Update: Holly has been adopted before I could post this entry- please consider her other canine friends that are available for adoption.
If you are looking for a low-key, smallish dog, please consider Holly, a 4 years old dachshund. When you meet her at first, she grins at you, flashing all her teeth and looking quite fierce until you notice that her tail is wagging madly. She’s not challenging you; she’s being submissive and apparently, showing her teeth is one sign of submission.
Once she’s out of her kennel, though, she’s as happy as a dog can be, and she loves to be walked, sitting with you in the sun, and being pampered with belly rubs. She gets along with other dogs very well, and would be an excellent second dog.
