“Waiting for Sadie”


Description from Karokat: My husband and I have adopted (long-distance) a 3-year-old miniature long-haired dachshund named Sadie through a dachshund rescue in Indiana. She is black and tan with white on her chest and the tip of her tail. Sadie has an eye problem that her previous owners ignored - and then they dumped her, saying she was irritable and snappish. Sadie's foster-mom, a vet tech in Indiana, says that Sadie is a sweet and snuggly little thing who just needs a good home and her eye meds. We're going to get Sadie after Easter - we can't wait!

    What a great pick for your little Sadie!!! Where in Indiana is she right now? We are in Kokomo, one hour north of Indianapolis. How far does she have to travel to get to you? Are you coming to pick her up?

    Hi Karokat, I too love the little doxy stinkers. We raised and sold them for a while. I would love to do that again. Tried to always make sure they went to good homes. Only one man was I not real comfortable with. I wish I would have said no to him. I am glad to hear it sounds Sadie will soon be a happy well taken care of little miss. Bless you.

    Thanks for all the comments! It’s nice to know there are other doxie lovers who are also bead lovers. It must have been great to have a bunch of little doxie puppies running around, Faithful Chick.

    Right now, Sadie is in Fort Wayne, IN. Is that close to you, Lynn? We’ll be picking her up a few days after Easter, if all goes well. Here’s a picture of Sadie.

    What a sweet little doll Sadie is, Karokat!!! Fort Wayne is about 2 hours Northeast of Kokomo. We have a toy poodle named Shelby who was also a rescued dog. We adopted her (or she adopted us!) when she was 7 years old — she is now 12 1/2 and gets sweeter each day! :D Here are a couple of pix of The Amazing Shelby (one is with me, the not always amazing — LOL):

    Sadie is a beauty! Here is our Raven. This was taken quite a few years ago. She is elderly and fragile now, and she won’t be with us for very much longer. Every day shared is a gift. Best wishes with Sadie!

    TJ, your Raven is such a beauty! You are right, we should treasure each day as a gift with our fur babies! :)

    Shelby and Raven are both such cute dogs! Our pets really are little fur angels – they give us so much love. My husband and I lost our two old dogs, Tommy and Coda, in 2008 and 2009, so we decided that 2010 was the time to adopt a new dog. Here’s another picture that Sadie’s foster mom sent us.

    She’s so sweet looking! I’ll bet you are counting down the days….. :D

    Karokat says:

    Yep, we are – except there is now a kink in our plans. A friend of mine from Massachusetts (Raven S) was supposed to come down by train and pet/house sit for us while we drive to Indiana – but New England was hit by flooding and Amtrak has stopped service up there – we don’t know for how long. My friend was supposed to be here for Easter, and then hubby and I were going to leave for Indiana on Tuesday. I’m biting my nails wondering when Amtrak will start running again!

    Where do you live, Karokat? Do you have a long drive to Indiana?

    My best to you and Sadie. My dogs are my life. Well, I guess my husband is in there too, but my Golden and my Chow/Border Collie mix (yea imagine that) are my heart. Good luck. Hopefully, the Easter Bunny will smile sweetly on you!

    Awwww, Sadie is beautiful, as are Raven and Shelby. I too have adopted a vision impaired baby who was sorely neglected, she only has one eye, and is losing her vision in it, but we’re working with her. Her name is Bella, she’s a long haired chihuahua. Here’s a picture of her.

    Oh, she’s almost 6 years old.

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Aw, Bella is sooooooo cute, Ravin! :D Shelby lost her hearing almost 2 years ago, but you’d never know it. We still talk to her just like before! Maybe she can read our lips…..LOL

    Karokat says:

    Bella is adorable, Ravin! It’s great that you took in a vision-impaired dog. Our old Tommy, who passed away in 2008, was blind and deaf from birth – hence the name Tommy. We adopted him when he was 4,and he was one of the smartest dogs I’ve ever known. He used his nose and some kind of sixth sense to get around, and somehow he always knew when we opened the treat drawer. Maybe our other dog, Coda, told him. Who knows?

    Lynn Eileen, I live in Southern NJ, near Philadelphia, so it’s about 635 miles to Fort Wayne, IN to pick up Sadie. Mapquest says 10 1/2 hours but I find their estimates to be very low. It always takes longer with rest stops and traffic.

  20. Vampire Chickie Ravin
    Vampire Chickie Ravin says:

    Bella is awesome, I’m glad I adopted her as well. I rescued Onyx in hopes that we can work with them together and she can be a companion to Bella as her vision goes. Bella is very clever, but the vision issues can be difficult, I’ve only had her for a year, and the people I adopted her from didn’t work with her at all. She’s worth the effort though. :)
    N.J. huh? Near Philly…so you prolly know that big, huge flea Market right over the jersey border then huh?

    You mean the Pennsauken Mart?

    Good luck with Bella. Sometimes I think it’s easier to deal with a totally blind dog than with a one-eyed dog or a partially blind dog. They get more scared when they can sort of see something.

    TJC your little Sadie is still a little beauty. All of our doxys were short haired mom and dad were red. Each litter we had all reds except 1 black, but luckily 1 chocolate. I kept a little guy black named him Boogie he died about 2 years ago now. He collapsed on the floor and just looked like he was sleeping but I knew the minute I saw him he wasn’t. I waited a while before I started looking couldn’t tell my husband. Got another black and tan. His dad was a show dog from Wisconsin, or Minnasota. Named him Kirby. 2 Picture of Kirby. Last Boogie & Squirt aka Buddy.
