Dachshund Mix
10 years

Howdy! I'm Opie, and I am the World's Happiest Dog! I am sooooo cute and friendly, and I make everyone I meet smile. I am such a good boy. I am good with other dogs and good with kitties (though I like to try to steal their food!), I'm housetrained and trustworthy in the house, and I am so fun to be around. I have a funny little walk, most likely due to being clipped by a car while I was a stray. When I came to Young at Heart, the vet xrayed me, and I have an old pelvic fracture that is mostly healed. There isn't any special treatment needed for it, but I may have my silly little walk for life now. It doesn't bother me! My bloodwork shows that I have some kidney changes, so my new family will just need to keep an eye on that. I may need a special diet and kidney support down the road. But for now I just run and play and roll and love and just enjoy life to the fullest each and every day. I know I'm a lucky boy! And some family will be very lucky to make me a part of their home!
