Updated: April 6th 6:30pm

Sissy the year old lovable miniature Dachshund has got a new address, thanks to Larry Farrow of Brownwood, Texas. Animal Services Manager Aaron Vannoy said “Farrow first learned of Sissy’s impending doom through the ‘KEAN Critters’ blog. Mr. Farrow contacted me and we made arrangements for him to adopt Sissy.”

Original Story: April 2nd, 2013

Sissy is a one year old adorable miniature Dachshund that was turned in by her previous owners because they “didn’t want her anymore.” Animal Services Manager Aaron Vannoy says “since she’s an owner turn she will be highly sought after, so hurry to the Abilene Animal Shelter and adopt Sissy today.” She only weighs 11 pounds and is now vaccinated for Canine-Distemper and Parvo-virus . She is very well behaved and will stand up in your hands as you’ll see in the pictures.

Sissy is a very shy little lady that’s black, tan and has some white markings. Vannoy believes she’s possibly a full blood Miniature Dachshund. Shelter employee Larry said “remember Dachshunds are excellent athletes and require regular walks.”

Sissy just longs for someone that will love her unconditionally. Can you help save Sissy? Tell everyone within earshot and help spread the word about the KEAN-Critters up for adoption. Tell anyone that will listen and/or appreciate a story of a pet that needs love. Because these KEAN-Critters really need to find homes right away or else they’ll be put down. Please help.
