Julie Breault examines 'Red Rocket,' a stray Dachshund who was hit by a car and had his left front leg amputated at Heartland Animal Hospital in Bel Aire, Kansas.
This handsome guy will steal your heart straight away. Found as a stray who had been hit by a car near Bel Aire, Kansas, Rocket benefited from a fund set up 4 years ago for an abused dog named 'Magnum' who didn't pull through. Excerpt from The Wichita Eagle:
The latest to benefit is Red Rocket, a dachshund whose "resilient personality" reminds Heartland practice manager Julie Breault of that puppy who licked her hand in August 2005 after she helped remove the wires someone had tied around his fragile body.
"He just reminds us of Magnum, that spirit of 'Please help me,' " Breault said.
"You can tell he just wants you to love him."
