Will is not a dachshund, but still he is. Why? I try to explain.
A szentendrei gyepmesteri telepet támogató, idős hölgy, Vilma néni három tacskó védencünknek segített németországi otthont keresni saját kapcsolatain keresztül úgy, hogy minden, a szervezéssel összefüggő költséget átvállalt. Ezek a kutyák abban az időben itthon nem nagyon voltak kelendőek, sőt! Cassie, az idős hosszú szőrű tacskó szuka, Csinger, a fiatal, de félénk szálkás szőrű tacskó szuka és Priusz, az Illatos útról mentett, erőteljesen problémásnak, "idegbetegnek" titulált tacskó keverék kan kaphatott így egymást követően esélyt. Mindannyian boldog, gazdis kutyák mostanra.
The old lady called Vilma who helps the dogs of the dog pound of Szentendre also helped three of our dogs to find their new homes in Germany. She used all of her connection and covered all cost in relation with organising their trip. Those dogs were not really demaned here in Hungary at that time. Cassie, the old long-haired dachshund female, Csinger, the young but shy wire-haired dachshund female and Prius, the dachshund mix said to be highly problematic and "neurotic" at the dog pound of Budapest known as Illatos út. They got a new chance and live a happy life in another country now.
A három kutyánk viszont virtuálisan "elvette a lehetőséget" három szentendrei gyepmesteri telepen várakozó kutya elől, így úgy tartottuk korrektnek, ha onnan átveszünk egy kutyát, akit "tacskóként" tartunk és keressük számára az új otthont. A választás rám hárult. Rólam tudni kell, hogy nem szeretem az egyszerű megoldásokat...
These three dogs however took the chance virtually from three dogs from the dog pound of Szentendre so we thought it fair to take over a dog from the pound who was to be considered as a dachshund. I had to make the decision. And it is a fact that I do not like simple things...
Will was born in a forest and he was raised there without any human contact. It was extremely difficult even for the dog-catcher to collect him. He had no human touch in the kennel either as Will did not really wanted to be close to humans. I managed to move him into the kennelbox without having to sedate him - I do not believe in things like that. This must have been the very first time when he had to come into contact with a human and he was awake.
Will is a young adult, middle sized, spitz mix male. Untouchable. He will never be perfect as he lost the most sensitive time in her life. He did not meet humans at that time. It is not his fault, it is our fault. Will is a half-wild dog. He loves running around, playing with other dogs but he does not need any human contact.
His rehabilitation programme started a year ago but now we got stuck. Will takes goodies from the hand of those whom he knows and learned to step onto our laps for some dog bites but you can only touch him when he is driven into a corner. But otherwise he is vaccinated, has an identity chip and he is also castrated.
We are trying to find a very dedicated family for him where there is possibly another friendly female dog whom he can adore as his leader in some days, where the fence is like of a prison (safe as if Will escapes there is no way back) and where his rehabiliation programme can be continued. Will can become a sort of "family dog" even if we do not really think of the classical terminology. To be honest: personally I do not believe that there is such a family around - anywhere in the world - but maybe... I would like to be disappointed - and let him move away.
