Senior Weiner, Foster Failure

Let me introduce Joey, the senior prairie dog. Joey came to us straight from Harris County Animal Control death row. He was an unclaimed stray,  pulled at the last minute by *Dachshund Rescue of Houston . Joey was a stinky, skinny, heartworm positive, older, unneutered, dental mess of a dog. He was not cute, not cuddley, not much going for him - fortunately for him DROH is in the business of looking  past all the mess to rehabilitate and rehome dachshunds. They take the easy, as well as the hard, and even the impossible cases and do wonderful things. Joey was not supposed to stay with us permanently. He was a foster. He was supposed to move on to a new forever home. But he stayed. We call that "foster failure".

Joey makes himself comfortable most anywhere.

*DROH is a wonderful organization that I had the priveledge of fostering with for several years when we lived in Houston, TX.
