    I just met and fell in love with "Bitsy"...we have a true, mutual admiration society going on here, but I don't know exactly what she is.
    I am thinking maybe small beagle and dachsund. What do you think?
    (oh, yes, she is a keeper :wink: )

    well, for some reason, today, I can only do one pic at a time. It took several minutes, I will try posting one which shows how long her body is.

    She looks like a daschsund for sure, but maybe a little bit beagle and maybe some terrier? I don't know, but she sure is cute!

    thanks, mrsj, I think the 'terrier' look is bc she was wagging her tail so hard. She is an affection 'hound'....lol, but she has come to the right place :wink:

    i've had a lot of dogs, and mutt seems to be my best match :wink:
    Her body is the only thing that puzzles me....very long.
    Face really looks very beagle-ish, but she is 100% sweetheart :D

    Good thing she doesn't eat much, and appears perfectly healthy and quite happy, if I do say so myself.
    I do wonder if she has 'issues', bc she sits on the back porch waiting for me, all day, and all night. Almost makes me feel a little guilty!
    She plays with all the cats though.
    A stray cat showed up two days after her, and I wonder if they came from the same place, they seem very familiar with each other...kind of "Homeward Bound" like. :D

    Well, Bitsy is one adorable dog. Can she stay in the house? Is she trustworthy? She looks like such a sweetie pie. Cuddly??!!

    What a cutie. Love the name Bitsy.

    I DNA tested my dogs. The results are hilarious. Totally worth the money.

    You can read some funny results (and people's reaction to them) on amazon. Just search "dog dna test."

    it's just incredible to me, that she was dumped out here, but it's certainly not the first time.
    Hubby went all over, asking if she belonged to anyone. All answers were no.
    She was quite thin and hungry first few days, so she hasn't been missed much. I'd be out beating the bushes for a pup like this.
    She has had a litter of puppies, but hubby says she is a grown pup herself. Will have to get her fixed soon.
    She's already joined to me at the hip, and hubby has put up a fence to keep her in backyard.
    I have a washroom that is just like a little house, she sleeps in. I am going to put up some insulation and already have wall boards. She will be spoilt :D

    Where in Florida do you Live? Here in Sarasota we are having a huge problem with pets just abandon. It just breaks my heart that a family has to give up their pets when they loose their jobs, but I understand if they can't feed their family they can't feed a pet. That's how we got our oldest Whippet, he was a rescue and he is always so grateful he has us as a family. He talks with his eyes. Glad you two found each other it was fate.

    DD and I live about 3 1/2 miles apart, and ppl are always dropping off animals.
    She now feeds 8 cats. Wonder how ppl know where to drop them? hmmm, maybe Gaigais', tag line is correct :wink:

    she may indeed have issues. after all, she was dumped. and who knows what happened to her pups? she's probably always going to be "needy". all the affection in the world won't be enough. i had a cat like that. glued to me. he was only happy when i was there. wanted to be petted and hugged every minute. put his arms up to be carried. there's a lot to be said for a pet like that. they are the best company in the world.

    can she come in at all?

    Well QC hope you don't mind I borrowed your picture but here is proof positive she is part beagle! This is my pure bred blue tick beagle Maggie. Think they look alike aside from differant colors and the longer body??

    I am so glad you adopted her. She looks part terrier for sure, I had a rat terrier that had the same colorings and they can be about that size as well. Whatever she is she is a sweetheart and I am glad she found you. My house is the same as yours, they always seem to just show up for some reason.
