Sunset Strip was rescued 6/18/09 from the Animal Care and Adoption Center (ACAC) in Texarkana Arkansas. He was picked upped 5/12/09 by the Hooks Animal Control as a stray in Hooks, Texas and was held for 5 days. Hooks, Texas is 10 miles west of Texarkana. Sunset Strip was named Sunset because of the street he was found on. Strip was added by JTR.
Sunset Strip was picked as 'Pet of the Week' 6/18/09 in the local Texarkana paper. His picture and a bio of Sunset Strip was on the second page. Sunset Strip looked wonderful. He also was taken that same week to a local radio station and information about Sunset Strip was shared on the air along with how to adopt him from the (ACAC). Sunset Strip had been bitten on his left leg by another dog in his holding area 6/18/09. It was swollen and he started limping. JTR was contacted 6/18/09 by ACAC to help get Sunset Strip medical attention. It was agreed Sunset Strip would be given vet care at the expense of JTR but Sunset Strip would return to the ACAC because of all the phones calls to adopt him. While Sunset Strip received medical care he was given shots with rabies and heartworm testing. When Sunset Strip occult tested heartworm positive, he was taken into rescue due to the expense of heartworm treatment.
Sunset Strip is a very friendly and loving soul. His tail is always waging and he is always on the look out for where you are. During his time at the ACAC JTR visited Sunset Strip at least once a week. He was always a happy camper there. He was not pulled because of possibly being adopted and his adoption fee paid to ACAC would help another animal. It was hard to leave him there. Sunset Strip enjoys the outdoors. He is no dummy when it comes to 90 plus degree weather. A shade spot is where you will find him looking at you and wagging that tail. Sunset Strip will come with the snap of your finders. JTR will use the handy dog clicker donated by Lynette C of Texarkana, Texas to see if he can be trained. Sunset Strip will make any Dachshund lover a perfect friend. His coat and color shine even after 8 years of living. Sunset Strip is crate, potty and leash trained.
