WJHG in Florida reports on a Fort Walton Beach woman says she’s alive because of her wiener dog. The 10-year-old dachshund, who had been rescued from a shelter himeslf,
returned the favour last weekend.
On a related subject, here’s a report on the difficulties rescuers can face when the dogs they’re dealing with dogs who — like Rudy the Dachshund — have been abused.
And if you’re still able to deal with sad news, here’s the
tale of Noel the Dachshund, who provided comfort to an owner who died far too young. RIP, Jana Seagreaves.
From the archives of Dachshund history comes
this story of John Wayne’s wiener dog, Blackie:
John Wayne's Dachshund Blackie rescued his family from fire while the macho actor was away in Japan
In Yamhill, Oregon,
Missy the 11-year-old Dachshund refused to return home until a neighbor followed her and helped rescue her owner who had collapsed after heart surgery.
Inspired by the story of Annie, the little Oregon wiener dog whose persistent barking led police to her injured owner, the
Oregonian has a story on dog heros and the roots of their urge to rescue.
A wiener dog barks so long and so loud that the Lake Oswego police are called in to check things out,
the Oregonian reports.
The owners of wiener dog, Bernie Mac, were about to close up the crawl space beneath a storage shed on their property, but their dog wouldn’t come out from under.
“Bernie evidently had become friends with a black cat, and he knew the cat had made a home under the shed and she was still under there,”
his owner Linda Burns told the “He was protecting her. If not for Bernie, the bottom of the shed would have been sealed up with the cat underneath.” Daily Herald of Columbia, Tennessee.
Reminds us of that Edgar Allan Poe short story where a black cat is walled up in the cellar. The presence of a Doxie in that house might have changed the course of American literature.
