“My name is Raven and I am 4 years old. I am timid when you first meet me, but with patience and treats, you will win me over and I will shower you with kisses all the time. I am a sweet, happy girl with a lot of love to give. I am kennel trained and sleep through the night. Speaking of sleep, I love to nap on and off throughout the day. I need to be in a quiet house with little to no visitors, and no small children. I am almost potty trained; still a work in progress. I tolerate baths and being picked up but I’m kind of an independent girl. I will need some training from my new family as that wasn’t a priority at my former home.  When I am outside I love to explore and smell all the smells. I enjoy walks, playing with my stuffie and I find comfort in my blankets.”

Raven got her name from her beautiful jet-black coat resembling the bird.   Raven has been around big and little dogs and does well with slow introductions but does not need a companion dog.  She has not been around children or cats and as stated previously, likely wouldn’t do well with small kiddos. Raven does well on a leash and crate. She likes water and is a cute lap pet. She is an intelligent, gentle, affectionate, and playful girl who can be a little shy. 

Raven is a spayed/female dachshund mix estimated to be about 4 years old. She came into rescue as a pregnant mama and all of her pups are adopted and now it’s her turn! Raven is HW+ but is receiving treatment through the rescue and is currently on preventatives. Raven is an all-around sweet dog and would be a great addition to a loving home. She has had no accidents in her foster home over the last few months so potty training is coming along nicely.  She likes a good belly rub and lounging around with snuggles. Raven is fully vaccinated and micro-chipped. She will be the perfect pet!

Raven weighs 16 pounds and is from Texas. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
