2 year old Herbie is now ready for his new home. Herbie was found on the streets as a stray and his foster mommy took him in and got him all better, but she could not keep him. He is super scared at first meeting and takes a good couple weeks to warm up and trust a human. He is house and crate trained but does mark his territory some times. He is other pet friendly and if they go slow and take their time he is child friendly. He is now neutered, shots current, heart worm and tic disease free and micro chipped.
We started out rescuing Dachshunds by chance. We were asked to foster a mother and her 3 pups that were left at a shelter in Stephenville, Texas. It just went from there. We have 7 Doxies of our own, all but one is a rescue. When we moved from Stephenville back to Lubbock, we purchased our home with the rescue in mind. Lots of land and outside the city limits. We love the breed and try to do all we can. We can only house 5-6 right now but are building new kennels and hope to be able to take in up to 20 in the spring of 2012.
