Pax is a 4-year-old gentle giant.  He weighs around 35 pounds.  He was named Pax because the name means peace. The vet had been calling him Walter the Great, so he is Pax Walter the Great.  He evokes the spirit of peace during the holiday season. 
 He loves everyone including little human people.  He is good with the other dogs in the foster home. Pax gives gentle kisses.  He is housebroken.  He has not had 1 accident since he has been in his foster home.  He will whine when he needs to go out to potty. 
Pax came to us a little broken.  He had been hit by a car.  The driver thankfully stopped to help him and got him some temporary help.  Then Diamond Dachshund Rescue was called to take him in.  One of his back legs is broken in 4 places.  He had surgery right away.  Pax has pins in his leg right now to help it heal.  He also has 3 fractures in his pelvis. 
Despite the fact that he has to be in a lot of pain, he is the sweetest boy.  He will need about 8 weeks of recovery time, maybe longer.  He may be facing another surgery if his pelvis doesn't heal the way it needs too.  Time will tell on that.  In the meantime, he is living with his foster family and getting the care and rest that he needs to heal.  He loves everyone he has met so far.  His tail is always wagging. When healed and ready for adoption, Pax will make someone a wonderful companion
.UPDATE: 12/19/19 -  Pax went in for his 4 week post op check-up.  All looks good and he is healing.  We go back in two weeks to have more X-rays done to see when he can have the wire removed and his neuter done.
UPDATE:  12/24/19 - Back to the vets today.  He has been licking and chewing on the bandages and caused a skin infection.  The vets cleaned it up, put on new bandages and back on antibiotic.  Pax is not happy that now he has to wear the cone of shame :(.
UPDATE 1/4/20 - Pax had his 6 week post op check up today.  He is healing very well.  The pelvis is also healing as hoped.  We go back on 1/29/20 to get his pins removed and neutered.  He is doing so well and everyone loves him :).
UPDATE: 1/10/20 - Pax has had a set back.  He has been hurting since his x-rays were done.  He is on new medications today hoping they will help.  He isn't putting weight on his leg now.  The vet did say it can happen and we are watching it for 4 more days.  If not better, then a trip back to the vet.
UPDATE 1/29/20 - Pax Walter had the hardware removed today and was neutered.  He is doing very well.  He is a little sore but the vet says he will be ready for adoption in 2 weeks.
UPDATE 2/8/2020 - Poor Pax has now developed kennel cough..  One more tip to the vets and now one more week on meds before he can be ready for adoption. 
Pax is available for sponsorship only.  He will need recovery time but his expenses will continue to grow due to his injuries.  If you would like to help with Pax's care, please click the Sponsor This Pet button.
