Tuesday’s Tails: Featuring Lacey – An Adoptable Dachshund
Today’s Featured Adoptable Dog is Lacey
Lacey is a smooth-haired brindle Dachshund
available for adoption from Noble County PAWS
At 13 pounds, Lacey falls into the “tweenie” size range
(larger than a Mini, smaller than a Standard)
She is adult, but not senior, at six years old.
Lacey lived with her former owner since being purchased as a puppy, but he recently moved and could not take her where he was moving to. She is now in foster care, and from what I understand, she is a very sweet girl. She loves other pets, and like many Dachshunds, Lacey loves to be in your lap or on your bed under the covers. She has not been socialized with children, and would not be suitable for a home with toddlers. We called the foster mom (and head of the rescue, I believe), and she was firm on this. I will admit that I am glad about that – it’s for the safety of everyone. Lacey is housebroken, and because her former owner lived in an apartment, she is used to going outside on a leash. I’m sure it wouldn’t take her long to get used to going in a backyard to take care of business if that’s what her adopters prefer.
As Dachshund coat colors, markings, and patterns go, brindle is one of the rarer marking types. I follow many, many, Dachshund rescues, groups, clubs, etc., and see thousands and thousands of pictures of Doxies; and of all colors/markings, I see brindle the least. I know this is not important to most people, but I know that some folks like to have a “one of a kind” dog. Well, a brindle Dachshund isn’t exactly one of a kind, but you’re likely not going to run into anyone else with a brindle in your area. Possible, just not likely. Many people might even say, “Ohhhh… I didn’t even know Doxies came in brindle!” You’ll be the envy of Doxie lovers everywhere… okay, maybe just in your neck of the Doxie-loving woods. 😉
But Lacey doesn’t know she’s a brindle beauty and she doesn’t want you to love her for her looks, anyway. She’s just looking for a new family that will give her the same unconditional love that she’s ready to give. Let’s try to find Lacey a new home soon.
