And now a few words from me:
Hi – I’m Slipper… not like the old worn-in kind of footwear… more like the pretty bejeweled kind worn by a princess. I’m a fabulous 10 years young, and can keep up with dogs much younger than me. My previous owner moved into a nursing home, and her family dumped me at a shelter. I was scared and lonely, but thankfully CDRO came to my rescue and I’m looking forward to a new beginning. I enjoy walks, car rides, napping in sunbeams and helping in the kitchen with meal preparation. I like to be fairly active and also enjoy playing with toys (watch out squeakers!) and chewing on nylabones. If you’re looking for a new adventure filled with hugs, kisses and snuggles, so am I!
And now a few words from my foster family:
Slipper is an absolute doll! She fit into our family right away and quickly learned our daily routines with no problem. She is not destructive in any way and sleeps all night long on a soft dog bed with lots of blankets (she could be persuaded to share the big bed too). She does not exhibit any signs of separation anxiety. Slipper does bark when visitors arrive or when she sees feral cats or squirrels stalking the bird feeders… she’s a typical dachshund! This little ‘gem’ will become a beloved family member is no time at all!
