Cricket is a sweet little about 8 year old Dachshund lady. (The shelter estimated her to be 6-10 but now that she is well she appears on the younger end). She was sick, weak and full of heartworms when LPDR rescued her from a high-kill shelter in South Carolina. When she went to her foster home, she stayed in her bed for two weeks, too weak and scared to move and socialize with the other dogs and humans. She was treated for heartworms, a wicked skin allergy and had 20 teeth removed. Since then, Cricket has bloomed into an amazing little dog that loves everyone. She is so affectionate and loves back and belly rubs. When you hold her and snuggle, she makes these little groaning noises that let you know that she loves and appreciates you. She is mostly a lap dog but will get frisky from time to time and want us to play and will chase you. You would not believe the transformation in Cricket. All she needed was some TLC and now her true personality shines. Cricket would love to have a home of her own, where she can forget about all the bad things in her past and enjoy her future being spoiled like she deserves. Cricket is good with dogs, not sure about cats and would enjoy children over 12 years of age. She walks great on a leash and is working on her house training. She is spayed and UTD on all vaccines.
