    Available for adoption in Manchster, CT Peewee has been waiting for his perfect forever home since June 19, 2013!! Peewee needs to go to a calm home that is experienced with Dachshunds- Peewee is the epitome of the breed: tenacious, smart, and stubborn- he needs someone who will be all that right back at him. Please read his information in full before inquiring, but if you may be interested in adopting, please email upsndownsrescue@gmail.com or submit an application online at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1ISDGDHUVd94aX7q0c0E59NU3ttRjcb9YHc0x4KxRgFw/viewform Peewee has come a long way since the day I picked him up from the Manhattan ... (Read More)shelter, June 19, 2013. He had been medically neglected and was a very sick boy who spent his first week 'with me' at the Pieper Memorial Veterinary Center ER vet. He is now a fully medically cared for boy, and happy. Here is Peewee's original thread: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=624048330941383&set=a.626806993998850.1073741961.152876678058553&type=3&theater On December 17, 2013 Peewee became paralyzed, as many Dachshunds do at one point or another. After a couple sessions of cold laser therapy ($35/ session) and crate rest he is starting to walk again but was still in sporadic pain and not getting full coordination back. On January 28, 2014 Peewee had surgery to clean up disk material between his T11, T12, T13, L1 and L2 disks. Prior to surgery he also had to have an echocardiogram done due to his heart murmur going from 1 to a 4/5 (highest grade is 6) in just 1 month and is now on enalipril (a low cost heart/blood pressure maintenance pill), and his murmur is back very low; this increase may have been due to the stress of moving around from foster to foster, in conjunction with the meds he was on for his back prior to surgery. Peewee did physical therapy after surgery and did well. He has control over his bodily functions and also uses a peepad religiously if one is down indoors, and in the same spot each time. He is also dog door and crate trained. Peewee has recovered from his paralysis, but continues to have a 'drunken sailor' walk. He enjoys running in the yard, but does not like going on walks. On September 1, 2015 Peewee had a seizure. A few days later he had an MRI and there was nothing significant to show why the seizure had occurred, but he is on preventative meds for now, and after a good second follow up appointment is on a lower dose. See full story for this episode at www.GoFundMe.com/Save-Peewee Peewee requires enalipril daily for his heart, an inexpensive medication, and is also currently on an anti-seizure med as a precaution- which we hope to wean him off over the next few months. Peewee is housebroken and pee pad trained, and good with calm, confident and respectful cats and dogs. Due to his anxiety around high energy and unpredictable energy he should not be around small children, and requires an adult only home. He weighs between 12.5 and 13lbs at his ideal weight. Peewee was picked up from the Manhattan ACC on Wednesday June 19, 2013. He was a mess with a badly infected mouth his whole chin/neck area is swollen with infection and saliva and blood back up, then in addition he had 2+ protein in his urine and blood so it was assumed to be s bladder or kidney stone(s) but the ultra sound was clear. All that in itself was a lot of infection to handle, but in addition to all that he had severe pneumonia as well. H e had his initial vet check up and blood drawn on June 20th and he is anemic and his white blood cell count was high, likely just due to fighting off all the infection in his body. Then on Friday afternoon (June 21, 2013) Peewee's left anal gland burst, his prostate was found to be very enlarged (both issues due to him being unneutered), he had a 104 degree temperature, his left lung sounds 'harsh' which the chest X-rays confirmed was pneumonia. He was then on IV for fluids and antibiotics, and a feeding tube as he had not wanted to eat since he has been out of the shelter. Peewee ended up staying at the emergency vet from Friday June 21st- Thursday June 27th, the total of which was $942.58 (lower than the initial big estimate- thanks Pieper Olson!!!) Since his initial recovery Peewee has been neutered, had two dental cleanings (two premolars fell out between when I got him and his dental on July 12th, and then he had one molar extracted the second time), had x-rays and an ultra sound to try to determine why his urinalysis' were coming back off, additional re-checks, and cold laser therapy in December 2013 after he became paralyzed. This boy is a survivor, but he wouldn't have been able to even make it out of the shelter alive, or even survive the to see July 2013, had he not had the support people donating and sharing for him.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dachshund in Connecticut
    Dachshund Dogs can make good pets in Connecticut if they match your IifestyIe. The Dachshund is a long, short-legged dog with a temperament similar to that of a terrier. Dachshunds are cheeky, playful, mischievous, and resistant to training or discipline. Dachshunds do well with older children. Dachshunds are well suited to apartment life but need exercise, and it is important that they not be overfed as this breed is prone to weight gain.

lnteresting Dachshund Trivia Low-Cost Connecticut Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Dachshunds are good travel companions. Dachshunds are named for Dachs, the German term for Badger, which these dogs were bred to hunt. The short legs of a Dachshund are well suited for digging and getting inside badger burrows. Queen Victoria was fond of Dachshunds.
