Jewell is a very special little darling, small and gentle at only 8 pounds. She was left at a shelter because her back was injured. Apparently, discarded like trash, with no thought to her feelings or concern as to what would become of her. Under these circumstances, there was no way to know how long she has had this injury. So our veterinarian suggested conservative treatment, rest, steroids, pain meds, and plenty of love. Jewell is doing better, but would benefit from a home were her people were home much of the day, where she could be offered regularly water therapy, and given time to heal. She can run and play at this point, though her gait is funny, her desire is great! Her exercise is still quite limited per her veterinarian. But she is gaining strength daily.
If you have been looking for a darling, to love you, to be your best friend, and then look no further, Jewell is a sweet bundle of love, waiting to be enfolded into her forever home.
She is fairly house trained, but has difficulty controlling her urine. When she has to go, she really has to go… She does use the doggie door here when she is able.
If you are a patient, kind and caring person, who can give this little sweetheart the life she deserves, please fill out an adoption application today to give her a furever home!
If you are interested in adopting or learning more about Jewell, contact her foster home: DeeAnn, Ft. Smith, AR: DeesDawgs@aol.com. An online adoption application is available at the Furever Dachshund Rescue website.
