TG PAWs: Leroy

Breed: Dachshund

How old is your pet and how long have you had it?

Leroy will be 1 year old Dec. 28th! We got him this past March just before quarantine started, so he's been fun to have around while we are staying safe at home.


Fun facts about the breed:

Dachshunds are in the hound group, and were bred to hunt smaller game like badgers, foxes, and rabbits. Their long, slender bodies and lung capacity helps them burrow and tunnel to find their prey. Funny fact: since they're so short, their tails curl up to easily find them while they're running in tall brush, and can even be used to pull them out of a tunnel if they get stuck! 

What are 3 words to describe your pet's personality?


Loving, loyal, and spunky

What’s your pet’s favorite thing to do?

Leroy loves digging, hunting for mice in our yard, zooming around the house, and assuming 'croissant' mode to nap on your lap.

Do you have a fun story about your pet’s background? 

We got Leroy as a puppy, and he is originally from Arkansas. 

Any other fun things you want to share about your pet?

Leroy LOVES people and big dogs, he thinks he's the size of a labrador. Anytime he meets a person or dog he runs to their feet and rolls on his back for a belly rub or playtime! Because of this he's become a popular patron at our local brewery patio :)
