Find-a-Friend Friday: Ali

November 12th, 2010 11:18 am by Kelly


Ali is a black, tan and white basset hound/dachshund mix – though her short, thick legs, long body, droopy ears and large head give her that classic wiener dog look.

I combed through dozens of Petfinder listings this morning, looking for THE perfect dog to introduce y’all to. Problem is, they’re all perfect! Every animal is special and unique in her own way, and the many canines whose stories I pored over today are no exception. Finally I settled on dear Ali, for no reason other than that she reminds me of my own dachshund friend Ralphie, who underwent surgery to remove his right eye yesterday (melanoma; we’ll know next week whether it was malignant) and is recovering on my lap as we speak. Point being, Ali is just one of thousands of wonderful, loving individuals in need of a home at this very moment. If you’re looking to welcome a new nonhuman friend into your family, please consider adopting – rescuing – one of these many Friends in need.

Okay, so. On to Ali, who is currently staying with Animals Best Friends in Independence, MO. Here’s what he foster peeps have to say about this lovely lady:


I know that look! Miss Ali is about to stir up some trouble.
