Dottie Fuchs of De Soto said her 9-year-old dachshund, Clemintine, doesn’t object strongly to being dressed in costumes, but she does not necessarily like it, as shown in the photo taken on Valentine’s Day in 2018.
“That’s why she’s dressed like this,” Fuchs said. “She’ll let me do this. The thing is, you point a camera at her and she always looks sad. But, she cooperates.”
Clemintine is a good girl, Fuchs said.
“She has a very good personality. She’s very obedient, like when she gets her nails clipped,” Fuchs said. “She’s just a very a very well-behaved, good dog.
Clemintine also plays well with others, Fuchs said.
“I also have two little Chihuahuas, Stewart and Selina. She gets along with my other pets just great. They’re all friends.”
Fuchs said she took in Clemintine several years ago when she found her wandering around and could not locate her owner.
“We rescued her off of a highway,” Fuchs said. “She was in the middle of the highway with cars and trucks going by. There was no identification. She was only about a year old. We put ads in the paper and looked at posters. We never got a response. We did everything and never heard anything.”
