I've had such a good life since being adopted! I have two amazing mommies and a brother named Charlie! However, when I turned two I started having chronic seizures, which is commonly genetic in dachshunds like me. My moms stood by my side and spent a lot of money for all my neurologist visits and epilepsy medications. Although I now have brain damage, that doesn't stop me from enjoying my life! I just act like a puppy always, which isn't a bad thing at all if you ask me or my family. I love to be playful and cuddle under blankets with the people I love.
I recently went for a checkup and got a physical exam. The vet discovered that my limp leg had caused a tendon to rip. It's really uncomfortable and it makes me not want to walk. Now I'm starting to gain weight and the vet said that will make me develop arthritis in my joints which will eventually cause me to stop walking completely!
Now that my seizures are under control and my brain is stabilized, I just want to play and run around with my brother Charlie! My mommies are so upset and feel terrible because they are struggling with all my vet bills. They love me and just want me to live a happy life. I know they will NEVER give up on me. They never have.
Anything you can do to help me is so greatly appreciated!
