DOGS OK! CATS OK! No Young Kids

Cello is a pure bred, standard, wire hair Dachshund. You don’t see these dogs very often but boy is he cute!  Cello was part of a hoarding situation and was going to be taken to a shelter, but he suddenly became lame so we were asked to take him and get him the medical help he needed. Cello had a herniated disc in his back causing his hind legs not to work (common in his breed). In these cases there is a short window to have surgery done to remove the disc and hopefully restore mobility. We were able to get the surgery done right away and now Cello is recovery and receiving physical therapy. He is expected to make a full recovery. Cello is the sweetest boy and he loves other dogs. He will make a great addition to any home with adults and older children. Cello’s surgery was very expensive so any donations to help pay for his surgery are greatly appreciated!
