Max 12380 is a 5 year old, neutered, 13 lb, black and tan, smooth coated miniature dachshund. He doesn't seem to be a barker. Max came to DRNA from a rural shelter. He had been surrendered by his owner because he had an episode of IVDD and was paralyzed in his lower body. DRNA stepped up to help him using cold laser treatments, medications, and rest. He is now walking with a “back walk” and wagging his tail. Max must be adopted within 20 miles of Baltimore MD. We don't know how Max feels about cats. No young children since Max needs gentle handling. There is no guarantee that Max will not experience a recurrence of IVDD which is often a chronic condition in dachshunds. Max needs a securely fenced yard for exercise and a friendly dachshund buddy in his home. Max will not tolerate crating. He cannot go up or down stairs and he must not be allowed to jump off furniture. Stairs must be securely gated. No swimming pools or ponds, please.
