Roscoe, his sister, Penny, and mom, Dorothy, recently lost their human mom. His human mom apparently had been trying to re-home her many dachshunds in anticipation of her death but we are not totally sure what the whole situation was. But when she passed away there was no one to care for these poor dears and their living conditions were sordid. The night DRNA found out about their plight they had been pulled from a house where they had no food, no water and no warmth (the fire had gone out) and were literally in a box outside with some blankets. Apparently one of the existing dogs had not been friendly to them. After talking to us about the freezing temperatures a nice friend hatched a plan to keep them in her bathroom and even gave them baths and put sweaters on them. They were very grateful! The next morning DRNA picked them up. We took all three to the vet where we discovered that everyone needed to be spayed/neutered but that they were great dogs who loved attention and snuggles! Roscoe is currently in foster care with his sister Penny where he loves snuggling and following his foster mom and dad around the house. He loves lyingsuper close to his foster mom on the couch or in the big bed. Roscoe is great with other dogs and puppies. It looks like at some point his right hind leg might have been broken and not set correctly (if at all!) as he is a little bowlegged and he does not like to lie on that side. His foster mom carries him up and down the stairs because of it and would recommend his forever parents do the same. Roscoe and Penny are clearly bonded and want to be adopted together. It would be wonderful if all three could all go together but we know three dogs are a WHOPPING adoption project! Roscoe and Penny are great dogs and deserve a chance at happiness! Woof and Roscoe loves you already! PS This is Roscoe speaking...Foster Mom says she learns more about my personality every day! As soon as I am neutered in a few days (whatever that means I am not sure I like the sound of it) I will be good to go to my forever home hopefully with you!!! And PPS that is me with the fly away ears just in case you wondered!
