About Irma

  • Status: Adopted!
  • Species: Dog
  • Rescue ID: D120317
  • Color: black
  • Current Size: 20 Pounds

According to a growing consensus of Irma watchers, she appears to be a dachshund/beagle mix. She is a people magnet whenever we take her out. Although bashful in loud or busy places, she is quite a sweet and friendly little lady. Irma is excellent on a leash and house trained. She will let you know when she needs to go outside by sitting near the door. Irma is gentle with both adults and children, although she prefers the slower and more predictable movements of older children (7+) and adults. She seems like she will tolerate anyone. She has been living with a 7 and 3 year old. She seems to ignore cats (and hens). She barks at the sight of other dogs through the window but is deferential up close unless rushed upon.  Irma is good in the car and likes to go on a ride or any activity where she will be able to accompany the family. She doesn't require a lot of entertainment or exercise, and sleeps much of the time, although she does enjoy walking as far as you can take her. We have regularly walked Irma twice a day around the block or up to 1 mile.  She feels at home on the couch, and she's the right size for that not to be a problem, but can be persuaded to sleep in a dog bed. We noticed only minimal shedding. She was willing to be in a crate without complaining but didn't love it. We left the crate open after we had her in it and she didn't go into it on her own.  Irma was fine in our fenced yard, but was interested in looking for an easy way out to go on an adventure. She did not find one and did not persist or try to dig. She must be on a leash otherwise until she becomes bonded to you.  Irma just recently had puppies and seems a little sad about them going to their own homes but has become more and more herself as we have had her over the last couple weeks. She might know basic commands but at the moment is too timid to be able to perform them. She also does not respond to the name Irma, so not sure if that is her original name. She's been through a lot and is fearful and must currently be approached slowly. She does not like to be picked up but will allow being picked up from underneath. She is not a barky dog but when she does bark out it seems to be out of fear or in busy or  transitional situations, such as if she would like to come with you, or while in the car alone when approached by strangers.

Given the opportunity to bond with a human and feel security in her home, we feel Irma would be an affectionate companion and an ideal pet.
