The Dachshund Underground Railroad: Maggie and Gertie's Start To A New Life

Meet red smooth piebald 'Maggie,' and black and tan smooth 'Gertie.' We had the honor of helping with their rescue and transport yesterday; they traveled about 250 miles on their start to a new home through MidWest Dachshund Rescue. Their previous humans didn't have enough time to spend with them; they have spent most of their lives outside under a tree in a 3x6 foot chain-link enclosure with no roof. They were very wiggly and a bit scared, so the photos aren't too great. Here they are at the vets after their long travel. Maggie is about 7.5 pounds, and Gertie is about 7 pounds, each around 2 years old. With a little love and guidance, they will be fantastic companions.....we especially fell head over heels in love with Gertie, but both are such sweet girls. Their tails never stop. After a hopefully clean bill of health and spays, they will go to foster homes and will soon be available for adoption.
If you would be interested in such little beauties, and you live in the midwest, contact MWDR, or check your local Dachshund Rescue.

What adorable girls. The are on thier way to a great life.
Mom is signed up as a volunteer with the Underground Railroad. She hasn't been called to do a transport, she thinks it's where we live. We're pretty isolated.
Great job.
Love Ruby & Penny
