Hi..Id like to introduce you to Teddy, newly adopted nine month-old dachshund poodle hybrid. My precious Marley went to the Rainbow Bridge January 21 in New Delhi, India after being with me for 12 years. He was 15. I adopted him in China at age three. He left a huge hole in my heart. I just moved back to FL to help care for my aging parents. It is a major adjustment, almost worse than cultural adjustments when I moved to China. I prayed for a dog that needed me. I began the search the very night arrived back in the USA. I looked on all the dachshund rescue sites and pages, Pet finder, and many others. I was looking for a mini dachshund so that he would not be too heavy for my parent's laps, or for them to pick up. I ruled out senior dogs and dogs with major health issues as emotionally, I am just not in a place to handle that.
I found Teddy on rescue me.org. A mix. Hmmmm. I fell in love with the scruffy face in his picture, but just wasn't sure about a dog already in his second home since the brewer's. He was in the first home for five months and the second only three. They could not keep up with his grooming needs, or the level of attention he required. They had three pit bulls as well.
I drove about an hour away to meet him. He was very shy, but before we left he let me pet him. I gasped when I saw him. He is even cuter in person.
As we had my dog nephews visiting me, I didn't bring him home. I looked at 100 more dogs, at least. Teddy had my heart. I couldn't wait to go get him. I made preparations ( like unpack a bazillion suitcases) and drove to get him on March 16.
I am in love. He is just what I need.
