Looks like: Dachshund Mix
Male, 10 years old, 17 pounds
Higgins bounced right out of his traveling crate and into our hearts with a wagging tail and a big smile on his face. Even though he's been juggled around a bit in the last few weeks, he chooses to see it all as an adventure rather than misfortune, and he adapts quickly to each new environment.

Higgins was living with another dog, but the other dog was bullying Higgins quite a bit and had some other behavioral issues, so they went their separate ways. Higgins is not affected by his negative experience, though, and he is quick to make friends with new dogs he meets. He enjoys exploring and has a real zest for life!

Higgins was surrendered to Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter after his guardian passed away unexpectedly on a trip to Mexico. His guardian's friend had been watching Higgins but was unable to care for him long-term.
