Dolly and Molly came to us on the 4th of July!
Dolly, age 6, beautiful & sweet red short-haired dachshund, is a former breeder dog, and was lovingly fostered by Max - also known as Dolly's hero and papa , his wife Lisa - aka "not the papa", their 3 dogs and extended family of aunts & uncles in the country and grandma "doxie whisperer", not to mention a facebook page of encouragers.
Molly, a long-haired red beauty (age 7 but moves like a 2-yr-old) is a former Navy dog. Ha - that will change - we are teaching her the Army way! Molly had many suitors when her photo was posted on DRNA but we were the fortunate ones - we suspect because Dolly and Molly got along so famously when Linda drove them for a visit and they rode "shotgun".
Dolly, a bit shy, needed a dog sibling to continue teaching her how to be a dog (instead of a breeding money maker...errrr) and Molly needed a dog buddy because she is so demonstrative and happy happy in-your-face HAPPY all the time.
Thank you to Linda, to Lisa & Max, and all those behind the scenes who took care of these sweet dogs before they became our beloved dachshund daughters. Rescue - the only way to go !
