All in the Family


Dachshund / Labrador Retriever

Zoey and I have a very strong bond. I have been wanting a dog for some time now. We have an 18 month daughter and felt she too was ready. I looked and looked for the right dog for a while. I one day run across Zoey. Her mix breed really had me interested. Dachshund/ lab mix. I was excited and found my match. The next day when I went to get her, my heart melted. In that back yard were a bunch of dogs and puppies running around. I see Zoey on the ground in a small hole. The owner told me that she all the sudden got sick. This dog was ALL and I mean ALL BONE. I had to take her. That day I took her to the vet. Found out she had parvovirus. A deadly puppy disease. The vet told me she was so dehydrated that she may not make it through the night. She had liquids injected in to her, antibiotics given to me and we went home. The next week involved me sleeping on the floor next to her giving her baby food and Gatorade every hour with a syringe. She is doing GREAT now. Very playful and full of energy.. She loves to run, play tug of war and fetch. Zoey is a very big snuggler, who also loves to give puppy kisses. My 18 month and Zoey would chase one another none stop all day. She is a whole new dog. I am so happy that I got her and saved her. She is a wonderful addition to our family.

Well thank you very much. I really appreciate that. I fell in love with her the moment I saw her and I could not imagine not fighting for her. She is a great little dog.
