Wirehair Wednesday: Rescue Edition!

Smiles!  If you live in the MidWest, and you're looking to add to your pack, you couldn't go wrong with this cute little black and tan piebald wirehair named 'Basil' currently being fostered by MidWest Dachshund Rescue.  A MWDR associate writes: 

Dear Joey and Maggie,

Last weekend MWDR got 9 young dogs from a St. Louis puppymill raid and this one is so cute she's hilarious. Meet Basil, a 6 month old piebald wirehaired puppy mill rescue who's a foster at Midwest Dachshund Rescue. She's got these loooong Groucho Marx eyebrows. You can tell her I called her funny-lookin', just don't call her late for dinner!

We don't see that Basil's photo is up yet on MWDR's site, but get your application in for Basil or one of the many beautiful and loving Dachshunds waiting for their forever home.

OMGosh she is so cute! If I lived close by I'd certainly be tempted to adopt her! I believe Baron would fall in love! Hope she finds the perfect forever home!

Yes, Basil was on the Piebald Party rescue van bringing the little girls to freedom. Lots of young, sweet little furkids making their way into rescue these days. Dachshunds Rule!

I´d add her to my pack of two, if I were in the sates, or there were a way to get her o Portugal!

Basil looks alot like Christel my double dapple piebald wirehair mini dachs who was rescued from a puppy mill 4+ years ago. I adopted her from HUA. She is the sweetest dog ever! My greatest joy is to see her enjoying her freedom and running happily around the yard. God Bless to all the rescuers!

Please say that Basil is coming to the meet-up! So precious.
And I must say that this photo of Maggie is incredible--she really is beautiful. Is a shot of the handsome Joey coming up next?

Thanks so much for once again bringing attention to our rescue. Basil is indeed adorable and unfortunately, there are always more from where she came from.
