person. They are so much fun to play with and they are cuddling love bugs. They will do best in a house with a bit of fenced yard; they do not need much.
