Button was rescued from a shelter when he was around 4 years of age. He was a beautiful red dapple standard dachshund, just as gentle as could be.
He came into rescue heart worm positive, with several scars on his body, and a couple ribs that had likely been broken and healed on their own causing
him to have an indention on one side. He gained another scar on his face when he and 3 other dogs cornered a water moccasin behind a bag of potting
soil and they all got bitten! After an expensive night at the ER vet, thankfully everyone was fine the next day but Button bore the brunt of the
first most venomous bite. Like most dachshunds, he loved to squirrel hunt, run the fenceline barking at our neighbor’s dogs and would 10/10 go after a
Button spent his golden years walking around the pasture just sniffing away, tail wagging the whole time it was just so sweet to see him living his best
life. After a 2 year long battle with Congestive Heart Failure, the medicine was no longer effective and we made the difficult decision to let him run
free. I bundled him up in his comfy dog bed, covered with a blanket for the very short drive to our vet. Once in the room, he stretched out laying his head
on Michael’s lap to let him know it was definitely time. We had him almost 11 years, so we have a lot of wonderful memories and funny Button stories to tell.
He will be truly missed!
