The Inspiring Story of Carrick

Adoptable Dachshund Carrick

Adoptable Dachshund Carrick has now found a loving forever home. For the first time in his life, he knows comfort and love. If you are looking to adopt – see Adoptable Dogs HERE.

Pictures speak louder than words, in this case for sure.  Carrick had a hard life as he was locked in a shed for most of it. But despite it all, he is a real trooper and a joy to be around.  Sometimes, the dogs who’ve had the hardest time, are the sweetest dogs of all.

He was recently neutered and did very well with the surgery and recovery.

Physically speaking, his lower jaw has deteriorated due to lack of care over the years and there is not a single tooth in his mouth.  However, he has a ferocious appetite and he actually eats dry kibble better than wet food.  He scoops up the kibble with his tongue where the wet food slides right off before he can get it near his throat.  

He is not in any discomfort from his jaw condition and he does not slobber at all unless he is panting.  The only other physical condition we have found is some arthritis in his lower back.  Again, if you think that slows him down at all you would be wrong.  In fact he’s got quite the spring to his step and his tail is always wagging.

Carrick has had enough hardship and neglect in his life that we were careful to choose a forever home for him that will provide love on almost a constant basis and companionship and care as priorities.  

He is a clown and he doesn’t know it…he just goes about his day being “Carrick” and you can’t help but laugh at his antics.  He has an expression on his face almost constantly that seems to say “What’s up?”.  And he lets you hold him in your arms like a baby and rub his belly.

Carrick is settling in just fine at his forever home! His new mommy loves him so much. she is giving him additional TLC by carrying him around in a sling. For a dog who didn’t know love and care, he is making up for lost time! It does the soul good to see how happy he is. Knowing that he will live out his days understanding that he is safe, well-fed, and loved – well, this is why we do what we do!
