Hello, I would like to introduce you to one of the sweetest girls I have ever met...her name is Bismuth.  Bismuth is believed to be about 2 years old.  Upon intake, they "guesstimated" JRT/ Dachsund mix.  I have owned a JRT, and this girl is way too mellow.  She is short and long, weighing about 35 lbs.  
When she came to us she was scared and very shy.  She is starting to come out of her shell and she is a gentle, playful pleasure.  I do not believe Bismuth had much of a doggy quality of life.  I do not believe she has ever walked on a leash before.  In a short time Bismuth has been walking on a leash and going into her crate on command at night.  Her leash skills are improving where my 7 yr old easily walks her.  She has not had any potty accidents in the house, but I am very diligent about letting her out first thing in the morning, before I go out and first thing when I come home.  She has the run of the house when we are home.  She will be spayed on 8/31/16 and after she will be available for adoption.
She loves to play with my 2 children, both second graders, and will happily receive a belly rub anytime.  I have purchased a few chew toys which she will use, but otherwise, she loves to snuggle.  She gets along great with other dogs she has met in the neighborhood.  Did I mention how quiet she is?  She does not make a sound in her crate until I come to let her out, then its tail wagging excitement.  She doesn't even bark at the doorbell.  She was exposed to a cat at the clinic, and she just sniffed the kitty and walked away.  We have a senior kitty in the house, who has been avoiding Bismuth so no second opinion yet!  My kitty has never really cared for the K9 type.  But I believe Bismuth would be fine with a kitty. 
If you think Bismuth is the girl you have been looking for please contact us by completing an adoption application at the web address shown below.
