The Atlantic Canadian Dachshund Rescue, a group that connects unwanted or seized wiener dogs with homes and medical treatment, is appealing for $10,000 in support after seven dogs it recently saved in New Brunswick were found to have severe health problems.
Heather Curran, a volunteer with the not-for-profit group, began fostering one of the dogs a week ago. She said the eight-year-old male dog, named Madison, needed to have all his teeth removed.
“His mouth was completely rotten. All of his teeth were completely rotten … His mouth was a mess,” said Curran.
‘Special little dogs’
Madison is on a diet of mashed dog food. When he came to Curran last Sunday, he stayed in his crate with his tail between his legs. After a few days, Madison is constantly by Curran’s side. The dog doesn’t bark or lick and he doesn’t know how to do any tricks.
“They’re special little dogs. They’re very loving and sweet,” Curran said.
Madison was one of 26 dogs — 19 of which were dachshunds — recently seized from one New Brunswick home. The owner injured herself and was hospitalized, and a local kennel club stepped in to help the dogs. Seven dachshunds came to Nova Scotia while 12 went to foster homes in New Brunswick.
