Another Rescue….

Gotcha!!  It isn’t us this time, but it does run in my family’s blood.  My brother just rescued a full blooded Dachshund, Brody, to add to his collection bringing his dog total to three.

This little guy was taken from his home when his owners decide they wanted to harm him and didn’t want to feed him or care for him properly anymore.

Can you imagine?

The little guy now has a safe place to lay his head, adequate food, buddies (2 Bassets), and people around him to give him the attention and love he deserves.  He has already had him neutered and vaccinated.  He was emaciated when he got him, but is starting to fill out from a good feeding schedule.

He is so sweet and always wants to be where you are…he follows you faithfully.  If you are bound and determined to get a full blooded breed look for a recue site for that specific breed.  Everytime you buy a dog from a breeder or a pet store…it is one less shelter dog who finds a home.  These dogs (or cats) deserve a safe home and someone to love them!

Have a great day!

    Lauren, we miss you and John too! It is so good to hear from you. Hope you are enjoying city life. Things have been busy here, but we are winding down now. As requested I’m working on posting some pictures of the little cuties. Somehow we even managed to put in a small garden so far. Keep in touch!

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
