Linda Mayberry of Dachshund Rescue of North America writes about the difficulties of rehoming an elderly gentleman wiener dog:
Anytime Bodo was at an event, folks were surprised to find out his age. And the response to hearing Bodo was fifteen: He’s old! He doesn’t look 15! Plus he weighs twenty-two pounds. Although he would be considered small compared to a Labrador, he is big when he is with most other dachshunds. People love to fuss over the young, really cute, and easy to scoop up with one hand dachshunds. And while the rambunctious young ones were bouncing around, there he was calmly sitting and looking around. Then he would get a pat or two on the head with parting words such as I hope you find a home soon.
