Sound of silence: a dachshund named Flake

Think of the hush of new-fallen snow and the whisper of snow falling on snow and you have the sound of Flake, a fascinating 2-year-old dachshund. With a beautiful cream color and a tail lush like a horse’s mane, Flake pads gently on silent feet and never whines, never barks and is never bossy. He is more like a cat than a dog. Flake, however, takes little notice of cats, but is affectionate and fine with children. He is solidly built, unlike the popular fragile types often seen in Japan. Slightly nervous about meeting new people, Flake needs just a bit of time before he will come and rest his head on your knee. A class act, this little fellow will stay by your side with a quiet and endearing tenderness.

If you are interested in adopting Flake, email ARK at Tokyoark@arkbark.net or call 050-1557-2763 Monday to Saturday (bilingual) for more information.
