found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Here is an update from Patty's foster dad......
Patty is our tenth foster. She is a Basset/Dachshund mix at 35# and medium size. She is perfectly healthy and of average energy. I can honestly say she is one of the sweetest dogs I've ever experienced. Gets along with everyone, man or beast. No problems to speak of. Eating habits are fine. No aggression ever witnessed by anyone. I live with my wife and two teenage daughters. There are little kids in the neighborhood who enjoy loving on her and she seems to enjoy everyone. No issues with our cat, Lady. Patty sniffs her and that's it. Lady has come to know Patty is harmless. No potty accidents either.
Patty is just as happy sleeping with us in our queen bed or sleeping by herself in one of the group doggie beds or just slumbering on a sofa. We have no rules about furniture. There are group toys, nylabones, and hard rubber chew items that any of the dogs can have at any given time. All get along and happily share.
Truly, Patty would make a great addition to any home I can think of. I am retired and my wife is a teacher, so someone is here most all the time. We choose not to crate, but have never had any reason to. The dogs live inside our home, but we have a wooden fence(d) in yard that they can roam and visit with the neighbors' dogs through the fence slats. She happily eats dry food moistened with water and doesn't seem to care what “brand.” She is not aggressive when food or milk bones are present and has learned to sit and stay before she gets hers like Gracie does.
She's very easy on the leash, but at 35#, she's easy to control. But she does listen and is not overly tugging us along. Loves to ride in the car and our trips to Petsmart to visit other friendly pets.
I can't recommend her any highly. It seems to me, if someone happens to want a basset, and an easy to live with smaller basset, Patty is the dog for you. I'll certainly miss her when she goes to her foreverhome, but we live with the hope that they are welcomed into a loving, permanent home and family. We call her Patty Penny as she's a pretty and shiny and bright as a penny; especially her eyes.
