Helping Paralyzed Dogs in Need

February 4, 2016| We are doing a happy dance here at Joyful Paws headquarters! Why? Because Alex is the 50th dog the Frankie Wheelchair Fund has granted a wheelchair to! Alex is currently with foster, Sandi, with Dachshund Rescue of South Florida. She sent me ths picture of Alex and said, “Here’s a pic of sweet n snugly Alex in his Eddie’s Wheels. He took to his wheels like a duck to water!” Does not surprise me one bit. I’ve seen time and time again how these dogs get on with the joy of living life — now rolling through the grass, [...]

September 1, 2015| Edit Article How to Hold a Dachshund Properly Two Methods:Holding a Dachshund SafelyKnowing What to Avoid Dachshunds (also known as "wiener dogs") are known for their long body, short legs, and floppy ears. While these adorable dogs make great household companions, their unusual proportions can make them delicate — their long spines are especially sensitive. This means that extra care must be taken to support the dog's back as you pick it up, hold it, and set it back down.[1] Method 1 of 2: Holding a Dachshund Safely Hold a Dachshund Properly Step 1 Version 2.jpg 1 Place one [...]

Is a dachshund right for you and your family?

June 15, 2015|

Is a dachshund right for you and your family? Curious, lively, charming, and brave, the Dachshund is similar to a terrier in his demands to be in on everything. This comical clown loves to play games and has a great sense of humor. He is a loyal little dog, very attached to his family, and he firmly believes that sleeping under the bedcovers is in the Dachshund Bill of Rights. Dachshunds attract devoted followers who would never consider having any other breed. Indeed, Dachshunds are often kept in pairs, which is A-OK with them, since they seem to recognize and [...]

I love my Dachshunds!

November 20, 2013|

I love my Dachshunds! I'm a very lucky person. I have four dachshunds I get to spend all day and night with! I like to call them the “Doxie Nation.” Rommel, the very first dachshund I got, is a classic red. He just celebrated his 10th birthday with us in September. Rommel really loves to play “ball” as we call it (though most refer to it as “fetch”), he loves it so much that he will keep playing until he passes out, with the ball still in his mouth, of course! When I sit at my desk, he is always [...]

Golden retriever-dachshund?

August 12, 2013|

Golden retriever-dachshund mix makes us do a double take I saw this new article and I thought you would all enjoy the photo. You've got to wonder how this happened: "You've got a lot of confidence for a dog your size. I like that," a golden retriever said flirtatiously to a dachshund. "Well, today's your lucky day, because I've got a thing for tall blondes," the dachshund replied with a roguish wink. After a few dates in the park, a coy game of tug and war, the love of a lifetime blossomed between the fetching couple, and along came this [...]

Walmart to fill pet meds for cheap

June 4, 2013|

TAMPA - Chain store pharmacies have more than just people drugs on their shelves. Some retail giants now fill your cat or dog's prescription too. "Those compared to what you get at your veterinarian -- significantly less,” said Amy Stanley, Target Pharmacy Business Partner. Four bucks is what you'll pay for some, but not all, pet medication at Target. Publix offers some pet antibiotics for free. Other big box stores like Sam’s Club and Wal-Mart will fill pet prescriptions too. They are some of the same medications pharmacies stock for us, only in doggy doses, which is why dog owners [...]
