Why I Saved This Life?
Got Tootsie as a 6 week old puppy in 2008 from a family selling their Dachshund puppies on the side of the road Hwy 46 in Bulverde/Spring Branch, Texas by Bill Brown Elementary School. They told me she was born 23-July-2008 and her mom was a Dapple and her dad was a Red. Tootsie has been with my family ever since. We have had several Dachshunds in the past and they are the BEST DOG! Tootsie does get separation anxiety when I leave the room. She loves to go on car rides, walks in the park, and watches TV and sleeps on the couch with me. She has put on some weight (21 lbs now) as she gets older and as she approaches 11 yrs old in 2019, she's getting a white muzzle and feet. In 2018 she came down with Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia (AIHA) and we almost lost her. I rushed her to BluePearl Emergency Vet Clinic in San Antonio and after a blood transfusion, medications, IV, lab tests and procedures and a few days of intensive care hospitalization, her blood work stabilized and she came home. Then 8 months of constant CBC blood monitoring, steroid and anti-coagulation medications followed, we finally got her weaned off her meds, and she has been her healthy, active self self...barking at and chasing squirrels and cats. I love her very much and she is the only dog in the family.
