Dear My Forever Family,

My name is Angela and I was rescued from a hoarding situation.  I was one of many dogs - tens of dogs. 

I lived in filth.  I can't say that with my words, but my family could tell by my skin and the caked on dirt and debris between my toes, in my ears, and on my legs. 

I had to fight for food.  I can't say that with my words, but my family can tell because I still can't eat my dinner with the other dogs.  I will only take one piece of food and run off, so my foster siblings don't get all of my food.  My parents have learned to feed me in my cage with my door shut.  Now only I eat my food! 

I was kicked and abused.  I can't say that with my words, but my family can tell because I am very cautious.  I only walk behind them (I can't get kicked that way).  I don't come when they want me to.  I try to get close, but I just can't quite yet.  If they sit on their couch then I come immediately and curl up in a ball next to them.  I have learned to go to my mom's side of the bed to get picked up.  I then get to lay on her stomach while she reads or curl up in a blanket!

I wasn't house trained.  I can't say that with my words, but my family can tell.  I have really been trying though and have learned to go potty outside after I eat.  I have also learned to use a pee pad.  My mom has been telling her friends that I have really improved in the past two weeks - I am having less accidents. 

I have been with my foster family since the middle of March.  I am continually improving and every once in awhile I can tell my parents are super happy with something new I have done.  This morning I jumped up on the couch and went to my dad to get petted.  My dad was really excited.  I love playing with my foster dog sister.  My foster dog brother is 4 years old and the "mature one".  I am trying to follow his lead.

The love I will have for you will be forever.  Please consider me for your family, because I just want to share in a family's love forever.

Angela

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.
