"I could just as easily be named Mellow as Mellie. Yes, I am Mellow Mellie, an adorable chiweenie who would love nothing better than to snuggle into some warm blankets at your house and love you forever. I’m 8 years old, which isn’t as old as my face looks – that’s just my coloring, which in the dachshund world is known as dapple. That means kind of a white or light tan background with brown speckles. I’m a laid-back girl who is good on the leash, but I can be a bit of a scamp, too. My shirt says “I ate Santa’s cookies” – and I bet I would!"
