Dachshund Rescue South Florida Part 2: 2 Surviving Dogs of 4 Rescued

  In Part 2 of the Dachshund Rescue effort, get an inside understanding of what rescuers deal with whenever they are called to take in a dog. Here's an account of 2 dogs that survived out of 4 rescued. This rescue story will give you an idea of the condition of dogs that ALL RESCUES deal with every week, for almost every dog. You will be surprised to read how these dogs come into rescues, which is why they need donations to get these dogs medical care. Just Read This Story (At least these 2 dogs lived, unlike the 2 we blogged about yesterday):

 Dachshund Rescue South Florida: The Joy and Heartbreak of Rescue

   In March, the Dachshund Rescue of South Florida received a call from someone who claimed he was "watching" 4 senior Dachshunds, all in very bad health, after their "owner left them behind." - It was obvious he was their owner (not a parent, because these dogs were in such horrible shape). Here's their account of what happened: 

Ethel is an 8 year old female, petite at only 7.5 lbs with a mouth full of rotten teeth and that need to be removed. Her blood work is far from perfect, but no immediately life threatening concerns. She is the only one of the 4 without a significant heart issue.
2 Dachshunds in better shape than the 2 in this story
Sweet Harold. He is about the same age as the others (about 8), also small and helpless at 7 lbs. Also with a mouth full of rotten teeth and a growth on his foot that needs to be removed. His blood work is like Ethel's....not perfect, but workable, but with a significant heart murmur and cataracts in his eyes. Despite all he has been through, he is the sweetest of boys and we hope that we can provide both him and Ethel with the love, safety and comfort they have been lacking for so long.
PLEASE Donate for their care and for the care provided to the other 2 dogs that didn't have the chance to have a better life:

As always, the rescuese welcome your support in a donation of any size, and even $1 gets us closer to our goal. Even if you are not able to donate, we still invite you to leave a message of love and support as your comment alone helps to get their story into more people's feeds.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
