Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Marilyn and I am a senior dachshund cross.  I am 10 years old and I finally have life figured out!  I know how to be gentle and quiet at all the right times. I love turning circles, when I get happy about food, or when my foster family comes home from an errand. I enjoy time outside in the yard. I do not enjoy time in a crate but if I have to…OK. However I am dependable in the house during short errands, or good in the car for short rides. It makes me feel special. And I will walk properly on a leash and smile nice when meeting new people. 


My favorite time of the day is any time my foster dad is home and can share a pork skin with me!


My hope for my forever family is one that wants to hear all my stories!  The perfect family could include loving, respectful, children like the 8 year old foster boy I live with. I so want to be the perfect companion to anyone that has time for me. I love to be petted. I would love to be that special only dog, because I have waited a long time for that.  I do get along with all the other dogs in my foster home both young and old.  


My dream forever person would be someone that understands my age and my needs. I am house trained!  I will go to the door and ask to be let out. I am on some inexpensive medication that helps me deal with a minor bladder issue. A doggie door might help me do better.


I do not have any bad habits so that makes me an easy keeper.  I do have some funny talents that will make you laugh and I know my purpose is to make a new family fall in love with me. I have goofy big ears and a happy smile. I am a survivor that wants to live!  My past hasn’t always been easy but I have learned many secrets I can share with you!  


Marilyn is a 10 year old senior gal weighing in at 15 pounds!
