The Eureka Reporter in northern California has a truly bizarre Dachshund rescue story. (Scroll down past the kittens)
“We call that one Sausage,” Jolynne Jarman said as a heavy-set black dachshund ran around the yard.
Jarman, an employee of Miranda’s Rescue in Fortuna, has been helping care for Sausage the dachshund and 16 others that Shannon Miranda rescued from a home in Fortuna on Thursday.
The dogs were part of a rescue of dachshunds that belonged to Chad Larsen — who was recently arrested on suspicion of conspiracy and solicitation to commit murder.
Miranda said he is holding on to a few of the dogs for when Larsen gets out of jail, but the rest need to find homes.
“I don’t think they were pet and played with,” he said as they ran up to him for some pats of affection.
Why on earth is the rescuer holding on to even one dog for Larsen?
