Blue the dachshund puppy was thrown in the garbage by a pet store owner

Heartwarming Story of Blue The Rescue Dog. We met one year old little Blue at Pawlooza. He was thrown away last winter by a pet store owner and retrieved half frozen from the bottom of a filthy dumpster. 20 more minutes he probably would have perished, but luckily he was saved, got vet care and is now a spokesperson for Tiny Paws Rescue. Tiny Paws and Helping Homeless Pets promote responsible pet ownership and suggest you do your research when getting a puppy. ADOPT Don’t SHOP

The story of a neglected, deaf dachshund puppy who gets adopted

This is Frank, a 1.5 year old dachshund that only wanted some love and care to be happy. Now he is so happy that even when sleeping he shows it.

I did this video (watch below) to show how one can change the life a dog with some love and care.

When my wife and I spoke with the previous owner, we were sure that he would die in a few days. He was 5 months old, no vaccines and weighted only 6.6 pounds (3 kg). By the way, the “vet” said that there was no need for vaccines.

When we arrived to see him, we saw that it was even worse: as the owner had no experience in dog caring, he was locked outside in a 50 ft2 (5 m2) ceramic tiles back area, fed only with adult dog food, shedding excessively and unbearable smelly. His only friend was a torn blanket.

We can’t be sure, but we suspect that this mistreatment lead to the worse for him: he got totally deaf. We suspect that a overlooked infection did this to him.

When we got him, he was afraid of shadows, glimmerings, peed everything (including himself), no tail wagging and fearful. By the way, until today he runs for his life whenever he sees a broom…

Now, see him enjoying his dream so much that he even wags his tail and realize that we saved a life, bringing him happiness, is moving.

So please, if you can, spread the adoption idea (and this video). You too can safe a life.

Can a dachshund cure cancer? Lucy Lui did


I have a rescue story with a happy ending.

Eleven years ago, my mom was diagnosed with an incurable disease. She was told at best she had 10 years, worst less than a year to live.  She was depressed. She declared she was getting a dog!

So I began the search with her.  Every time we saw a pet store we stopped in.  She wanted a miniature pincher.

This particular day, I told her to go in the store next door while I checked to see if the pet store had dogs.  I went in and saw the conditions.  It was dark, damp, and the dogs were in the back; stacked in cages one atop the next.  It smelled of pee and poop. I went next door and told her they didn’t have what she was looking for, my heart breaking for the animals.

She insisted on seeing them. Read More →
