Piper was turned into the Montgomery County Animal Shelter as a stray, unable to use her back legs. A very generous clinic offered to foster her through rehab to help her regain strength and mobility.  They have her using the underwater treadmill, laser therapy, exercises, etc. They are continuing to provide a safe place for her to stay and get well again, until an adoptable family can be found.

While DROH is not facilitating the adoption of this sweet girl, we are using our resources to network her. If you are interested in learning about this pup, please email so we can connect you with the clinic fostering her, and you can discuss their adoption process. 

Here is a description of Piper from the clinic:

"When we first got her she was very shy and unsure of her surroundings.  She is slowly coming out of her shell. The past couple days she has been playing with some toys and today she let out a playful bark. She is still a little scared when she is outside, but will now walk around some. Her rehab is coming along, and she is getting around pretty good. She will probably never be 100%. She still shakes some when she is being held. She has done very well in the kennel."

Update from Clinic:

"We are still doing rehab and she is doing great.   She has come out of her shell and has a great personality.  She loves to snuggle and rolls over for her belly to be rubbed."

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.
