Arrival Story: My husband and I got married back in June of 2002 and we were so interested in adopting a dog. A month later, we adopted a miniture dachshund from our local rescue group, Atlanta Pet Rescue. She quickly became a part of our family and we have thoroughly enjoyed her company over the past 7 years. However, we now have a son who is 20 months old and we both work, and therefore, we find that Lucy is receiving less and less attention from us. She is thought to be b/t the ages of 10-12 and just recently had her vet check up. The vet found nothing wrong with any of her blood work (this apparently is unheard of!); however, since she is old she is losing some hearing and eyesight. She spends most of her day at home by herself and we are hoping that we can find a family that can spend more time with her and give her the affection she deserves.
