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 dakotadachshund@hotmail.com, and we will add it to the website.  Be sure to send us a current picture.  We do love pictures!!!

No Problem! We were just thinking about sending you a note. Thanks for the pictures of Winston :) Winston is doing very well. Since we have brought him home he has just slid right into the routine of the day. He is responding to the one on one training fairly well and has only had 2 potty accidents in the house... His really enjoys playing with everyone and has as much energy as our three year old... Emma and Winston are best buds and enjoy playing around together and Emma really enjoys going along on the walks with Winston. I have included some pictures the first one is of Winston playing with Dustin and his favorite toy that has already seen better days... and the second one is after a nice game of tug of war with the pig Winston enjoys laying by the couch chewing on his raw hide bone.. We really really enjoy having Winston as our newest family memember.. The Willis Family Stephanie
