What a blessing!

Matthew, (formerly known as Duncan and before that, Samoa) has been in our family for nearly three weeks and I have remarked to many people, that it seems like we have had him forever!

I was not looking for a Dachshund, nor had I ever had a Dachshund; I was just looking for a little fellow with whom I could love and snuggle, one that would fit into our lifestyle and get along with our other rescue dogs. My daughter first showed me DRoH's website and now I realize that it must have been divine providence that led me there.

Matthew is just the perfect match. He made fast and steady friends with our 70 pound white Boxer mix, Patch, and tolerates the playfulness of my daughter's little Italian Greyhound mix, Chloe. He enjoys romping in the yard in Houston and chasing squirrels in Central Texas. He and Patch run up and down the deck and then rest side by side. All in all, this little fellow has stolen my heart and added so much to our family. Thank you DRoH for the work that you do and a special shout out to the wonderful couple that was fostering Matthew. They loved on him until I found him....a heartfelt thanks to all!!
