Welcome Gus to the Coleman Clan!
Gus is a 14-year-old, 10 pound piebald, Dachshund whose owner unfortunately had dementia and had to go live in a memory care home. The sadder news is that the gentlemen had 9 children and NOT ONE of them would take Gus in. Gus was living in an empty house for 2 months and someone would stop by a few times a week to leave food.
A friend of the gentlemen heard about this travesty and took Gus in. She got him neutered and, since he had some bad teeth and gums, got his teeth cleaned, and she brought him up to date with his vaccines. Amazingly, he is heart worm negative! DREAM Dachshund Rescue agreed to take him in. Gus was about an hour away from me so I said I would foster. I'm now a "foster fail". 🐾
I have had him just over a month. He is learning the routine at my house, learning his place in my pack. He's in good health for a 14-year-old, and even though he has heart murmur, his blood work is good. He's a bit deaf and blind, but all to be expected at his age.
I will be your forever home now so no worries, Gus.
