Dachshund News Roundup!

Dachshunds are the cure for what ails you!

UPDATE April 24, 7:14 AM: An Ann Arbor police officer was able to track down the stolen dachshund puppy. He noticed a homeless man carrying a dog for the first time, and later saw the pup's photo on the front page of the Ann Arbor News. He had remembered seeing the man getting a free meal at a church, so he went there and asked around to find where he was. Read all about it at mlive.com.

Pampered black and tan wirehair 'Thea Marie' enjoys staying at the Atlantic City Pet Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey. About 70% of the hotel's guests are visitors from out of town. Read all about the newer business at Press of Atlantic City.


Finally, smooth chocolate and tan 'Hershey' wants to remind everyone about the dangers of xylitol in dogs, the ingredient commonly found in sugar-free gum. Hershey inhaled 15 mini-sticks of Trident, and soon found himself at the emergency vet. Two years ago, the rescue boy got into a similar predicament with a chocolate advent calendar.
