I have always had dachshunds since I was a little girl and when the time came that I was ready to adopt, I knew I had to get a dachshund. I always said I wanted to rescue, so after looking around I decided that DRoH was a great option. Originally, I liked a different dog on the website. I arranged a time to meet him, but had a few reservations about his personality and age. DRoH suggested that I meet Snickers too, since he was a big younger. It worked out that I was going to meet Snickers first. A good thing, too, because as soon as I saw him wagging his tail at me at his foster home, I was in love. I bent down to pet him and he immediately went between my legs and just stared up at me. I sat down and he found his place right in my lap. It was seriously love at first sight. I knew then that he was the perfect dog for me.

As soon as the papers were signed, and Snickers became mine, I changed his name to Reece. Now, over 6 months later, he knows his name and he knows his mom. Reece is the best dog I have ever met or owned. He comes when called, loves to snuggle and play, isn't terribly vocal, and has the cutest habit of hiding all his toys (of which he has MANY!) for me to find in odd corners and behind pillows. I can't imagine my life without this guy, and I'm so thankful for DRoH for not only rescuing this boy, but for helping me find my canine soul-mate. I was even told that he had some separation anxiety, but he has been a perfect angel. I am so thankful for DRoH and my precious pup Reece!
