Meet a Lowcountry Dog: Romeo

I am passionate about dogs and try to be as active as I can in dachshund rescue (All-American Dachshund Rescue & Furever Dachshund Rescue). Next month will be one year since I rescued Romeo from All American Dachshund Rescue. He was 15 months old at the time and extremely skittish!! He was more calm around other dogs than humans, which is very unusual for a doxie. My first dachshund lived to be 16 and my second lived to be 14.

It turns out that Romeo was a breeder surrender when the economy first dropped out. He had been in a crate with other dachshunds for most of the first 15 months of his life. He turned 2 this past February. He is such a constant companion to me.

We are active in fostering other dachshunds now. When you see him, I think you will see that Romeo is as handsome as his name. This was the name he had when I adopted him and I kept it. I thought he had enough change for one little fella!

I would have to say the most memorable moment I have spent with Romeo is the day that I drove to the Upstate to get him from the person who was fostering him at the time. He wasn't too crazy about me but I was ecstatic about him!
