Scrappy and Leo
We adopted Leo in 2010 from a local rescue group. Leo is a senior long hair miniature dachshund who came to us after a year of being in the rescue. He spent part-time at the foster home and the rest of the time kenneled at the rescue. People were nervous of him due to aggression issues. There was just something about him that caught our attention.
He is doing well although he had to have back surgery a year ago for IVDD (common in the breed). Last summer as I ended up working full-time he had a difficult time, so we tried doggy daycare until we could find a companion for Leo.
In came Scrappy who is a sweetheart. He is a 5 yr old Wire Haired Dachshund Fox Terrier cross (Foxie Doxie). The two boys are inseparable and play together very well.
My husband and I definitely believe in the saying “Please Adopt….Don't Shop.”
