Are you ready to rock out with Eddie, our Adoptable Dog of the Week? Eddie is an adult male Wire Fox Terrier and Dachshund mix from Nashville, TN. He is already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Eddie’s Story:

Eddie (think Eddie Haskell or Eddie Van Halen) is fun loving, sturdy, and sometimes mischievous – like his name sakes. He is adventurous and LOVES exploring outside, often reminding his foster mommy of a little Tom Sawyer. He enjoys playing with squeaky toys, fetches tennis balls, and plays Frisbee. He also loves to bite the water from a hose ( watch the video). Eddie is crate trained, house trained, sits on command, and knows how to use a doggy door. He is “mouthy” like a puppy and likely wouldn’t do well in a home with small children. He is learning manners and patience. He is curious about cats, but leaves them alone after introductions. He plays well with most dogs but is still learning his manners and working on social skills. He has a lot of energy and will run circles around you. He would benefit from having another high-energy dog in his adoptive home. He would love a family that has a lot of time to spend with time and will play with him a lot. He is estimated to be a year old and only weighs about 15 pounds. He is up to date on shots, neutered, heartworm negative, and on flea/tick/HW prevention.
