This week’s Pup Close & Purrsonal comes to us from Lisa Scarbrough. Lisa is the Supervisor of LHP’s Accounts Payable department.

Lisa has had a dog all of her life. At one time, she had 6 miniature Pinschers, a Golden Retriever, and a Pit Bull. 4 of the miniature Pinschers and Golden Retriever were given away to family and friends. She kept the mother and father of the miniature Pinschers and the Pit Bull. Unfortunately, she lost all 3 dogs to illness and old age a couple of years ago and hasn’t had a dog since.

A few weeks ago, she was approached about a miniature Dachshund that needed a new home, due to his current family being Military that were frequently moving and couldn’t take care of him.

Lisa accepted the challenge. His name is Levi. She lovingly calls him Bullet and Lil Guy. She’s working on his training, currently he has mastered “No!”, “What do you have?”, and “Drop it!”

He loves to run, play with his toys, chew on anything, and snuggle.

Speaking of beloved four-footed friends, The Scruff reminds everyone: please spay or neuter your pets.

With gratitude & coffee,
