Pickles's Story...
Pickles, cute name for a very cute dog. He has had a long road of injury, illness and slow recovery. He was hit by a car and fractured his back and pelvis. The finder gave him immediate care and then contacted us. We took him in and he continued to heal from those injuries. Pickles did continue to have urinary incontinence. We took him to Central Texas Veterinary Specialty Hospital. He had 7 stones in his urethra and had surgery to remove these stones and tighten the urethra as much as possible. The surgeon said sadly, Pickles probably had these stones for quite some time (causing him to dribble urine constantly) and once the urethra has been stretched so much for so long there is very little that can be done. Since the surgery (11-3-14) his urinary problem has slightly improved. He is on one last medication to try and get his urinary sphincter to tighten. We will know if this is working in a few weeks. His mobility is great, just a little stagger, he can walk, run and go up stairs.
We and Pickles are very blessed that he is in an awesome foster home. She says Pickles is a wonderful dog, fun loving, playful, gets along great with her dogs and the urinary problem is a minor problem. We are using a belly band that we ordered for him.
We are looking for a home for Pickles and a special owner that can look past his medical problem for the great dog that he is. He deserves to live out his life in a happy home with someone who loves him.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pickles, a Wimberley Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund for sale in Wimberley, or seeking a Dachshund dog from a breeder in Wimberley.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Wimberley already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Wimberley breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dachshund breeders who help with Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Wimberley paves the way for another one to be saved.
