Meet Sandy Mae!  She's a gracious, senior lady standard dachshund mix.  While we don't know her back story, she's obviously had a loving home at one time.  She came in spayed, heartworm negative, and completely house trained. 

Sandy is in the early stages of dog dementia or CCD - Canine Cognitive Dysfunction.  But don't let that concern you, she is a wonderful, sweet, and calm pup!   She recognizes her foster family and is happy to meet new people.  She follows her family around and hangs out where her foster sibling dogs are.  She loves taking naps in her dog bed and keeps herself busy with kongs and exploring the house.

She gets along with dogs - big and small - and doesn't mind the cat either.  She explores the foster home often and is always wanting to be where you are.  She doesn't bolt out the door and will stay by your side when outside.  She doesn't care too much for toys, but will look longingly into your eyes for treats!

If you would like to meet this beautiful lady, she can be seen at various adoption events around San Antonio or schedule a meet and greet!  If you would like to sponsor her while she waits for her forever home, please click the Sponsor This Pet button above.

PUPDATE:  Sandy Mae is doing well.  She loves to hang out with her foster family and is a wonderful help around the house!  She perks up when going for walks and gets a bounce in her step.  Nighttime can be a little confusing for her, but once she sees her humans, she relaxes and will drift back to sleep.
