I have a rescue story with a happy ending. Eleven years ago, my mom was diagnosed with an incurable disease. She was told at best she had 10 years, worst less than a year to live. She was depressed. She declared she was getting a dog! So I began the search with her. Every time we saw a pet store we stopped in. She wanted a miniature pincher. This particular day, I told her to go in the store next door while I checked to see if the pet store had dogs. I went in and saw the conditions. It was dark, damp, and the dogs were in the back; stacked in cages one atop the next. It smelled of pee and poop. I went next door and told her they didn't have what she was looking for, my heart breaking for the animals. She insisted on seeing them. So reluctantly, I followed her knowing she would cry if she saw what I did. When she saw her, she asked to hold her. We both had her named immediately, Lucy. Lucy had papers! A miniature dachshund, with papers, was dumped in this place. We paid for her and took her straight to the vet. Heart worms, ear mites and malnutrition to the point they told us she wouldn't live 1 month! THEY SHUT DOWN THE STORE! We treated her illnesses and put her on a special diet. Last month, she turned 11 Years Old! And my mom. .. She got a clean bill of health from the same doctor. He told her he didn't know if she was a woman of faith, but medicine couldn't explain her recovery! Lucy lives with me now. She got depressed when I moved and took her brother (my mini dachshund), but perked up when she came to see him. So we made it permanent. 8 months old and told she'd die in a month. Now 11 years old and the worst thing she has is a fear of crates! Lindsay Proud Mom of Lucy Lui Austin, TX

We have grown up with dogs all of our lives. They greatly improve our lives and add so much happiness and love to our families.
Our families have had many different breeds including mixed breeds and mutts. Some of the dogs we've had are pugs, poodles, chihuahuas, beagles, german shepherds, bichons, soft coated wheaten terriers, pit bull / rottweiler mix, tibetan terrier, norwegian elkhounds and currently we have 3 long-haired dachshunds.
Our first dachshund, Lola joined our family in August of 2010 and we immediately fell in love with the breed. We rescued our second dachshund Skittles in July of 2011 and in 2014 we rescued Marley. We have an online store for everything about dachshunds at ILoveDachshundsShop.com
We wanted to create a community of friends who are just as crazy about dogs as we are so we started our Facebook page I Love Dachshunds in early 2011 and it has grown into an amazing community of over 558,000. In 2014 we started our Love The Breed page to expand on our love of all other dogs breeds.
Our mission is to educate people about the dogs and to bring awareness of the large number of dogs in need of rescue all over the world.
It is very expensive for rescues to care for these precious animals so we want to help them and you can help too!
For every purchase you make from our shop a percentage will be donated to a dog rescue.
Together we can make the world a better place for animals!
Holly & Martin, Lola, Skittles and Marley
