Sally, George and Walter

George and Walter, the long-haired mini dapple dachshunds, bring plenty of joy to Sally Newton’s life.

George, 18 months, came from Sydney and Walter, 10 months, came from the Sunshine Coast before they eventually made their home with Sally in Beaudesert.

They love walks around town with Sally and are never far away from her at home.

Here’s what Sally has to say about George and Walter:

“They’re always here, they’re good company, they’re sweet, they’re fun to socialise with and they’re just good pets,” she said.

“They have very different personalities. George is more reserved; he likes to be on his own and if there’s lots of noise or I’m cooking he’ll go and hide, but Walter’s the crazy one who just wants to jump, go nuts and be rowdy.”
