If you are looking for the perfect dog, then I am NOT the dog for you! I am unique and quirky! I am 18 pounds and your guess is as good as mine in terms of what my heritage is. My foster mother says she thinks I am Dachshund with a little terrier thrown in for good measure.
I am house trained and crate trained, I love to snuggle, I walk well on leash and I enjoy car rides! So now you're asking yourself, what's the punchline? What's wrong with this cute little dog from Texas? I grew up with a single mom who could barely make ends meet to support me and my 10 other siblings. She surrendered us to an orphanage where we were "in the system" until we were of age and then we were thrown on the streets of Texas to fend for ourselves.
OK, the part about my mom and 10 siblings and an orphanage is not true. But I did end up at a kill shelter for whatever reason and now I have the weight of the world on my shoulders and sometimes it just gets too heavy to carry around! I'm good with other dogs, however I am very very bossy! Though I am currently in foster with 9 other dogs ranging from 10 pounds to 80 pounds, my perfect home would be without other dogs or maybe one other dog. I would also prefer a home without any children as I do have an attitude sometimes. Hey can you blame me? I personally feel that my positives outweigh any negatives!!!
Oh and PS, I absolutely hate the blow dryer. I will bark and bark at you while you are blow drying your hair. I like the natural look!! But if you think we could make this thing work, please put in an adoption or dog foster application & be sure to mention my name!!
