Arrival Story:
Little miss Zhiva was previously owned by a person who no longer wanted her and would not bring her to a shelter or rescue because they believed that she would be euthanized. I became aware of their need to "get rid of her" and strongly advised them that this was not the case at all, and the person replied "Well if she ain't gone by Friday, I am just gonna hafta put her down myself I guess"...Zhiva was a 6 month old, healthy puppy at this time and had spent her entire life so far gated in a laundry room, so she didn't "annoy" her previous owner. Who apparently got her as a gift and preferred cats instead. Anyway, long story short...my family already has a male Basset Hound named Basil and a Female Cattle dog named Jasmin so I was only intending one convincing this person to bring her to a rescue or shelter but when they said they would be putting her down at the end of the week, my animal-lover heart caved and I came home with a baby Dachshund. Needless to say, my husband questions my sanity daily.

She is Black and Tan, about 8lbs, and LOVES kids and other dogs!
