When we lost our beloved male dachshund (Vinny) in April we took some time to mourn the loss. We also wanted to allow our senior female dachshund (Lily) to have some time as an "only dog". It soon became apparent that we all missed having a second dog. Lily was lonely and withdrawn. We began to look for a rescue who would fit into our family.

We knew as soon as we met Max (formerly Gage) that his sweet charming disposition is just what Lily needed for a companion. One issue that we had to consider was that Lily was dog aggressive and did not get along with other dogs until ......she met Max. The transformation was amazing, she was soon acting like a much younger version of herself! Within 24 hours, they were laying together on a bed and have been inseparable since. Max has certainly made himself at home with us and we could not be happier.

As for us, we are smitten. Max is a loving and affectionate dog. He has not met a lap he does not like. He is the perfect fit for our family. We cannot imagine anyone ever giving this little guy up. We are so grateful to Dream Dachshund for rescuing him. Max is one of a kind - but most certainly the right one for us. Thank you all again!

Bruce, Jennifer, and Lily
