What is most delightful is her curiosity. She wants to see and sniff everything and she loves rolling in the grass in the backyard.
Gracie recently had a dental, giving her a much healthier mouth. Many seniors have only a few teeth, as does Gracie, and do just fine at meal time.
Her foster has been walking her at Centennial Park in Nashville and she is a hit! Other dog owners and walkers all stop to give her a pet and laugh and marvel at her trot to keep up with her host dog. Her ears flap up and down as she motors along, she’s really a puppy in a senior body. Gracie has no health issues, is fully vetted, and now that her dental problems are all solved, she’s a perky, pretty old gal. Her foster says she is a joy to greet in the morning as Gracie is so happy to be alive and live with joy in another day. She’s a real delight and loves to snuggle in the evenings. Due to her past, Gracie has separation anxiety and thrives best when her foster/owner doesn’t mind her being a shadow or can spend her time with other pups and people, typical of a Dachshund. Gracie is house trained (though as a senior, needs a few extra trips outside to be sure she does her duty outside) and comes with all her doggie gear that makes her feel at home.
