Meet Shorty. You'd never know today that this friendly and forgiving dachshund had braved life-threatening injuries. Hurt by a much larger dog, Shorty was left fighting for survival. The fragile pup was rushed to the local vet, but there was no easy treatment to be offered. He would need major surgery in order to pull through. The vet reached out to Best Friends, and Shorty was soon on his way to the clinic at the Sanctuary. He was taken right away to surgery where work began to repair the damage to his body. Shortyâ'TMs first few days were rocky, and he needed lots of pain medication to stay comfortable. But after that initial rough patch, he began recovering beautifully.
