|ello, my name is Debra and I’m Frankie’s foster mom. Frankie’s owner went to Heaven . She is a Dacshund about 14 years old, has all shots, spayed, microchip. She just this week had a complete dental - and at that time it was discovered she has a heart murmur-but that does not seem to effect her. In her foster home she hangs out with 2 other weenies and a German shepherd and does fine- but can be a grumpy grannie around her treats and food. SHE MUST HAVE A DOG DOOR to a yard. She is used to this and without one can get upset and have accidents- here she is out the dog door several times a day and night and has not had one accident. It appears she can not hear. She loves to sit on the couch with you or snuggle in bed . I would say no cats. Kids fine. But I think Frankie would love a mellow quiet house??
