Rescue Me ID: 14-08-13-00146Annie (female)

Dachshund    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Incontinent 

    [Read About Natural Incontinence Care] Annie was once paralyzed about 8 yrs ago and regained the ability to walk but can't always control when she pees & poops. It's been 3 yrs since I rescued Annie from an owner who kept her outside in a goat pen due to her incontinence. She lived with goats 24/7 in the penned in area and their shelter. I couldn't leave her there, she seemed so unhappy. After much talk I convinced the owner that I could provide a better life for her and she allowed me to take her home. Our vet removed her teeth as they were rotted but otherwise she was in good overall health. Annie fit in well with us, we have younger ... (Read More)children she & never once snipped or bit them. She loves people, giving kisses and loves to snuggle. She gets along with dogs and now cats as well, but at first she wanted to eat them! With some muzzle training she quickly figured out chasing and biting cats wasn't acceptable behavior, now they are friends. We have three dogs in total and one of them has 'displaced aggression' issues and has attacked Annie on two separate occasions, the most recent about a month ago. I am heartbroken that I tried to give her a better life and she's ended up wounded and hurt with puncture wounds to her neck. In addition, my husband has become very irritated with the incontinence issue as she simply relieves herself all over the house. I am so very sad and upset but I feel like I have no choice but to try and find her another home. I don't want her in danger or to get hurt again. She's a sweetheart but also a lot of work. My hopes are that her older years will be good ones with a person or family that will accept her as she is; a silly little dog with a great personality but has incontinence issues. If you have the heart, capability and patience to give this girl a good home (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dachshund in Massachusetts
    Dachshund Dogs can make good pets in Massachusetts 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.

    Dachshunds are good travel companions. The short legs of a Dachshund are well suited for digging and getting inside badger burrows. Queen Victoria was fond of Dachshunds.
