My husband turned the big 5-0 this month. He’s a low maintenance guy who enjoys the simple things; woodworking, canoeing, avocados, and dogs to name a few. All he he wanted for his birthday was to add 10 pounds permanently, in other words, adopt our little foster dog. Papi was rescued by Central Texas Dachshund Rescue last year after he was dumped at the night drop box of Town Lake Animal Center. We think he is a chiweenie. We think he might only be a quarter chiweenie though, perhaps his dad was a full blooded dachshund and his mom was half dachshund and half chihuahua.
We have fostered over a dozen dogs in the last the last couple years, and we fostered Papi the longest of all. I guess because he doesn’t quite look like a purebred dachshund (legs a little too long and funny ears) no one was interested in adopting him, until now.
Allan got his birthday wish, and he said it was the best birthday present of his life. Here’s a little slide show of Allan and Papi from last December, just a few weeks after we started fostering him. Enjoy!
Fostering is very rewarding and easy! You provide food, shelter and lots of love and the rescue group pays for any medical bills. Central Texas Dachshund Rescue has to frequently turn down dachshunds in need because we don’t have enough available fosters. Please consider fostering or donating your time or money today!
