My granddaughter fell in love with a mutt puppy at a PetSmart adoption event, and my daughter adopted him.  He's a dachshund mix of some kind, about 11 weeks old.

He went to the vet today.  He has a URI and came home with antibiotics.  He weighs a whopping 6 pounds.

He is adorable and I am happy to see how close he and Bella have become already!

Now that he is on antibiotcs and feels better, Peanut is becoming a spunky little thing.  Reportedly very smart, he is doing well with housebreaking and goes to the door and asks!  DD thinks he might be part Jack Russell Terrier.  I told her adolescence will be a killer.

Oh, what a cutie!  It's great to see him & his new sister getting along so well too.  What a lucky little granddaughter you have.  I fall in love w/every puppy at adoption events, & nobody ever lets me take them all home. :smileyhappy:

Welcome Peanut.

My Rudi was 3 pounds at less than 8 weeks when I adopted her.   Supposedly she was mini and parent dogs were there and about 10 to 12 pounds but my little girl kept on growing into a standard size at just under 20#.   She carries the weight well, isn't fat so either she takes after one of her grandparents or the private home misrepresented that was the parent dogs.   But I love my Rudi and 20# fits well actually as she is curled up next to me now.

I hope your granddaughter loves her doxie mix.   I was told to walk her using a halter since the breed are prone to spine issues.  And to limit the jumping and stairs use too.  

hugs,  Josie
