Biscuit is a Dachshund dog. All her life she has been used to produce countless numbers of puppies, China. But when she became too old to pursue this mission, she did not obtain her well-deserved retirement. Instead, it was destined for the slaughterhouse, for the consumption of its meat.
An association saved Biscuit just in time
A British organization, specializing in the rescue of Dachshunds, then intervened. She is called the DMT Dachsund Rescue and Support Group. The association recovered, repatriated, and relocated Biscuit. The Dachshund was welcomed into the home of Sally Maclean.
Sally Maclean had Dachshunds as a child, but hadn’t had dogs since she was an adult. Biscooked was his very first. “There are thousands of dogs each year that end up being killed. But she thwarted the odds and was saved“, she said, in words reported by Echo.
A gradual but complicated adaptation
After spending his life being considered cattle, it was difficult for Biscuit to find his bearings in a house, with a human having love to spare. After 9 months at Sallythe female dog has made a lot of progress, but there is still a long way to go.
“Although she is a happy dog, she is still shy and nervous around people, flinches at loud noises, and is insecure about dogs she doesn’t know. I can’t imagine the horrors she witnessed and the horrible life she led, but now she is safe, loved and living her best life.“, Told Sally.
Sally adopted another dog to keep Biscuit company
Sally noticed that his dog felt lonely. Biscuit had indeed spent his whole life in the company of other dogs. The owner then decided to adopt a second Dachshund, named Florence. The presence of this animal has done a lot of good to Biscuit.
Today, Sally decided to get involved alongside the volunteers of the association who saved his dog. She hopes, in turn, to help Dachshunds intended for consumption.
