Sweenie, a 6-year-old Dachshund, came to us because his family was moving and they could not take him with them. This sweet boy loves going for walks and getting belly rubs. He arrived with a mild heart murmur and severe periodontal and dental disease from lack of dental care over a prolonged period. The majority of his teeth had to be extracted and Sweenie will need to be fed soft or canned food permanently. However, despite his hardships, Sweenie was given a second chance and was adopted in September of 2017 and is enjoying life in his new home.
