Meet Luigi

My momma did a rescue transport fur this handsome boy on Thursday.  He came already named......as Luigi!!  This name made my momma giggle, cuz it don't sound like your normal doxie German type name!

A very nice vet, all the way out in Richmond Tx convinced his owners to give him up to dachshund rescue....because the vet had to treat him fur TWO broken legs at different times since January (we suspect abuse, butt obviously those people did not deserve to have a nice dog like Luigi)

Good news is that when my momma picked him up, they took the second cast off....and he is motoring around very good!  He is ready fur his foster family.....and then to find his new furever home.  We hope he finds it soon....

PeeS...
Some of you may remember a previous transportee, that my momma named TWIX....well, her was adopted!!!!!  But now her name is Heidi. Congrats to Twix/Heidi!!!!  (Pawsonally, I liked da name TWIX better....)

How horrible for Luigi to have had two broken legs. We are grateful to his vet for getting him to a safe place. Paws crossed he finds a "real" home soon, one where he will be loved and not injured.

I'm so sad to think that anyone would abuse Luigi like that. I'll never understand why people think it's ok to abuse their pets. (Or their kids, for that matter!)

Luigi is a very handsome pup. I hope he'll be adopted very soon into a loving home.

I learned in history class this semester that doxies at one time were called Freedom Pups.

Congrats to Twix/Heidi.
