CUDDLES- female senior Dachshund-Adopted

When Last Hope chose a senior red Dachshund as a pup passenger on last weekend’s Georgia transport, we were told the older dog was a male.
We didn’t think his name was flattering so we renamed the dog BOSCO after a beloved Last Hope red Dachshund long gone.
But upon arrival at Last Hope we found out our chubby Doxie was a girl. She was renamed CUDDLES which rhymes with her demeaning name…soon after we learned CUDDLES background story from her Georgia shelter.
? Here it is:
“We received a call at our shelter from a family in a neighboring county with no Animal shelter, Humane Society or Animal Control.
They were frantically looking for help for a “pregnant dog” they found wandering alone down a rural dirt road a few weeks prior.
Even though they were out of our service area, we knew we could find help- so we had them bring her to us.
Well, pretty CUDDLES turned out to be chunky, not pregnant. Since she was in such poor condition when she was found, the good family thought she was pregnant when she started putting on weight. We had to giggle.
CUDDLES did wonderful with her finders, including their 2 year old child.
What a lovely dog who deserves so much more than being discarded down a dark country road as she aged.
She was at her temporary Last Hope when she was found- how lucky that she will end up at the Long Island Last Hope.”
? To meet CUDDLES by appointment at Last Hope in Wantagh, please complete and submit a dog adoption application found on the Last Hope website homepage.

I've found my forever home! Thank you!
