Hi, My name is SpeedWay, but they call me Speedo for short. I am a male dapple piebald dachshund. I will be 3 yrs old on July 27. When I was a baby, the puppy mill I was born at sold me to another puppy mill to be used as a stud dog. I was thrown into a quansit building to live my life in a small wire cage. My puppy mill owner didn't know I was deaf although they owned me for almost 3 years. My rescuer bought me off of a dog auction, and she knew I was deaf after only being at her house for 1 day. The puppy millers didn't care that I may be passing this on to all the puppies that I sired, although their website claims them to be "dachshund experts" .
Because of the fact that I can't hear I really need to have a family that has a fenced in yard, and because I was caged in such a small area I have this minor quirk of running in alot of circles, BUT my rescuer has a big fenced yard and it has been kind of weird and fun learning how to walk and run in a straight line ! Sometimes I accidently get myself into a corner and start circling...but then I find my way back into going straight again. It has been really fun learning how to walk on grass and playing with toys and I really get along good with all the other doggies here. I love everyone I meet, kids too. I really am a great little dog, and I am pretty little, only about 7 lbs., tops, so I won't take up much space and will be a good friend if someone is willing to share their home with me
and able to deal with my silly ways.
I sleep very good in a crate, and since I am so busy running in my big yard, that when I go to sleep I am very tired and sleep very hard. You can make all the noise in the house you want to...it doesn't bother my sleeping one bit ! Kinda like you turning off your hearing aide ! My shots are all up to date now, I am now neutered, I had my teeth cleaned and 6 bad teeth removed, and I am heartworm negative, and I even got groomed by this very nice girl...even a manicure and my ears cleaned out...( what's up with that, I can't hear anyway ! ) So I'm good to go, and am now ready to interview my future forever family. I am excited about this phase of my new life. Speedo

.My promise to you....From here on out...you will have a name....not just a number. Julie

Hi, my name is Hope. I am a 5 yr. old female dachshund and I have lived my life in a puppy mill in Kansas. I was used for continual breeding until my last litter of puppies, I had to have a c-section, so they didn't want me any more. My rescuer bought me off of a dog auction. I was not in very good shape and my rescuer took me to the vet. I had a big lump on my back and my teeth were black from front to back. I had to have 13 teeth pulled, but the ones I have left are really nice and white now, and I am back to eating hard dog kibble. When the vet spayed me she said whoever did my c-section really butchered me, and it looked like it had been a "at home" job.
My uterus had adhered to my bladder so my surgery took a little longer than usual, but now I am in good shape and feel great. The antibiotics took away the big lump on my back too, so figured it was a big pocket of infection. I was pretty much in shock when I came to my rescuers house. Wow, it was like doggie Disneyland. I never dreamed there were such things as a big yard to run in. All I had before was a wire cage. My feet were really sore. And toys to play with! Never dreamed there was such a thing. And I get to sleep on a doggie bed with a big fluffy blanket. You can't imagine what I used to have to sleep on. I have discovered that I really like to be touched and I love to have my tummy rubbed. I roll right over for that treatment !

3 year old male poodle available to approved forever home. He can’t understand why his family dumped him out in the country all alone and in very cold Iowa weather. But even though he has endured these hardships...he is very happy & loving. Veno is fully vetted and ready to take on the next best chapter of his life.
