I am so grateful to have an option for our most loved Dachshund. Joey is about 8 years old, a loving black and tan. He has some severe medical needs that we can't provide for him due to financial issues.
He is severely overweight, blind, and I believe a diabetic. We have not been able to take him to a vet, and now his "mother" is moving to an apartment that will only let her have 2 dogs. Joey's litter mate, and another Dachshund have lived together all their lives. It saddens us greatly to give him up, but for his sake it is time.
Is he a candidate for your rescue efforts? I sure hope so. Please let me know. My daughter can't bear to be the one to let him go, so I will be in town the end of June, and would like to relinquish him at that time. I hope to hear from you soon.
