Animal Success Stories

"My little dog---a heartbeat at my feet."  Edith Wharton

Our lives will forever be enriched because of the dachsies that touched our hearts in rescue, but we know the real healing does not begin until they leave our care.  We encourage, we celebrate, we do everything we can to give them the skills they need to put their best paw forward as they wait for their forever families to find them . . . and then the time comes to say goodbye.

Often we shed tears.  We remember when they came in, how far they’ve come, the hiccups along the way – we laugh, we cry – and then we always say a little prayer as we send them on their way.  We hope they find the confidence to keep that best paw forward, because we know, when they do, they will truly flourish.  It is then, they will heal; it is then, they will find peace.

If you have adopted one of our adorable dachsies, and would like to contribute a Success Story, please e-mail, and we will add it to the website.  Be sure to send us a current picture.  We do love pictures!!!

I forgot to mention when I sent this photo the first time, that the girls were laughing cuz Chase stuck his nose in the snow which stuck to him! They thought that was pretty funny. He still has the stuffed dog toy and loves it, as well as the squeaky squishy odd shaped thing that he rolls with his's yellow and pink.


Hi, My name is Damien aka " Mr D." I was adopted on Sept 19,2009. My forever home is in Lakeland MN with my 3 brothers and my sister Sassy, all doxies. I have a big fenced yard to run in and chase all the squirrels and rabbits. I love sleeping in the big bed with mom and dad, sure beats a wire cage. Mom says I am adjusting really well. I am not too sure about the snow we got recently…kinda cold on the paws..but my brother Rudy says it can be lots of fun. My family and I pray that all my brothers and sisters at all the foster homes find their forever home soon. A special kiss and wish to Rambo my litter brother. Hope you find your forever home soon. Damien and my forever family in Minnesota
