|Harry now in his new foster home|
We transported Harry the black and tan/dapple, 6 year old dachshund from White Marsh, MD to foster mom, April, southeast of Washington, DC. Rescue transports cover 60 miles and people that do them either live on one end or the other, or in the middle. Either way, it requires several hours to do them. Our was a 3 1/2 hour trip.
Harry was given up to the rescue from his famlly in the northeastern U.S. because, once again, a family with a toddler was nipped by the dog. Toddlers should NEVER be left unattended with dogs. They pull, pole and hit dogs - and if you were a dog, wouldn't you nip the little troublemakers,too? Of course. So, instead of working with the toddler, people dump and abandon a dog that's been growing up with them for 6 years. (Can you tell this makes us mad?!!!)

Here are some of the comments we saw from the other transporters:

NOTE FROM HIS NEW FOSTER MOM APRIL - I would like to say thank you to everyone that helped harry today. He is a sweet Lil thing. He took a real liking to my son and me off the bat.
WHAT IS NEXT FOR HARRY? - Harry's foster mom April will take Harry to the vet, get him updated on shots, and get him a dental cleaning and freshen his breath. Harry's foster mom will also take note of her personality, habits, training, etc. Once Harry is all vetted, he'll be on the Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue Website and will be available for adoption. Look for Harry on www.c2cdr.org by the first or second week of June.
