This is Betty. She is an 18-month-old Schweenie, which is a mix between a Shih Tzu and a long haired Dachshund. I could not wish for a better first dog because she is so relaxed in every situation. Betty loves people of all ages and all kinds of animals.
She loves to run around on the grass, and she is very fast. The other exercise she enjoys is to swim in the river, and she looks just like an otter in the water.
Her favorite toys are plush hedgehogs, and she has got quite a collection.
Betty loves to eat chicken, rice, veggies and fuits. —Nicola Pape, Santa Rosa, Calif.
