FEATURED FOSTER DOG
Age: 7 years and 2 months (est)
Paddy is a sweet boy. He is a long, lean, and strong red dachshund boy who came into our rescue on St. Patrick's Day. He likes the dogs in the foster house. He loves people. He gives the softest kisses and takes treats gently from your hand. His tail is always wagging. Paddy is crate trained and is housebroken. He will let you know when he needs to go out. Paddy is also good with children. Due to his back, older/considerate children would be best. Paddy is playful and likes to play with toys and the other dogs in the house.
Paddy came into our rescue with back issues and by the next morning, he was dragging his legs. He had back surgery right away. He went through hydrotherapy and cold lazer treatments. He even had rehab in his foster home. He has been released by his vets for adoption. They all loved him! They were sad to see him go.
It has now been 8 weeks since his surgery. He has no issues with potting on his own, he walks and even dances in circles when it is time to eat. He scratches himself and he rolls around in the grass. He can sit down. His back end is a little wobbly but does seem to get stronger with time and exercise. He can't jump and should not be allowed to jump off or on anything. He will never be perfect due to his back but he is a great dog. He is full of love and full of life and will just need an adopter that will be careful with his back and understand his needs. He won't disappoint!
What is DDRTX?
Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas is a rescue organization, operated primarily volunteers, in the heart of Texas that is dedicated to the health, welfare, and happiness of our dachshund friends. We are based in Central and South Central Texas and have volunteers in many parts of Texas. We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. As such, we must rely heavily on donations and contributions, which are a necessity in order to continue to be able to pay the costs of veterinary care and other necessary expenses for each of our dachshunds. Diamond Dachshund has rescued, rehabilitated and placed from 100 to 200 dachshunds each year since our incorporation in 2003. We strive to find the right home for each dog's individual personality and needs so that the placement is permanent and both the dogs and the families who adopt them are equally happy.
