Meet Sadie Jane of Wagamuffins—a Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue Success Story!
It was some time in February of 2015 that my husband and I first laid eyes on Sadie. From the moment we saw that picture on Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue’s website, we knew we had to have her. She melted our hearts from a photograph, we couldn’t imagine how we would feel once we met her in person. In the meantime, however, Sadie was in pretty bad shape.
She came to C2CDR extremely ill, urinating blood with a bladder stone the size of an egg. Before we could even think about adopting her, she needed surgery to have it removed. She almost didn’t make it, but as we came to find out, this girl just loves life too much to let a bladder stone stop her. With the help and aid of funding from compassionate donors, she was able to have that surgery and live!
We finally got to take Sadie home on April 12, 2015. Immediately she felt like part of the family. We were worried our 6-year-old dachshund, Daisy, wouldn’t get along with her. But, as I was leaving for work that Monday morning for their first day alone together, I came downstairs to catch them in the middle of a play fight. It warmed my heart to know that Daisy seemed to love Sadie as much as we did.
It’s been 3 years now and every day is an adventure with this little lady. Whether she is pretending to be a prairie dog looking for attention, or rolling on her back for belly rubs (her favorite!), she always brings a smile on our faces. Her adoption inspired us to do more and give back to help other dogs that were in need like Sadie was years ago. I became a member and foster mom through the rescue organization Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue and try to spread the word about rescue every day. After all, rescuing a dog means saving and changing a life for the better….not just for the dog…for you as well!
