When we rescued Lana from the shelter, she was scared and defensive. We don’t know how this exotic and elegant dachshund/basset/lab mix ended up incarcerated, but someone lost a really special dog.
If you fancy the larger standard dachshund, you are going to fall in love with Lana. She has the longest, softest, most luxurious ears and the most soulful eyes we’ve ever seen.
Lana is a love bug and wants to be near you all the time and nap with you on the couch if allowed. She is a very calm dog and spends most of her day curled up asleep, so she is great for anyone looking for an easy-to-care-for dog. Folks who work from home or who can take their dog to work would be perfect for her as well.
Lana would be fine in a home with a male dachshund or Labrador for companionship. However, we think she would prefer to be the only dog if she were given a choice.
Lana is great on a leash and walks well with other dogs. She loves car rides and goes crazy if she see's you touch her leash or get out your car keys.
She does not play with toys at all. She is very mature. She does not chew anything but dog treats. She is very Labrador smart but built mostly like a Basset hound. She has large vocabulary and understands a lot of what you are saying.
Lana sometimes gets cranky, so she wouldn't do well in a home with babies or toddlers. She'd be fine with teenagers. You have to take it slow around her. She does not appreciate a lot of noise and chaos. We do not know if she is cat-safe.
Lana is current on all her vaccines and has been microchipped. She is housetrained and crate trained. She sleeps in her crate at night and when her people are not home. She uses the doggy door to let herself out to potty. She's a very good girl!
