*** This puppy is fostered in Mount Airy, North Carolina.***
My name is Sahara! I am one in a litter of five. We are 7 weeks old (10/3) and weigh approximately 5 lbs. Our mom was a stray and we were born underneath a building. We are not sure what breeds our parents are, but our mom only weighs about 25 pounds. Some of us are fuzzy, and some of us have short coats. We all have short thick legs and wide feet like a dachshund. Our bodies are slightly elongated, but not as much as a purebred dachshund . Some of us have a tail that curls up on our back. The color of our fur is that of a shepherd mix. We should be small to medium sized adults. We are all extremely friendly and well-socialized! We love to be held and to give lots of kisses! We love to play with the other dogs in the rescue. We are good with cats and children. We will not be adopted into homes with young children though because because we are so small. We're all very inquisitive, brave little pups. We are already used to sleeping in a wire crate at night. We don't bark much at all, and play together very nicely. We have a pretty typical activity level for puppies our age. We are ready and waiting to go to our new forever homes!
