Gordon was originally a Dachshund Lovers of Texas foster dog back in '09, when he and an older Dachshund were adopted together by a wonderful woman in Dallas. Over the years Gordon's Dachshund friend passed away, his owner started dealing with some age-related health issues, and Gordon became a little large due to the inactivity and lots of treats.
Sadly, we received a call mid-June that Gordon's adopter had passed away in her home. She was a smart and loving owner, so she made sure all the neighbors had our contact information, so we knew the call would come someday but never expected someday to be this soon.
Gordon has returned to Dachshund Lovers of Texas. He is adapting well and is already more active and starting to lose some weight. He is alert and has a lot of personality for a 13 year old standard with a weight issue, so we have a good feeling about Gordon's long-term prospects. In the meanwhile, he's a good boy, friendly with folks and a bit feisty with other Dachshunds- your basic confident old man enjoying his senior years!
