My Keesha Dog

I want to tell you about my beloved Keesha. She has past now, last October but no one who knew her will ever forget this precious little girl. She was a red miniature Dachshund. I was grieving the lost of my Rottweiler when my daughter called me one night from where she was babysitting. She was crying. I asked what was wrong and she started telling me a story about a little dog be beaten with a high heeled shoe. She wanted to bring the dog home. Me still grieving my Rotty told her I just couldn't handle having another dog so soon. She became very insistent about this dog. She told me she was a female and I'm partial to males so that didn't help. Then she told me it was a doxy and her name was Keesha. As a child growing up my parents raised doxy's so I truly have a love for the breed. And her name being Keesha was the icing on the cake. My husband I I's 1st dog was a Siberian Husky and his name was Keesha. We had him 15 years. We were there the night he was born and we were with him when he past. At that point I told her to bring the dog home. When she came in the door holding this little cutie my heart sank. Both of her eye's were bloody, her nose was cut she had little lumps all over her the worst of them being on her head, she had a stab wound on her chest and she was skinny as a rail. I immediately took over the situation cleaning her wounds and feeding her. She then ran under the couch hiding and shaking from fear. It took us about a week to get her to come out and about a month to get her healed up and about 3 months to get good weight on her. We had her for 7 yrs. and she was spoiled every minute of those 7 years. We were told by a family member of the SOB's were she came from that she was 6 or 7 years old when my daughter took her. But till she pasted she would still shake if you raised your voice if you moved towards her to quickly or startled her she would wet herself and she had abandonment syndrome very badly. She never would potty train either. But she stole everyone's heart and she will always have mine. :(

How sad. I hope they caught who did this. How can anyone be so cruel?

The world needs more people like you. I know too many people who wouldn't have cared enough to bring a dog into their lives who needed a lot of care. <br />
