    We lost our little girl Dachshund, Gretchen, right after Christmas. She was one of the sweetest little girls. She was also one of the scrappiest little dogs when it came to defending her people and her yard from other animals.

    The wife and I finally decided to start looking for a new little girl. We put in with Texas Dachshund rescue for red piebald little Doxie girl but she was already taken. A few days later we got an email that they had a very sweet black and white piebald girl who was part of a cruelty seizure from a puppy mill in Alvin, TX. Well, we met her today. Her name is Piper. She's still very skittish but starting to warm up to us. She really likes our youngest male Doxie, Bentley. They played in the backyard running around like they were crazy. Here's a crappy cell phone pic of Piper. I'll try to put up some better pictures when I get home.

    Very nice, All of my dogs are rescue dogs ( I have 3).Two mutts and one GSP. I am a dog lover and just can't leave a dump't dog when I run across
    The GSP is an excellent bird dog. I don't know why anyone would abandon him.

    I'm very sorry about your Gretchen.

    Piper is a real cutie! :hearts:

    Thank you for adopting a rescue dog; often, they make the very best pets.

    Cute dog. I found my dog out in the country where somebody had dumped him. He is the best dog.

    She is a pretty puppy. Today while walking on the Waterfront I met a beautiful 9 month old female German Shepard with a wonderful personality. I need a dog.

    Oh how cute! :hearts:

    My dachshund girl is getting on up there (she was 15 in January). I can't imagine having any other breed.
