I have a colorful personality to share with you and the world.

Update: Auggie was adopted on October 15th!

We are so proud of little Auggie, a Dachshund puppy triumphantly debuting for adoption today.

He overcame the 'puppy strangles' condition (sometimes called juvenile cellulitis) thanks to loving foster care and extensive medical care we had provided for him.

We rescued Auggie and his mother and sister back in July from a previous owner who no longer wanted to care for them.  Mom and sister have since been adopted, but Auggie needed additional time due to his medical needs.

He is a Dachshund, neutered, about 5 months of age.  He enjoys playing with other dogs and he loves to snuggle with gentle people.  A quieter home is ideal for him due to his sensitive nature.

Please be sure to carefully puppy-proof your home and yard for his safety and protection.  Dachshund knowledge and/or experience is preferred for his adoption.
