The Greatest Dachshund Rescue Adoption Story: Max and Milo

Although this has nothing to do with spirit - it will warm your heart. One of the things that I do with my hubby is work in dog rescue with Dachshunds and Weimaraners. We've been fostering a dachshund for the last three months - and he was adopted and reunited with his brother. Here's their story.  - Rob

The Greatest Dachshund Rescue Adoption Story: Max and Milo

Tom,Rob, Cindy, Milo and Max
On November 1, 2015 a Dachshund Rescue Miracle happened for two senior rescue dogs.  Max and Milo came to the rescue 3 months before, were placed in separate foster homes (because of limited space) and were adopted together. 

THEIR STORY: Max and Milo are both 11 years old and long-haired Dachshunds. Max is black and tan and active, and Milo is red and overweight (he ate Max's food apparently).  They grew up together but were turned into Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue (C2CDR.org) by a woman who experienced a divorce and couldn't care for them in their senior years. So, the rescue agreed to take them in.
Milo picked up for adoption day!



Max wondering what was happening
TRANSPORTING THEM FROM INDIANA TO MARYLAND: Since the only foster homes available were in Maryland at the times these brothers of a different mom) came into the rescue, they had to be driven from Indiana to Maryland- and it's all through a series of volunteers.  Donna of  CCDR coordinated with Katie, who arranges dog transports around the Eastern U.S.  They had to go from Indiana on a transport through Ohio, West Virginia and finally to Maryland.

FIRST TRANSPORTER: Scott Elliott had never done a dog transport before, but was asked to help out since he lived in Ohio and there were several transport legs that were unfilled. Scott said " I was approached by my two friends, Rob and Tom, to help transport two very cute dogs along their journey to Maryland. Here's his Video blog about his experience: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVZKqmCP7ro
Tom did the driving

ARRIVAL IN MARYLAND:  Several volunteers provided travel to get Milo and Max east. One volunteer in Pennsylvania also put them both up overnight. 
Finally, on August 2nd, Rob and Tom were at the end of the transport in Maryland. They brought Milo to April for fostering and they fostered Max.

HOW DID THE DOUBLE ADOPTION HAPPEN?

Less than a month before, Cindy came to the Dachshund "Dachtoberfest" in central Pennsylvania and met Rob and Max. Cindy's precious dachshund Reeces passed in April, and she wanted to help other Dachshunds get a loving home.  Cindy immediately fell in love with Max and when Rob told her about his brother Milo, she was interested in adopting them both and reuniting them for life to live out their senior years together.

Cindy Sees Max first!
NOV. 1- TRANSPORTING THEM TO CINDY! Cindy (the adopting mom) and her son Michael live in eastern Pennsylvania, and Max and Milo were being fostered in south-central Maryland. So, early on Sunday, Nov. 1, Rob and Tom picked up Milo at foster mom, April's home in southern Maryland. They put Milo in a crate to hide him from Max, to ensure the reunion was a total surprise to both. 

They returned home with Milo and loaded their 2 Dachshunds and 1 Weimaraner in the back with Milo (in his crate). Tom drove to Delaware while Rob held Max in the passenger seat (buckled in together). It was about a 90 minute drive and Max kept wanting to go in the backseat (where Milo was in the crate).

THE BIG MEETING ON VIDEO! - They met near the Christiana mall in Delaware and brought Max out to meet Cindy (again). Then, Milo's crate was put down as Cindy let Max go over and sniff. Rob opened Milo's crate and both Milo and Max couldn't stop wagging their tails like crazy and sniffing each other. It was really emotional. 

HAPPY ENDING - After 3 months of being separated and in foster care, they were adopted together by a wonderful mom named Cindy who brought them back together. BELOW is a video of their reunion after 3 months when they went to their new forever home together!
Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue (CCDR) is a National Non-Profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to rescuing needy Dachshunds and Dachshund mixes from coast to coast. CCDR has been very successful in achieving the goal to find loving families and forever homes for the dogs they've taken in.


Please support c2cdr.org to help Dachshunds find foster homes, get medical care and find forever homes.
