These 21 dachshunds were saved through the initiative of a dachshund rescue organization. These poor dogs had non-contagious mange when found. Fortunately, being rescued will assure them of treatment.
For those who plan to breed dogs, please do consider if you could really shoulder the responsibility in order to avoid these kinds of horrible events.

“In Charlotte, North Carolina, a dachshund rescue organization came to the aid of 21 dachshunds in dire need; ranging in ages from four months to one year. Their owner, a backyard breeder apparently had been over her head, and sadly the victims were the innocent puppies.
Chapman’s Dachshund Rescue knew nothing about the details of the dogs when the owner called and drove out on Thursday evening. “When we arrived we were in shock when they handed over 21 puppies – ages 4 months to 1 year old all with mange. At the time we didn’t know if it was Sarcoptic which is contagious or Demodectic which is not contagious.” Fortunately the dogs suffer from the non contagious mange and are already being treated. By Friday morning, all of the pups had their first treatments. The adorable little ones are expected to show improvements in their health and their coats within a month. All of the miniature dachshunds have been described as being very sweet.”
