ADOPTED!!Meet beautiful, petite Shawnee, a very sweet young Dachshund/Chihuahua mix that is the definition of a lap dog. This girl's favorite spot is one where she can observe the world from a higher level than her little legs can provide. Not that her legs are from her Dachshund side - nope, she's got Chihuahua legs, long enough to compete with Gisele's. What she got from her "Weenie" parentage is her sleek, lean body and that adorable little face.
We think that Shawnee may actually have some Shawnee Indian blood in her. The original tribe was based in the Mid-Atlantic area and roamed from Maryland to S Carolina and west to Kentucky and Illinois. This may explain why our Shawnee was found roaming around Fulton all by herself, she was looking for her people. The Indians were also famous for their ceremonial mound building, hence Shawnee's desire to be higher than everyone else.
The Algonquian language best translates Shawnee as "moderate, warm weather" and that is the definition of this dog, not too energetic, not too big, not too loud. Just about perfect.
To meet this perfect little pup, stop out to the shelter and ask for Shawnee, the "Not Too" dog.
