Best in Show's November Dog of the Month - South Shields Sausage

This month is all about George! This miniature dachshund comes with a huge dose of personality and has the world's longest tongue! Find out all about what makes him so special to his proud pet parents and his 23k Instagram followers! and what he would say first if he could talk for a day!

 

1. Tell us about your Bestie? 

George has been chasing birds and laying turds in sunny South Shields since Easter 2018. He definitely came with more personality than the average, which can be seen through the various hilarious pictures on his Instagram @SouthShieldsSausage.

His comical faces have seen him gain internet fame, even finding himself on the front of the local papers! He’s the laziest hound and simply uttering the word ‘walkies’ will automatically have him lying on his back, sticking his tongue out and shooting you the eyes so he doesn’t have to move.

6. Where can he be found sleeping?


On you! He especially loves nuzzling into your neck. When we can pry him off he’ll snuggle into his faux fur blanket in the sun!

7. Where can he be found exploring?

He’s such a beach dog (when it’s not windy!) and loves swimming. He’s been out with us paddle boarding a few times too in his little shark life jacket.

11. And finally, what do you love most about your Bestie?


Ah, I'm not sure we could narrow it down to just one - he's just awesome inside and out. We love everything from his big green eyes all the way down to his toe beans. When he gets super excited he tippy-tappies with his front feet - shuffle paws!
