Schatzel was a dachshund born in 1992. She lived the first part of her life with an elderly woman in New York City. For all of her life she was very uncomfortable walking on grass and, for the most part, tried to stay on the sidewalk and driveway -- definitely a city girl. After her owner died, she went through a series of foster homes and eventually found her way to CCDR in 2003. We helped transport her part of the way to her foster home in Delaware. It wasn't long before we telephoned the foster home and asked them to send her back to us!

Schatzel was very smart and was the most frenetic, active dachshund we've ever seen. Even at 14 years old, she could be up on the kitchen table in two leaps. She was devoted to Jim -- Cheryl called her the "Velcro Dog." She much preferred the house to outdoors -- she would only venture out in the best weather (hence the denim diaper in one of the pictures).
