The Daily Doxie has another huge Dachshund rescue to report, this one in Fort Dodge, Iowa where a breeder agreed to relinquish 15 of the 45 puppies he had living “free range” on his property, said executive director Laurie Hagey of the Almost Home Humane Society of North Central Iowa.
The 12 females and three male puppies are almost all younger than a year old, and in “surprisingly good shape,” she told the local Messenger newspaper.
“One little female is deaf,” she said. “We think one may be blind in one eye, and one has an injured leg. A couple of them have tooth abscesses. But, all in all, they seem pretty healthy. … All would make wonderful family companions – with a lot of love, patience and consistent training.”
