From a reader in Texas:
I found this beautiful ochre dachsund corgi mix in Austin, TX, standing in front of the middle school where I work, saying hi to all the students. She was so friendly and sociable (and in good shape) that she had to have been owned by someone. I took her to the vet, no chip, but I was able to take care of all her shots. I’ve posted ads, put up fliers, and even gone door to door in the surrounding neighborhoods to no avail. It’s possible she was abandoned since the middle school area is decently rural. We can’t keep her because of our two cats who have been in a constant state of freaking out ever since the dog came home with us, but we would love to find someone who can give her a great home.
She is ridiculously sweet, obedient, a little spazzy, but a nice dog, great with kids and other dogs. She’s fully trained, responds to commands and is just a great medium sized dog. Vet pegged her at around 4-8 years old, no major issues other than some less than stellar dental, all the other tests for bad things came back negative. If we can’t find a good home for her, we’re going to have to surrender her to a no-kill shelter, but we really would prefer to be able to find her a place ourselves.
If any of your readers are in the Austin, TX area and they want to adopt this really sweet dog [please let me know in the comments (personal info removed)]…I’m just doing what I can to find a home for this dog. She is very sweet and deserves one.
If you think you can help, make contact via the comments or email me and I will forward it to the reader.
