Elkie is an intelligent, clever tweenie dachshund who was a rescue. I've had her since 2006 and have found her to be a delightful companion. She has me wrapped around her little black fingernail.
She was the companion of my elderly dachshund, Phoebe, who sadly passed away after 16 years in 2008.
Elkie is a delight to be around and has tremendous hunting instincts (especially for squirrels), but I never let her actually catch them.
