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|
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.

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.

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).

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!
