Dachshund Rescue of Houston
Awesome Adoptions 2001
I knew them in a heartbeat, I could tell they felt it too.
They said, "We have been waiting for a special dog like you."
Now every night I say a prayer to all the gods that be.
"Thank you for the life I live and all you've given me.
But most of all protect the dogs in the pound and on the street.
And send a rescue person to lift them off their feet." - Arlene Pace

From Charlotte, Harrison's adopter (3/18/10): It is with a very sad heart and a HUGE empty spot in my world that I write this. "Harry" (Harrison) the longhaired Dachsie with the lobster claw foot, who I adopted from DROH in October 2001, left me on Sunday to go live with Jesus. Words cannot express what delight he brought to my world and my mom's world. Even my sister loved Harry, and she is not a dog person. Everyone who met Harry loved him and he loved them back. He made regular visits with me to the Humane Society of Southeast Texas (where I am a regular volunteer) and was loved by all. If I didn't bring him, I was questioned as to why he was not with me. I took him with me to many a shelter function, sort of as a mascot. He had the sweetest spirit and my sister repeatedly said "Harry is a HAPPY DOG". Much like a person who is handiCAPABLE, Harry didn't know he was "different" and it made him all that more special.
