SPECIAL NEEDS DOXIE NEEDS NEW HOME! AT RISK OF EUTH! NORTH OF JAX (HILLIARD, FL), BIO FROM OWNER: </p><br />
<p>We adopted Jewel, a brown short-haired female spayed Dachshund, from the Nassau County Animal Control, on July 31, 2008.  She had been found abandoned on the side of the road and brought to the shelter on June 23, 2008.  She was flea infested and only weighed 8.4 pounds.  Her estimated age was in the 2-3 year range. </p><br />
<p>On July 25, 2012, Jewel went down in the back and had emergency surgery.  The surgery was not successful, but we were encouraged she would improved with time. We had 2 other Dachshunds that had similar surgery in the past and eventually recovered.  Jewel has not improved and is paralyzed in the hind quarter.  She does not have control of her bowels or bladder and must be confined to a small crate and frequently cleaned.</p><br />
<p>About 2 weeks after Jewel's surgery, my wife fell and broke shoulder.  She was diagnosed with osteoporosis.  She has COPD, serious back problems and other medical issues that makes her unable to do the physical attention that Jewel requires.  My health has deteriorated as well, making a bad situation worse. </p><br />
<p>We have no one to assist us in Jewel's care and would appreciated any assistance you could provide in finding Jewel a loving new home.</p><br />

NEEDS RESCUE PULL.<br /><br /><br /><br />
An adorable Dachshund at YWAC needs rescue pull.<br /><br /><br /><br />
He is, M/N,  19lbs, heartworm negative, about 4-5 years old.  He came in as a stray. He has some dental tarter, not real bad.  He is special needs as he came to us down in the back legs.  Dr. Debolt does not have any definitive diagnosis but knows this is an old injury.  He still has complete ability to defecate and urinate and can use is front legs well.  He has adapted to this injury.  Dr Debolt does not have him on any type  of medication as he does not seem painful or uncomfortable.  We did not do a formal behavior evaluation, but he seems to love everyone he meets.  As with most Dachshunds he seems to really like food.</p><br /><br /><br />
<p>I have attached photos for you.<br /><br /><br /><br />
I know this is a hard one for you all but thought I would give it a try.</p><br /><br /><br />
