Tuesday's Tails-Prissy, A Senior Long Haired Dachshund

  I would like to introduce Prissy

Prissy is a 10 yr old dachshund who was surrendered by her owner about a year ago. Her owner was moving and couldn't take Prissy. 

Prissy always looks so sad. She doesn't like living in a shelter

Prissy is a long haired dachshund who can be a little snappy. BUT, I think we misunderstood Prissy. Something happened a couple weeks ago at our facility that totally shocked Ma, the volunteer and a staff member.

Prissy asked to be petted!! She not only wanted to be petted but she DEMANDED to be petted. When our volunteer stopped petting her she would push her head under the volunteers hand. After about 40 minutes Prissy offered BELLY! Yes!! She wanted her belly rubbed! 

Who knows how long its been since Prissy had a good belly rubbing but she sure enjoyed it. Prissy had a whole different attitude after she got some attention and she even allowed us to brush her. 
This was a HUGE breakthrough! Seeing Prissy so much happier because she was getting attention that she yearned for made everyone smile. Everyone who was there sat on the floor during lunch and Prissy made her rounds to them all for some one on one attention. 
Prissy asked me to PLEASE, get her out of the Humane Society and into a home that would be patient with her. She hasn't had the easiest life and she really acts like she is afraid of children. I don't think kids treated her right in her old home. I can't say for sure but she gets really tense when she sees children. 
So let me show you some photos of Prissy that we took the day she asked for attention and as you see in the photo above ,she was sad. She is miserable living in a kennel. I don't blame her, I would be miserable too.
Ma had used the flash but just look at that smile! 

Here she is without the flash

Yes, she can be a little sassy. We all love sassy girls 

Pushing her head up under our volunteers hand. 
The proof that Prissy loves to be petted! 

If you have room in your heart and your home, Prissy would love to meet you. She doesn't like to be picked up but she sure loves to be petted and talked to. You will need patience with Prissy because she is learning TRUST. She is really a sweet little girl who minds well. She has a face that will light up a room and once she gets to know you, she will be your best friend.
