Lacey's Story...
Snow is a dog, to be sure, but she is perhaps more accurately characterized as a fuzzy munchkin princess. The pictures do not really do her justice. She is equal measures of beautiful and cutie pie with the typical dachshund black and tan face and what looks to be a mis-matched body in white and black. Even her fuzzy little tri-colored feet are beautiful.

Snow is a very loving dog. If she is sleepy, she will try to lure you to the couch to sit down so that she can snuggle up against you. If you're up and moving about, she will prance circles around you as you move from room to room. She likes everybody. She greets visitors enthusiastically.

She loves other dogs, and living in a house with another dog is a must for her because she does not do well on her own. My dogs are all older and past playing age, but somehow Snow manages to get them down in the puppy crouch and play fighting. And she likes to nap on top of them.

The only thing Snow loves as much as people, and dogs, is squirrels. She loves to sit in the backyard and stare intently at the squirrels-not so much for attack purposes, but rather because she'd like to play with one. Alas, the squirrels do not reciprocate this feeling and give her a wide berth. In the outdoor picture included, she is staring at a squirrel, which explains her laser-like focus.

As befits a fuzzy princess, Snow likes to be pampered. She thinks that every food bowl should be hers. She expects to sleep in bed with you (she is a good sleeping buddy) and will whine non-stop if left to sleep by herself. She feels that while the other dogs are all well and good, she really deserves to be the center of attention. All the time.

Perfect as she is, Snow is not for every household. She cannot be crated. We had a good deal of experience with this because she came to us with kennel cough, and so had to be crated for the safety of the other dogs. She would scratch the bars so obsessively to try to get out that she ripped her paw pads and there was blood all over the crate and her bedding. She will harm herself trying to get out of a crate, so if you need a dog you can crate, this one is not for you.

Though she is not perfect, she has made excellent progress with her house training. Nights have never been a problem. She will sleep beside me all night-even when I sleep in on weekends. She's never had an accident at night. During the day, she started with 7 accidents a day and now (3 weeks later) we're down to three accidents a week. If you are squeamish about dog pee on the floor, this is not the dog for you.

So long as she has another dog, Snow will fit into most kinds of households an active family, an older working couple, a single person, etc. She adapts very well to the circumstances she finds. She is a happy, joyous dog all the time just like you would be if you were a princess.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lacey, a Flower Mound Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund for sale in Flower Mound, or seeking a Dachshund dog from a breeder in Flower Mound.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Flower Mound already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Flower Mound breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dachshund breeders who help with Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Flower Mound paves the way for another one to be saved.
