Hi, my name is Effie. I live in Mechanicsburg PA with my Foster Family who love me to death. I require a fenced in yard because I love to dig, run, chase birds, rabbits, chipmunks and anything else that comes to visit my yard because I don't like them. I think that is a good idea so I don't get lost. I am part dachshund and beagle. The beagle comes out when we get visitors in my yard. That also means I can't be off a leash. I do like the car, but I love to sit on your lap and be your co-pilot. I love to snuggle and give lots of kisses. I love all people even little ones and dogs. I am not sure if I like cats because we don't have any. I am housebroken. If you are interested in meeting me, please contact my Foster Mommy to arrange a meeting. Remember I need a secure 5ft chain link fence so I can't get out:)
Please understand we do not adopt out to families with children under the age of 5. We do not adopt to renters. Some dogs will have fence requirements while others may not.
A dog is a lifetime commitment. The dogs in our system find themselves there, for the most part, because their humans did not have the same loyalty to them as they did to their owners :( We do not take the adoption process lightly, and will do everything in our power to make sure the dog is placed correctly the first time around for your sake and theirs. Thank you for choosing to adopt not shop!
