Sandy is a wirehaired dachshund t(thought to be purebred) who is approximately 5 years old and was saved from a kill shelter in New Mexico. Nothing else is known about her background. She is extremely affectionate, loves to give kisses, and cuddle. Her favorite place is lying right beside you or getting in your lap to give you kisses. She is also very playful will other dogs of all sizes, and is seemingly fearless! It is unknown how she does with children or cats at this time, but it is thought that she would do very well. She is potty trained and is being kennel trained. She is both a playful and mellow pup, does not seem to be a chewer, and understands basic commands, She is also a very quite dog who almost never barks. Sandy loves her rawhide and is learning to play with toys, probably for the first time. This is one sweet pup who will make someone the perfect companion. I know you will love her as much as we do!
Rescue Group Info...
We are a new organization founded in memory of an eight year old black German Shepherd/Chow named Cayleb. His story is a sad one, but one that inspired our founder to save others like him. He was taken in as a lost dog to a county shelter, and after three long months, he was beginning to reach the end of his given time. When our founder peered into his kennel, he looked intimidating and scared. She couldn't resist adopting him. As soon as he got outside, he started giving kisses, and happily hopped in the back seat of the car without hesitation. Cayleb quickly became best friends with the founder's current dog (a very dog shy poodle), as well as with everyone he met.
Unfortunately, after a month of morning runs and trips to the dog park, Cayleb began to go down hill quickly. When x-rayed, an inoperable mass was found in his liver, and our founder had to make the tough decision to let him go on July 13th, 2012.
A few weeks later, Cayleb's Kindred Senior Dog Rescue was formed, to help all of Cayleb's "kindred spirits" find loving homes to live out the rest of their days in.
We have had dogs as old as 20 years old in our rescue, and as young as 8. We have all breeds, from Dachshunds to Mastiffs, Coonhounds to Wirehaired Pointing Griffons.
We love our seniors, and hope to spread that love with everyone else!
