Please note: The dogs in ODH's Final Refuge care are not adoptable due to medical reasons and all are in permanent homes. Your sponsorship supports the veterinary expenses for these dogs - and we thank you!
Edsgar is a dapple longhaired miniature dachshund, and was 14 plus years old when he found himself in need of a new home. As with many ODH Final Refuge dogs, Edsgar was in poor health when he came into care. A flea infestation had left him severely anemic, and arthritis and previous damage to his hind legs left him unable to walk easily.
Thanks to ODH donors and fosters, he quickly had his immediate medical needs treated, and when he was well enough for surgery, he was neutered and had a hernia repaired.
But if the best day of his life was when ODH pulled him from the shelter, a close second came a few months later. His ODH Final Refuge family got him a puppy! And while past injuries mean that he will never have a proper gait, he has a spring in his step as he romps around the yard and the house tussling and cuddling with the puppy who now outweighs him.
