PET OF THE MONTH
PET OF THE MONTH - 10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM to 10/31/2013 11:59:00 PM
Meet Oakley! Oakley is an adorable 7-year-old dachshund mix, and
she weighs approximately 30 lbs. She may be considered a "senior"
in the dog world, but Oakley still has a long life ahead of her, as
dogs her size generally live into their mid-teen years.
Oakley's sweet nature and soulful brown eyes have made her a
staff favorite here at Home 'Fur' Good. She is a very mellow girl.
As you can see from her picture, she is also very patient, and
she's willing to put up with some good-natured Halloween costume
Oakley's favorite activities include receiving belly rubs, going
on short walks, and napping! She would make a great movie-watching
buddy. Don't let Oakley's laid-back nature fool you, though; she's
extremely loyal and loving, too. She gets very excited when she
sees someone she knows; her ears perk up and her tail wags a mile a
minute! She may even try to jump up into your lap (which isn't
easy, given her stubby dachshund legs)! When you stop petting
her, she may gently nudge your hand as if to say, "Don't forget
about me!" She really wants nothing more than to love and be
Oakley can be dog-selective at times, especially when she feels
protective of her "person" when she's on a leash. She may be shy
when you first meet her, but if you give her some treats, she'll
become your new best friend in no time! Oakley had surgery several
months ago to remove some fatty tumors on her belly. All the tumors
were all benign, so she has a clean bill of health!
Please give Oakley a chance to become a part of your home!
