We are fairly certain that this 13 pound little lady did not live in the most ideal home and did not receive the best care over the years. Princess was found wandering along a road and taken to an animal shelter. Her owner was contacted, but must have had a change of mind and decided to leave Princess in the shelter. Three long months later Princess hit the "lottery" when Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue stepped in getting her out of the shelter and placed her in a loving foster home. This brave dachshund's problems were not over. She had a mammary mass the size of a baseball. Mass removed, pathology showed it was benign. Princess is close to completely deaf. We took her to a vet opthalmologist for what seemed to be low to no vision in one eye and a cataract in the other eye. The diagnosis was she has glaucoma in one eye and she is blind in that eye. The good news is that she had such an amazing response to the medication that removing the eye is off the table.
Princess's ideal home will have no young children, no aggressive pets, and an adopter that is retired. The adopter will have patience and an understanding of the safety concerns for a dog with very low hearing as well as having low vision. Princess is available for adoption in Colorado only. Applicants must reside within 3 driving hours of Boulder, CO. To meet this very pretty little dachshund we require that an adoption application be filled out. This can be done online at www.c2cdr.org. For questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The adoption fee for Princess is $150.00 the warm feeling in your heart for helping her is immeasurable.
