How We Met?
Adopted from Dakota Dachshund Rescue.
Was dumped over the fence of a "rotty" volunteer in Kansas along with 2 other used up senior puppymill breeders. One of the rotty's got loose and killed one of them. DDR was contacted and relay transportation was worked out.
Gus and the other dachsie arrived at DDR in late June,2007. But because he was a senior and no one wants a senior or "old dog" he waited for his forever home until we adopted him in late April, 2008.
We had sent one of our 3 senior Dachsies to the Bridge April 17, 2008. God knew that it was our precious Willie's time to begin his journey to the Bridge and HE also knew that this would give Gus his forever home.
Two wonderful people were I work, knew of my heavy involvement in rescue, committment to senior dogs,knew we had lost our precious Willie (14 1/2 years) and also knew we were going to adopt Gus as soon as the pain of Willie's loss eased. These 2 people appeared at my desk 4/29/08 and handed me a card. Inside there were 2 checks that totalled the amount of Gus's adoption fee dedicated in Memory to Willie. There are still some wonderful people in this world.
The adoption app was completed and delivered along with the 2 checks that evening. Gus came home with us as a temporary foster until the adoption application was processed.
He hasn't left my side since!
