Meet tiny Deke! This little red dachshund gentleman is eight years young and is used to being spoiled and babied! He lived his life being adored by his mom who became too ill to care for him.

Although in the right light it looks like he has cataracts, he actually has nuclear sclerosis which happens in all in older animals to some degree. It's not painful and doesn't affect his sight, it just makes his eyes look cloudy in certain light.

He lives for laps and snuggles and being carried around like a little king! This little old man needs a dedicated family to care for him during his twilight years!

Do you have a fence and live within 30-40 miles of Hartford City? Would you prefer to foster Deke until he finds his adoptive family? He would love that!! Just private message us your email address and we'll send you a foster app that you can complete and email back! If you have questions about what fostering means for you, please private message us here and we'll be happy to answer! Fosters are so awesome in so many ways!!

When adopted, sweet minuscule Deke will be neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, tested for heartworm, and current on flea and heartworm preventative. All he needs is a safe and happy home with a loving family to care for him!
