Hi, I’m “Lady,” which fits me very well because I’m so very sweet and lady-like (mostly, anyway!)! I am a 13 year old Beagle/Dachshund mix. I’m even cuter in person than my pictures, and I’ve been told that my face is very “puppy like” and I seem younger than my age. I also hear that I have the absolute softest fur – like a “bunny”!
I just arrived at Safe Place for Pets because my dad had to go into hospice. After being with him my whole life, the change has been hard, but the people caring for me are incredibly sweet and I know I will find a wonderful, loving, forever family and home very soon! I am housebroken, and am very good with dogs, cats, and kids. I am small though at about 20 lbs so I need to ensure that kids will not step on or hurt me. I would love someone home much of the time, and someone to walk me short distances as I’m great on a leash. Since my legs are so short, I can go upstairs well, but going down is difficult so if you have a lot of stairs, I’d need someone to carry me down. I’m mostly quiet, but can be very vocal when I want something – I don’t bark much, just make “grumbling” noises, and I will whine and howl occasionally. I have a little “spunk” to me and will sit up and beg for a treat! Overall, I’m just a fantastic little dog — very relaxed and easy going, and super sweet toward everyone. If you’d like to learn more about me or meet me, please call Safe Place for Pets at (719) 359-0201 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. I can’t wait to meet you!!
Size: 20 lbs.
