If ever there were an angel on earth, Tami is it. Adorable, cheerful, sweet, affectionate, playful, gentle, loyal, house trained, obedient, and more, Tami is everything you could want in a velvety chocolate fur wrapper. The famous dachshund hunting instinct is strong in this fiesty little girl; her favorite place is outside prowling for critters in the backyard. Second to that, she loves sunbathing or amusing herself with a toy, or wrestling with one of her foster sisters, or burrowing under some covers snuggled up next to anybody. Tami likes to think she is a big intimidating dog when meeting other dogs, but once she relaxes, she quickly becomes best friends with them and will play all day long.   Tami has become accustomed to sleeping in bed with foster mom and sisters, and loves every single person she meets. 

Although she has ended up in the loving arms of a DRoH foster, she has health issues that DRoH cannot repair.  Our finest vets and specialists have found that she has a malformation of her blood vessels that cannot be repaired.  Tami will suffer from low oxygen levels because of pulmonic stenosis.  The condition is irreparable and will shorten her life.  No vet can predict how long she can live with the condition, it could be as short as less than a year or she could fool us like a few of our other pets have done and live for a decade.

Because of her condition, Tami needs to have her activity level kept in moderation.  If she becomes winded, she must rest.  Of course, this happy girl has to be convinced it's for her own good.  She has a very high metabolism, so she she can eat twice the amount to which most dachshunds are limited.  She has been allowed to sleep in her foster parent's bed and sleeps through the night.  She readily engages resident dogs and adores men.  She really doesn't know a stranger.  Tami truly enjoys every minute of her day and although they may be limited, isn't that how we all should live?

About Dachshund Rescue of Houston

About Our Rescue Group...

We have one sole purpose and that is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home Dachshunds in need of a second chance at life and love. We rescue purebred (and a few mixed) dachshunds from pounds and shelters. Some have had a wonderful life but were dumped by their only family at a shelter for no reason at all, while others have been abused, abandoned, neglected and starved of food and human affection their entire life. We believe there is a home somewhere for every dog rescued; some just take a little longer to find.
