Surrendering your dog – Cello & Florences’ Story

Surrendering a beloved pet is hard for any caring owner, even more so when you have a pair of beautiful, brother & sister, dachshunds.

Surrendering your dog. Cello and Florence a pair of smooth haired dachshunds relax on a leather chair

Cello and Florence were surrendered to Dachshund Rescue earlier this year under sad circumstances.
Their owners had to return to working away from home which meant leaving their dogs alone for long hours.

They both knew that they would have to make a heart-breaking decision as Cello and Florence meant the world to them. They were brave enough to put the dogs first and with heavy hearts took them to meet their local Dachshund Rescue coordinator, Michelle, who would find them their new forever home.

Many tears were shed by everyone involved as Cello and Florence were handed over to Michelle. 

Michelle searched through our database, knowing that these beautiful dachshunds deserved to be in a lovely home.

She knew how loved they had been and how difficult it had been for their owners to surrender them. Michelle wanted them to know that their dogs would be safe and well cared for.

She found a wonderful couple who were thrilled to get Michelle’s call and who immediately welcomed the siblings pairing into their home and they quickly became a part of the family.

Michelle helped give them guidance on all parts of their lives. From playing with toys to sleeping through the night to ensure they settled into their new environment as quickly as possible as Cello and Florence had come from a loving home.

The couple recognised the help and support of the Dachshund Rescue team and were especially grateful to Michelle for making them feel like the best parents and giving them confidence.

Soon the siblings began to relax in their new situation and felt they deserved a new adventure.

Just 2 weeks later the newly formed family went on holiday to Scotland.  Cello and Florence had the best time splashing in the sea and playing in the sand having the best time and revelling in the beautiful Scottish coastline. It felt like the family was complete.

Back at home Cello and Florence have become part of the local community and are admired by the neighbours. They have made friends with new dogs of different breeds and other dachshunds who live nearby. 

A lovely story and we wish Cello and Florence a wonderful future with their new adoring parents 💜💜💜💜 We love a happy ending xx

While it’s always difficult to let go of beloved pets, it’s heart-warming to see owners putting the needs of their animals first. In this case, we were able to work with Cello & Florences’ previous owners which helped us to find an ideal new loving home for them.

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 💕
