All in the Family



Hi, I'm Rosie! I'm a black and tan miniature Dachshund, about 3 years old, and I am my Mama's girl! Somehow I got lost from my original family and ended up as a stray in a high-kill shelter in Kentucky. I didn't have any fur on my ears or back legs, I was underweight and very scared. I had heard that dogs like me don't usually make it out of that shelter, but lucky for me, Mom worked there! She was walking thru the room my where my kennel was when she spotted me, scared and huddled in the corner. She bent down and talked to me with such a soft, kind voice. I was still scared at first, but after about 20 minutes (Mom is patient!), I inched my way towards her and let her pet me. That's when I knew she was the one, and I picked her to be my new Mom; lucky for her! Mom takes such good care of me! I grew all my hair back, and I LOVE to eat! My favorite things are breakfast, dinner, and treats - I do some really cool tricks for treats, too, like sit, down, sit up, and even play dead! Mom tells me I can't eat too much though; she says I'll turn into a fatdachshund...whatever that is. We take lots of walks so I get my exercise. I also love to chew on squeaky toys and rawhides, and my brother Jackson. He's younger than me, so I like to pick on him. We have lots of fun wrestling and running dachshund races through Mom's house. I also like to chase squirrels and chipmunks in the backyard; I haven't caught one yet but I sure try hard! I also really like to visit Grandma's house - she always has something yummy for me, and gives me lots of hugs and kisses! When I'm not doing any of those fun things, I'm in my favorite place of all: snuggled under a blanket with Mom!
