Dachshund Heroine Recovers After Wolf Attack

Meet 8-year-old 'Jada,' who hails from South Range, Wisconsin, near the Minnesota border. Jada and her 1-year-old Dachshund sister 'Lana' were sitting on the front porch of their home with their human when they ran barking around the side of the house. Their human heard a horrible bark and investigated, only to see a wolf toss Lana aside and go after Jada. Excerpt from the Superior Telegram:

Jada is a 15-pound hero. The eight-year-old dauchsund hurled itself at a wolf June 9 to save a fellow canine, Lana.
“I didn’t know if I’d have to shoot her,” Lundeen said. “I mean, her stomach’s hanging out. Her son says ‘Well mom, is she alive?’ Well, yeah. He said, ‘Well, then there’s hope.’”
They drove to Superior Animal Hospital, where the dauchsund spent 3½ hours in surgery.

“She’s full of many, many staples,” Lundeen said, affectionately calling the dog “Frankenweinie.”
Lana was uninjured.

Read the whole terrifying story at the Superior Telegram. We're so glad to hear that these girls are doing great.

Being from nearby Duluth, MN, this story really hit home. We constantly keep a close eye on our very brave little wiener dog, but even so, something like this can easily happen when you live in a rural area like this. Thank you for sharing, what a wonderful story of big-hearts, survival and bravery.
