Sali is a super sweet, easygoing, 1-year-old Terrier/Dachshund mix with a smile that goes from ear to ear. A word of warning, her smile is contagious – you’ll soon find yourself smiling once in Sali’s presence! Sali’s favorite way to greet you is to employ the stop, flop, and roll maneuver with the full expectation that she will receive belly rubs. Sometimes, she’ll get in a few doggie kisses before she employs the maneuver. Sali loves laps and will sit in yours for hours. Sali also enjoys being held. Some of Sali’s other favorite activities include eating, car rides, and walks. Good thing she likes walks so much considering how fond she is of her food!
