All I Want for Christmas…is Bean Goods!

Wienerful news for every good boy and girl…and the naughty ones, too! The weenanistas over at Bean Goods are putting a little something in our stockings this year…

It’s no secret that Bean Goods are now icons for fashion lovers and crazy doxie people alike, and this Dox-mas season their spirit of giving is extended to us. All through November and December, 15% of sales from the “A Little Wiener Christmas Adoption” shirts will be donated to support Dachshunds and Friends Rescue. We couldn’t be more honored to be included in their philanthropic efforts.

These extremely adorable shirts come in two different designs, the heather grey sweatshirt pictured above and the rosey red baseball t-shirt below. Bean Goods’ shirts are notably comfy but this particular shirt runs about 1 – 2 sizes small. Best of all, they are clear front runners for any kooky holiday shirt contest.

You don’t need a promo code to buy these shirts on behalf of the rescue BUT if you want to score an extra 10% off ALL Bean items available we’ve got the tea. Our super star volunteer, Bianca Edgar is an official “Weenbassador” for Bean Goods and spilled the beans (not sorry for the pun) on her exclusive discount code. Everything you purchase on Bean Goods gets a 10% discount when you use the promo code beangoodsrules at checkout. They sell a lot more than just women’s clothes, it’s doxie frocks, home goods and more – we love all their unique designs and frequently stalk their website for what’s new!

Be sure to tag us in your Dox-mas shirts and start following Bean Goods on social media (they are on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest) or get on their mailing list. We’re serious about that, their emails are super cute and have special sales, definitely a breath of fresh air for any inbox.

Big thank you to Bianca, Bean Goods and all our friends that nominated us to be selected. We love our community and are tremendously blessed to have so much support.

We are over the moon about this adorable curvy girl, she just came to us from the City of Stockton Animal Shelter. Even though she’s got some healthy weight goals to achieve, she’s still young at around 7-8 years old and has the sweetest personality.

The only thing missing, is an AWESOME name to match everything else about her. That’s where YOU come in.

Buddy – Every Life is Important

buddy_img_0869

4-year-old dachshund Buddy was surrendered to a shelter by his family after becoming paralyzed in the hind quarters due to Intervertebral Disk Disease (IVDD).

Donate to Buddy’s Care

Buddy dragged himself around his home and then at the kennel at the shelter for nearly a month without any ability to use his back legs. Thankfully one of the staff members at the animal shelter took Buddy home to care for him while attempting to find a rescue. We, at Dachshunds and Friends Rescue, were contacted in hopes that we could rescue this little man. Before we could say yes we had to find a qualified foster. This is when our fabulous volunteer and foster extraordinaire Jannie Baker stepped up and didn’t hesitate to foster Buddy. Jannie owns two dachshunds that have recovered from IVDD and has the necessary knowledge to care for Buddy. Once we received Buddy we saw the wounds on his back legs and feet from dragging himself on the floor. It was a pitiful sight and extremely hard to watch him drag himself. There are some things that can really affect even a seasoned rescuer and this is one of them. Buddy was immediately put in a crate to limit his movement. Our goal was to get Buddy the care he needed. Within a day and a half, we got him in to see a Neurologist/Neurosurgeon at a specialty hospital.

Buddy had an MRI which showed he needed surgery right away. That same evening (1/4/18) Buddy went into surgery. He was found to have fibrous matter encasing his spinal cord at the L12/L13 injury area. His doctor had never seen anything that extreme and thought it was a mixture of blood and disc gel that somehow combined together to create this matter. His surgeon had to slowly peel back and remove layers of the substance. By the end of the surgery, he was able to remove 80%. The substance will be biopsied.

Buddy is resting after surgery. He will need several months of recovery and rehab. We will know more over the next few days, weeks and months. Odds are in this little guy’s favor. Prayers for sweet Buddy.

Since we didn’t have time to raise the funds needed for this very expensive surgery we had to pay the $4,600 down payment with our credit card. We need to raise money to pay off the down payment and remaining balance. We are hoping you can make a donation to help us pay off our debt. Any amount would truly be appreciated.

We can’t do this alone……..it takes a village in the rescue world.
