We are working hard on figuring out how else we can help this sweet boy. Can you help us with some of Dax's vet bills? You can sponsor Dax once or monthly or whenever you have a little extra change or a dollar or two in your wallet :)

Howdy! My name is Dax. I came to Dakota Dachshund Rescue because my mom couldn't take care of me anymore. I was hit by a car many years ago, my pelvis was crushed. I healed and was able to walk again because my mom took such good care of me. I can be a little sensitive when picked up, I have learned to trust my foster mom but it took a week for me to trust her not to hurt me. Dr Paul did xrays and assessed my pelvis, I may need arthritis meds or pain meds. I do fine with all the other dogs in my foster home. 
I love blankets....blankets on the couch, blankets in the bed, blankets in my kennel!

Can you be my furever home? I am 10 years old, I weigh 13.6 lbs, my adoption fee is $250 plus sales tax $11.25 =$261.25
