"Perhaps you can get word back to the previous owner that I adopted Sammie. Without actively looking I had been keeping an eye out for a dachshund/dachshund-mix that would be a good companion for Dexter. It's hard to tell in the stressful environment of the shelter (even Dexter was acting weird), but I think she'll be a good match for us. She was napping in a kennel with two other small dogs when we got there. We took her to the "puppy room" and spent about 20 minutes with her. She was timid but was warming up to us before we left. She's to be vetted and spayed tomorrow. We'll pick her up Saturday."
