I got adopted, but you can sponsor one of my friends who is still at the shelter!

#13592 * Birth date: 10-19-2000  *  Female

Dachshund mix * Arrival date: 10-19-2012

Transfer in from Clovis Animal Services 

I pronounce my name “Sweetie,” in spite of its unusual spelling, and I certainly am a sweetie!  I am one of the most friendly dogs at the shelter, so friendly, in fact, that I have been used as a shelter educational outreach dog!  I helped to teach 110 first graders about how to properly approach a dog… and had the incredibly fun task of making friends with all 110 kids!  My tail never stops wagging when I am with people!  I am really good with other dogs, too.  As a senior animal here at the shelter, it is hard to say what the future will bring.  Many people do not want to adopt a dog as old as I am, even though I have such a sunny personality and still have more years to live.  I would make a great pet for someone who is looking for a companion who is eternally happy just to be with them.  I am a good lap-dog and I love lounging on benches or going for walks.  Whether or not you are sponsoring me, I would still love to meet you and become your friend!
