Rehoming Dachshund Twins – Meg and Amy’s Story

Rehoming | Adoption | Emergency Fostering

Meg and Amy were found in a dreadful condition in September. Look at the girls now!!!
They have done so well in their new home and are looking extremely healthy.

They are thriving in their new environment although it hasn’t always been plain sailing !!!

They both love chewing items they shouldn’t. Meg has already destroyed a pair of Doc Marten boots and the sausage dog door stop!!!

She even had a go at the remote control for the television!!! They are both so loving though, that they have been forgiven!!

Recently, the owner was poorly and paramedics came to the house.

Initially, Meg and Amy were scared, but by the time the lady had started to receive treatment, Amy was on the bed with her head across the owner’s chest watching the ambulance crew and checking everything was fine.

Meg and Amy are very much loved and they are clearly giving lots of love back in return. They love snuggles and pinching the pillows at bedtime.

Meg and Amy are getting lots of exercise romping through the local National Trust fells and they love bouncing in the heather. Their confidence is growing and their anxieties diminishing.

They are now happy to be left alone at home for a short time and just sleep quietly. They are always excited for their owners to return, however, and give lots of licks and waggy tail greetings!!!

Their initial fear of men is also being overcome. This picture shows how much they adore the man of the house.

It is a wonderful outcome for these beautiful girls. Rehoming dachshund twins that need to stay together presents challenges of its own. So it is so lovely seeing them find the loving home they deserve after their sad start in life.

We wish everyone in this new family a happy future with lots of special times ahead.

Claire who represents the Yorkshire area matched us with our first Daschund and made the whole process so smooth and professional. Our Reggie is an amazing little boy who is making himself at home well and truly! We’re so grateful to Claire for her ongoing advice and guidance she’s amazing! ❤️🐶

I took in my little Albie 10 days ago. At five months old all he needed was a little love and attention. He thrives in every situation and I’m so proud at how well he is doing. Being described as not trained at all, he is pretty much trained in all aspects already. From the scared little boy in the crate, he is a confident fun loving companion. My coordinator was Linda who was super helpful and I couldn’t be more grateful 💕
