“My name is Kali and I need a new home! I am a 13 year old dachshund mix. At 16 pounds, I’d like to think I’m the perfect size for a lap, or a spot on your couch. I don’t take much room up in the bed either! I am a very snuggly, loving girl who just wants to be the one and only in my home.

“I do not appreciate the children that have joined my lifelong family. Kids are just too unpredictable and I feel as though I need to protect myself. I have spent my life living without other animals. When I see dogs on walks, I’ll admit, I act up. Even when my people tried to introduce me to other dogs, I didn’t like it. So if you have a home without dogs, cats or kids, and you are looking for a companion, we just might be a good match!

“My people will tell you I am not much of a barker. I will let you know when the doorbell rights-IF I hear it. My hearing and vision aren’t as sharp as they were when I was a youngster. But that’s to be expected, just like the arthritis I have. My people give me joint support to help with my arthritis, I appreciate that and I hope my new family will continue to do this for me. As a senior girl, it is very important that I receive regular veterinary care and good quality dog food to stay in good health. I’d love to be someone’s best friend for many years to come!

“At this time I don’t get out for walks much. My people do take me out on leash for potty breaks. If you have a fenced yard where I can go out to relieve myself, that’s great! I am up for more walks, are you?? Maybe we can work on my behavior if we come across another dog? It’d be nice to learn that I don’t have to scare off other dogs and protect you from them!

“I can stay alone in the house for a bit before I need a potty break. But if you have to leave me longer than 2-3 hours, I can use a potty pad. I will find a spot on your bed or your couch to hang out on and wait for your return. Because of the children in my current home, I’m being kept alone behind a gate. This is not fun at all. I am longing for a home with adults who can appreciate all of the love I can offer. My people will be sad to let me go but they know it’s the best thing for me, to make me happy again. I am ready to start the next chapter of my new life!”
