Matilda is a peach! From what we can tell, she is a cute little dachshund-chihuahua mix. Even though we don't know her back story because she was found as a stray and taken to a local shelter, we do know she seems to love everyone, human, canine and feline. She loves her toys and playing with other dogs. She loves sleeping in the big bed at night with her family pack. She is not crate-trained and will need help with housetraining. She needs a securely fenced yard. She can climb chain link or wire over rail fences so she really needs a wooden fence with vertical slats for her own safety. She also will try digging underneath the fence! She has to be watched like a hawk. Matilda has some staining on her face from her eyes tearing. As a potential adopter, you must have an excellent reference from your vet. ***Applicants must be willing to drive to Ellicott City, Maryland (10 miles south of Baltimore) to meet and adopt Matilda.****
