From Florida Dachshund Rescue:
Little Cain came to FLDR a very, very sick little 9 pound 4 ounce boy. He was picked up at a kill shelter in Clanton, AL, where he had been given no treatment and we were told his owners turned him in because he had seizures and they didn't want to deal with them.
Cathy, a wonderful lady, who works at the vet in Montgomery, AL, who assists in our Doxie rescue efforts went and picked him up and took him to the clinic where tests were run and treatment was begun. He probably never had seizures but some of the other problems he had could have appeared to be seizures.
This little boy was diagnosed with severe Pancreatitis and could hardly be touched - it hurt so bad. He also had severe difficulty in breathing and his liver enzymes were badly out of control. In spite of the fact that he was picked up on Tuesday, May 4, 2004 and passed over the Bridge the night of May 7, 2004, he knew he was loved for those last few days.
He may have come from a place where he was not taken care of, but that tiny little boy had a very big heart and he stole Cathy's heart in just those few days. Even though it was painful for him to be touched, Cain welcomed Cathy's touch and somehow knew she loved him. His time with FLDR was very short but I believe he knew Cathy loved him, wanted to help him and maybe even knew that she planned to take him home with her forever. His tiny little body was just not strong enough to endure all his health problems that had been allowed to go not just untreated but undiagnosed. Little Cain, you were loved and someday you'll see Cathy again.
