An Update on Marbles, the Hermaphrodite Dachshund

We're happy to report that 'Marbles,' the hermaphrodite dachshund without a tail is doing great after surgery. Marbles is now 100% boy. The vet could not find any female genitalia in Marbles, and reconstructed his penis. Donations from friends and dachshund lovers all over the country covered his surgery costs, which were $850.
Our friend Johnny Ortez, the LA Small Dogs Examiner offers up a great recap, including a video, don't miss it. Marbles sure is cute running around in that vid.

DREAM Dachshund Rescue once had a little boy dachsie, "Andy" whose penis lacked a sheath. He had only the urethra, hanging exposed from his body. Village Vets of Decatur (www.thevillagevets.com) helped Andy to become "Andi"!

Thanks for the great blog!
