Teeger, left, and his companion Elke are 8-year-old dachsunds who lost their home because of their owner’s poor health. These little dogs are lifelong companions who want to be adopted together. Teeger has a brindle smooth coat, and Elke is a lovely silver-merle wirehaired doxy. They’re very friendly but don’t care for cats or other small animals. Teeger and Elke are sweet and loving dogs who deserve a great home for their remaining years.
