Dachshund Foster

On Friday, Dachshund Rescue of North America pulled this little guy from a local animal shelter. He has numerous medical problems which the shelter could not provide care for. He had been at the shelter for a week and had been seen by a vet but was not getting any medicine or care beyond that. Due to the shelter's inability to properly care for him and the reality that most likely he would not be adopted due to his condition, he was pulled. I am currently his foster mom. He has demodectic mange (which fortunately is not contagious), kennel cough, hookworm, bacterial infection, ear infections, dental problems, and needs to be neutered. For the time being, he is in quarantine at my house until we can get the kennel cough and hookworm treated. After that he will be able to interact with my dogs. He is such a sweet dog and did not deserve this. However, he is on his road to recovery and will have a life filled with love, attention, and care. It is estimated he is 1-2 years old and I have named him Quincy.
