Melody aka “Mello” (former DREAM puppy Pebbles) is truly a blessing to our home. We are dachshund lovers and were in the hunt for a long haired puppy to add to our family. We started looking on-line for puppies with breeders and eventually widened our search to rescues which lead us to DREAM.
We really liked how the DREAM process works to ensure dogs placed in your home would be a good fit. Working closely with Emily, Marcie and Trisha, we went back and forth on several dogs that we were interested in to best fit with our current family pack.
We kept our eyes open waiting and before we knew it we got a call on a JUST rescued pup that DREAM believed would mesh well with our family. My motherly instinct wanted to jump in head first that Friday but reality told me to wait and allow Emily transport her the next day to observe her in a brand new environment.
Even though she wasn’t a long hair dachshund we fell in love instantly!!! She is truly precious, calm and mellow. Our family pack invited her in with no issues so we decided to keep her for a few day to make sure nothing would change.
What happened is that she stole our hearts! Unusual for a dachshund she has demonstrated good trainability learning to potty outside, come for treats and use support stairs. She is a very smart girl who loves to give hugs and kisses.
The saying is "Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them, filling an emptiness we don't even know we have". What a better Anniversary gift than a new puppy dog! My husband and I are BIG supporters of those who volunteer their time for voiceless, defenseless animals that deserve to be saved and cared for.
DREAM is an AMAZING organization for everything that they do. Thank you so much for placing this special girl in our home! We love her to pieces!
WELCOME HOME MELODY!
