The Kerrvile Daily Times in Texas Hill Country reports on five wiener dogs whose owners left them behind before the hurricane hit:
They were left at home in Bridge City when their owners evacuated from Ike’s rage.
The storm’s surge filled the house and yard with about 5 feet of water.
“The dogs were outside and were washed over the 4-foot fence,” said Christine McEntyre, who has taken in the dogs at her facility, Diamond Dachshund Rescue. “They apparently swam a distance together, and got onto something to get out of the water.”
The five dogs — three females and two males — gently were rounded up by an animal search and rescue team and were brought to the safety of the Beaumont Humane Society.
