12 Strays of Christmas: Meet Tex

Posted: Updated:
DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

Have you thought this season about opening up your heart and home to a sweet animal in need of one?

This year, we introduce you to "The 12 Strays of Christmas."

WAFF 48 News is partnering with Decatur Animal Shelter to share with you 12 animals in need of homes this holiday season. We will introduce you to a new pet each day through December 22.

Meet Tex

Tex is a 6-year-old brown and black male Dachshund Beagle blend, sometimes called a Doxle. He's a 14 lb. cutie pie with an eager little face, a Beagle voice, and a long body with gnarly little Dachshund legs.  He's good with most dogs his own size, but is leery around bigger dogs, probably been picked on by one at some point and like anyone bullied, doesn't want to hang out with them anymore. He LOVES to go for walks on the leash so come take him out and let him show off his new Christmas sweater!
