Animal Success Stories

"My little dog---a heartbeat at my feet."  Edith Wharton

Our lives will forever be enriched because of the dachsies that touched our hearts in rescue, but we know the real healing does not begin until they leave our care.  We encourage, we celebrate, we do everything we can to give them the skills they need to put their best paw forward as they wait for their forever families to find them . . . and then the time comes to say goodbye.

Often we shed tears.  We remember when they came in, how far they’ve come, the hiccups along the way – we laugh, we cry – and then we always say a little prayer as we send them on their way.  We hope they find the confidence to keep that best paw forward, because we know, when they do, they will truly flourish.  It is then, they will heal; it is then, they will find peace.

If you have adopted one of our adorable dachsies, and would like to contribute a Success Story, please e-mail, and we will add it to the website.  Be sure to send us a current picture.  We do love pictures!!!

Hi!  In July of 2010, I drove to Sioux Falls to visit with the lovely folks of DDR and met Frannie, a beautiful mini Doxie.  My daughters and I brought her home to Iowa and she quickly fit in with the rest of our family. 

You will be happy to know she is still quite the princess!  She enjoys walks with her best friends Samantha and Abby and always gets a treat when she comes home. 

We love getting Doxie kisses every morning and Frannie even has her own wardrobe.  And of course there's lots of belly rubs! 

We love her just as much as the day we met her at the pet fair.  I commend all those who tirelessly work to protect these little creatures. 

Keep up the wonderful work!!  ~   Angela Hogge
